The Las Vegas Raiders will take on the Miami Dolphins in Week 16. Here are the safest and the best bets ahead of the matchup.
Raiders Week 16 best bets
Raiders (+3) +120 Vs. Dolphins (-3). -150
It’s always hard to bet against the Raiders, but today seems like a good time to do it. The Silver and Black are out a ton of starters on defense again, and even if they were healthy, 30+ points seems likely. The Dolphins are stout on defense, and will get backup Marcus Mariota or hobbled Derek Carr Saturday. Dolphins’ -3 seems like the lock of the week, and we’d put two units of your allotted gambling money on it.
The Over/Under (48)
This number is shockingly low, considering the Raiders are giving up crazy numbers on defense on a consistent basis. This Las Vegas team has given up more than 30 points nine times this season, and that seems likely again against the ‘Phins’. This means the Raiders would only need to score 18 points to cover the over. This is virtually a lock unless something crazy happens. They have gone over 48 points every week this season except for a terrible weather game in Cleveland. Bet heavy on this one!

Darren Waller Over 55.5 yards- Waller has over 75 yards in four of his last five ball games. It seems the offense is going through him more than ever, and both quarterbacks love him as a target. This prop should hit early tonight.
Myles Gaskin Over 50.5 yards- The Raiders run defense has been awful, Gaskin has been hurt but before that, he hit 50 yards three out of four times. This prop seems like a lock, especially if Miami gets a lead early.
