Experts share their picks for the Patriots Week 6 matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders, presented by SERVPRO.

Mike Reiss, ESPN:

Pick: Patriots 17, Raiders 13

Tough to invest in the Patriots based on their last two games. Facing what feels like a last-stand type of situation, this is a pick that reflects the belief that there are too many high-character players in the locker room to turn in a third straight dud.

Ali Bhanpuri, NFL.com: Raiders 21, Patriots 17

Brooke Cersosimo, NFL.com: Raiders 20, Patriots 18

Dan Parr, NFL.com: Raiders 20, Patriots 16

Gennaro Filice, NFL.com: Raiders 24, Patriots 14

Tom Blair, NFL.com: Raiders 17, Patriots 10

Why Tom is taking the Raiders: The Patriots haven't averaged fewer than 20 points per game since 2000, Bill Belichick's first year on the job. And even that team managed 6.3 more points per game than this year's squad, which, at 11 points per game, is stunningly close to the single-digit mark. I don't know if I can trust the Raiders to coast to victory, but they're trending in a better direction than New England and have a clear talent advantage.

Pete Prisco, CBS Sports:

Pick: Patriots 23, Raiders 20

This pits Josh McDaniels against his former boss in Bill Belichick. The Raiders are coming off a Monday night victory, while the Patriots are coming off two awful losses in a row. But I think the Patriots will get back on track here. There isn't much difference between these teams. New England in an upset.

Mike Florio: Raiders 21, Patriots 17

Chris Simms: Raiders 20, Patriots 16

Paul Perillo, Patriots.com:

Pick: Raiders 19, Patriots 13

Mac Jones and the offense continue to struggle while Jimmy G. and Vegas find just enough to squeak by.

Mike Dussault, Patriots.com:

Pick: Raiders 24, Patriots 10

The Patriots head back to what has already become a house of horrors for them in Vegas after jarring preseason and regular season losses there in 2022. New England badly needs a win but Vegas' staff and players know what they're up against and have the top-end talent edge on both sides of the ball. Maxx Crosby and Davante Adams are too much for the Patriots to get back on the winning track.

Evan Lazar, Patriots.com:

Pick: Raiders 20, Patriots 14

As much as I want to see the Patriots get a win, I'm trusting the talent on the Raiders offense more than the current state of things offensively for New England. Almost like a division game, I expect this one to be close with so much familiarity between the two teams.
