Las Vegas is feeling good about moving to 2-0 on Monday night. Sure it would have bene more exciting to have their Las Vegas debut not during a global pandemic but they will take the win.
New England is off a loss and looking much more mortal this season. I was surprised that they are such significant favourites here.
This is an interesting matchup. I am not sure just how good the Raiders are but we will get a better sense after this one.
Las Vegas Raiders
Short week for the Raiders this week but they are feeling good after upsetting New Orleans. They were down on Monday night 10-0 and 17-7 before knotting things up by halftime. Then in the second half they were mostly in control.
Derek Carr had another very good game to start the season. Through two games he is completing 73% of his passes and he has yet to throw an interception. Now all he has to do is unlock rookie receiver Henry Ruggs more often.
I love the way the Raiders are committed to running the ball with Josh Jacobs. They keep a nice balance and that helps Carr a lot. Jacobs has yet to break a big run but those will come eventually.
So far the defense has held by just being solid, keeping the play in front of them. They are giving up a bunch of yards and not making big plays. They are going to have to improve if the team wants to push Kansas City in the AFC West.
This is a nice chess match with Jon Gruden vs. Bill Belichick.
New England Patriots
The Pats lost at Seattle on Sunday night. The defense let them down more than the offense though there were moments where you are reminded it is not Tom Brady back there.
That is not because Cam Newton has been bad. He has actually been very productive, especially running the ball. He has more carries than any of the running backs though and that is probably not a good thing.
Cam has a strong arm but the Patriots are not loaded with guys that can take advantage of that. He made one long toss to Julian Edelman where they caught the defense napping but they more than that.
The defense was shredded by Seattle last week. The numbers were better against Miami so the truth is probably somewhere in the middle. That is kind of where Vegas is too.
New England is not the best team in the AFC East this season, that is Buffalo. I put this one as more of a 50/50 game and will be looking to fade.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Las Vegas +6
In this one I think they are going to be able to cool Carr down some. I see it as a great spot for Jacobs to have a big game. Last week was very efficient in the run game. I want to pick the Raiders to win but at the very least they keep it close.
