Silver Minings: Raiders given 10% chance to beat Saints

The hate is real between Las Vegas and New Orleans

The Raiders will have their first home game in their brand new Allegiant Stadium on Monday night. Though it’s the home opener, there will be no fans in attendance, which takes away a major home-field advantage. Whether there are fans or not, the New Orleans Saints would still likely be favored in this game.

They are still favored, as they are 5.5 point favorites. However, nobody is giving the Raiders a shot at winning this game — 90% of experts surveyed by NFL Pickwatch are picking the Saints to win again in Week 2. 9 out of 10 people!

Surprisingly, the Saints aren’t even the most favored team this week, as there are nine different teams that were given higher than a 91 percent chance of winning. So in a way, I guess the Raiders are getting ... respected?
