    Las Vegas Raiders History

    The Raiders who were once a strong feature in the postseason throughout the early days, have not been able to live up to the heights they once had. The Raiders who began their journey in Oakland in 1960 have for the most part been starved of mainstream success, as they have been based in Oakland, Los Angeles, Oakland (again) and now have moved permanently to Las Vegas ahead of the 2020 season. 

    This was especially evident in the Raiders first three years in the AFL as they managed to win only nine games from 1960 to 1962, while losing 33 games (they won six games in the 1960 season, two games in the 1961 season and one game in the 1962 season), which prompted the franchise to reevaluate their stance. 

    After winning six games in three years it prompted the Raiders to sign Al Davis for the 1963 season and he instantly changed the culture of the team. It didn’t take long for Davis to implement change in the squad as by the end of his first season in charge he led them to a 10-4 record overcoming a one win season the year prior as it earned him Coach of the Year honours. 

    Davis left for the 1966 season, but came back after a stint at being on the commissioner for the AFL, and began where he left off but this time he turned the franchise into a prominent feature in the postseason. 

    By 1967 they got their first real chance at being a successful franchise as they made it to the second ever Super Bowl in Super Bowl II, after posting a 13-1 record which saw them play in the playoffs for the first time. 

    They met the Green Bay Packers in the Super Bowl after defeating Houston Oilers in the conference championship, but they couldn’t get their hands on the trophy as they were defeated by the Packers. 

    Despite the Super Bowl loss, the Raiders used that as a platform to build on from 1968 to 1980, when they only missed the playoffs three times (1971, 1978 and 1979). After losing three consecutive conference finals in 1973, 1974 and 1975, the Raiders finally managed to appear in their second Super Bowl for Super Bowl XI. 

    Unlike in Super Bowl II, the Raiders had their first taste of NFL glory when they captured the Super Bowl XI with a win over Minnesota Vikings. Three years later, the Raiders were once again crowned Super Bowl champions as they beat the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl XV. 

    Two years after their Super Bowl success the Raiders were on the move to Los Angeles where they would spend 12 years. But the move didn’t affect them the slightest as in the second year in their new home they made the Super Bowl for the third time and made no mistake as they clinched their third Vince Lombardi trophy defeating the Washington Commanders 38-9 in Super Bowl XVIII. 

    They made the playoffs the following two years, but could only manage a wildcard berth, with the rest of the 80s not seeing much time in the postseason. That changed by the start of the 90s, as the closest they came to another Super Bowl birth was in 1990 when coach Art Shell (who was in his second season, coaching the team from 1989 to 1994) led them to the Conference Championship where they fell to the Buffalo Bills. 

    Nearing the end of their stay in Los Angeles the Raiders only managed to make two more playoff appearances in 1991 and 1993, but crashed out in the wildcard and divisional round. By 1994 the Raiders moved back to their original home in Oakland, and this time they played in a renovated stadium with a new training base, however, with their first season back they missed the playoffs. 

    Fortunes started to come by the change of the millennium as the Raiders returned to the playoffs after a six year absence, but couldn’t win the Conference Championship in 2000 to make it to another Super Bowl. 

    Two years later, the Raiders would capture their third division championship in a row after ending the regular season with an 11-5 record, en route to the Super Bowl XXXVII, defeating New York Jets and Tennessee in the process, but fell short when it mattered the most going down to Tampa Bay. 

    It would be another long wait before the Raiders hopeful saw any sort of postseason action, as the Raiders returned to the playoffs in 2016 ending a 14 year drought. As it turned out it wasn’t worth the wait as they got done in the wild card round by Houston Texans. 

    The Raiders ended their last season in Oakland with a 7-9 win loss record, as they missed the playoffs for the third consecutive time, before their move to Las Vegas for the 2020 NFL season. 

