Bills vs Raiders Prediction: Raiders Football Preview

The Raiders started their season going into Denver and getting the win as an underdog. Las Vegas and Denver played a close game in score and stats.

The Raiders outgained Denver by one yard, both teams had ten penalties, both teams were 5-11 on third down, and the difference was the Broncos missed an extra point in the first quarter.

Denver led 16-10 with 8:54 to go, but the Raiders, who have owned the Broncos, ended up scoring and winning.

Bills Football Preview

On the other hand, the Bills had as disappointing an opening night as you could imagine. They played against Zach Wilson for the entire night, and they were incapable of stopping him.

It did not help that Josh Allen turned the ball over four times. He threw three picks and had a fumble, and when Allen did not lead a scoring drive in overtime, the Bills hope of winning the game was over.

How does Buffalo recover? They opened as nine-point favorites, so the market and our power ratings did not lose any respect for Buffalo after that gut-wrenching loss.

Bills vs Raiders Prediction: The PICK

This also signifies that despite the Raiders’ Week One win, the market does not anticipate this team actually being able to compete with top-tier opponents – and it is not hard to see why.

Outside of Allen’s turnovers, Buffalo looked great, and nine points is a lot and may be too many to cover, but the Bills should not be on upset alert this week.
