Derek Carr Big Results Under Bright Lights
If you pull up his stat page, you will notice that Derek Carr has thrown for 4,000 yards in three consecutive seasons and appears well on his way to a fourth.
Eventually, you will stumble onto his 52-66 (44%) all-time record, which is probably the reason he is rarely considered a Top-Tier quarterback.
What you won’t find on the Derek Carr bio page is that this guy flat out excels in Prime Time football games when playing on home turf.
This Sunday, Carr and his Raiders host the Kansas City Chiefs, who have some interesting ATS stats of their own.
Las Vegas is +2.5 underdogs at home and if you believe history is set to repeat itself, then all your chips should be pushed into the middle on the Raiders plus the points. (Well, maybe not all of them…)
Derek Carr Doesn’t Lose At Home In Prime Time
Over his last 10 Prime Time games on home field, Carr is an impressive 8-1-1 ATS and 7-0 ATS in his last seven games.

In fact, Carr and the Raiders are 6-4 straight under the bright lights, despite being underdogs in all 10 games.
