New York Jets vs Las Vegas Raiders – Picks and Predictions
Week 10 of the 2023 NFL season will bring us a matchup between the New York Jets (4-4) and Las Vegas Raiders (4-5) on Sunday Night Football.
Head-to-Head: New York Jets vs Las Vegas Raiders
From purely looking at the standings, there’s little separating the Jets and Raiders. They’re 4-4 and 4-5, they’re 4-3-1 and 4-4-1 against the spread, and the Over is 3-5 and 2-7 in each team’s games. The teams have played 10 games against one another since 2006, in which time they’ve split the series evenly. New York’s offense ranks 31st in the league in yards per game (272.9) while Las Vegas’ ranks 30th (275.6) There’s no obvious reason to favor one team over the other, and that’s reflected in the spread.
The Jets spent last week falling 6-27 to the Chargers, who’ve handled their business two weeks in a row and appear to be gaining momentum at the right time. The offense gained only 64 yards on 20 rushing attempts while giving up 57 yards over 8 sacks, and the team lost another 40 yards overall on 8 penalties.
Meanwhile, the Raiders played their first game on Sunday since the promotion of Antonio Pierce to interim head coach – Josh McDaniels became the first head coach to lose his job after the team’s 14-26 loss to the Lions on Monday Night Football. Their effort in Pierce’s first game in the role showed significant improvement, with the team winning a 30-6 rout of the Giants at home.
While the Giants have been far from a contender this season, their loss to the Raiders came only a week after a much, much closer loss to the Jets. Gang Green fought hard and needed both overtime and a significant amount of luck to beat the Giants 13-10, despite the Giants finishing the game with a net total of -9 passing yards.

New York Jets vs Las Vegas Raiders Predictions
Some people may look at what the Raiders did to the Giants last week, then at the total for this game, and sprint to the over. That’s understandable, but they’re going up against a Jets defense that has only allowed 30 points to one opponent this season: the Week 2 Cowboys. Through an October slate that featured the Chiefs, Broncos, and Eagles, in addition to the Giants, the Jets allowed no more than 23 points to an opponent. It’d be noteworthy if the Raiders broke that trend, even with the inherent unpredictability of the interim coach experience.
Prediction: Under 36.5
