The Las Vegas Raiders are in need of a pick-me-up win after their recent losses, and they are favored to get it this coming Sunday against the hapless New York Jets. But will the Raiders be the Jets’ first-ever victim this season? Check out our preview of this game below.
Betting Preview for the Las Vegas Raiders vs New York Jets Regular Season Week 13 Game on December 6, 2020
Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford
When: Sunday, December 6, 2020, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the Las Vegas Raiders (-8)
Regular Season Record: 6-5
The Raiders failed to recover from a tough loss at home to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 11, as they got decimated in a 43-6 road loss to the Atlanta Falcons over the weekend. The Raiders simply didn’t have it in Week 12, especially quarterback Derek Carr, who committed four of Las Vegas’ five turnovers. Despite suffering back-to-back losses, the Raiders have the best possible cure to their malaise, which is a game against the winless Jets. The Jets are a horrible team from top to bottom, and their being the Jets is enough reason to point out why the Raiders are all set to get back in the win column. After struggling mightily against the Falcons’ defense, Carr can restore his confidence by shredding the Jets’ stop unit that is 30th in the NFL against the pass and last in opponents’ completion percentage.
The Raiders are 3-1 against the spread in their last four road games.
Betting on the New York Jets (+8)
Regular Season Record: 0-11
The Jets are begging for this nightmare of a season to end. In their last outing, they picked up yet another loss after getting defeated by the Miami Dolphins at home in Week 12, 20-3. That game marked the return of Sam Darnold after missing games due to a shoulder injury and he announced his re-insertion under center with two interceptions. He finished the game with 197 passing yards (16/27) and zero touchdowns. He was also sacked three times for a loss of 24 yards. As bad as the Jets have been this season, there is still enough talent on the team to watch out for. Take for example Breshad Perriman and Denzel Mims, who had 79 and 67 receiving yards against the Dolphins, respectively. Darnold can expect a much better outing against Las Vegas’ defense that’s just as bad as the Jets’, especially when dealing with passing attacks.
The under is 3-1 in the Jets’ last four home games.
The Raiders win, 32-21.
