The return of Josh Jacobs is huge for the Raiders Super Bowl 58 odds and their Week 1 odds. Jacobs led the league with 1,653 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns in 2022.
Denver’s passing defense with safety Justin Simmons and cornerback Patrick Surtain II will be a tough first test for Garoppolo in Las Vegas, However, the presence of Jacobs in the Raiders’ backfield could open up downfield passing opportunities to star receiver Davante Adams.
Adams led the NFL with 14 receiving touchdowns in 2022 and will be a threat to score in Denver on Sunday. His +140 odds to score an anytime touchdown are valuable as the clear number one receiver on the Raiders offense.
