We have reached the first week of the NFL regular season and with that comes the two games that happen on Monday Night Football.
The last game to kick off takes place between the Los Angeles Rams and the Oakland Raiders at Oakland Coliseum. Both teams have high expectations for completely different reasons.
Los Angeles Rams
The Los Angeles Rams had a breakout year last year with Sean McVay and Jared Goff and this offseason they proved they are all in.
They brought in Ndamukong Suh on the defensive side of the ball and resigned Aaron Donald to a massive contract. In this game both of those guys are going to be key and they need to make life really tough on the Raiders offensive line.
On the offensive side of the ball the Rams are led by Jared Goff and Todd Gurley. Last year Goff threw for 3804 yards and 28 touchdowns.
He also did a pretty good job of not turning the ball over only throwing seven interceptions. On the ground they will rely on Gurley who should get a ton of touches in this game.
I would expect the Rams to rely on the run game and that should help open up the passing game for Goff and his good wide receivers.
On the other side of this matchup is the Oakland Raiders who made a lot of changes this offseason and it’s still to be seen if they will be good or bad.
They brought in a new coach in Jon Gruden and he decided to bring in veteran players who some think are beyond the prime of their career.
They couldn’t get Khalil Mack extended to a long term deal and instead they decided to trade him to the Chicago Bears for a couple of first round draft picks.
On the offensive side of the ball the leader is Derek Carr who had a problem with turnovers last year throwing 13 of them.
In this game and this season he is going to need to have a big year because the Raiders are missing some talent on that side of the ball.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Raiders need to find a way to replace Mack and replace him quickly. It’s going to be hard but he was the heart and soul of the defense and now he is gone.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Los Angeles -4
The Raiders made a lot of changes this offseason and I don’t think they are going to work out in their favor, especially in this game.
NFL Free Week 1 Score Prediction: Rams 27 – Raiders 13
I think the Raiders are going to have problems getting any offense going and that will be the difference. The Rams will have no issue winning this game and covering the spread for the fifth matchup in a row between these two teams.
