The Las Vegas Raiders are looking to make a big statement as they move from Oakland into a brand-new stadium in Nevada. The Raiders went 7-9 in 2019, but the offseason hasn't changed oddsmakers' opinions about their 2020 season potential.

With that in mind, here's a full preview of the Raiders' 2020 NFL season potential outcomes and projected achievements, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Raiders Win Total

The Raiders are currently projected to win 7.5 games this season, with -105 odds on the over and -115 on the under. In the AFC, that 7.5-win mark is tied with the Los Angeles Chargers, Denver Broncos, and Houston Texans.

Raiders Odds to Make NFL Playoffs

Las Vegas originally opened with +250 odds to make and -340 odds to miss the 2020 NFL Playoffs, however, those numbers have since improved to +240 and -310, respectively. At +240, the Raiders have the 12th-best odds to make the playoffs in the AFC and 23rd-best odds in the NFL. Those +240 and -310 odds reflect implied probability of a 29.41 percent chance to win make the postseason and a 75.61 chance to miss it in 2020.

Raiders Odds to Win AFC West

After winning Super Bowl LIV, the Kansas City Chiefs are the overwhelming favorites to win the AFC West at -800. The Raiders have the worst odds in the division at +1200, an implied probability of 7.69 percent to win the division. The Chargers are at +700 and the Broncos are at +1100.

Raiders Odds to Win AFC Championship

The Raiders are longshots to win the AFC this year at +3000 odds, ranking 12th in the conference. Those +3000 odds reflect an implied probability of a 3.23 percent chance to win the AFC Championship and advance to Super Bowl LV.

Raiders Odds to Win Super Bowl LV

Similarly, the Raiders have long odds to make the Super Bowl. The Raiders currently boast the 24th-best odds to win Super Bowl LV at +6000, sitting just ahead of the Detroit Lions (+6600) and Carolina Panthers (+7000). Those +6000 odds reflect an implied probability of just 1.64 percent chance of the Raiders winning the Super Bowl.
