Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders are one of just two teams in the AFC without a loss, and they’ll try to keep it going against a Miami Dolphins team that may be without Tua Tagovailoa in Week 3. 

Miami was shutout in Week 2 against the Buffalo Bills, and if Tagovailoa can’t go in Week 3, the Raiders will be massive favorites in this game. WynnBET Sportsbook has not released the spread for this matchup in the wake of Tagovailoa’s injury, but the Raiders may be the pick regardless after their hot start. 

Derek Carr is looking like a bonafide MVP candidate, and the Raiders picked up tough wins over the Baltimore Ravens (who beat the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2) and the Pittsburgh Steelers (who beat the Bills in Week 1). 

It's worth noting that Carr also suffered an injury on Sunday, but finished the game. Raiders' coach Jon Gruden indicated that he believes his quarterback will play against the Dolphins.

Here are how the odds look for Sunday’s matchup:

Dolphins vs. Raiders Prediction and Pick

The spread in this game is going to hinge on Tagovailoa’s availability, but I like the Raiders to win this game if you wanted to bet them to win outright and take the -225 juice ($225 to win $100).

Miami’s offense has been stuck in mud this season even with Tua under center, and I don’t think that will change against a Raiders team that has actually made some big plays the past two weeks against Baltimore and Pittsburgh. 

If Brissett starts, the Raiders should roll, as Miami couldn’t even muster a point against the Bills on Sunday with him under center. The Dolphins need Tagovailoa healthy, but they also need to find out what is going to make this offense go behind a subpar offensive line.
