Oakland Raiders – 2013 NFL Team Preview

Oakland Raiders – 2013 NFL Team Preview

2012-2013 Regular Season: 4-12 SU | 5-11

The Oakland Raiders have little to be proud of as far as last season is concerned after putting up a paltry 4-12 SU season and a slightly better 5-11 ATS record. The Raiders ended their season with back-to-back losses but somehow won 2 of their last 3 games against the spread. This coming season, the Raiders will have a new quarterback in Matt Flynn after shipping Carson Palmer to the Arizona Cardinals.

In the odds to win the AFC championship, the Raiders have a staggering price of +2,000 to top the AFC West. Hopefully for the Raiders, new acquisitions like Flynn and wide receiver Greg Jenkins can also help the Raiders surpass their 5-game line in the 2013 odds for regular season total wins odds. The Raiders join Jacksonville in representing the biggest 2014 Super Bowl odds pay day with a price at +15,000!

For the first game of the Raiders’ season, the team will take on the Indianapolis Colts who they have beaten in 2 of their 3 visits. A date with the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2 is followed by a tough assignment when the Raiders travel to Denver for Week 3. However, the Raiders appear to enjoy playing in thin air as they are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games in Denver.

Key NFL Betting matchups of 2013 NFL Season:

Week 3 @ Denver Broncos: the Raiders are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games in Denver.

Week 5 vs. San Diego Chargers: the Raiders are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games facing San Diego.

Oakland Raiders bettors should pay attention to:

– The Raiders’ strength of home schedule (.406) this coming season, which is the second weakest in the league.

– New quarterback Matt Flynn, who the Raiders got in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks and who was highly touted before being unseated by Russell Wilson.