    In their first season in Las Vegas, the Raiders marginally improved their win-loss record from the 2019 season, winning eight of their 16 games in 2020. Las Vegas were one of two teams to beat the Kansas City Chiefs in the regular season, defeating the reigning Super Bowl champions in Week 5. However, the Raiders could not get a second win over the Chiefs in Week 11 and after dropping a second consecutive game against the Falcons in Week 12, Las Vegas’ playoff hopes were all but gone.

    The 2021 Las Vegas Raiders season was certainly an interesting one. A couple of players had more involvement with the Las Vegas PD than they did with the Raiders. They also dismissed their coach midseason as well. However, they still managed to make the playoffs but they lost in the first round.

    Expert 2022-23 Picks & Preview on Las Vegas Raiders

    If you are a fan of the Las Vegas Raiders, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2022-23 season. Do the Las Vegas Raiders have the star power to make it all the way to the playoffs and win the Super Bowl in 2023?

    Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Las Vegas Raiders:

    Front Office

    It was a season full of controversy for the Las Vegas Raiders both on the field and off the field as they paid John Gruden a lot of money and he didn’t even make it through last season. Now Josh McDaniels will take the reins as the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders and his second stint as an NFL head coach. 

    He is certainly hoping the second time around will be a lot better than the first when he was the head coach of the Denver Broncos back at the end of the 2010s. He has an overall record of 11-17 in a season and a half as a head coach in the NFL. 

    Offense

    The Las Vegas Raiders picked up a huge addition over the off-season as they reunited quarterback Derek Carr and his old college teammate, one of the best receivers in the league, Davante Adams. They still have Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow as well as a formidable running back in Josh Jacobs. 

    This Las Vegas offense has a really great shot at ending up as the highest scoring offense in the NFL this season with all the weapons they have surrounding Derek Carr who is a top 15 quarterback in his own right. Their one weakness in this offense is the offensive line and they will have to improve fast and make sure they give Carr enough time to find his weapons on the field. 

    Defense

    Las Vegas looks to be solid on the defensive side of the ball as Maxx Crosby returns alongside Chandler Jones. They have one of the most dominant defensive end pairings in all of the National Football League. Andrew Billings and Bilal Nichols will be plugging up the middle while Denzel Perryman and Jayon Brown play at the linebacker spots. 

    Jonathan Abram is the man in the defensive backfield for the Raiders as they have a true game changer at every level of the defense this season. This unit has the potential to finish as a top 15 defensive squad in the National Football League this season as long as everybody remains healthy.

    Las Vegas Raiders Betting & Odds Preview 2022-23

    Last season the Las Vegas Raiders finished with a record of 10-7 and made the playoffs after a season full of controversy and this year they are expected to win less games then then did during the 2021-22 season. 

    Oddsmakers expect the Las Vegas Raiders to win around eight to nine of their seventeen games during the 2022-23 National Football League season. The odds for betting the over on the win line are currently (-120), while the odds for the betting the under on the win line are currently (+100) heading into the 2022-23 season. 

    Their odds to win their division are currently (+650) as they play in what is perhaps the most stacked division in all of the National Football League, while their odds to bring home a Conference Championship are (+2000) at the moment. 

    Their current odds to win the Super Bowl and bring home the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the season are listed at (+4000) heading into the 2022-23 National Football League season. This puts them as one of the teams in the middle of the pack in terms of odds to bring home the title this season.

    They are currently the favorites in seven of their seventeen games this season. As usual they are expected to win more games on their home field instead of having more wins on the road. They come into the 2022-23 National Football League season expected to be two possession favorites in zero of their seventeen games and two possession underdogs in zero of their seventeen games this season as well, which shows how balanced this team is.  

    It’ll be interesting to see how this team performs after all the changes during the offseason and while playing in such a stacked conference like the AFC. Due to the massive amount of parity in the National Football League, you never truly know what is going to happen from season to season. 

    But all signs point towards the Las Vegas Raiders being on the more successful end of the spectrum during the 2022-23 National Football League season with the additions they made over the offseason.
