Detroit Lions vs Las Vegas Raiders Monday NFL preview & picks

Detroit Lions vs Las Vegas Raiders NFL Preview

Week eight’s Monday Night Football game, unfortunately, may not be the most exciting game. The 5-2 Detroit Lions will host the 3-4 Las Vegas Raiders in a contest predicted by sportsbooks to be an easy win for the Lions. Nonetheless, we have some picks to add some interest.

Detroit Lions vs Las Vegas Raiders preview

While the Lions are undoubtedly the better team, the Las Vegas Raiders will welcome back their quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, for this game. He led the Raiders to two consecutive victories before his injury. Also, a significant reason for the Raiders’ recent success has been their improved defense, and it should perform well in this game. Detroit enters this game after a brutal 38-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, where Baltimore exposed their defense. Las Vegas should do enough to keep this game close. As a result, we favor the underdogs on Monday Night NFL.

Las Vegas Raiders +8


Davante Adams Anytime Touchdown Scorer

Davante Adams is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. Although he has only scored three touchdowns this season, he has scored at least 10 in six of his previous seven seasons. With his starting QB back, he should increase his production. The Lions lack anyone who can effectively cover Adams. The Ravens demonstrated how to exploit the Lions through the air, and we expect the Raiders to capitalize on that. At +137, this is a great value bet.

Sam Laporta Anytime Touchdown Scorer

Sam Laporta is the rookie tight end for the Lions, and he has been outstanding this season. He has caught three touchdowns and has become one of Jared Goff’s favorite red zone targets. The Raiders have struggled to defend the middle of the field all season, where Laporta primarily operates. At +175, we like the rookie to continue his stellar season and score his fourth touchdown of the season.
