Raiders vs Rams Prediction & Pick

The Raiders of the last three weeks are the team many fans have been waiting to see. Las Vegas is averaging a league-best 7.0 yards per play during that span and rank fourth in average points scored (29.7). It draws a perfect matchup to keep that success going against a disappointing LA team, too.

The Rams are allowing 25.0 points per home game on the year (T-No. 28 in NFL) and have given up 6.2 yards per play over the last three weeks (No. 28 in NFL). Without much hope of QB Matthew Stafford returning for this game, that kind of defensive effort won't allow the LA offense to keep up.

The Rams are in the midst of an ugly six-game losing streak and I don't see it ending on Thursday.

Final Score Prediction: Raiders: 27 | Rams: 17

Raiders vs Rams Betting Trends

- Las Vegas is 6-3 against the spread (ATS) in its last nine games.
- The total has hit the under in four of Las Vegas' last six games.
- The Rams are 1-4 straight up in their last five home games.
- The total has hit the under in four of the Rams' last five games against Las Vegas.

Raiders vs Rams Best Bet

There's a legitimate chance the Raiders blow out the Rams in a Week 14 primetime matchup, which is a statement not many people would've agreed with prior to Week 1. An LA offense that started out stacked with talent has been crushed by injuries and ranks 29th in scoring (16.8 points per game).

One matchup to keep an eye on is Adams going up against the Rams' secondary. The All-Pro WR put up 109 yards on 8 receptions against LA as a member of the Packers in 2021. A similar outing would help propel a Raiders team that is 6-3 against the spread (ATS) in its last nine games to a massive win.

Bet: Las Vegas Raiders -6 (-110)
