dime bet – 262 TEN 2.0 (-110) vs 261 OAK
Analysis: Ughh, The Raiders. They are a decent team and certainly one of the most improved this season versus last – or the last decade for that matter – but I can’t buy them continually being installed as road favorites. They have been twice already this year, including last week at Detroit, and lost both SU. In fact, they have been favored four times this season in total – and lost on each occasion SU.
Oakland has also been victim of the scheduling bug as this will be their 5th early game start in the Eastern Time Zone this season, their second in a row, and their 3rd in the last 4-weeks. That’s tough. I am not always a huge buyer on the West Coast team going East deal but it has historically been a real problem for The Raiders.. and now you give a team that typically struggles with it, 5-trips in one season? That catches up with you no matter what.
And while The Raiders have been in a lull lately.. their rushing defense has gotten worse, Amari Cooper hasn’t been as hot, their running game has been absent the past couple of weeks.. The Titans, despite being 1-and-2 under Milarkey, are playing much better. They beat The Saints, played Carolina really tough in the first half, and should have beaten Jacksonville, on the road, if it wasn’t for a couple of awful decisions by Milarkey himself. And speaking of that game against The Jaguars, that was last Thursday, so while Oakland has been bouncing back and forth all over the country, Tennessee is coming off of a week with additional rest.
Finally, The Raiders check in with an 0-and-8 SU mark and 0-7-and-1 ATS record when they are off of a SU loss as a favorite and are now playing a losing team.
My math has Tennessee winning this game by 5-points. Sounds good to me.
