Despite covering as a home favorite last week against Tampa Bay, Sean Payton is a dismal 10-19 ATS during the first 2 weeks of the season during his tenure with New Orleans. The Raiders will play in the new stadium for a first time. Regardless of there being no fans in attendance, it should provide the home team with an additional spark, and especially as an underdog versus one of the elite teams in football. By the way, the saints will be without star wide receiver Michael Thomas (ankle) tonight who led the NFL in pass receptions a season ago.
Any NFL underdog in September who is facing a team coming off a home win, resulted in those underdogs going a very profitable 69-32 ATS since 2016. Additionally, underdogs in this identical situation are an even better 18-6 ATS (75%) since 2018. Bet on the Raiders plus the points for a 5* wager.
