Las Vegas at Baltimore

1.5 units on Las Vegas +10.5 (-105) (risk 1.5 to return 2.93) RESULT: LOSS
Oakland hasn't packed it in for first-year coach Jon Gruden, coming off a 23-21 win at Arizona. The Raiders are on an 8-3 ATS run in games played on field-turf. They are a double-digit dog to a Baltimore team with plenty of problems, on a 2-4 SU/1-5 ATS skid. The last four games the Baltimore defense has allowed 24, 36, 23 and 21 points. And the offense is averaging 19 points per game over the last six contests, yet they are big chalk this week. Baltimore is going with 21-year-old QB Lamar Jackson, who didn't throw a TD pass last week with one pick. His QB rating this season is 40.4. The Ravens have failed to cover five in a row at home against teams with losing road records, as well as a 2-5 ATS run against losing teams. Baltimore's issues defending tight ends has been an ongoing problem and TE Jared Cook is the Raiders top playmaker with 65 targets and four touchdowns to lead the team. And his 12.8-yards per reception is one of the best marks at the position across the league. All of which makes this a great matchup for the big dog. Take the points and play Oakland.
