Ravens vs Raiders Monday Night Football Best Bets

What an incredible start to the NFL season. We had a ton of underdogs cover and win outright in Week 1. Can the Raiders pull off the same at home in Vegas with a full crowd at the Big Roomba?

The Ravens have been decimated by injuries during training camp and come into the season limping, at best. However, Baltimore still has a strong defense and Lamar Jackson. They’re currently favored by 4 points against the Raiders.

Meanwhile, the Raiders are a team in flux. The offense has a ton of young weapons, although Josh Jacobs may miss this game due to an illness. We’ll check on his status come game time, but it seems as though new RB Kenyan Drake will have a bigger role than we anticipated in Week 1. 

The Raiders defense has a new defensive coordinator in Gus Bradley, who has had success in the past against Jackson and the Ravens. The actual talent on defense for Vegas is and will be an issue throughout the season, but there’s a chance they perform well tonight.

This is the first ever true home game for the Raiders in Las Vegas and the crowd should be absolutely electric. Vegas, Monday Night, Primetime. Everyone is going to be liquored up and excited for this one. Don’t discount the crowd noise. It could be a real factor.

Here’s out best bets for the MNF opener….
