The Las Vegas Raiders and New Orleans Saints face off on Sunday in an NFL showdown at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. When these two teams faced off in 2020 it was the Raiders that secured the 34-24 victory.
The Raiders sit with a 2-4 record overall, and they are coming off a big win in the last game. The offense put up 38 points against the Houston Texans and that was enough to secure the 18 point victory. Josh Jacobs had another big game, finishing with 20 carries for 143 yards and three touchdowns. The Raiders are averaging 27.2 points, while their defense is giving up 25 points per game. The offense is ranked 3rd in the league, the defense just hasn’t been good enough for them to have consistent success.
On the other side of this matchup is the Saints, who sit with a 2-5 record overall, and they have lost two games in a row. In the last game against the Arizona Cardinals, the defense again was awful, giving up 42 points. Quarterback Andy Dalton looked decent, but turnovers were an issue. Dalton completed 30 of his 47 passes for 361 yards, four touchdowns, and three interceptions. The Saints are averaging 25 points, while their defense is giving up 28.6 points per game. In this game, the defense is going to need to be good. With Dalton under center, they probably don't want to get into a shootout here, or this could be a long game.
The Raiders are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games in October. The Saints are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games overall. The over is 4-0 in the Raiders last four games overall. The over is 4-0 in the Saints last four games overall.
These are both teams that have bad defenses, but their offense is good, and there will be no shortage of scoring in this game. The Raiders scored 38 points in the last game, and they are going to get close to that number in this game. This game is going to be a shootout. Back the over to cash here.
