The Las Vegas Raiders and New Orleans Saints both made trades to win this year, but so far they haven’t been working out. Sure, Davante Adams and Chris Olave have been good for their respective teams, but 2-4 and 2-5 is not good enough. This might be a kitchen sink game for both teams that desperately need a win and don’t have their first-round pick for next season.

Let’s check out the odds for a few prop bets for this game that the Raiders are a 1.5 point favorite in. 

Best Props for Raiders vs. Saints

  • Josh Jacobs Over 85.d5 Yards (-114)
  • Davante Adams Over 83.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
  • Andy Dalton Over 32.5 Pass Attempts (-120)

Josh Jacobs Over 85.5 Yards

Remember back to the preseason for a moment. Josh Jacobs had seven touches in the Hall of Fame Game and it looked like he could be cut. Now, he is one of the best running backs in the NFL and could be saving the Raiders season. Last week he had 20 carries for 143 yards and three touchdowns. He is going to get the rock a lot this week and will come through against the Saints defense that allows 4.6 yards per carry. 

Davante Adams Over 83.5 Receiving Yards (-115)

The Raiders got Adams this offseason, and it seems like he and Derek Carr are on the same page now. Last week, Adams led the team with eight catches, while the next highest was Hunter Renfrow with three. Carr will force the ball Adams’ way again and he will have a repeat of his 95 yard performance last week. Marshon Lattimore is New Orleans’ best corner and he is out this week. 

Andy Dalton Over 32.5 Pass Attempts

Jameis Winston is healthy, but Dennis Allen is sticking with Andy Dalton and clearly he is trusting him to make plays at the quarterback. Last week, they fell behind and Dalton threw two pick sixes, but he kept throwing and ended the game with 47 attempts. The Raiders will be able to score, and Dalton will have to throw to keep up.
