Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

There are 3 teams who have 40/1, 2.4% odds to win the Super Bowl. While not completely impossible, their chances of winning the Super Bowl is under 0.1 percent. They are not a good value to win the AFC either at 20/1, 4.8%. The Raiders are averaging 5.3 wins per sim so we recommend betting them to come under 6 wins. At +500 the Raiders are not a good value to make the playoffs with a 2.9% chance. They have less than 1% chance to win the division. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #15 in the AFC.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

Oddsmakers had low expectations for them last season (expected win percentage = 32%) and they failed to live up to even these low expectations going 4-12. They were not good against the spread going 6-10 (-500 loss). More of their games came in under (9) than went over (6). Their next game vs the Broncos should be close. The Raiders are winning 48 percent of computer simulations. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).

TEAM OFFENSIVE AND DEFENSIVE STATS WITH LEAGUE RANKINGS
