Last Updated: a day ago

We’ve got an inter-conference matchup between the Green Bay Packers (2-2) and Las Vegas Raiders (1-3) on tap for Monday Night Football in Week 5.

The Packers are coming off a poor performance in a 34-20 loss to the Lions on Thursday Night Football, while the Raiders came close to erasing a 17-point deficit in a 24-17 defeat to the Chargers.

Here’s a look at our favorite Green Bay vs Las Vegas betting tips for Monday Night Football.

Packers vs Raiders MNF Odds

MNF odds are provided by DraftKings Sportsbook as of Tuesday, Oct. 3, at 1 p.m. ET.

The Packers open as 2.5-point road favorites against an inferior Raiders team. While there’s a good chance that Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) will be back in action for the Raiders, Green Bay’s defense should also be bolstered by the likely return of standout cornerback Jaire Alexander.

The total comes in at 44.5 points, which feels a bit low for a Raiders game. This defense has struggled this season, ranking 30th in EPA per play allowed.

Monday Night Football Pick of the Day

The Over looks like the sharp play with Garoppolo likely returning for this game.

Packers vs Raiders

The Packers had some question marks coming into the season surrounding quarterback Jordan Love. Still, the former Utah State signal-caller has played relatively well, ranking 10th in EPA per play with eight touchdowns and three interceptions through four games.

What’s impressive is that most of this performance has come without Aaron Jones and Christian Watson. These are the two most explosive weapons on the Packers offense, each of whom returned in last week’s loss to the Lions. However, they were both on a snap count, which likely won’t be the case this week.

That’s great news against a Raiders’ defense that ranks 30th in EPA per play allowed vs the pass. We should see Love turn in a more efficient outing than we saw against the Lions.

Las Vegas will likely have more success through the air with Garoppolo back in the fold, who should continue feeding Davante Adams with targets, especially in his first game against his former team.

This game has the makings of a shootout.

Monday Night Football Predictions

Packers 27, Raiders 21

Love had a tough time against the Lions because he was consistently pressured by stud edge-rusher Aidan Hutchinson. While the Raiders have a standout rusher in Maxx Crosby, they still rank only 19th in pass-rush grade, per PFF.

We could see Love have more time in this one, which should allow the Packers to be more efficient on offense, setting up opportunities for big plays downfield to Watson.

Even though Alexander should help out the Packers pass defense, there’s a good chance that the Raiders will be able to move the ball on the ground with Josh Jacobs. The Packers rank 27th in Rush EPA, so this is the likely path for the Raiders to find success offensively.

This should be a close game, but I have the Packers edging out the Raiders here.

Monday Night Football Bet Tips

Here are a few betting tips to consider before making your Week 5 Monday Night football wagers:

  • The Over is 3-1 in Packers’ games this season.
  • The listed total will likely increase once Garoppolo is confirmed to return.
  • The Raiders have a below-average pass-rush.

Monday Night Football Best Bets

Over 44.5 (-110)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

While I like the Packers to win this game, the best bet looks like the Over 44.5 points right now.

There’s a good chance that we’ll see this line increase the moment that Garoppolo is announced as ready to return, so jumping on the Over early in the week looks like a sharp move.

The reason why I’m so optimistic that Jimmy G will be back in action is because we’ve only seen players miss one game due to concussion. Some examples include Jakobi Meyers, Jaylen Waddle, and Anthony Richardson.

Hop on this play early before it gets to 46 to get some closing line value.
