Here’s our Packers vs Raiders bet preview for Monday Night Football. With both teams needing a win to stay afloat in their division races, tonight’s MNF game is a big matchup between two middling teams.

Packers vs Raiders Betting Overview

The Green Bay Packers (2-2) are set to face off against the Las Vegas Raiders (1-3) in a Week 5 Monday Night Football showdown at Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas. The game is set to kick off at 8:15 p.m. ET and will be aired on ABC/ESPN. Here’s a breakdown of the betting odds from FanDuel Sportsbook for the Packers vs. Raiders clash and our NFL game predictions.

So far this season, the Packers have had a mixed run, winning two and losing two. They had a strong start with a 3-0 record against the spread (ATS) but stumbled in Week 4, falling to the Detroit Lions 34-20, even as they were favored by 2.5 points. Three out of their four games have gone above the predicted total points.

On the other hand, the Raiders lost 24-17 against the division rivals Chargers last time out. After their Week 1 victory in Denver, the Raiders have faced three consecutive losses, with a 0-2-1 record against the spread. In terms of game totals, the Raiders have seen three unders out of four games.

Packers vs Raiders History

Last time the Packers had a bitter pill to swallow against the Raiders? Way back in ’87 with Forrest Gregg at the helm. Fun fact: Gregg was actually playing when these teams first squared off in Super Bowl II. The Raiders then snagged the next five wins, but the Packers have been on a roll, bagging the last eight meetings between the two.

Packers vs Raiders Bet Predictions Packers vs Raiders Score: Packers 24 – Raiders 20

Packers vs Raiders Moneyline Bet Preview

Considering the odds, betting on the Packers as +115 underdogs looks like the best bet.

With Hobbs out and potentially up to three secondary members sidelined, Packers’ QB Jordan Love might find more opportunities. Conversely, QB Jimmy Garoppolo is back post-concussion. Yet, the possibility of his key receiver, Davante Adams, potentially missing out or being limited due to a shoulder injury makes Las Vegas a risky bet as -135 favourites.

The Packers have faced injury issues of their own, but after getting the extra few days of rest after playing last Thursday, they should come into the matchup fresh. Aaron Jones should be back in the mix after seeing just five carries last week against the Cardinals.

Getting the running game going again should open things up for Jordan Love. Especially having the Raiders’ top CB out for this game, the duo of Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs should get more touches to help move the ball down the field.

Packers vs Raiders Spread Bet Preview

At just +1.5, it doesn’t make too much sense to the take the Packers on the spread when the value lies with the Moneyline. It’s doubtful that the game comes down to just one point, so we like taking the visitors to win outright in this one.

Packers vs Raiders Total Bet Preview

We like the game to go under the posted total of 45.5 as both teams have had trouble moving the ball on the ground, but don’t recommend touching the total in this one.

The Raiders have seen the Under hit in 3 out of 4 games, while the Over was achieved in 3 of 4 Packers games. Notably, in matchups against AFC teams, Green Bay’s games have mostly stayed under, and so have the Raiders’ games against NFC teams.

To note, both the Raiders’ offense and the Packers have struggled to score, with Las Vegas not exceeding 18 points in all their games and the latter averaging 19 points in the last two games. Expect the kickers, Anders Carlson of the Packers and Daniel Carlson of the Raiders, to get multiple chances for field goals.

With both teams struggling in the running game, we expect a lot of third-and-longs that will make it difficult for either team to sustain long drives. Even with the run defense of Green Bay struggling, they can use this opportunity against an anemic run attack to get back on pace.

In their first four games, the Packers have conceded a concerning 621 yards via running, which breaks down to an average of 155.3 yards each game and 4.5 yards with each rush. On the ground, they’ve let 41 first downs slip and have been at the receiving end of five rushing touchdowns.

On the other hand, through the same number of games, Las Vegas has accumulated only 261 yards from running, averaging 65.3 yards per matchup and a mere 3.0 yards on each rush. They’ve achieved 18 first downs running and crossed the end zone twice.

Packers vs Raiders Best Bet

Christian Watson Over 3.5 Receptions at -110
Could this be the breakout week for Christian Watson? At 24, this talented wide receiver was sidelined due to a hamstring issue, causing him to miss the season’s initial three games. However, he made a comeback in the previous game, albeit on restricted playtime. Watson managed two catches out of four attempts, one being a notable 24-yard pass from Jordan Love. While no official word is out about increased game time, he’s completed a full week of practice, especially considering the Packers’ last match was on 11 days ago.

With the Raiders secondary, which ranks 30th while healthy, missing Hobbs and possibly rookie CB Jakorlan Bennett, there is an opportunity for Watson to shine. At 6’5, Watson has a size and strength advantage over the Las Vegas’ secondary that Jordan Love should capitalize on.

Plus, with Aaron Jones not at 100% and AJ Dillon not helping much on the ground, the key for the Packers will be an aerial attack. Watson saw four targets and grabbed two last week on a limited snap count against a better secondary, so he should pull in at least four on route to a Packers victory this week.
