Arizona Cardinals vs. Las Vegas Raiders Player Prop Picks

The Cardinals and Raiders both started their seasons with a loss in Week 1, and they will be hoping for better performances in Week 2. Arizona and Las Vegas have dynamic offenses with high-profile playmakers, which provides plenty of opportunities for exciting player prop value. You can utilize the player prop search tool below to find the best values for the Cardinals vs Raiders game in your market.

Davante Adams Over 7.5 Receptions

I played Davante Adams over 6.5 receptions last week, and while we aren’t getting that great number anymore, there’s still value at 7.5. Adams had an absurd 17 targets in Week 1, the most in the NFL and a 46% share. On 44 Derek Carr dropbacks, Adams ran 44 routes, and he finished with ten catches for 141 yards and a score.

Adams should keep rolling in Week 2 as he continues to build on his pre-existing collegiate chemistry with Derek Carr, and the duo get an even better matchup to exploit. The Cardinals ranked last in the league in defensive DVOA in Week 1 as they allowed Patrick Mahomes to throw for 360 yards and five touchdowns.

Whether it’s Byron Murphy Jr. or Marco Wilson on the perimeter, the Cardinals will have a difficult time containing Adams. That’s especially true with a pass rush that won’t be able to pressure Carr nearly as much as he was last week. Let’s not overthink this one – Adams should have another big game.

Marquise Brown Over 5.5 Receptions

Speaking of pre-existing collegiate chemistry, I’m expecting the duo of Kyler Murray and Marquise Brown to get going more in Week 2. The Chiefs did well to limit Brown to four catches for 43 yards in Week 1, and Kyler Murray spoke after the game about how he wanted to get Brown the type of workload that elite receivers earn in the NFL.

The Raiders’ secondary isn’t as good as it looked at times in Week 1, and I’d expect Murray to have a much better game this week. Trevon Moehrig allowed two catches for 44 yards in 16 coverage snaps at free safety, and if he doesn’t play better, I expect Hollywood to be on the receiving end of a couple of big plays this week.

If you want to target Brown’s yardage prop at 61.5, that’s fine too, but I prefer the value on his receptions. FanDuel is still offering plus money on the over 5.5 at the time I’m writing this, and it shouldn’t be too difficult for Brown to get two more catches than he had last week given the expected game script against a much weaker secondary.

A.J. Green Under 3.5 Receptions

It was the perfect situation for A.J. Green. The Cardinals were without DeAndre Hopkins and Rondale Moore after losing Christian Kirk in the offseason – they had four healthy wide receivers. The game script demanded a pass-heavy offense as Arizona trailed by 30 entering the fourth quarter. And yet, Green finished with four targets and two receptions.

It’s evident at this point that Green is past the point of being a productive NFL player, and it’s hard to blame him as he will turn 35 years old this season. Even Greg Dortch had more snaps and targets. Rondale Moore is out again this week, but if Green couldn’t produce given the situation last week, it’s tough to imagine that changing drastically.

You’re going to have to be willing to drink some juice to make this play, but FanDuel and PointsBet are still offering -150 odds on the under at the time I’m writing this. I hate that type of value on a player prop, but with my confidence level in this play, I don’t mind it in this situation.
