The 1-1 Fins travel to Sin City to take on the unbeaten Raiders. Will Miami bounce back from an embarrassing loss or, will the Raiders move to 3-0?

Miami were shut out in Week 2 by the Buffalo Bills in a 35-0 destruction. Even worse for the Fins was the loss of QB Tua Tagovailoa who left the game with a rib injury and has since been placed on IR, meaning he’ll miss at least the next few weeks. The Dolphin O-Line was unable to protect Tua and then Jacoby Brissett against a fearsome Bills pass-rush and things don’t get much easier for that turnstile like O-Line as Maxx Crosby and Yannick Ngakoue will be pinning their ears back and hunting Brissett.

The Raiders have back to back games as underdogs and were impressive passing the ball in both Derek Carr has over 800 passing yards against Ravens and Steelers defenses touted as two of the best in the NFL. Kenyan Drake has been an important part of the passing game out of the backfield with the RB catching 5 passes in both games this season, yet the bookies still keep setting his U/O receptions line at 2.5 so until they adjust we’ll just keep playing it. 

Spread: Raiders -3.5

Total Match Points line: 45.0

Game Prediction: Raiders 27-21 Dolphins

Best Bet: Raiders to win & Kenyan Drake over 2.5 receptions @ 8/5 with Bet365 Bet Builder. [0.5]
