Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Las Vegas Raiders at Canton, Ohio (8 p.m. ET Thursday, NBC)

Point spread: Raiders -1.5 (Raiders favored to win by more than 1.5 points, otherwise Jaguars cover)
Moneyline: Raiders -118 favorite to win (bet $10 to win $18.47 total); Jaguars +100 underdog to win (bet $10 to win $20 total)
Total scoring over/under: 32.5 points scored by both teams combined

NBC NFL Jacksonville Jaguars JAX Las Vegas Raiders LV Deebo Samuel and the San Francisco 49ers have reportedly agreed on a three-year extension that has a value of over $73 million with $58 million of it guaranteed. It means that San Francisco will hold on to what is arguably their most productive offensive player as they transition to having Trey Lance at quarterback. On a scale of 1-10, Skip Bayless reveals why he believes the 49ers are a threat to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC West despite Lance's inexperience.

AP Bet trader Daniel Montanari said analyzing the HOF game is more difficult because it is unlikely starting quarterbacks Trevor Lawrence of the Jaguars and Derek Carr of the Raiders will play.

"Tough one here to dig into the weeds without knowing player lineups," Montanari said. "Lamar Jackson is the last starting QB to play in the game back in 2018. We don't expect Derek Carr or Trevor Lawrence to play along with other starters in this matchup. This game represents more of an opportunity for fringe players hoping to play their way onto the 53-man roster.

"Hall of Fame games tend to be low-scoring affairs with games averaging just over 29 total points in the last 10 games. I like the under 32.5 total points with teams playing fringe players."

PICK: Under 32.5 points (at AP Bet) scored by both teams combined
