Eagles at Raiders picks: Point spread, total, player props, trends for Week 7 matchup in Las Vegas

It’ll be the Raiders and Eagles squaring off from Las Vegas for a Week 7 showdown on Sunday. In the aftermath of Jon Gruden stepping down as head coach, the Raiders showed some serious resilience by taking down the Broncos on the road to move to 4-2 on the year. Meanwhile, Philly is coming into this game after some extended rest after playing the Buccaneers on Thursday to open Week 6, but are 2-4 on the year following that loss. 

While both of these teams have different records at this point in the season, bettors have gone down a similar road when wagering on them as they each are 3-3 ATS. It’s that gambling aspect of that matchup that we plan to dissect below as we are set to go over the spread, prop, and all the other betting angles that this game has to offer.

Line movement

Latest Odds:

Las Vegas Raiders

The early look at this line was Raiders -2.5, but bumped up to Raiders -3 last Sunday and has stood at that number throughout the week. That said, there was a point this week were you could lay the points with Las Vegas at +100 after it was largely at -110. 

The pick: Raiders -3. The Eagles offense still looks a bit disjointed for my liking as they’ve struggled to string along positive plays throughout the season, which makes me feel comfortable laying the field goal. Las Vegas’ defense seems to firing on all cylinders after a Week 6 performance where they totaled five sacks, 17 quarterback hits and forced four turnovers.  

Key trend: Eagles are 2-7 ATS in their last nine road games.

Over/Under total

The totaled has moved around quite a bit throughout the week. After opening at 48, it jumped to 49 by Wednesday before taking a quick trip back down to 48.5 to begin the day Thursday. From there, it has largely stood at 49, albeit with a brief stint at 49.5. 

The pick: Under 49. These teams are tied for second in the NFL in fewest yards per play allowed coming into Week 7. Their offenses are also each turning in 5.3 yards per play over the last three weeks, which ranks in the bottom third in the league over that stretch. If those trends continue, we could be looking at a low-scoring game here. 

Key trend: Under is 5-2 in the Eagles last seven games. 

Player props to consider

Josh Jacobs total rushing yards: Over 58.5 (-115). Jacobs has yet to go over this number this season, but Philadelphia is allowing 135.3 yards on the ground this season, which ranks 28th in the NFL. The Raiders back has also seen double-digit carries in every game he’s played this season and has logged at least 63% of the offensive snaps over the last three weeks, giving him a good opportunity for a strong day on the ground. 

Darren Waller total receptions: Over 5.5 (-105). The Eagles are giving up over six catches per game to opposing tight ends this season, including last week when Buccaneers tight ends hauled in nine of their 11 targets. Waller has largely been quiet throughout the early portions of the season, but this is a good bounce-back spot for the ultra-talented tight end.   

Jalen Hurts total passing yards: Under 248.5 (-115). The Raiders are allowing just 210 passing yards per game over the last three weeks and Hurts has failed to go over this number in two straight games.
