I’ve gone back and forth on this game, but it came to me that the Bills, while sitting at 3-0, haven’t played much in terms of stiff competition (with the Rams and Dolphins a combined 1-6), and the toughest opponent the Bills had, the 2-1 Rams, erased a 28-3 deficit with 29 unanswered points before the Bills woke up to steal the win late. Say what you want about Las Vegas, but the Raiders showed some magic in their opening home game against the Saints and received their first lumps of the season against New England and I expect that experience to serve the Raiders well here. I expect Josh Jacobs to pound the ball and for the combination of Carr, Waller and Hunter Renfrow to make up for the loss of Henry Ruggs III should he not be able to go again. I think the Raiders keep this one close if not win it outright, so I’ll take the Las Vegas Raiders and the points in this one.
