Vikings vs Raiders Odds: 

Expert Picks and Predictions for the Minnesota Vikings vs Las Vegas Raiders 2022 NFL Preseason Week 1 game. This matchup is set to kickoff on Sunday August 14, 2022 at 4:25 PM ET at the Allegiant Stadium in Vegas.

The latest NFL odds have the Raiders as -4 point favorite against the spread and -210 on the moneyline. The over/under is currently sitting at 36 total points.

Minnesota Vikings Betting Preview: 

It’s now time to enter into the new era of the Minnesota Vikings with their Head Coach Kevin O’Connell making his debut. Unfortunately he was a little distracted this week dealing with the news surrounding Quarterback Kirk Cousins and the health protocols on why you won’t see him on the field in this matchup.

Without Cousins getting the start, you see backup quarterback Sean Mannion and Kellen Mond taking the majority of the snaps. Both are them are fighting to win the second spot behind Cousins, so it’s going to be very interesting to see how this competition plays out this preseason.

In the last draft, the Vikings ended up using their first six selections on improving their defense, including their first-round pick, Georgia Bulldog stud, Lewis Cine. This will be a great first test for him and the additional defensive pieces since they’ll get to go up against this Raiders offense that can easily put up points on the board.

The Vikings are 1-4 straight up in their last 5 games played in August and the total has gone under in 4 of Minnesota’s last 6 games when playing on the road against Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Raiders Betting Preview: 

The Las Vegas Raiders are coming off that 27-11 Hall of Fame Game win last week against the Jacksonville Jaguars. In that game, Quarterbacks Jarrett Stidham, Nick Mullens, and Chase Garber combined for a pass completion rate of 62.5% and 203 total yards.

Starting running back Josh Jacobs ended up playing last week and getting 5 carries for 20 total rushing yards. If you’re backing Raiders to win this game and taking the points, then you’ll definitely want him to get even more action tonight.

Las Vegas is 8-2 straight up in their last 10 games played in August and 7-3 straight up in their last 10 games when playing as the favorite.

NFL Picks and Predictions: 

For this Vikings vs Raiders Sunday Preseason Football Game, I’m rolling with the Raiders Team Total to go over the 20 points and laying the -115 price.
