The New England Patriots are an odd team. They’re currently in the playoffs, but I’d think every team in the NFL would love a first round matchup with them. Their play calling is atrocious and has held them back. With their defensive success, they should be much better than they are.
The Raiders may be the biggest disappointment in the NFL. Their loss to the Rams on Thursday Night Football shows how big of a disappointment they've been. Davante Adams has been stellar which is no surprise, but Derek Carr has struggled. Their defense has also had some struggles. They need a true CB1, hopefully they can find that this season.
The Patriots are a one-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook and the point total sits at 44.5. New England is -115 on the moneyline while the Raiders are -105.
