Las Vegas Raiders Super Bowl Odds 2022

Las Vegas Super Bowl Odds 2022

Coming off of another disappointing 8-8 season, the Raiders will look to shake things up in a crowded AFC wildcard picture. The good thing about the Raiders is that they have many of the pieces needed to make a playoff run. Their quarterback play is solid as Derek Carr has been quietly putting up very good and consistent seasons. Las Vegas also has two premier offensive weapons as TE Darren Waller and RB Josh Jacobs are some of the best players in their position groups. The defense has been the letdown for this team, especially the secondary, so if head coach Jon Gruden can find a way to fix those issues, then the Raiders can make some noise come December.

Las Vegas Raiders Odds Analysis

It’s going to be really hard to know what we are going to get out of the Raiders this year because of all of the free agency moves they made. The Raiders were everywhere in free agency this offseason as they were signing and cutting players like a madman. I don’t know how much rhyme or reason went into some of these decisions, but the product on the field for Las Vegas was not getting the job done so something needed to change. That change better be worth it because the AFC has a bunch of teams looking to get into the playoffs through the wildcard spots.

Right now, it looks like it’s going to be three playoff spots fought between the Raiders, Chargers, Dolphins, Patriots, either the Browns, Steelers, or Ravens, and either the Colts or Titans. That is a cluster of pretty solid teams and the Raiders are not one of the better teams in that grouping.

The defense has been a huge liability for Las Vegas and was the reason why they couldn’t make it into the playoffs last season. The offense was humming and kept the Raiders in games they probably shouldn’t have been. The oddsmakers have not been kind to the Raiders for this upcoming season because they are one of the better teams that can be susceptible to upsets this year.

The Raiders have this weird tendency to look great for the first 10 weeks of the season and even manage to be close in games where they are the less talented team. It’s almost like they hear the chatter about how good they are because right after those 10 weeks, they completely fall apart, let up 50 points a game, and barely miss out on the playoffs as they go 8-8 into the sunset. This year could be different since there are 17 games, so say goodbye to the days of 8-8 and say hello to the days of 8-9 or 9-8 for the Raiders. 

Reasons Why The Las Vegas Raiders Win The Super Bowl

The Raiders are quietly one of the most fun teams to watch in the NFL. They play no defense and love to throw the ball around the lot since they find themselves quickly catching up to large deficits. Their offense is the only reason that won as many games as they did because it has some serious star power on it.

Derek Carr has not been as bad as some people have said as he has put up over 4,000 yards and over 19 touchdowns every year under Jon Gruden. The mascara man will look to lead the Raiders into relevancy with the help he gets from the great playmakers beside him.

RB Josh Jacobs is a menace to society when he runs the ball as he is as physical and tough as they get. He is also able to catch passes out of the backfield, but that is not his forte.

The main receiving threat in Vegas is surprisingly not one of their wide receivers, but their tight end. Darren Waller is the man in Las Vegas and he has earned the right to call himself one of the best tight ends in football. Waller is one of the faster tight ends in football and he also adds the benefit of having great hands and route-running ability.

The Raiders love to feed these two the ball but let’s not forget about some of their other solid weapons like WR Hunter Renfrow, WR Bryan Edwards, WR Henry Ruggs, and new guy RB Kenyan Drake. The Raider’s defense flat-out stinks so the plan for them will be to outscore every other team in the league, and the crazy thing about that plan is that they might have the necessary firepower to accomplish that goal. 

Reasons Why The Las Vegas Raiders Don’t Win The Super Bowl

The Raiders have a whole host of issues that will probably keep them out of the playoffs this season. Their defense is atrocious, their coaching stinks, they got rid of their best offensive linemen in the offseason, and they play in a difficult division.

Starting off with the problems on defense, it starts with their abysmal secondary unit. The Raiders added a solid cornerback this offseason in Casey Hayward, but they have a lot more than one solid cornerback to fix their issues. Damon Arnette is not the player the Raiders hoped he would have developed into Trevon Mullen and Jonathan Abram has been known to get burned more frequently than other cornerbacks across the league. Their other defensive units aren’t much better as the Raiders have also been gashed by the run. Linebackers like Tanner Muse, Cory Littleton, and Nicholas Murrow aren’t the most talented, and defensive linemen like Yannick Ngakuoe and Max Crossby have the burden of carrying this defense since they are the star players.

Moving onto the Raiders coaching, Jon Gruden has been a huge disappointment after signing his ridiculous 10 years, $100 million dollar contract. He is 19-29 in his three years with the team and has made many brain-dead decisions. He is an energetic and personable guy, but the game might have passed him by when he went to the Monday Night Football booth.

One of the strengths of the Raiders was their run game, but that might not be the case this season as they lost C Rodney Hudson, T Trent Brown, and G Gabe Jackson in free agency. Jackson was ranked as the 14th best guard, Brown was ranked as the 2nd best right tackle, and Hudson was ranked as the #1 center according to our website. So losing all of those great players will result in a major deficit in production in the run game.

Finally is their brutal schedule where they have to play other really good teams like the Ravens, Steelers, Dolphins, Chargers, Bears, Chiefs, Browns, Colts, and Football Team. The Raiders have tough games and they are going to struggle in those games because of all of the factors above.
