Week 7 NFL action is underway, but FanDuel Sportsbook has already released NFL odds and lines for Week 8, giving us an early preview of the upcoming slate.

Week 8 includes a matchup between the Las Vegas Raiders and New Orleans Saints.

Raiders vs Saints Odds & Lines Week 8

All NFL betting lines, odds and prop bets are from FanDuel Sportsbook.
Moneyline: LV: (+100) | NO: (-118)
Spread: LV: +1.5 (-115) | NO: -1.5 (-105)
Total: N/A — Over: (N/A) | Under: (N/A)

The Raiders go on the road as slight underdogs against the Saints in Week 8. New Orleans is an early -118 moneyline favorite and favored by 1.5 points on the spread.

Raiders vs Saints Prediction Week 8

Early NFL predictions and picks are from ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI).
Raiders: 57.3% to win
Saints: 42.2% to win

Oddsmakers are giving New Orleans a slight edge ahead of this contest. On the other hand, ESPN's FPI likes the Raiders to get a road victory. Las Vegas may be just 1-4 on the year, but this is easily the most winnable game of its schedule thus far. Both teams average 25.0 points scored per game, while the Raiders are allowing 2.6 fewer points per game.

In such an even matchup, turnovers will likely make the difference. That's an issue for New Orleans and its league-worst -10 turnover differential. Las Vegas is just -2 in that stat, and that's why I'm taking Raiders +100 on the moneyline.
