The Raiders had an inconsistent 2020 campaign in which they finished 8-8. Las Vegas failed to make the playoffs. Kickoff from Allegiant Stadium is set for 8:15 p.m. ET. The Ravens are four-point favorites in the latest Raiders vs. Ravens odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over-under for total points scored is 50.5.

• LV: Over is 8-0-1 in Raiders' last nine games as a home underdog
Why the Ravens can cover
Quarterback Lamar Jackson completed 64 percent of his passes for 2,757 yards with 26 passing touchdowns a year ago. The 2019 NFL MVP also lead the Ravens in rushing with 1,005 yards with seven touchdowns, averaging 6.3 yards per carry.
Jackson is one of the most electrifying players in the game and looks to start his 2021 season with a bang. The former Louisville Cardinal averaged 317 total yards per game while having the most rushing attempts per game as quarterback with 10.6. Jackson is always a threat with his arm and legs.
Why the Raiders can cover
Derek Carr had a steady 2020 season. Carr completed 67 percent of his passes for 4,103 yards and 27 passing touchdowns. He did a strong job of keeping the ball away from his opponents, only tossing nine interceptions on the year.
In a three-year span from 2018 to 2020, the Fresno State product has completed at least 67 percent of his passes and 4,000 passing yards. With the loss of Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters, look for Carr to be more aggressive and take more chances downfield.
How to make Raiders vs. Ravens picks
SportsLine's model is leaning under on the total. In fact, it says Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson barely tops 200 yards passing, while no Raider running back will go over 65 rushing yards. It also says one side of the spread cashes in more than 50 percent of simulations. You can only see who to back here.
