Packers vs. Raiders Week 5 Opening Odds 

Green Bay has had some issues on offense lately, with just 3 points in the first halves of its past two games combined, but it’s hard to see why the Packers are favored by LESS than a field goal in this matchup. 

The Raiders have lost three straight games by an average of 13.3 points per game and would be winless if not for a 17-16 win over Denver in Week 1. 

When you factor in the team’s latest injuries, including Jimmy Garoppolo (concussion) and Davante Adams (shoulder), it could be a challenge for Las Vegas to battle back from a deficit. 

Las Vegas is also averaging 3.0 yards per rush (31st in NFL), so it’s not as if it can rely on the run game to sustain many drives, either. 

With that in mind, it might be worth looking into betting on under 44 total points. 

The under has hit in 3-of-4 Las Vegas games this season, and even though the under has hit in just 1-of-4 games for Green Bay, the Packers might not need to chase points this week.

The Packers have covered the spread in 3-of-4 games this season and have allowed only the Lions to eclipse 25 points so far. And the team is only getting healthier, with Aaron Jones and Christian Watson returning to the fold last week.

However you want to bet on this game is up to you, but why not take the sweat out of that bet (up to $1,000) with this new-user offer at Caesars Sportsbook?
