Winner: Las Vegas Raiders
Denver Broncos (+120) v LV Raiders (-140)
Quite simply, I would be shocked to see the Raiders fall to 0-4. The biggest threat to Las Vegas today is the defense of the Denver Broncos. QB Derek Carr has to force feed newly acquired WR Davante Adams, and it needs to be a priority this week if The Raiders want to win. QB Russell Wilson has been uninspiring through his first 3 career games as a Bronco and despite going up against a substandard Raiders defense, there’s no reason to indicate that he’ll explode in this matchup, with an O/U total of 45 this week.
Winner: Seattle Seahawks
Seattle Seahawks (+150) v Detroit Lions (-175)
Detroit is banged up on offense. RB De’Andre Swift, WR Amon-Ra St Brown, and WR D.J Chark are all OUT for this contest. It’s worth noting that QB Jared Goff has some weapons still in RB Jamaal Williams and TE T.J Hockenson, with the latter still looking to get his feet wet in what has been a slow start to the year for him. QB Geno Smith is one of seven QBs in the league with a passer-rating over 100, and has played relatively well through three weeks. The Lions 25th overall defense won’t be one to suddenly stop that today.
