The Raiders are 1-4 ATS in their last five after an ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last five in Week 12. Las Vegas is 2-6 ATS in their last eight games overall.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys are 4-0 ATS in their last four after a straight-up loss and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 overall. Dallas is 5-11 ATS in their last 16 Thursday games.
PICK: I’m going to try Dallas in this one. The Cowboys are going to need to bounce back from a tepid offensive performance against the Chiefs, though. In that one Dallas came up with 276 total yards with 16 first downs, 5-of-15 on third-down tries and three turnovers. It wasn’t a bad defensive effort on the other side, but not great either.
As for the Raiders, they posted 278 yards against the Bengals with a tepid 1-of-7 on third downs and two turnovers. I like a better offensive game from Vegas here but not quite a cover.
