Best Las Vegas Raiders Player Props Week 3 Vs Titans
The Las Vegas Raiders have a ton of weapons. And they'll need every single one to escape the fearsome AFC West.

The Raiders are 2-point favorites according to the latest NFL lines, while the Over/Under is 45.5 points.
Best Raiders Player Props Week 3 Vs. Titans
Let's dive into the best Raiders player props to back on sports betting apps in Week 3:
Bet $10 Win $200 if Either Team Scores a Touchdown.
Daniel Carlson, Over 1.5 Field Goals Made
Odds: +105 at BetMGM
Daniel Carlson would be the NFL's best kicker if it weren't for Justin Tucker. He's made his last 22 field goals for the Raiders and has made 94% of his kicks since the start of the 2020 season. Another reason Carlson is among the best kickers in the NFL is due to his strong leg. He is 12 of 13 on kicks over 50 yards since 2020, with several makes beyond 54 yards.
Whenever the Raiders cross the opposing team's 40-yard line, they are in range for Carlson. And if the Raiders struggle to score many touchdowns in Week 3, they should have plenty of opportunities to kick field goals.
Through two games, Carlson has already made five field goals and this could be a game in which the Raiders give him three or even four chances to score points. With the odds set at +105 to make just two kicks, this feels like a really safe bet that is bound to hit. So don't be afraid to bet on the second-best kicker in the NFL to make a few field goals on Sunday.
Raiders RB Josh Jacobs under 76.5 total yards
Odds: -115 at BetMGM
Jacobs was the lead back for the Raiders in Week 2, touching the ball 20 times. No other running back on the roster had more than a single touch. But as we’ve seen already this season, Josh McDaniels can be fickle when it comes to the running back position.
In Week 1, Jacobs had just ten carries. He saw that number spike in Week 2, but that's due to the Cardinals never leading in the game until the final play of overtime.

Veteran running back Brandon Bolden is expected to return to the lineup in Week 3 and that could take away some of the passing down work for Jacobs. Plus, Bolden is a reliable blocker and he could get some extra work in this matchup as the Titans have one of the best defensive lines in the NFL. They could give the Raiders some real problems up front, especially on the interior offensive line.
That’s not great for Jacobs, who has averaged 4.0 yards per carry since the 2020 season. He will need a ton of touches to go over his yardage total on Sunday, but don't be surprised if this is a game where the Raiders use multiple backs.
Darren Waller, Over 47.5 Receiving Yards
Odds: -115 at BetMGM
This is one of the strangest lines of the week from NFL betting sites as Darren Waller has cleared 47.5 receiving yards in both contests this season. In fact, since his breakout season in 2019, Waller has averaged 69.7 receiving yards per game. What makes this an even safer bet in Week 3 is that slot receiver Hunter Renfrow is unlikely to play due to a concussion.
That means more middle-of-the-field targets for Waller and more opportunities to make plays after the catch. He'll undoubtedly split targets with Davante Adams, but expect this to be a game in which Waller receives at least eight targets from Derek Carr.
