New Orleans Saints vs Las Vegas Raiders Preview
The Raiders will unveil their new home at Allegiant Stadium on Monday Night Football against the Saints, a side that hasn’t opened the season 2-0 since 2013.
Vegas have opened as +5.5 underdogs in the early market after surviving a scare last week in their 34-30 win over the Panthers.
Josh Jacobs carried the Raiders over the line with 93 yards and three touchdowns, while the defence gave up 128 yards and a pair of touchdowns on the ground to Christian McCaffrey.
The Saints opened with a big win over the Bucs at home, but they now face a tough stretch with star wide receiver Michael Thomas ruled out for the next few weeks due to an ankle injury.
Sean Payton has tremendous depth to fall back on, but after a very quiet game through the air last week, fans are beginning to wonder if we’re starting to see the demise of legendary quarterback, Drew Brees.
With that in mind, the Saints will likely try and run the ball down the Raiders’ throat.
Vegas were great against the run last year, but after McCaffrey’s success last week, it wouldn’t be surprising to watch Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray combine for over 30 touches in an attempt to take some of the pressure off Brees.
These two sides haven’t met since 2016, so there’s very little recent history to help us out when it comes to betting.
Stats wise, however, the Saints allowed the fourth-fewest rushing yards to opponents last year, so the Raiders won’t have things all their own way on the ground this week.
Considering New Orleans also finished last season 7-1 on the road, it becomes increasingly difficult to bet against the Saints.
