Las Vegas Raiders Odds, Bet Types, and Team History
The Las Vegas Raiders posted a .500 season in the desert debut, though 2020 will be remembered more for what could’ve been. The Raiders started 6-3 and appeared on track for a return to the NFL playoffs before dropping five of their final seven games, including three losses by a combined eight points. Instead of a memorable debut, Las Vegas was left out of the postseason picture for the 17th time in the past 18 years.
It’s now Year 4 of the Jon Gruden era and the pressure is on to deliver a playoff appearance. While a bottom-three scoring defense is the most glaring area of improvement, a more consistent Derek Carr would help too. Carr’s final statline of 4,103 passing yards, 27 touchdowns and nine interceptions looks good, but his splits align with the Raiders’ highs and lows of last season. During the 6-3 start, Carr posted 16 touchdowns against two picks and completed over 69 percent of his passes. That line dropped to 65 percent completion with 11 scores and seven interceptions in the final seven weeks. His eight fumbles lost were also a career-worst.
Despite the late-season collapse, the Raiders did still have one of the top 10 scoring offenses in football last year and might be even better in 2021. Josh Jacobs is looking to begin his career with a third-straight 1,000-yard season. He rushed for 1,065 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2020 and will be joined in the backfield by offseason acquisition Kenyan Drake , who had a career-high 955 yards and 10 touchdowns with Arizona last year.
Tight end Darren Waller headlines the receiving corps after going for 107 catches, 1,196 yards and nine touchdowns in 2020. Nelson Agholor’s departure leaves Las Vegas without its top vertical threat. Second-year pro Henry Ruggs averaged 17.4 yards per catch as a rookie and could step into this role. New acquisition John Brown was limited by injuries in Buffalo, but also figures to start after topping 1,000 yards in 2019.
It’s the Raiders defense that needs to take a step forward in 2021. Defensive end Maxx Crosby led the team in sacks with 7.5 last season. General manager Mike Mayock went out and acquired polished veterans along the line and secondary with Yannick Ngakoue and Casey Hayward to improve this unit. Ngakoue hasn’t had fewer than eight sacks in any of his first five seasons while Hayward recorded 14 interceptions over the past five seasons.
The Raiders open the 2021 NFL season at home against the Baltimore Ravens. You can view the Action Network’s top odds for the game below in addition to an odds comparison for every Week 1 game right here.

Raiders Team Rivals
The Raiders finished second in the AFC West in 2020. They went 4-2 against the division with its two losses by a combined seven points. Performing well against divisional opponents is a positive sign for the Raiders, who looked like a playoff team for half of last year. The Raiders last won the division in 2002.
The Kansas City Chiefs won the AFC West and are the reigning two-time AFC champions, going 14-2 in the 2020 regular season after winning Super Bowl LIV the year prior. The Los Angeles Chargers placed third at 7-9 after four straight games to close the season while the Denver Broncos finished fourth at 5-11. Denver won Super Bowl 50 at the end of the 2015 season, but hasn’t been back to the postseason since.

Betting on the Las Vegas Raiders
Las Vegas Raiders Point Spreads
Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Raiders were 8-8 against the spread in 2020. Las Vegas’ eight wins were by an average margin of 8.3 points while its eight losses came at an average of 13.8 points.
Here’s an example:
- Chargers +2.5 (+110)
- Raiders -2.5 (-110)
In this situation, the Chargers are 2.5 point underdogs against the Raiders. If Las Vegas wins the game by three or more points, a $100 wager on the Raiders would come with a payout of $90.91. If Los Angeles won the game outright or lost by two points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.
Raiders Over/Unders aka Raiders Totals
Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:
Let's say the Chiefs play the Raiders and the over/under is set at 55 points. A wager on the over would require Kansas City and Los Angeles to score 56 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 54 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 55 points scored.
In 2020, Las Vegas averaged 27.1 points per game and allowed 29.9 points, a top-10 offense and a bottom-three defense. The Raiders were tied for the NFL’s best record (12-3-1) against the over, which they hit in 80 percent of their games last year.
Las Vegas Raiders Moneylines
The moneyline is as straightforward as it gets when it comes to betting. The only thing to do here is pick the winner. Check out this example:
- Raiders -110
- Broncos +230
The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Las Vegas the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Raiders odds would mean every $11 bet nets $10. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Broncos moneyline was set at +230, meaning a $10 wager would profit $23.
Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Raiders moneyline and -2.5 point spread, Las Vegas would need to win by three points or more for that bet to be successful. The risk is greater, but so is the reward with increased odds. Use our Odds Calculator to calculate any bet amount or conversion.

Las Vegas Raiders Props
Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:
- Darren Waller 2021 receiving yards: 1,225.5
Let’s break it down a bit. Waller averaged 74.8 receiving yards per game in 2020, the best mark of his career. We’ll assume he continues to be the Raiders top option and the number goes up to 77.5. If Waller sustained that pace over 16 games, he’d be up to 1,240 yards and be over his projected mark. Remember, the NFL added an extra regular season game in 2021. Waller hasn’t missed a game in two years and now he’s got an extra chance to insure this prop bet. If he played all 17 games, Waller would finish with 1,317 yards.
Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end-of-season success. Examples of futures are:
- Las Vegas Raiders odds to win the AFC West
- Las Vegas Raiders odds to win the AFC
- Las Vegas Raiders odds to win the Super Bowl
- Derek Carr’s odds to win Offensive Player of the Year
If you’re confident that the Raiders will return to the playoffs or that Carr can thrive for a full season, this is the place to be. For a full list of NFL futures, click or tap here.
