Free Pick: Washington 5-6 at Las Vegas 6-5 12/5/21

This is an interesting game between two teams that find themselves in the playoff hunt for at least a wild card. Washington is two games behind Dallas in the NFC East and have two games left with the Cowboys. The Raiders trail the Chiefs by a game in the AFC West and they have a game in Kansas City coming up. This is a must win for both teams. The Football Team has won three in a row coming into Vegas and are playing well. Meanwhile, the Raiders are coming off a season saving win over Dallas on Thanksgiving. Let’s see if we can find something to bet.


Las Vegas: 24.5 Total Team Points The Raiders are averaging 24 points and 386 total yards per game. Derek Carr is having a great season and when he is on, he is very good. The Washington defense isn’t real strong in the secondary and are giving up 267 passing yards per outing. So, the Raiders should be able to take care of that matchup.i I’ll take Las Vegas OVER 24.5 team points.

Washington: 23.5 Total Team Points Washington is averaging 21 points per game and they have been efficient on offense during their 3-game winning streak. They are running the ball better and quarterback, Taylor Heinicke, has hit his stride in the passing game, The Las Vegas defense is giving up 27 points per game which has been a problem. I’ll take Washington OVER 23.5 team points.

OVER/UNDER: 49.5 Combined Team Points I took the over on both total team points so why would I take the under. I will take OVER 49.5 combined points.

POINT SPREAD: Las Vegas is a 2.5 point favorite. If you believe Washington has a chance at a wild card, this is a must win for them. They are making the long trip across the country after playing on Monday night, so that could be a factor. The Raiders have had some extra days to prepare because they played in Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. This is a game Las Vegas needs to solidify their playoff chances. All of these factors are pointing to a really interesting game.

AARON’S PICK: Washington OVER 23.5 team points

PAPA DUDES PICK: Las Vegas -2.5
