Thursday Night Football for Week 14 is an interconference battle of two clubs that entered the season with big plans. The Las Vegas Raiders were a playoff team last year and hoped to make a return trip. Now 5-7, that’s looking unlikely, but the club has managed to rip off three straight wins. The defending champion Los Angeles Rams began the year with dreams of defending the crown. Instead, the 3-9 squad finds itself just trying to get through an injury-ravaged campaign. Which of the two teams will make a statement with the eyes of the league watching on TNF? Here are the latest Thursday Night Football betting odds for the Raiders vs. Rams in NFL Week 14, followed by a look at the rest of this year’s TNF schedule.
Thursday Night Football odds: Raiders vs. Rams lines
The Raiders were home as slight favorites over the Chargers on Sunday. A pair of Derek Carr to Davante Adams TDs in the third quarter gave them the lead and they never looked back in a 27-20 win. The Rams were home as 6.5-point underdogs to the Seahawks. They put up a fight and held a late lead, but the Seahawks came back to exit with a 27-23 victory.
- Point spread: Raiders , Rams
- Moneyline: Raiders , Rams
- Totals: Over/under
A 2-7 start seriously hampered the Raiders chances of getting back to the postseason. The team has managed to turn it around and win three in a row, but they still remain behind the pack in the AFC wild card chase. Since opening up at 2-1, it has been all downhill for the Rams. The injury-riddled club has managed just one win in its last nine outings.
Las Vegas is 6-6 against the spread and 6-5-1 on totals. Los Angeles has a 3-7-2 ATS record and is 5-7 on the over/under. This will be the first meeting of the two teams since 2018, a 33-13 road win for the Rams. For all-time meetings, the Raiders have a slight 8-6 advantage.

Other ways to bet on Thursday Night Football
As you dig deeper into the Thursday Night Football betting menu, you’ll find a host of other options. Here’s a look at some of the other top ways to bet on the first game of the NFL week.
- Single-game parlays: You can place multi-leg wagers just for the TNF game. For example, you could wager on the over/under on total points and a favorite prop or two. The odds will depend on the selections you add to the slip, and you must get all your picks right to win.
- In-game betting: You can wager in real-time as the TNF game plays out. Live betting opens as soon as the game kicks off and can keep going until the final whistle blows. You’ll see updated odds and offerings throughout the game, including options for spreads, totals, props, quarters and halves.

Thursday Night Football history/trends
Thursday Night Football became a regular part of the NFL schedule in 2006. Initially reserved for the latter part of the year, TNF has since expanded to become a staple of the weekly NFL slate.
The primetime game has shifted around broadcast outlets several times throughout its history. Amazon Prime is now the main home for TNF, but the Week 1 season opener and Thanksgiving night game will be on NBC.
Since 2006, all 32 teams have played multiple times on TNF. The San Francisco 49ers lead the way with 17 appearances through the end of the 2021 NFL season, while the Detroit Lions have appeared the fewest times with three.
Some squads have excelled under the bright TNF lights on an all-time basis. Here are the top five team records since 2006:
- Green Bay Packers: 9-2, .818
- Kansas City Chiefs: 9-3, .750
- New England Patriots: 9-3, .750
- Indianapolis Colts: 11-4, .733
- Seattle Seahawks: 8-3, .728
At the opposite end of the spectrum, a number of clubs have struggled so far on TNF:
- Carolina Panthers: 5-10, .333
- Buffalo Bills: 3-6, .333
- Detroit Lions: 1-2, .333
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 4-9, .308
- Arizona Cardinals: 4-10, .286
- Jacksonville Jaguars: 4-10, .286
Last season, 16 NFL games took place on Thursday night. Here’s how the trends and splits shook out for the season:
- Moneyline: Favorites 13-3
- Spreads: Favorites 9-7
- Totals: Over 5-11
- Home/away: Home 8-8
Thursday Night Football moneyline favorites had great success last season, but the results were closer to even on the spread. Last season’s slate trended toward the under, while it was a virtual coin flip for home teams. It’ll be interesting to see if these trends continue or shift for the 2022 Thursday Night Football schedule.
