Odds/Point Spread: Las Vegas Raiders -3.5, Total Odds: 40

An argument could be made on either side of this one given that O’Connell and Bennett both performed admirably at quarterback for the Raiders and the Rams. The Raiders shined out defensively and gave off a much faster overall impression. The Rams should be proud of themselves after surrendering more than 200 rushing yards the previous week, but given what happened, one must still support the Raiders and the spread.

Las Vegas Raiders vs Los Angeles Rams Betting Trends

The Rams are opting not to field many starters, including key figures like wide receiver Cooper Kupp, defensive tackle Aaron Donald, and quarterback Matthew Stafford. On paper, the Raiders’ backup players appear to hold an advantage over the Rams’ substitutes. The Rams have the highest count of rookies (36) among all NFL teams.

The Raiders displayed an impressive performance during the preseason opener, notably highlighted by O’Connell’s exceptional play. Likely, O’Connell will again see significant playing time this week, potentially providing the Las Vegas team with an offensive edge against a relatively inexperienced and less impressive Rams defense.

Las Vegas Raiders vs Los Angeles Rams: In the initial preseason games for the Rams and the Raiders, the total points scored surpassed the set thresholds, with one team in each match tallying 34 points. While the Raiders’ defense showcased prowess against the 49ers, particularly considering the quarterbacks fielded by San Francisco, there’s a possibility of regression in the upcoming game. Conversely, the Rams’ defense might encounter difficulties against O’Connell if he maintains the level of performance demonstrated in the previous week. It’s suggested to consider betting on the total points over 39.5 (-110).
