The Las Vegas Raiders made one of the first moves of the offseason by letting go of general manager Mike Mayock. Mayock was replaced by a Patriots executive, Dave Ziegler, as GM. Then, they hired Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to be their head coach, deciding not to retain Rich Bassicia. There’s a lot of turnover in the coaching ranks, but that may not be all. Derek Carr has a new running mate– star receiver Davante Adams, who was landed in a trade with the Packers. Notably, Carr and Adams did damage as college teammates at Fresno State, breaking plenty of records that still stand at the school today.
Below, you can find Las Vegas Raiders odds for 2022. Included is a weekly outlook, odds for every game this season, futures, and more.
Week 1 Preview: Raiders at Chargers
The Las Vegas Raiders are road underdogs in their Week 1 matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers. It’s the first game with Derek Carr and Davante Adams playing together since their college days at Fresno State. Adams will certainly draw attention from the Chargers’ newly-acquired top corner J.C. Jackson. Oddsmakers expect a higher-scoring game, which has an over/under of points.

Las Vegas Raiders futures odds
Futures are long-term bets that can range from an offseason to a full season (or beyond). Team win totals, award winners, and player performance are common futures.
Raiders Super Bowl 57 odds
The Las Vegas Raiders are to win the Super Bowl in 2023.
Raiders prop bets
Prop bets are based on individual performance, typically surrounding players. Last season, Josh Jacobs had a projected rushing total of 66.5 yards in the Raiders’ Week 11 matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs. Those who thought Jacobs would rush for 67 or more yards would bet the over on his rushing props and those who thought he would fail to rush for 67 yards would bet the under. Jacobs only managed 55 yards on the ground that week, giving those who bet the under the win.

How to bet on the Las Vegas Raiders
The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:
- Raiders +185
- Steelers -130
The Raiders are considered underdogs in this matchup (indicated by +185), paying out $285 total for a $100 bet ($185 in winnings). The Steelers are the underdog in this matchup, requiring a $130 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.
Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:
- Raiders -2.5 (-110)
- Eagles +2.5 (-110)
In this example, Las Vegas is favored by 2.5 points, indicated by “-2.5.” If the Raiders win the game 24-21, the Raiders (-2.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Eagles keep the game within three and lose 21-20, the Eagles (+2.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.
Point total (over/under)
The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example a Raiders matchup with the Cleveland Browns had a projected point total of 50.5 points. Las Vegas won that game 16-6, totaling just 22 points. Those who bet under the point total would have cashed out from that week.
The Raiders defense struggled mightily this season, often getting Vegas into shootouts; they had point totals of 72, 71, and 66 points this season. Due to this (and Vegas’ ability to score in chunks, at times), the Raiders often saw higher projected point totals, typically between 54 and 58 points on a given week.
In-play and live betting
Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Raiders (-225) were heavily favored against the Jets (+190) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Raiders to win would win just $4.44.
However, say the Raiders fell to a big 20-0 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Jets, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Raiders to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take Las Vegas (+130) at halftime and the Raiders pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $4.44 (plus the initial $10 bet).
This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Jets (+190) in that game, but Vegas jumps out to a 16-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on the Raiders (-270) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.
Parlays and teasers
You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.
Raiders 2021 recap
Record: 10-7, Second in AFC West. Lost Wild Card round to Bengals
Record ATS: 8-9
Over/under record: 8-9
The job interim coach Rich Bassicia did with this Raiders team is to be commended. He led them to a playoff berth despite a surprise midseason firing of Jon Gruden and a host of other off-field issues with players. They were ultimately bested by Cincinnati in the AFC Wild Card round in a close game. Pass rusher Maxx Crosby came into his own and earned All Pro honors. However, Derek Carr was left without weapons at many times due to injuries to Darren Waller and a lack of weapons at the receiver position.
