N.Y. GIANTS +3 +100 over Las Vegas

1:00 PM EST. The 5-2 Raiders leave their Week 8 bye with a 2-1 road record and a full game lead over the Chargers for the AFC West. The 2-6 Giants just lost a close match to the Chiefs in Kansas City on Monday night, so it is a shorter week to prepare for this one. The Giants couldn't beat a Chiefs' team that is wildly underperforming, and they figure to struggle to keep up with a Raiders franchise taht is trending the right way. At least that's market sentiment.

Henry Ruggs was arrested on charges of DUI resulting in death from a car accident in Las Vegas at 4 AM on Tuesday morning. The tragedy will have ripple effects but the market does not think that at all. They may be right, after all, what is their not to like about the Raiders this week?

Aside from playing on a short week, New York will play a Raiders’ squad that was idle last week. The Raiders are 2-0 post Jon Gruden. They have a league-low five turnovers, having not fumbled all season. Derek Carr is playing the best ball of his career. The Raiders are averaging 33.5 points in their past two games while their defense is surrendering 23.7 points a game, down from the 29.9 it yielded last season. The Raiders have 18 sacks. They had only 21 all of last season and the list goes on and on for reasons to get behind the Raiders here.

It’s impossible to put this football game into any sort of appropriate context after Ruggs figured it was a good idea to drive 156 MPH while being drunk, but those spouting that this will be some rallying cry for Las Vegas also need to give their heads a shake. This is not winning one for the Gipper or Brett Favre playing the game of his life after the passing of “Big Irv. ”This is the sharp dose of reality—a nightmare. And the Raiders are living it. You cannot take the human element out of anything and we’re going to trust that the oddsmakers were correct when they hung such and appealing price to get behind the Raiders. We’re going to trust that there’s a somber mood around the club and that a football game against a weak squad after their “friend” murdered a human being is not going to bring out the Raiders “A” game.
