Las Vegas Raiders Game Saturday: Raiders vs. 49ers Prediction, Odds, Spread, Line, Over/Under & Betting Info for NFL Preseason Week 3 Game
For the final time in 2021, the Las Vegas Raiders will battle it out in a preseason matchup, this time against another NFC West team. In the third preseason game, the Silver and Black will take on former Bay Area rival, San Francisco, in a game that will be the final push for some players in order to make the 53-man roster.
Las Vegas Raiders vs San Francisco 49ers Odds Preseason Week 3
Las Vegas looked good in the preseason opener at home, beating Seattle pretty soundly, before going to 2-0 against the Los Angeles Rams. In this matchup, the Silver and Black are going into this game as the underdog for the first time this preseason, according to WynnBet. The over/under for this contest is set at 35.5 points, and the Raiders are 3.5 point dogs, so bet accordingly.
Las Vegas Raiders Injury Report vs 49ers Preseason Week 3
Las Vegas has not played some of their key players for all of the preseason, but that could change on Saturday, especially with San Francisco announcing their starters are going to play. We have yet to see the likes of Darren Waller, Josh Jacobs, and Derek Carr on offense, while some of the defensive stars have sat out as well.
In terms of injuries, the Silver and Black have some key players who are dealing with them, including starting guard Richie Incognito, and a host of linebackers. Second-year cornerback Damon Arnette also has a nagging injury, and last week, No. 2 quarterback Marcus Mariota just was not there physically to go.
We will see if that changes Saturday.
Las Vegas Raiders vs 49ers Prediction Preseason Week 3
The Raiders have won both of their preseason games to date, but they have mostly been playing the backups, as both Seattle and Los Angeles kept their elite players on the sidelines. That will not be the case in this one, as the 49ers will start Jimmy Garoppolo, and then turn to rookie Trey Lance, who has looked good under center.
If Las Vegas goes with their starters as well, this should be close early, but Jon Gruden has not tipped his hand as to whether or not that will be the case. If they do not, I like the 49ers to win this game, and with this being the final preseason game, Gruden may not want to risk it after holding them out all summer long.
Las Vegas Raiders Next Game & Schedule
The game against the San Francisco 49ers marks their final preseason game, and after the matchup in the Bay Area, they will turn their attention to their Monday Night Football matchup against the Baltimore Ravens to kick off the regular season. The Raiders have a tough schedule to start in 2021, having to go to Pittsburgh on a short week after the Ravens game, so they will certainly be tested early.

The Raiders’ preseason contest with the 49ers on Saturday will be broadcast locally on las Vegas’s FOX 5 KVVU-TV. For those who live outside of the local TV market, the game will also be broadcast live on NFL Network as part of their triple-header lineup on Saturday.
