The Las Vegas Raiders take on the Chicago Bears today, and here is everything you need in terms of injuries, spread, and more.
The Las Vegas Raiders will play host to the Chicago Bears in a Week 5 matchup that is loaded with storylines. One of the greatest players in recent team history was Khalil Mack, and after being traded away before the 2018 NFL season, he is playing in front of a packed Raider Nation crowd for the first time.
Mack and the Bears have played his former franchise before, a battle in London that the Silver and Black won, but this is different, as Allegiant Stadium will be packed with fans, and some should be sporting their No. 52 jerseys.
For Las Vegas, this game will be about more than just Mack, as they are looking to bounce back from a tough loss against Los Angeles on Monday night. They must prepare for a tough defense, and a rookie quarterback on a short week, making this one an interesting one in the desert.
Raiders Injury Report vs Chicago Week 5
This is a Las Vegas team that has been ravaged by the injury bug this season, and the team put three players on injured reserve already this week. Cornerbacks Damon Arnette and Trayvon Mullen Jr. are both headed to IR, as is tight end, Derek Carrier, limiting the depth the team has at both position groups.
Las Vegas is getting running back Jalen Richard back off of injured reserve, and that should bring a boost to the running back room. The Silver and Black have struggled to get it going on the ground this season, and Richard is someone who can help this team in the run, passing, and return game.
For the Bears, Akeem Hicks is out, as is star running back David Montgomery, two big losses on each side of the ball. Mack, while hurting, will play.
Raiders vs Chicago Odds, Spread, Over/Under & Betting Pick Week 5
WynnBET’s Week 5 NFL odds have the Raiders as big favorites in this one, as they are giving the Bears 5.5 points. The over/under is set for 45 points, and that seems about right, as I like this game to be 24-21 in favor of the Raiders. This is a Raiders team that has more talent than Chicago, and the pass rush should get to Justin Fields early and often.
In the end, the rookie quarterback is going to make one too many mistakes, and the Allegiant Stadium home crowd should be rocking, making for a tough environment for the first-year signal-caller.
