Baltimore @ Las Vegas
Last Season Records: Las Vegas 8-8; Baltimore 11-5
Las Vegas, Nevada–Allegiant Stadium will be rocking tonight as the Las Vegas Raiders will pay host on Monday Night Football to the Baltimore Ravens to kick off the 2021 campaign.
Remember the rule of five. If the Las Vegas Raiders win that key statistical battle, today’s game is over. For those who don’t remember it, it has to do with sacks and turnovers. If the Raiders have three sacks and give up two, that means they are plus one. If they then get four turnovers and give up only one, that means they are plus three. That would give them a plus-four for the day. They want to get to a plus-five ratio every game. Teams that reach the rule of five scenarios win 91 percent of their ball games on average.
The Baltimore Ravens and the Las Vegas Raiders are opening their 2021 seasons against one another at 8:15 p.m. ET on Monday at Allegiant Stadium. Baltimore is coming off of an 11-5 season with hopes of advancing further than the second round of the playoffs, where they were eliminated by the Buffalo Bills 17-3. On the other hand, Las Vegas missed the playoffs altogether last season and is looking forward to a clean start.
A pair of last-season defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Ravens were third best in touchdowns allowed, finishing the 2020 season giving up only 34. Less enviably, Las Vegas was third worst when it came to rushing touchdowns allowed last season, with the squad giving up 24 overall. The good news for Las Vegas, of course, is that these forces working against them might not carry over into the new season.
Baltimore is the favorite in this one, with an expected 4.5-point margin of victory. A win is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.
