Our picks, best bets

Pick against the spread: Raiders -4

As with all of these preseason games, it’s hard to make heads or tails about the matchup considering that most of the starters on both sides will get limited minutes if they play at all. On the Raiders’ side, we’ll most likely once again see the likes of Zamir White and Jarrett Stidham leading the charge on offense. We’ll take Vegas to cover the four-point spread.

Over/under: Over 36

With a few exceptions, most of these Week 1 preseason games have gone over on the total with final scores in the 40’s. 36 is a low bar to clear for both of these squads and we’ll take the over in this one.
