Eagles vs Raiders Prediction & NFL Odds for Week 7

by Ricky GrayOctober 20, 2021
  • Derek Carr will pass for over 300 yards.
  • The Raiders will have over 100 yards rushing.
  • The score will go under the projected total.

Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles have had a roller-coaster season. From narrow victories to slight defeats, the team has been unable to maintain consistency. This has been a problem in the past too, but can they finally capitalize against the Raiders?

Las Vegas is essentially the opposite of the Eagles and a much more consistent team. They’ve found ways to win games even without their former head coach. This week they’ll face a stingy Eagles defense who doesn’t give up very many passing yards.

Betting Odds & Lines for This Game

  • Spread: Las Vegas Raiders -3 (-118)
  • MoneyLine: Philadelphia Eagles +147
  • Total: 49

Eagles vs Raiders Prediction & NFL Odds for Week 7

Eagles vs Raiders Prediction: Spread

The Las Vegas Raiders pair good offense, with a strong secondary. Doing this gives them the ability to take a lot of shots downfield. When you can trust your defense to cover for you, your offense becomes multi-dimensional.

Some forget just how good the Las Vegas Raiders offense is. They average 24.5 PPG (13th in the NFL) and 305.3 passing yards per game (third in the NFL). With that kind of offense covering -3 spread should be no sweat. This is especially true if they decide to exploit the Philadelphia rushing defense.

Eagles vs Raiders Prediction: MoneyLine

The Philadelphia Eagles are still trying to figure out what they do best as a team. Their receivers aren’t great and their running game is mediocre. Their running game could be a lot better if they decided to focus on running the ball. On average they pick up 113.67 yards rushing per game, which could be more if they utilized it.

However, the Eagles seem to be more focused on passing, playing right into the Raiders’ hand. The Raiders have a defense that allows just 222.67 passing yards per game (10th in the NFL). We don’t expect that the Eagles will be able to move the ball well against the Raiders on Sunday. Still, the best bet for the MoneyLine would be the Philadelphia Eagles.

Eagles vs Raiders Prediction: Total

The Eagles average just over 22 points per game, while the Raiders average around 24. In the Eagles’ last two games the total has gone under. As we said above, the Eagles just don’t create enough offense to force games over the total. The same goes for the Raiders.

Although the Raiders had an incredible offensive game against the Broncos, that isn’t what the scores usually look like. In the two games before that, both of the totals went well under the expected total. Your best bet in this one is to take the under, considering it will be a close game.

  • Free Prediction: Under 49 (+100)
