Packers vs. Raiders odds, line, spread: Monday Night Football picks, predictions from NFL model on 168-118 run

Teams looking to recover from losses will meet when the Green Bay Packers visit the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football in NFL Week 5. The Packers (2-2) played at home in primetime last week, losing a key NFC North battle to the Detroit Lions, 34-20. Las Vegas (1-3) lost its third straight game last Sunday, falling 24-17 in Los Angeles to the AFC West-rival Chargers. Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garropolo cleared the league’s concussion protocol and will likely return. Green Bay hasn’t lost to the Raiders since 1987, a run of eight straight victories. The most recent matchup was in 2019, a 42-20 Packers victory at Lambeau Field.

Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. ET in Las Vegas. Las Vegas is a two-point favorite and the over/under for total points scored is 45.5 in the latest Packers vs. Raiders odds.

Why the Packers can cover

Green Bay is 7-2 against the spread over its past nine games, going 3-1 this season as an underdog in all four games. The Packers have won six straight Monday Night Football games and have dominated the Raiders. Running back Aaron Jones had just five carries last week, but should get plenty of work against a Las Vegas defense that ranks 26th in allowing 134 rushing yards per game.

The Raiders allow 25.3 points per contest (24th) and score 15.5 (25th). The Packers are 10th in the league in points scored (25 per game) and 20th in scoring defense (24). Packers quarterback Jordan Love (901 yards, eight TDs) has thrown three interceptions in the past two games, but the Raiders have only one takeaway. They own an NFL-worst minus-nine in turnover margin. Las Vegas has allowed 11 sacks in their past two games, so Rashan Gary (3.5 sacks) and Devonte Wyatt (2.5) could have big nights. See who to back at SportsLine.

Why the Raiders can cover

The Packers yield 155 yards per game on the ground, third-most in the NFL, so Josh Jacobs could have a big night. The workhorse running back has 339 total yards, but is averaging just 2.7 per carry. Green Bay is yielding 4.5 per rushing attempt (25th).

Davante Adams will try to have a big game against the team he spent eight seasons with. The wideout is second in Packers history in receptions and receiving yards, but the relationship ended acrimoniously. He is eighth in the NFL with 397 yards and has scored three times. Defensive end Maxx Crosby (four sacks) makes life rough for opposing quarterbacks and could force Love into mistakes. See who to back at SportsLine.
