Raiders RB Josh Jacobs
is listed as questionable with an ankle injury. He did not practice Wednesday, but does have a chance to play Sunday. If he sits, Devontae Booker
and Jalen Richard
would pick up the close to 19 carries that Jacobs is averaging per game this season.
With Lamical Perine
on IR with an ankle injury, it’s Frank Gore
‘s backfield now. Gore was the clear-cut lead back for the Jets in Week 12, tallying 18 carries for 74 yards. Expect another hefty workload for the veteran.
The Raiders are coming off their worst output of the season, putting up just six points against the Falcons last week. LV QB Derek Carr
should sling the ball around Sunday, facing a Jets D that has allowed an average of 292.7 passing yards per game this season.
Carr has also thrown for at least two TDs in seven of the Raiders’ 11 games, while the Jets have allowed two-plus passing TDs in seven of 11 as well.
NYJ QB Sam Darnold
returned as the Jets’ starter against the Dolphins in Week 12, to the tune of 197 yards on 16-for-27 passing and two interceptions. The Raiders D sits in the middle of the pack, having allowed an average of 271.1 passing yards per game and at least two passing TDs in four of its last six games.
Keep an eye on the weather report as these passing stats could all be thrown out the window if the wind is an issue on Sunday afternoon.
The weather report for MetLife Stadium calls for intermittent clouds and a high of 43 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s the potential for up to 38 mph wind gusts that could affect this contest.
While I absolutely hate giving up close to 4-to-1 odds to take the Raiders moneyline, I also would hate to lose a best bet by the hook.
My play on this game is to buy half-a-point in order to get the Raiders at -7, but that’s not an option within the confines of this betting guide.
It’s very likely that the Raiders win anyway, so I’m comfortable playing this as my best bet here.
Even though I don’t like that this spread crossed the key number of 7, it’s still a bet to consider. The Jets have lost by an average of 15.5 points per game this season, while the Raiders are 3-1 ATS as a favorite in 2020.
When one team, in the Raiders, will likely have to do most of the heavy lifting in order to hit the over, I’ll pass on betting the total. Las Vegas is averaging 26.5 PPG, but it’s the fact that the Jets have put up a league-worst 13.8 PPG that I’m not touching this over/under.
