8:17 p.m.: FINAL: Rams 17, Raiders 16. The Raiders allowed the Rams to hang around and faltered in the fourth quarter as Baker Mayfield led the 6-point underdog to the upset. The game stayed under the total of 41½.
8:14 p.m.: It’s good, and the Rams lead the Raiders 17-16. What a collapse in the fourth quarter by the Silver and Black.
8:13 p.m.: Incredible. Baker Mayfield marches the Rams 93 yards and hits Van Jefferson for the tying score with 9 seconds remaining. Matt Gay is on for the extra point.
8:07 p.m.: A.J. Cole uncorks a 64-yard punt and the Rams take over at their own 5-yard line. The Raiders are -1800 on the live line (Rams +900).
8:05 p.m.: Josh Jacobs goes over 93½ rushing yards despite the hand injury. But the Raiders are facing a fourth-and-1 at the 2-minute warning.
7:59 p.m.: Cam Akers squeezes into the end zone for the Rams, and the Raiders’ lead is down to 16-10 with 3:19 left. That was a 17-play, 75-yard drive that chewed up more than 9 minutes. The Raiders are -1400 on the live line (Rams +800).
7:58 p.m.: Depending on your number, the backdoor cover is very much in play here.
7:42 p.m.: Bad penalty by the Raiders to extend the Rams drive.
7:36 p.m.: Daniel Carlson hits his third FG of the game and the Raiders lead the Rams 16-3 with 12:20 left in the fourth quarter. Carlson 7½ kicking points (over -120) is in.
7:35 p.m.: Where would the Raiders be without Josh Jacobs this season? Certainly not 5-7.
7:28 p.m.: END OF THE THIRD QUARTER. Raiders 13, Rams 3. The Raiders are -3000 on the live line (Rams +1200), total 28½.
7:25 p.m.: Josh Jacobs has returned for the Raiders.
7:23 p.m.: Tough one if you have Matt Gay over 5½ kicking points. The unsportsmanlike conduct penalty pushed back the Rams and he pulls the 61-yard field goal wide left. The Raiders lead the Rams 13-3 with 2:42 left in the third quarter. The Raiders are -1800 on the live line (Rams +900), total 29½.
7:12 p.m.: Josh Jacobs is questionable to return.

6:38 p.m.: Second-half line: Rams -½, total 21.
6:37 p.m.: That late Derek Carr helped ensure there no score in the final two minutes of the first half prop cashed (+250).

6:32 p.m.: HALFTIME: Raiders 13, Rams 3. First-half winners: Raiders -3, under 20½. Josh Jacobs has the game’s lone TD, and Daniel Carlson booted two field goals to help the Raiders cover. The Rams offense has struggled with Baker Mayfield getting the majority of snaps at quarterback.
6:28 p.m.: Derek Carr gets bumped off his spot as he’s letting go of the ball, and it floats into the end zone for a drive-killing interception. Carr was -120 to throw a pick. The Raiders lead 13-3 late in the second quarter. The Raiders are -700 on the live line (Rams +475), total 37½.
6:13 p.m.: Cam Akers puts the ball on the turf and the Raiders defense comes up with it. Still 13-3 Raiders with 4:45 left until halftime. The Raiders are -800 on the live line (Rams +525), total 40½.

5:47 p.m.: Baker Mayfield into the game at quarterback for the Rams. The Raiders are -600 on the live line (Rams +420), total 44½.
