As the midpoint of the NFL season approaches, certain storylines are starting to take form. The Oakland Raiders are one of them, as this is clearly a different team from the underperforming squads of the last 10 years. Led by standout sophomore QB Derek Carr, the Raiders topped San Diego 37-29 in Week 7 and improved to 3-3 SU, good enough for sole possession of second place in the NFC West.
- The home team is 9-2 SU in the last 11 games in this matchup.
- The Raiders are 1-10 SU and ATS in their last 11 games after winning as an underdog.
- The Jets are 6-14 SU in their last 20 games on the road.
The Jets, who are set to enter the Black Hole in Week 8, are no slouch either. New York gave New England everything they had last week but came up just short in a 30-23 loss. The Jets have raised some eyebrows this year by ranking second in total defense and eighth in the league in total offense. New York is also performing well at the betting window, going 4-1-1 ATS in their first six games.
