The Las Vegas Raiders lost their 2nd straight game and dropped to 6-5 on the season after being defeated by the Atlanta Falcons, 43-6, this past Sunday. Las Vegas struggled with turnovers throughout the game and could not fight back after the Falcons took a 30-6 lead with 2:00 minutes left in the 3rd quarter. Las Vegas was outgained by Atlanta by a 304-243 margin and lost the turnover battle by a 5-1 margin in the loss. Leading the way for the Raiders was WR Hunter Renfrow who had 7 receptions for 53 yards.
On the season, Las Vegas is averaging 26.5 ppg on 368.5 total yards per game (242.8 passing yds/g; 125.6 rushing yds/g). Offensively, Las Vegas has been led by RB Josh Jacobs who has 782 yards & 9 TD’s on 206 carries. Jacobs has also been a threat in the passing game as he has 27 receptions for 175 yards.

Defensively, Las Vegas is allowing their opponents to average 29.0 ppg on 384.5 total yards per game (271.1 passing yds/g; 113.4 rushing yds/g).
The New York Jets are still searching for their first win of the season as they dropped to 0-11 on the season after being defeated by the Miami Dolphins, 20-3, this past Sunday. New York’s offense was once against non-existent and the Jets could not fight back after Miami went into halftime with a 13-3 lead. New York was outgained by Miami by a 345-260 margin and committed two turnovers in the loss. Leading the way for the Jets was RB Frank Gore who had 74 rushing yards on 18 carries.
On the season, New York is averaging 13.8 ppg on 289.0 total yards per game (191.5 passing yds/g; 97.5 rushing yds/g). Offensively, New York has been led by the WR duo of Jamison Crowder (35 rec, 456 yards, 3 TD) & Breshad Perriman (22 rec, 352 yards, 3 TD). Also chipping in for the Jets receivers have been Denzel Mims (17 rec, 284 yards) and Braxton Berrios (24 rec, 223 yards, 2 TD). QB Sam Donald has completed 58.7% of his passes for 1,242 yards, 3 TD, & 8 INT. Leading the way for the Jets backfield has been Frank Gore who has 521 rushing yards & 1 TD on 141 carries.
Defensively, New York is allowing their opponents to average 29.3 ppg on 403.7 total yards per game (292.7 passing yds/g; 111.0 rushing yds/g).
The Raiders are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games vs. AFC opponents and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games. The Jets are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up loss and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 December games.
Las Vegas is coming off their worst game of the season, however, this is still an above average team that has plenty of offensive weapons to put points up in a hurry. New York once again looked lost offensively against Miami and at this point and it didn’t look much better this pass week despite getting Sam Donald back under center. Las Vegas is still playing for a playoff spot and as I think they have a big bounce back after last weeks embarrassing loss to Atlanta, I think the Raiders win this one by double-digits and covers this large home spread. Good Luck!
