Betting on the Oakland Raiders (3-2)
The Raiders had a much-deserved rest in Week 6 following their 24-21 upset win across the pond in London over the Chicago Bears in Week 5. Prior to that, the Raiders also shocked the Indianapolis Colts in a 31-24 road win in Week 5. It’s fair to say that the Raiders are not running on fumes but rather on a mix of confidence and momentum. Rookie running back Josh Jacobs is succeeding in his role despite a heavy workload. Against the Bears, he had 123 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries, but he’s going to need help from the passing attack to keep defenses from ganging up on him. Speaking of which, the Raiders traded with the Buffalo Bills for wide receiver Zay Jones after their win over the Bears. Jones is expected to line up across Tyrell Williams and help the Raiders’ passing attack that’s 24th in the NFL with 213.8 passing yards per game.
The Raiders are 2-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last two games.
Betting on the Green Bay Packers (5-1)
The Detroit Lions gave the Packers a tough challenge, but in the end, Aaron Rodgers and company were just too much for them. Green Bay defeated the Lions, 23-22, at home in Week 6, with Rodgers passing for 283 yards and two touchdowns. He got picked once, though, it wasn’t entirely his fault, as the target of his pass failed to hold on the ball. The Packers had three turnovers in the Detroit game, and it’s not going to be always that they win games with that many errors. They will have to be cleaner in their attacks and more careful with the ball, especially running back Aaron Jones, who followed up his explosive performance in a Week 5 win over the Dallas Cowboys with a letdown one last Sunday, dropping passes and coming up with a lost fumble.
The Packers, who are averaging 23.7 points per game, are 4-2 ATS in their last six games.
The Packers win, 28-21.
