Oakland Raiders Betting

The Oakland Raiders were expected by linemakers at online sportsbooks to bring up the rear of the AFC West standings entering the regular season. Kansas City, Los Angeles and Denver were all expected to perform better when gauging the team’s respective success according to season win totals. After managing just four wins in the first year of Jon Gruden’s return to the Black Hole, it was understandable. Be that as it may, the Raiders went on to exceed expectations by winning seven games to surpass their 6-game total and make a run at the final playoff spot in the AFC. Though the team ultimately came up short in Week 17, things certainly look to be on the up and up with the franchise making the move to Sin City next season.

Season Recap

The 2019-20 season couldn’t have gotten out to a better start after the Raiders scored the Week 1 outright win and cover against the division rival Broncos. Rookie running back Josh Jacobs introduced himself to the nation by gouging Denver’s defense for 85 yards and a couple touchdowns on 23 overall carries. After dropping back-to-back games against what would end up being playoff teams in Kansas City and Minnesota, Oakland rattled off a pair of solid road wins defeating the Colts in Indianapolis and the Bears in London. It would then go on to drop two more games against playoff teams in the Packers and Texans before finally getting back home where it proceeded to rip off three straight wins against the Lions, Chargers and Bengals.

Oakland was in the thick of the AFC playoff chase by that point but ultimately wilted under the pressure by dropping each of its next four games to the Jets, Chiefs, Titans and Jaguars. The loss to Jacksonville proved costly since it allowed teams ahead of them in the wild-card standings to retake the upper hand. They kind of evened the playing field in Week 16 after going into Los Angeles and sweeping the season rivalry from the Chargers. The Raiders needed a ton of things to occur in Week 17 to punch a ticket to the playoffs. First and foremost, they needed to defeat the Broncos. Unfortunately, it didn’t come to pass after dropping a 16-15 decision after seeing their 2-point conversion attempt fall incomplete in the game’s final seconds.

After managing just four wins through 16 tries and logging just six pointspread covers the previous year, Oakland put a wrap on 2019-20 with 7-9 SU and 8-8 ATS records. They surpassed their expected season win total by a full game, and came up with some memorable wins along the way while splitting their six played games against divisional opponents. What this team has up its sleeve moving forward remains to be seen, but the future certainly looks bright with players like Jacobs, Darren Waller, Hunter Renfrow, Clelin Ferrell and Maxx Crosby looking like the cornerstones of the franchise for years to come. Be that as it may, there’s still a ton of improvement needed on both sides of the ball for the Raiders to start competing with the Chiefs and likely the Broncos for division supremacy in the coming years.

2020 Season Preview

First and foremost, Oakland needs to continue improving dramatically on the defensive side of the ball. While the unit didn’t look exactly like the sieve that took the field the previous season, it still gave up its fair share of yardage (No. 20) and points (No. 24). While the run defense proved to be one of the best in the league in allowing just over 98 yards per game (No. 8) and 3.9 yards per carry (No. 5), the pass defense was once again nothing short of a sick joke. Opposing quarterbacks ripped it to shreds to the tune of 257.9 yards (No. 25) and threw for an average of 2.1 touchdown passes per game. While the return of a healthy Jonathan Abram should help shore that deficiency up next season, you can’t help but think upper management will be targeting secondary help with it the owners of a pair of first round draft picks.

Derek Carr proved to be much improved in the second year under Gruden’s watch in playing to a career-high 100.8 QB rating and throwing for single digit interceptions (8) for only the second time in his six-year career. His success was the end result of Oakland’s offensive line being much improved in allowing just 29 sacks after getting exposed for 52 the previous season. Adding depth to this unit would only help benefit the offense and its young playmakers moving forward. Due to Antonio Brown being such a selfish diva, NFL bettors will never know just how good this offense could’ve been had he actually played the season out in Oakland.
