The Las Vegas Raiders desperately needed a win for morale last week against the Denver Broncos, and they got it. The team cruised to a 34-24 win over the Broncos in a week that saw the team’s coach resign. You can see why not everyone was optimistic about Las Vegas heading into Week 6, but they proved their doubters wrong. The Philadelphia Eagles, on the other hand, played an admirable game against the Super Bowl Champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football, narrowly losing in an entertaining 28-22 matchup. The Eagles, now sitting at 2-4, desperately need a win to stay afloat in the extremely crowded NFC East, where the Dallas Cowboys sit at 5-1. Let’s take a look at what to expect for player props when the Eagles travel to Las Vegas to face off against the Raiders.
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Las Vegas Raiders Player Prop Search Tool
Derek Carr Under 285.5 Passing Yards
After a tumultuous (to put it lightly) week for the Las Vegas Raider, Derek Carr had a productive day against the Broncos, throwing for 341 yards and two touchdowns. However, I wouldn’t expect that again this week. The Denver defense has been underperforming for a while, but this Eagles squad is different. The Philly defense is allowing only 211.8 passing yards per game, despite facing the electric Buccaneers offense last week. While Carr should keep up his high level of play, I just don’t see him going over the total this Sunday.
Jalen Hurts Over 244.5 Passing Yards
Jalen Hurts is better than his stats the past few weeks. The QB struggled the past couple of games, not even hitting 200 yards since the start of October. However, when he gets going, opposing defenses should watch out. The QB put up 387 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs and 326 yards against the Dallas Cowboys. While the Las Vegas defense is better than either of those squads, they did just allow Teddy Bridgewater to hit 334 yards through the air.
Hunter Renfrow Under 56.5 Receiving Yards
Remember how I was so big on Hunter Renfrow the past few weeks? Well, I’m starting to expect he was more of a focus in the Jon Gruden offense. Renfrow had only 36 yards against the Broncos last Sunday, despite a seemingly unstoppable day by the Raiders offense. And, as I said, the Eagles defense is pretty stingy this season. Because of those two factors, I’m going under for Renfrow this week.
Miles Sanders Over 65.5 Rushing Yards
I really struggled on this prop, since the Eagles have seemingly made it a focus to do everything but use Sanders in the run game. The running back is only averaging 9.5 rushes per game, despite a 4.7-yard average. So why am I going over here? I expect the Eagles to finally start using the back when they realize the Raiders have trouble against the run. Las Vegas is allowing 130.7 yards on the ground per game, so I think Philly coach Nick Sirianni will come to his senses and start feeding Sanders the ball. If he doesn’t, I might just start pulling my hair out.
