Ravens-Raiders Betting Notes
- Raiders QB Derek Carr is 4-2 as a starter on Monday Night Football, including wins in his past three Monday starts (via PointsBet).
- The over is 8-0-1 in the Raiders’ last nine games as a home underdog, Andrew Caley of Covers.com relays. Caley notes that Las Vegas ranked 10th in scoring last season and 11th in points per play.
- In that same piece, Caley examines Lamar Jackson’s TD rushing prop of over 0.5 (+120) and finds it to be a value given Jackson’s past history of rushing.
- PJ Walsh of The Action Network (PRO required) notes that until today, oddsmakers haven’t moved the over/under of 51.5 and sharp action was on the under at the number.
