The Las Vegas Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles square off in week 7 NFL action from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday afternoon.

The Philadelphia Eagles have had extra time to prepare for this one after a 28-22 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their last game. Jalen Hurts has thrown for 1,480 yards, 8 touchdowns and 4 interceptions on 62.5% passing while also leading the Eagles in rushing with 300 rushing yards and 5 scores. Miles Sanders also has 270 rushing yards for the Eagles this season while DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins each have 300+ receiving yards this season. Dallas Goedert also has 216 receiving yards while four other Eagles have at least 100 receiving yards this season. Alex Singleton leads Philadelphia’s defensive unit with 67 total tackles while Darius Slay has a pair of interceptions and Javon Hargrave has a team-high 6 sacks on the year.

The Las Vegas Raiders come into this game fresh off of a 34-24 win over the Denver Broncos in their last matchup. Derek Carr’s thrown for 1,946 yards, 10 touchdowns and 4 interceptions on 64.2% passing while Josh Jacobs and Peyton Barber have combined to rush for 318 yards with Jacobs putting up a team-high 175 yards and 4 scores. Henry Ruggs III leads the Raiders with 445 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns while Darren Waller, Hunter Renfrow and Bryan Edwards each have 300+ receiving yards as well this season. Denzel Perryman leads the Raiders with 72 total tackles while Maxx Crosby has a team-high 5 sacks on the year.

Philadelphia is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as a road underdog and 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games following a loss while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record. Las Vegas is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record and 20-42-1 ATS in their last 63 games as a favorite while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 home games.

This is an interesting game as the Eagles hold the edge on the ground while the Raiders have one of the best passing attacks in the NFL. With that said, the Eagles’ success this season has all come on the road and the Raiders, while they’ve done well to sit at 4-2, have failed to cover the number in the two games that they’ve been favored this season. It’s little things like that that can give us the edge and I’m taking it with the Eagles and the points here.
