The Las Vegas Raiders will battle it out against the Houston Texans at home in Week 7, and here are the best bets for this crucial AFC matchup.
Week 7 of the 2022 NFL slate will bring a matchup between two one-win AFC teams in the Las Vegas Raiders and Houston Texans. Both teams come into this game fresh off their bye weeks, and while they had the week off, the Silver and Black are coming into the matchup a bit banged up.
While Hunter Renfrow returned to practice this week, Darren Waller is injured and has been ruled out of this game according to the latest injury report. This is a game the Silver and Black should certainly win, as they have more talent than the Texans, but as we have seen with this team all season long, they sometimes play down to their competition.
Here, we look at some best bets for the Silver and Black in this matchup.
Best Las Vegas Raiders Bets Week 7
According to Iain MacMillan over at BetSided.com, the record is not who the Raiders are, and we could not agree more. Although they have won only one game, they have lost their four other contests by a total of 14 points, so this is a team that just needs to find out how to win the close ones.
With the spread at seven points, MacMilllan feels you should give the points to Houston and roll with the Silver and Black in this one. You can pretty much double your money over at FanDuel Sportsbook, and we agree that this is a small line considering how good the Raiders are in terms of talent.
The Las Vegas Raiders come off their bye week and welcome the Houston Texans in Week 7. Here are the x-factors heading into Sunday's matchup.
One other bet you should keep your eye on is Josh Jacobs as an anytime scorer and Raiders moneyline, which comes in at +115. If you fancy the passing touchdowns, Davante Adams and the Raiders moneyline is a +105 bet, so either way, you are doubling your money.
