Raiders At Saints Odds: Spread, Moneyline, Over/Under
When using the odds table, click the dropdown menu and select the type of bet you wish to make.
Betting the point spread is when you wager on how many points a team will win or lose by. A plus sign in front of the spread denotes the underdog, and a minus sign denotes the favorite.
In this case, the Raiders would have to win by at least three points if you bet them to cover the point spread (-2) — a two-point win would return your money. A spread bet on the Saints would win if they win the game or lose by one — again, a two-point loss returns your money.
Betting the moneyline is simply betting on which particular team will win a game.
The betting total is the number of combined points the two teams will score. Bettors can choose to bet the over or under on how many total points will be scored in the game.

Raiders At Saints Betting Insights
Why The Raiders Can Cover The Spread
The Saints have been both bad and injured so far this season. While Andy Dalton has moved the ball plenty since taking over at QB from Jameis Winston, he showed his limitations with a couple of ugly INTs last week. Meanwhile, the Saints defense has been surprisingly awful so far. Matched up against a Raiders offense hitting its stride, that means Dalton has little to no margin for error in this spot.
Why The Saints Can Cover The Spread
This could be the week they get some of their players back. And mind you, the Saints are performing just fine even with Chris Olave banged up, Marshon Lattimore hurt, Michael Thomas missing multiple games, etc. The three losses with Dalton could all have realistically been wins. The Raiders are vulnerable to opposing passing games and the pass rush hasn’t been as effective as hoped. If the Saints can slow the red-hot Josh Jacobs, they’ll be right in this.
Reasons To Bet The Over
The Saints can’t stop a nosebleed this season but the offense has been surprisingly solid. The Raiders have a balanced and efficient offense. But opposing passing games have shredded them, and it took until the fourth quarter before they strung together some stops against Davis Mills and the Texans.
Reasons To Bet The Under
The Saints pass rush has to come around some time right? This was a borderline elite defense on paper and it seems hard to imagine they can continue to play this poorly all season. Now would be a good time to start against a Raiders team in the middle of most of the pass blocking metrics but that looked rough on paper in that department entering the season. And Dalton won’t give away 14 free points every week.
Raiders At Saints Matchups To Watch For
Josh Jacobs Vs. Saints Run Defense
Here’s what Jacobs has done on the ground over the last three games:
They got two wins and a narrow loss to a top team in that time. Slowing Jacobs will be paramount. But luckily, that’s strength on strength since the Saints have a top-seven run defense by EPA/play allowed and success rate.
Davante Adams Vs. Saints CBs
Marshon Lattimore hasn’t played since Week 5. Paulson Adebo has been both bad and hurt after a very promising rookie season. The Saints are looking potentially rough at corner, although they do get extra rest before this one. Davante Adams may not be producing at his Packers peak, but he’s still a dangerous weapon as he showed the Chiefs. He’ll surely shred any backups placed in front of him if indeed that proves the case.
Andy Dalton Vs. Raiders Pass Rush
At this point, we probably have to assume Dalton will start going forward until we see otherwise considering Jameis Winston sustained multiple fractures in his back. Dalton’s play has fallen off massively under pressure this season — more than 40 points of passer rating according to PFF. He crumbled against the Cardinals. The Raiders have struggled to generate sacks (league low nine), but they do have a couple of high-pedigree rushers in Chandler Jones and Maxx Crosby. If those guys can get it going, the Saints may implode again.
Neither offense figures to have a ton of trouble moving the ball in this one. The Raiders offense is hitting its stride and getting a bit healthier with pass catchers, although (the underachieving) Darren Waller may sit this one out. And the Saints have been the reverse of what was expected, great on offense but getting torched on defense. In a dome and with multiple Saints questionable, points figure to be scored. Speaking of questionable Saints, watch for the statuses of Michael Thomas, Jarvis Landry, Andrus Peat and their two starting corners. That may ultimately determine which side should be favored here after the market gave the Saints the nod in the look-ahead lines.
Best of luck betting on Raiders Saints odds.
