Las Vegas Raiders vs. Miami Dolphins: How to bet 2020 Week 16
By Sean Basile
The Las Vegas Raiders are not technically eliminated from the playoffs, and in a must-win game in Week 16, we dive into how to bet the matchup.
We are now down to just two weeks left of the regular season in 2020 and the Las Vegas Raiders have all but been eliminated from postseason contention with their current stretch of four losses in five contests. However, it is not completely out of the realm of possibility that they make the playoffs, so there is still something to play for this week against one of the better opponents they’ve played all year in the Miami Dolphins.
Last week, although we hit the game 3-for-3 against the Chargers with the money line, spread, and over/under, it was another tough loss for this team as they fell t0 rookie quarterback Justin Herbert in overtime. Now they get another rookie quarterback at home in Tua Tagovailoa for the Dolphins, but I think we’re going to see a different result despite what the numbers say about this matchup, and even though Miami is 100% a better football team than the Raiders.
I’m hoping everyone had a very good holiday, so I’m not going to keep you long on this one. I’m going to throw out my numbers for this game and tell you why I’m going to go against them for the most part.
First, let us take a look at Miami, and why every number suggests they should be the pick on Saturday night.
