The Las Vegas Raiders were sitting pretty in Week 2 with a 20-0 halftime lead over the Arizona Cardinals. That was when a complete collapse happened. Arizona tied the game up with a 2-point conversion at the end of regulation and won the game in overtime thanks to a crazy Raiders fumble.

Even after blowing a 16-point fourth quarter lead, Las Vegas got a stop on defense to begin overtime and were on the cusp of field goal range before committing the costly turnover. The collapse sent the Raiders to a 0-2 record in 2022 and caused their Super Bowl 57 odds to tank on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Raiders Super Bowl Odds

Entering Week 2, the Raiders had odds set at +4400 to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in February. Those odds now sit at +6000, which checks in below a whopping 20 other NFL teams. The rest of the AFC West has better odds to win it all, as do the winless Cincinnati Bengals and Tennessee Titans.

It's interesting to note that wide receiver Davante Adams was held without a single catch in the second half against the Cardinals. That is obviously not the recipe for offensive success for Las Vegas. Look for quarterback Derek Carr to feed his favorite target the ball more often moving forward.

Raiders vs Titans Week 3 Odds

The Raiders are entering do-or-die territory now, as an 0-3 record would diminish their playoff chances considerably. Week 3 brings a road test with the Titans, who are currently 1-point home underdogs at home on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
