Money Line: -140.00 Las Vegas (Away)
The Raiders went 4-12 in Jon Gruden's first season and they were 7-9 last year. Now Las Vegas is once again expected to take another small step this season. Derek Carr and Josh Jacobs return to the Raidres and they added a big addition in Henry Ruggs III. The Raiders made big strides defensively near the end of last year as well, allowing just 17.6 PPG over its final three contests. Teddy Bridgewater gets the call in Carolina this season after it parted ways with Cam Newton. Bridgewater has only started six games since 2015. The Panthers were last in the NFL on the defensive side of the ball and the unit is once again a big question mark this season. Also note that the Panthers are 0-3-1 ATS in their last four home games. I'm banking on the more organized Raiders pulling away for a SU victory!
T.M. Prediction: 24-13 Raiders
