Raiders vs. Lions

Jared Goff

Under 267.5 Passing Yards

Last week’s Lions vs. Ravens matchup was supposed to be a measuring stick game that would inherently create some type of narrative surrounding the result of a battle between a pair of fringe contenders from opposing conferences in mid-season form.

Well, forget the measuring stick. The Lions had to break out the 100-foot tape measure in order to calculate how far away they stood from Baltimore in a 32-point blowout loss.

Even after last week’s loss, though, the Lions still stand head and shoulders above teams like Las Vegas. Detroit ranked fifth in points scored and 28th in points allowed last season. So, all the football nerds got super excited when the Lions held Kansas City to 20 points in beating them in the season opener and then proceeded to hold their opponent to 20 points or less in two of the next three matchups. But it turns out the Lions defense might’ve been a little bit overrated, and when push comes to shove, they can only go as far as their offense carries them.

The Lions have had some trouble moving the ball against tough defenses the last few weeks, as they scored just 20 points against Tampa Bay and then six points against Baltimore. However, prior to Week 6, the Lions were moving the ball up and down the field with little resistance, as they averaged 29.6 points per game in their first five contests.

The kicker: Jared Goff fell short of 260 passing yards in four of those five games, while contrarily, he went over 280 yards against Tampa and Baltimore.

Since the Raiders currently own a modest record of 3-4, the vast majority of analysts tend to watch their step when criticizing this Vegas team. But make no mistake about it, the Raiders are one of the worst teams in football. This week, they draw a primetime matchup against the Lions, who are hot and bothered coming off a brutal let-down loss, likely seeking a statement win at home under the bright lights.

Even if Detroit dominates this game in every facet, I still like the chances of Goff staying under his passing yards number in this spot.

Pick: Jared Goff Under 267.5 Passing Yards (-114)

Jimmy Garoppolo

Over 0.5 Interceptions (-175)

After throwing just 42 interceptions on 1,632 pass attempts for the 49ers over the last six years (55 starts), Jimmy Garoppolo has thrown an interception in five straight starts to begin his tenure with the Raiders, while getting picked off multiple times in two of those affairs to accumulate a total of 8 INTs already.

Detroit’s defense has fallen off a little bit the last few weeks. The Lions enter Week 8 ranked 19th in scoring at 21.6 points allowed per game. However, they continue to press the issue and take away possessions from their opponents, highlighted by Detroit’s defense forcing a turnover in five straight games while collecting multiple takeaways in two of those contests.

Through just five starts with the Raiders, Garoppolo is only five interceptions away from matching his career-high INT total of 13, and he was already averaging 0.76 interceptions per start prior to his departure from San Francisco. This is a case of Garoppolo desperately needing the guidance of Kyle Shanahan or Bill Belichick in his corner, and I highly doubt Josh McDaniels will be able to fix him. I’m backing Jimmy G to throw his ninth interception of the season in this contest.

Pick: Jimmy Garoppolo Over 0.5 Interceptions (-175)

Josh Jacobs

Under 62.5 Rushing Yards

So far this season, the Raiders offense has been pretty bad regardless of their QB situation or strength of the opposing defense. Garoppolo has started five games, in which the Raiders have averaged 16.6 PPG while maxing out at 21 points, and they scored 18 or less in four of those contests.

The Jimmy G tax has been particularly expensive for reigning NFL rushing champ Josh Jacobs. Last year, Jacobs rushed for 97.2 yards per game on 4.9 yards per attempt en route to carving out the best campaign of his career.

However, those numbers have fallen off a cliff this season. Jacobs enters Week 8 averaging just 49.6 rushing yards per game on 2.9 yards per attempt while falling short of the 65-yard mark in five of seven contests thus far.

Monday night’s matchup has the makings of another long night for the Raiders. There’s a good chance that we’ll see the Lions barrel out of the gates to a hot start after getting stomped in embarrassing fashion by Baltimore last week, and if they do, the game script could also drift away from Jacobs early in the evening. I’m fading Jacobs in the rushing department on Monday night.

Pick: Josh Jacobs Under 62.5 Rushing Yards (-114)
