Las Vegas is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a losing record and 20-43-1 ATS in their last 64 games as a favorite over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record.
I get the case that could be made for Washington, but after such a big win over Seattle in primetime, I’m wondering if there’s a bit of a letdown here against a rested Raiders team. The Raiders had a big win of their own, but an extra four days to rest and refocus could be the difference for Las Vegas here. I’llside with the Raiders in this spot.
