Week number eight of the 2023–24 National Football League season wraps up in the motor city. As the Las Vegas Raiders will hit the road to play the Detroit Lions in this week eight game on Monday night. Both of these teams are having very different seasons this year as Vegas has been behind the change a little bit and Detroit looks like the clear in the NFC North division this season. Both of these teams will be looking for a crucial victory as we cross the midway point of the year and get ready for the back half of the regular season. This is a rare interconference matchup between two potential playoff teams this season, depending on how quick Las Vegas gets going.
It has been a slow start to the season for the Las Vegas Raiders as they come into this game with a losing record through their first seven games of the year. They have only managed to pick up three victories through their first seven games, and they will have to get a crucial fourth victory here in this one otherwise they will risk falling way behind the other teams in the AFC West division. With how loaded the AFC is this season a fifth loss this early on in the year could put them well out of playoff contention heading into the middle point of the regular season as well.
So this almost feels like a must win game for Las Vegas here on Monday night in Detroit. Jimmy Garoppolo will likely get the start under Center for the Las Vegas Raiders in this game and he will be looking to lead them to a much-needed victory over the Detroit Lions. They will have to get their key superstars like Josh Jacobs, and Davante Adams going in this one after a few weeks of lackluster production has left them in an unfortunate predicament at this point in the season.

The Detroit Lions are off to a fantastic start this season as they have picked up five victories through their first seven games of the season. They will be looking to pick up their sixth victory, and their first eight games of the year as they turned to the second half of the NFL season and extend their lead in the NFC North division as well. If Detroit can get hot at the right time, they have a legitimate chance to run away with the NFC North division, as the other three teams in the division are not playing too well at the moment.
You can argue that their only real competition left is Minnesota, and they just lost their quarterback for the remainder of the season with a torn Achilles Tendon. Detroit will be looking to keep the momentum rolling with a crucial victory in this game on Monday night against the Las Vegas Raiders at home where they have been very tough to beat throughout the years. Quarterback, Jared Goff has found a great rhythm since coming over from Los Angeles a few years ago, and he will be looking to put up more quality numbers in this game on Monday night as he looks to continue hooking up with wide receiver Amon-ra St Brown.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Las Vegas is 1-3 on the road this season
- Detroit is 2-1 at home this season
- Detroit is 1-0 after a loss this season
I expect this game to be all Detroit Lions here on Monday night in week number eight of the season. As I look for the Detroit Lions to pick up a solid victory at home over the Las Vegas Raiders to wrap up this week and grab their sixth victory of the season. Not only do I look for them to grab the win here in this when I also expect them to cover the spread in the process against a struggling and frustrated Las Vegas Raiders team.
