New England +2 over Las Vegas
8:15 PM EST. The Raiders will be resting their starters, after going 3-0 in their previous preseason games this summer. With one extra game on the schedule thanks to the Hall of Fame game, one can’t blame Josh McDaniels for keeping it close to the vest here. It might not be a coincidence that his mentor Bill Belichick and the Patriots are in town either, as McDaniels is still trying to find success on his own. We doubt he’ll want to give Belichick anything that could hurt his Raiders down the road.
With a limited player pool and a limited playbook on the Vegas side, there is a great chance that Belichick will be able to scheme and take advantage, as he’s taught his understudy everything McDaniels knows, but not everything B.B. knows. We don’t think that Belichick will give anything good, but we know he likes to win, especially against anyone that falls off his coaching tree and tries to grow on their own. The Patriots don’t need to play their starters tonight, but they are going to. Why? So Mac Jones and Hunter Henry get a few more reps in? Please, B.B. is coming to Vegas to win and win big.
New England +2 -110 (Risking 2.20 units - To Win: 2.00)
