TV Broadcast: ESPN
Betting on the Green Bay Packers (1-1)
With Aaron Rodgers sitting out, the Packers fell to the Baltimore Ravens on the road in Week 2 of the preseason, 26-13. The Packers instead leaned heavily on the arms of DeShone Kizer and Tim Boyle for their passing attack. Boyle had the biggest workload, going 12 of 21 for 107 passing yards and a touchdown. Green Bay’s backfield was nothing to write home about either, compiling just a total of 55 rushing yards on 18 carries. The Packers could have more success on the ground though against the Raiders, who allowed 115 rushing yards to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2. Meanwhile, don’t expect to see any more cameos from tight end Jimmy Graham after the veteran reportedly injured his finger in practice.
The Packers are 6-3-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last 10 preseason games.
Betting on the Oakland Raiders (2-0)
The Raiders’ offense exploded last week, as they pummeled the Cardinals’ defense on their way to a 33-26 road victory. Mike Glennon was on top of his game, completing 11 of 14 passes for 175 passing yards and two touchdowns with zero interceptions. Nathan Peterman continues his bounce-back tour with a perfect 8-for-8 game for 41 passing yards, while Derek Carr had a brief appearance, throwing two complete passes, with one ending in a touchdown score. Oakland’s passing game has been dangerous so far in the preseason, ranking eighth in the league with 254.0 passing yards per contest. Oakland’s offensive line has allowed only two sacks. It should handle the pressure well that’s going to be brought by the Packers’ pass rush that only has three sacks to date in the preseason.
The Raiders are 4-0 ATS in their last four preseason games.
The Raiders win, 23-21.
