The Packers are heading to Las Vegas to close out Week 5, and it brings together 2 teams who can really use a win.
Looking for angles to bet on tonight? We have you covered!
As our Picks for today would show, we believe the Raiders will win the game. However, the total is interesting as well. It’s currently set at 45.5. Both defenses have struggled at times this year, but big offensive players on both teams have been dealing with injuries. With the Packers struggling defensively recently and the Raiders having a poor defense in general, look for both teams to have success on the offensive side of the ball.
The Packers have allowed opponents to rush for over 200 yards twice this season already, and now they have to face one of the best running backs in the league in Josh Jacobs. Jacobs has been a bell-cow for the Raiders for years, and if the Raiders want to avoid dropping to 1-4, they’ll need Jacobs to step up. It’s worth noting Jimmy G is coming off a concussion, so there’s every reason to think Jacobs will have all the chances to leave his mark on this game. As of this writing, Jacobs’s rushing attempts currently sits at 17.5 and his rushing yards number is currently 73.5.
It’s also an obvious revenge game for stud wide receiver Devante Adams. Adams spent the 8 years of his career in Green Bay. He’s been targeted a whopping 20 times the last 2 games, and there’s no reason to think that’ll slow down at all in this game. Garoppolo and Adams had a marvelous connection in their last game together against Pittsburgh, where Adams piled up 13 catches for 172 yards and 2 touchdowns. Adams has had no less than 6 catches in a game this year, and his reception total is sitting at 6.5. His receiving yardage total is at 80.5 as of this writing.
Christian Watson is dealing with a hamstring injury. It’s important to remember that one person’s prop markets impact the rest of the markets in the game. Jordan Love would likely have less passing yards without his top weapon to throw to, but his passing attempts market may be higher without his starting running back playing. Of course, AJ Dillon is likely to have more yards with Aaron Jones out, and any other Packers wide receiver is likely to post higher yard and reception totals if Watson doesn’t play.
