The Buffalo Bills host the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday, with the two teams having different success in the opening round. While the Raiders won, the Bills lost and now seek redemption.
Before Betting on Raiders vs. Bills
A big hit for the Raiders will be Jakobi Mayers’ absence, with the WR missing the contest due to a concussion picked up against the Broncos. Mayers was fantastic with nine receptions on ten targets, for 81 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
Jimmy Garoppolo will have to utilize Davante Adams and Josh Jacobs more than usual, but that won’t be a problem for the former Niners’ QB. Jimmy G had 200 passing yards, two TDs, and one pick. Jacobs was a bit pale, with only 48 yards on 19 carries, and the Raiders had 71 yards on the ground in total.
The Bills suffered a hard loss to the Jets in New York, going through overtime and missing a few solid chances to seal the win. One of the NFL’s top gunslingers, Josh Allen, threw for 236 yards, having one touchdown and three picks. When looking at the whole situation, the bottom line is that Allen presented the biggest problem for his team.
Stefon Diggs had 102 receiving yards and one TD catch, presenting a constant threat to the Jets’ defense. Though, he was alone, without a partner who would be able to beat the rival’s D.

The Bills rarely lose at home, especially in the situations when they need to bounce back following a previous loss. Jimmy G and the Raiders are a solid bunch, but overall, we don’t believe they have the offensive power to compete with the Bills. Allen should rebound after a sluggish performance at MetLife Stadium, meaning that the Bills’ offense should be at least 30% better.
