The Buffalo Bills and Las Vegas Raiders face off in a key Week 4 NFL matchup from Allegiant Stadium.
The Buffalo Bills come into this game with a perfect 3-0 record but there has to be some question marks after what happened late in the last game. At halftime of the last game against the Los Angeles Rams, the Bills were up 21-3 and it looked like they were going to cruise. In the second half the Bills struggled with their defense and if it wasn’t for a gift pass interference call, they probably would be sitting with a 2-1 record right now. Bills quarterback Josh Allen has had a big season and each of the last two games he has thrown four touchdowns. In this game no matter what the Bills do they can’t let up or they could be flirting with danger again.
On the other side of this matchup is the Las Vegas Raiders who won their first two games of the season before losing their last game against the New England Patriots. The defense for the Raiders has been an issue all season but the offense has been good. On the season the Raiders are averaging 29.3 points per game while the defense is giving up 30 points per game. Darren Waller was banged up last week for the Raiders but it seems he is more healthy heading into this game which is a big key because he has had a big season.
The under is 8-2 in the Bills last ten games on grass. The Bills are 7-2-2 against the spread in their last 11 road games. The Raiders are 2-6 against the spread in their last eight against the AFC. The under is 12-4-1 in the Raiders last 17 against the AFC. The Raiders are 3-9 against the spread in their last 12 games played in Week 4.
The Raiders have been overlooked at home so far this year and that is the case again in this one. Look for Waller to be an x-factor in this game and for the Raiders to cover the spread. Throwing a few bucks on the money line also makes a lot of sense.
