To put a cap on NFL betting for Week 1, Monday Night Football heads to Allegiant Stadium with a rowdy crowd, as the Las Vegas Raiders host the Baltimore Ravens. With fans packing this stadium for a regular-season game for the very first time, the energy is going to be electric. However, will it be enough for the Raiders to top a strong Ravens team? Here are some of the best NFL betting picks for Monday Night Football on BetMGM Sportsbook.
MNF NFL Betting Picks on BetMGM | Ravens vs. Raiders
Halftime/Final: Ravens/Ravens (+110)
The Ravens have begun to be overlooked a bit, following all of their injuries. While they lost talented players, the running back position is the easiest in the NFL to replace. So bettors can play the Ravens with full confidence. Along with being the better team top to bottom, they also have a track record of starting the season strong. The Ravens have outscored their last five Week 1 opponents by a combined 177-26. This is too large of a differential to ignore and bet against.
Darren Waller Anytime Touchdown (+105)
Darren Waller gets to open the season in front of a home Las Vegas crowd for the first time, and it is on prime-time television. Last year he led all tight ends in red-zone targets, with 22, which was 33% of his team’s red-zone targets last season. Josh Jacobs is questionable to play, and he led the NFL in red-zone opportunities last season. If he misses the game, the play on Waller is even better, and BetMGM is providing good odds for it.
Lamar Jackson Rushing Attempts: Over 10.5 (-200)
There is little doubt that Lamar Jackson is one of the best rushing quarterbacks of all time. Last season Jackson averaged over 10.5 rushing attempts per game. If he sticks to this average, he has a good chance to hit the over already. However, there is reason to believe his rushing will increase for tonight’s game. The Ravens’ top three running back have all been lost for the season in a short amount of time. While there are capable runners on the roster, the talent level has dipped, making Jackson’s legs clearly the most dangerous.
