LAS VEGAS – In Week 13 of the season, while the Las Vegas Raiders and Washington Football Team matchup might not stand out, the public betting splits show tons of uncertainty of where to lean.
Las Vegas Raiders Vs. Washington Football Team
- Moneyline: Raiders (-125) vs. WFT (+105)
- Spread: Raiders -1.5
- Total: 49.5 Points
The uncertainty comes as legal sports betting sites are taking in 68% of the betting handle and 63% of the total bets on the Raiders to cover the spread. However, on the moneyline, Washington Football Team is seeing 47% of total bets, but sharps are leaning on them with 51% of the total betting handle.
One thing to note about the uncertainty is that these are the only NFL odds that have not shifted since opening up earlier in the week as the spread has remained at 1.5 points in favor of the Raiders. It also makes sense being that both teams have a below .500 record against the spread this season as the Raiders are 5-6 and Washington is 4-7.
Which Way To Lean
Aside from the uncertainty on the betting splits, the stats do speak for themselves and the Washington Football Team should not be counted out. Although the Raiders are favored, they have been struggling tremendously in their last four games as they have not only gone 1-3 on the moneyline but also on the spread.
As for Washington, they seem to have slightly turned this around in their last four games going 3-1 winning their last three games. They have also covered the spread in their last three games.
With that, this would be a great game to use the uncertainty as an advantage and get in on the longer odds for Washington.
