Despite the Panthers having home field advantage, the Raiders are currently slight favorites. While that may have some leaning towards the home underdog, the Raiders are favored for a reason. Carolina has a new head coach, a new offensive coordinator, a new defensive coordinator and a new starting QB. Under normal circurmstances, that might not be such a bad thing. After all, everyone is surely hungry to get the new era started with a win. However, these circumstances aren't normal. Due to the pandemic, the team hasn't had a chance to get together and that is likely to make adjusting to all the new faces/schemes difficult. Consider Vegas.
Play - Chiefs-Texans UNDER
Edges - The 2020 season debuts with the rematch from last year’s Divisional Round matchup in which the Chiefs blew out the Texans, 51-31, after trailing by 24 points in the second quarter, only to score 41 unanswered points on seven consecutive drives. With defending Super Bowl champions just 1-6-1 UNDER on Thursdays the past five seasons, as well as 3-9-1 UNDER in home openers since 2007, we’ll take advantage of a very popular public line and go UNDER the total in this game. We recommend a 1* play on UNDER the total. Thank you and good luck as always.

Dodgers vs. Padres OVER 7.5
The LA Dodgers (7-3) are a (-140 favorite) when they take on the San Diego Padres (6-4) (+120 underdog) on Monday evening at 9:10 ET from Petco Park in San Diego. The O/U has been set at 7.5.
Walker Buehler (R) with a 4.91 ERA and 1.09 WHIP will start for LA, and Chris Paddack (R) with a 1.64 ERA and 1.00 WHIP will be on the bump for San Diego. I think the line is assuming that Buehler is going to be ace worthy starting right now. I for one am not buying into that just yet.
The Dodgers have won five of six coming into Monday, and they won their Saturday game 11-2 over the DBacks, and on Sunday won 3-0. Kershaw threw 5 2/3 sharp innings in his season debut, Bellinger hit his first home run of the season and the Dodgers looked good.
The Padres lost their two most recent games 6-1 Saturday to the Rockies and then 9-6 on Sunday, but there is a silver lining here for over bettors. The Padres have scored at least three runs in nine of their 10 games. They can try to match the Dodgers output here, and for my money the Padres could have been been 7-3, or even 8-2. They are playing well despite their record.
Both these teams can hit, and that's why I like the OVER on Monday. Nice warm weather, a jacked up Padres team welcoming in their cross-state rivals, who knows we could see an upset here as well, but for this free play the OVER is the way to go. YES, I know the Padres went 6-13 against Los Angeles in 2019, but that was last year right?
Some betting trends to consider. The OVER has cashed in three of the Padres last four games. The Padres are 5-1 in Paddacks last 6 home starts, which boosts my confidence in the OVER here.
I'm forecasting 10 runs in this one. Play the over.
Good Luck, Razor Ray.
