Sharp bets in Vegas make Raiders 3-point favorites over Panthers

The Raiders were favored in only three games this year when the lines on their inaugural season in Las Vegas were first posted at the city’s sportsbooks.

In the biggest early line move of Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season, the Raiders are 3-point favorites over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday after the line opened at pick’em for the game in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Sharp money pushed the line to 3 on Sunday at William Hill, where Carolina opened as a 1½-point favorite, and the line moved to 3 (-120) on Monday at most Las Vegas books.

On Sept. 17, the retailer will tug open the curtain on its first stand-alone beauty store, H Beauty, at a shopping mall in Lakeside, Essex, England, while a second location is set to open in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England, next spring.

Harrods is promising a “wonderland” of premium and luxury brands, technology such as the Light Salon, an at-home LED light therapy system, and services such as the Dior Le Salon facials suite.
