The AFC West hasn’t seen a team other than the Denver Broncos or Kansas City Chiefs win the title going back to 2010. Entering the 2024-25 NFL betting season, KC has taken home bragging rights eight straight times. During that stretch, the Las Vegas Raiders have come in second place four times, third place three times, and brought up the rear of the division standings once. Of the three teams playing runner-up to the current Super Bowl champs, it can be argued that Vegas has been the most successful. It however has just a pair of playoff appearances to show for its work, and that simply just won’t get the job done for this once proud franchise. The chips still look to be stacked against the team this season with their odds of making the playoffs chiming in at +280 at the online sportsbook.

A positive changing of the guard did however take place following the 26-14 defeat at Detroit in Week 8 of last season when Mark Davis made the decision to can Josh McDaniels and supplant the interim head coach tag upon Antonio Pierce. The end results were night and day different from that point forward. The team would close the year 5-4 SU and covered the closing NFL odds in all but two of their final nine played games. Included in the mix of wins was a 20-14 outright win as 11-point Arrowhead dogs, and a you wouldn’t believe it of you even saw it 63-21 demolition of the division rival Chargers under the Thursday night lights. With the atmosphere and competitiveness of the franchise completely changed, the interim tag was taken off Pierce who will now enter the year as the official head coach of the Silver and Black.

Poor quarterback play hampered the Raiders' offense last season, which was unfortunate given the talent in their receiving corps. The combination of Jimmy Garoppolo and rookie Aidan O’Connell produced just 3,423 yards and 19 touchdowns, along with 16 interceptions. To address this, the Raiders signed Gardner Minshew as their new QB1 in the offseason. Minshew stepped in for an injured Anthony Richardson with the Colts last year, helping them to the league's 20th-ranked passing attack. For context, Las Vegas ranked 23rd, despite having better receivers and tight ends. Minshew threw for over 3,300 yards and had a 15:9 TD/INT ratio in 13 starts. While this isn't a huge upgrade, his veteran presence and better ball security could lead to improved results for an offense that averaged less than 290 yards and 20 points per game last season.

With Josh Jacobs now in Green Bay, Zamir White will have the opportunity to step up and prove his worth. It remains to be seen if he can handle the rigors of a full 17-game season, but he showed promise when filling in for Jacobs when sidelined due to a myriad of injuries last year. The addition of Brock Bowers in the NFL Draft provides new OC Luke Getsy with another versatile weapon, complementing Michael Mayer,  who wasn’t utilized nearly enough last year after only hauling in 27 receptions for 304 yards and a couple scores last season. The Raiders have the pieces to field a formidable offense capable of challenging any defense. Success will largely depend on the quarterback play, with Minshew and O’Connell both likely to see action. NFL bettors and fantasy enthusiasts are hopeful this offense will take a significant step forward in Pierce's first full season calling the shots.

As previously mentioned, the odds are stacked against the Raiders making any significant noise this football betting season. They are heavy favorites to miss the playoffs, have a projected win total of just 6.5 games, and are 12-1 longshots to win the division.

However, there is slightly more confidence in their ability to surpass their win total, with heavier -129 odds currently supplanted on the over at the online sportsbook. Vegas has exceeded its win total four of the last five seasons including last year when it faced the same 6.5-game impost and won eight games. Despite this, Las Vegas faces a daunting schedule that Sharp Football Analysis ranks as the ninth toughest in the league. In addition to six games against AFC West rivals, the Raiders will face teams from the AFC North and NFC South, along with standalone games against the Rams, Dolphins, and Jaguars—all of which are favored or slight underdogs to make the playoffs. Nine of 17 games will be played away from Allegiant Stadium with currently one prime time game scheduled against the Atlanta Falcons whom they’ll host in the Week 15 installment of Monday Night Football.

Once upon a time, the Las Vegas Raiders were the winningest franchise in professional sports. From 1967 through 2002, the Raiders had the highest winning percentage of all teams in the major professional sports. During that time, the Raiders won three Super Bowl championships and threatened for several more.

Just as incredible are the humble beginnings of the franchise. The Raiders were born in 1960 as charter members of the American Football League. They have been in the same AFC West division with the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, and Denver Broncos from the start of operations.

In the Raiders' early years were heavy losses on the field and the balance sheet. The team nearly folded on multiple occasions. But in 1963, Al Davis was the dynamic leader that changed everything. Davis took over as head coach and general manager in 1963 and improved the Raiders from 1-13 to 10-4 as a rookie. Davis changed the team colors to silver and black and made the team in his image.

However, the final years of the Davis era were sad and pathetic. The Raiders turned into consistently big losers and played before a dilapidated and half-empty Oakland Coliseum. When Al Davis died, the team passed to his son Mark. Knowing he needed a jolt of increased revenue to survive, Mark Davis moved the team to Las Vegas and sparking new Allegiant Stadium in 2020. Since then, the Silver and Black have produced just one winning season and was unceremoniously bounced from the Wild Card Round by the Cincinnati Bengals.
