NFL Betting Preview: Las Vegas Raiders vs. New England Patriots
October 15, 2023
The New England Patriots will travel to Paradise, Nevada in week 6 of the NFL season to play against the Las Vegas Raiders, a series that has had a lot of history dating back to the “Tuck Rule” game in the playoffs in the 2001 playoff game. The game will take place at Allegiant Stadium and will air on CBS at 4:05 PM ET.
New England enters this game with a record of 1-4 following a 0-34 loss at home against the New Orleans Saints while failing to cover the 2-point spread as a home favorite in week 5 of the NFL season. The Patriots failed to score a point while compiling a total of 156 yards offensively which included 132 passing yards and 45 rushing yards while allowing 34 points and 304 total yards defensively which included 183 passing yards and 136 rushing yards. Mac Jones led the team in passing, completing 12 of 22 attempts for 110 yards and two interceptions. Thamondre Stevenson led the team in rushing with eight carries for 24 yards. Kendrick Bourne led the team in receiving, catching two of five targets for 43 yards.
The Las Vegas Raiders enter this game with a record of 2-3 following a 17-13 win at home against the Green Bay Packers while covering the 1-point spread as a home favorite in week 5 of the NFL season. Las Vegas scored 17 points while compiling a total of 279 yards offensively which included 208 passing yards and 96 rushing yards while allowing 13 points and 285 total yards defensively which included 182 passing yards and 110 rushing yards. Jimmy Garoppolo led the team in passing, completing 22 of 31 attempts for 208 yards with a touchdown and an interception while rushing for four yards. Josh Jacobs led the team in rushing with 20 carries for 69 yards and a touchdown while adding five receptions for 20 yards. Jakobi Meyers led the team in receiving, catching seven of ten targets for 75 yards and a touchdown.
BookMaker has the Las Vegas Raiders listed as 3-point favorites at home against the New England Patriots on Sunday afternoon in week 6 of the NFL season. New England has won seven of the last nine and two of the last three games in the series while going 5-3-1 ATS in the last nine and 2-1 ATS in the last two meetings. The Patriots are 1-4 ATS overall, 1-1 ATS on the road, and 0-3 ATS as an underdog while the Las Vegas Raiders are 2-3 ATS overall, 1-1 ATS at home, and 1-1 ATS as a favorite on the year.
Neither team is likely to make the playoffs this season which is where this rivalry began over 20 years ago when Tom Brady was in his first season, the game started the dynasty for the Patriots, and New England has been the better team in the series since then as they have won seven of the last nine and two of the last three meetings. I look for that to continue when they travel to face off against the Las Vegas Raiders on the road in week 6 of the NFL season which is why I am taking the Patriots +3 on Sunday afternoon.
