The Las Vegas Chargers and Arizona Cardinals both went 0-1 in Week 1, and both expected playoff teams need a big win in Week 2. Kade Kimble takes a look at a potential impact player in the Week 2 matchup.

Las Vegas Raiders vs. Arizona Cardinals Prediction, Player Prop Pick, Odds: Can We Bank on Davante Adams?

The Las Vegas Raiders and the Arizona Cardinals last played in 2018. The Raiders ended up winning 23-21 in a close game. At that time, both teams were in the hunt for the top pick, which was eventually awarded to the Cardinals for having the worst record. The Raiders had the fourth overall pick, not far behind the Cardinals. 

Now in 2022, both teams are playoff teams, but both of them are 0-1 and want to avoid going 0-2, which would hurt both teams’ playoff chances for the season.

Las Vegas Raiders vs. Arizona Cardinals Prediction 

Both teams lost their Week 1 matchup, and they both will be looking to even out their record in Week 2. For the Raiders, this game will act as their home opener, as their Week One matchup was over in Los Angeles against their divisional rivals the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Cardinals played another AFC West team in their Week 1 matchup, losing to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. Mahomes threw for five touchdowns on the Cardinals. Expect Derek Carr and the Raiders’ offense to be able to throw all over the Cardinals' defense. 

Davante Adams has been a top wide receiver in the league for years, and he’s been Aaron Roders’ No. 1 option for a while now, too. Now playing with his college QB, Adams was targeted 17 times as the Raiders' No. 1 option in Week 1, catching ten of the targets for 141 yards. With the 17 targets, Adams was targeted on nearly half of Carr's passes. 

Because of the Cardinal’s weak secondary, and Adams already catching 10 passes against a good secondary, you can assume Adams will get the targets needed to cover his player prop of over 7.5 receptions in Week 2. 

One can assume, with the Cardinals' ability to put up points, that this game could end up becoming a shootout between the two teams, with both teams scoring multiple touchdowns. Adams' ability to catch contested passes increases his chances of getting targeted in the red zone, and in a shootout, you can expect the Raiders to get the opportunity quite a bit.
