The Raiders were up the entire game against the Cardinals last Sunday, but their lead was gone in a flash, and they headed to overtime. The score was 23-7 and fans in the stands started popping champagne, and yes literally popping bottles. Week 2 featured multiple collapses, and the Raiders unfortunately were one of those instances. The Raiders would lose the game 29-23 in overtime off a Hunter Renfrow fumble that was returned for the game-winning touchdown.

Those fans spilled onto the Las Vegas Strip, fuming off of a loss and sticky with $1,000 per bottle champagne.

Derek Carr led the way with 252 yards on 25-of-39 passing, while Kyler Murray led two touchdown drives in the final 8:13 of the game and capped it off with the untimed two-point conversion with zeros on the clock. Murray had 277 yards through the air, most of which came late in the game.

The Raiders have no time to dwell on the past because they have a Tennessee Titans team that is waiting and desperate to find a way to win a game. The Titans lost in Week 1 with a late two-point conversion call by Brian Daboll, and then Week 2 went as bad as it could go for the Titans. They were blown out by a white-hot Bills team 41-7 on Monday Night Football.

They now will get back home to Tennessee in this matchup, where the Titans will try to get their offense back on track. We cannot say we are surprised by their performance in the early going, mainly because we did not believe that Derrick Henry would be able to sustain the outrageous usage of the last few seasons. Henry has just 107 yards on 34 rushing attempts through the first two weeks. To put that into perspective, Josh Jacobs has 8 fewer rushing attempts but has racked up 19 more yards than Henry.

The Titans are listed as slight home underdogs with two full points in their back pocket. The line was opened at 2.5, but some Titans money has moved this line down a bit, even at some sportsbooks to just 1.5 at some books, though the line is still -2.5 at BetMGM. As always, we remind you that home underdogs in the NFL are always worth a look. Neither team has covered this season, so something has to give in the early morning window on Sunday.

The Raiders are just 4-9 against the spread in their last 13 games. The Titans have failed to cover in four straight games dating back to last season. When these two have matched up in the past though, the favorites have been a good follow. The favorite is 10-2 in their last 12. The road team, the Raiders in this situation, has covered five straight between these two franchises.

The total is set to 45.5 at BetMGM. This number has also been bet down a full point as some sharp action came in early, though it has gone back up to the opening number since then. The Raiders have seen the total go under in six of their last seven games. The Titans have also trended towards the under with six straight totals going under at home.

BetMGM Sportsbook will have all your betting needs. The BetMGM Sportsbook provides lines on the spread, totals, first halves, second halves, props and even live betting, all of which are eligible for your first bet at BetMGM. Remember to use the VIBONUS50 at sign-up to redeem your first bet risk-free up to $1,000 + $50 free.

Until next time, enjoy the ride.
