The picks haven’t been greatÂ latelyÂ I’ll admit, but this should be a bounce-back game for both the betting record and the Las Vegas Raiders themselves. Odds are as of Friday afternoon via DraftKings.
Smartest Bet: Bryan Edwards to Score (+260)
Bryan Edwards has looked good this year. Despite that, he has yet to find theÂ endzone. That is because a big-bodied receiver like Edwards should be a major threat around the goal line. Also, he has been a key target in big situations this year. Simply put, he’s due.
Safest Bet: Hunter Renfrow OVER 4.5 Receptions (-110)
I don’t understand why this line is at 4.5 and not 5.5. TheÂ numbersÂ speak for themselves. He hasn’t dipped below five catches yet, and he’s had at least six targets each week. Plus, he just seems to look a little better each week. Until this line moves above five catches, I’d hammer it every week.

Best Risky Bet: Edwards to Score First (+1500)
If you’re all-in on Edwards, this is theÂ betÂ for you. At these odds, you almost might as well go with this line just on the potential return. With that said, there is a tangible case for this bet. You have to think that the Raiders will make it a point of emphasis to start strong on offense. The Raiders have made a habit of waiting until the second half to get going. That is also the point in which we’ve seen a lot more out ofÂ Edwards. A fast start could involve a higher dose of the South Carolina product.
