The Las Vegas Raiders and New Orleans Saints will end Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season with a Monday Night Football matchup to open Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. The game will kick off at 8:15 p.m. ET and will be aired on ESPN.
Both teams are 1-0 on the year and are looking to stay undefeated. Las Vegas took down a Carolina Panthers team in rebuilding mode while New Orleans got the better of a Tampa Bay Buccaneers squad looking to compete for a Super Bowl following the addition of Tom Brady over the offseason.
If you can’t watch this game on TV, you have the option to stream the matchup on WatchESPN, which requires a cable log-in. If you don’t have cable, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream Monday Night Football this week.
The game is often a little bit delayed on live streams, but usually it’s only between 30 and 60 seconds behind the TV broadcast. That can impact you if you’re on Twitter during the game, but otherwise it’s an easy option.
The Saints are a 5.5-point favorite and are favored to win at -230 to win, but I’m interested to see who Brees will choose as his main target while Michael Thomas is out with an ankle injury. Jared Cook will most likely benefit from most among New Orleans pass catchers, but expect Alvin Kamara to pace the visitors in touches. The Saints should win this game pretty easily and I’d bet on the under for total points (48.5). New Orleans was too good at shutting down to give up a ton of yardage to the Raiders’ young receivers. I doubt that Las Vegas will be able to keep up with the Saints’ scoring.
