The Raiders make their Las Vegas debut when they host the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football.

They will christen their brand-new, $2 billion stadium at the same time, but there won't be any spectators on hand for the historic game.

"Obviously it means a lot, not only to us but to our fans in this community," said Josh Jacobs, who rushed for three touchdowns and 93 yards in a 34-30 victory at Carolina in the season opener. "We want to get a win especially with it being our first time in this stadium, so it's going to be huge."

It's also significant because both teams are 1-0.

Las Vegas was balanced on offense last week as Derek Carr passed for 239 yards and a touchdown with no interceptions or sacks.

"I love this city, moved out here after the season, and fell in love with it," Carr said of the move from Oakland. "We wish our city could experience it here with us. I'm sure they'll be around somewhere. I'm sure there will be a certain street or strip they'll be on."

The Raiders endured the loss of both right tackles during last week's game as Trent Brown (calf) was sidelined in the first quarter and Sam Young (groin) in the third quarter. Both players missed practice Thursday, as did two other starting linemen - center Rodney Hudson and guard Richie Incognito -- who were not injured but the team is trying to keep the veterans healthy for the duration of the season.

Las Vegas hopes the extra day of recovery for the Monday night game allows to line to get healthy.

The Saints' defensive line features five-time Pro Bowl end Cameron Jordan in a defense that sacked Tom Brady three times and intercepted him twice last week in spoiling Brady's debut with Tampa Bay, 34-23.

"Their D-line is disruptive," Carr said. "Obviously we know about Cam Jordan, but all those guys; they can all get to the passer and disrupt a game.

"Any time you play one of the best teams in the league you get excited about the challenge to see where you're at and try and compete and win the game."

The Raiders' defense likely won't have to contend with Saints All-Pro receiver Michael Thomas, who missed practice Thursday because of an ankle injury. Coach Sean Payton wouldn't comment on Thomas' status, but the receiver reportedly will miss multiple games.

Even with Thomas available for virtually the entire game last week, Drew Brees passed for just 160 yards, though he had two touchdowns and no interceptions.

The apparent loss of Thomas could create more opportunities for former 49ers receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who had three catches for 15 yards and a touchdown in his New Orleans debut last week.

Last season the Saints went 5-0 when Brees was sidelined and 2-0 when top running back Alvin Kamara was sidelined.

"Every week, guys are ready to play," said Kamara, who had a touchdown run and a touchdown catch last week. "Everybody takes pride in knowing what to do in case somebody goes down. Drew went down last year. I went down. You've got to keep moving."

The absence of spectators in Las Vegas won't be new for the Saints. There were no spectators in the Superdome last week.

"It'll be unusual that the first game there will be without fans," Payton said. "We'll get adjusted like we did the other day. When the schedule came out, you thought, 'Oh, there'll be a couple preseason games there. And then we will figure out what the crowd noise is like when we go there.'"

How Our Computer Picks System Works

Our software doesn't simulate sports results like our competitors, we track real bets.

We have exclusive access to a database with 10,000+ real bettors. Our software tracks all of these players in real-time.

Our proprietary algorithms then rank every handicapper in the database based on how well they perform by sport and bet type.

When our system identifies multiple sharps betting on the same outcome, our software automatically publishes the AI pick above.

We have zero control on the picks released by our software. It's simply using algorithms to generate the sharpest sports picks with the most value (+EV).

Why Are There No Computer Picks?

Our AI system generates quality picks with a proven return on investment (ROI).

We believe in quality over quantity.

Some days, there may be zero AI picks, as our algorithms haven't generated any picks with enough value to be released .

We recommend not looking at the volume of bets released by our AI software, but look at the results and profits generated.

If there are no computer picks listed here, we still have daily sports picks from the pros.

New Orleans Saints vs. Las Vegas Raiders

Derek Carr threw three touchdown passes as the Las Vegas Raiders christened their new stadium and new hometown with a 34-24 victory against the New Orleans Saints on Monday night.

Carr completed 28 of 38 passes for 282 yards and outperformed Drew Brees, the NFL's all-time leading passer, inside virtually empty $2 billion Allegiant Stadium. One of Carr's touchdowns went to Darren Waller, who finished with 12 catches for 103 yards.

The Raiders (2-0) scored 24 consecutive points and produced points on six of their final seven possessions to turn the game around. The Saints hurt themselves with 10 penalties for 129 yards.

Brees, who passed for just 160 yards in a season-opening win against Tampa Bay, completed 26 of 38 passes for 312 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the absence of All-Pro wide receiver Michael Thomas.

The game was tied at 17 at halftime, and the Raiders took their first lead of the game on the first possession of the third quarter. They drove to Carr's 1-yard touchdown pass to Waller on fourth down.

That gave Las Vegas a 24-17 lead that held up through the end of the third quarter.

Jalen Richard's 20-yard touchdown run gave the Raiders a 31-17 lead midway through the fourth quarter.

Alvin Kamara's 3-yard touchdown run pulled New Orleans within seven points with 4:33 remaining.

Daniel Carlson's 54-yard field goal completed the scoring with 1:05 remaining.

The first points in the new stadium came on the game's first possession as New Orleans (1-1) received the opening kickoff and drove to Wil Lutz's 31-yard field goal.

Kamara's 1-yard touchdown run increased the lead to 10-0 at the end of the first quarter.

Carr threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Alec Ingold to cut the lead to 10-7 midway through the second quarter.

The ensuing possession ended with a 6-yard touchdown pass from Brees to Jared Cook for a 17-7 Saints lead.

Carr came back with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Zay Jones to trim the lead to 17-14.

Nicholas Morrow intercepted Brees, setting up Carlson's 28-yard field goal that tied the score at halftime.
