The NFL is giving us an inter-conference tilt in Week 12 on Sunday, November 27, and here you can read the best Raiders vs. Seahawks betting pick and odds.
Las Vegas is looking to record the second win in a row for the first time this season when they travel to Seattle to face the Seahawks at Lumen Field. The Seahawks are -3.5 favorites on BookMaker Sportsbook, while the total is set at 47.5 points. These inter-conference rivals will meet for the first time since 2018.
Raiders swept the series against the Broncos
The Las Vegas Raiders (3-7-0, 4-6-0 ATS) recorded just three wins this year, but two of those came against the divisional foes Denver Broncos. After beating them at home early in the season, the Raiders edged the Broncos 22-16 in overtime in Denver. They were close to suffering the fourth consecutive defeat as Denver had a 3-point lead with under two minutes to go, but Derek Carr and co. acted quickly to tie the game and then scored a game-winning touchdown in the opening drive of OT.
Derek Carr completed 23 of 37 passes for 307 yards and two touchdowns. Both of those TD passes went to Davante Adams, who led all the receivers with 141 yards on seven catches. Josh Jacobs had another 100-yard rushing display as he finished with 109 on 24 carries. On defense, Maxx Crosby was credited with two of the team’s three sacks, while Andrew Billings led the Raiders with seven tackles.
TE Darren Waller (hamstring), LB Micah Kiser (leg), and WR Hunter Renfrow (oblique) are out indefinitely. T Kolton Miller (shoulder) is questionable to face Seattle on Sunday.
Seahawks suffered the first loss in five games
The Seattle Seahawks (6-4-0, 6-4-0 ATS) were on an excellent run of four victories, but they couldn’t make it five straight as they fell short of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 21-16 at Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany. Seattle deserved to lose this game after being inferior in total yards (283-419), first downs (19-26), and possession (23:05-36:55). Seattle trailed 21-3 in the fourth quarter, and even though they scored a pair of touchdowns in the space of just four and a half minutes, it wasn’t enough to avoid a loss.
Geno Smith completed 23 of 33 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns. Seattle’s run offense didn’t work as Tampa Bay completely neutralized Kenneth Walker III, who had 17 yards on ten carries. Tyler Lockett and Marquise Goodwin scored receiving touchdowns, while DK Metcalf led the team with 71 yards on six receptions. Defensively, Jordyn Brooks was a monster with a game-high 16 tackles.
RB Rashaad Penny (fibula) is out for the season. WR D’Wayne Eskridge was forced from the last contest with a hand issue, and it has yet to be established if he will line up Sunday versus the Raiders.
- 2-5 ATS in the last seven road games
- 1-5 ATS in the last six games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game
- 4-1 ATS in the last five games overall
- 4-1 ATS in the last five games following an ATS loss
- 5-1 ATS in the last six games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game
Las Vegas Raiders vs. Seattle Seahawks Pick
The Raiders have been one of the biggest disappointments this season, while the Seahawks are one of the most pleasant surprises. Seattle is coming off a bye week that certainly came at the right time for them to rest and rally the forces. The Seahawks have the 5th best offense in the NFL that is averaging 25.7 points per game, while Las Vegas’ defense is not even in the top 20, so I am backing the hosts to outscore the Raiders on Sunday. I am backing the Seahawks to respond with their run offense, while Geno Smith should exploit Las Vegas’ weak secondary that is allowing 247.6 yards to the opposing receivers.
Pick: Take the Seahawks at -3.5 (-110)
I am going with a high-scoring affair here for one major reason – both teams have weak defenses. I mentioned the Raiders’ defense that is allowing 24.2 ppg, while the Seahawks are pretty much the same with 24.1 ppg allowed to the rivals. Seattle has the 5th worst run defense in the league that is surrendering 140.9 yards per contest, so Josh Jacobs could have another big game here. Over is 5-2 in the Seahawks’ last seven games following an ATS loss, while Over is 7-3 in Seattle’s previous ten vs. a team with a losing record.
Pick: Go Over 45.5 points (-133)
