The Las Vegas Raiders come out of their bye week and head east, taking on the New York Giants inside MetLife Stadium on Sunday.
The Las Vegas Raiders will get back to business on Sunday, as they travel to New Jersey to take on the New York Giants inside MetLife Stadium. The Week 9 matchup is the Raiders’ first of the second half of their season, as they got out to a 5-2 start before a well-timed bye week.
Going east has really never been their thing, as they have struggled in that regard in recent years, including almost losing to a terrible New York Jets team last season. The Giants are once again in the middle of a tough season and are extremely banged up, so this should be a game the Raiders win.
After the trip east, the schedule gets a lot tougher, as they play Kansas City, Cincinnati, and Dallas, so this is certainly a must-win game. Derek Carr is playing on another level right now, and against this Giants defense, he should have more than a few opportunities to let it fly.
Raiders vs New York Giants Odds Week 9
The Week 9 betting odds on WynnBET have the Raiders as a three-point favorite on the road, which seems to be a bit low for a 5-2 team that is coming out of the bye week. The Giants have proven time and time again that they are a rebuilding team, and if the Raiders want to be legitimate contenders, these are the games you go on the road and dominate.
Betting Las Vegas on the Moneyline has several -155, while the over/under in this game is set at 47.5 in the early going.
Raiders vs New York Giants Prediction Week 9
The Raiders are one of the best teams in the AFC and have been through a ton already this season on and off the field. The Giants are just not in their class right now, but this could be a bit of a trap game, especially with some heavy-hitters on the horizon.
In the end, I believe that the Raiders will be up for this game, as they are a different team this season, and are playing their best football since Rich Bisaccia took over as interim head coach. They go into New York and dominate the Giants, winning by ten-plus points, 31-17.
