Team Outlook and Scouting Report

LONG TERM OUTLOOK: TRENDING DOWN

Before the season, the Raiders were projected to win 6.4 games (average per simulation) but it does not look like they are going to reach that. On 9/1 their projected win total was up to 6.4 before dropping to 2.5 on 11/12. From the start of the season to now their projected win total is down significantly to 2.5 wins. Before the start of their 5 game losing streak they were projected for 5.3 wins.

SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: F

Early in the season, we include last season in the analysis. With a 1-8 record, the Raiders are falling well short of their money line projected win total of 3 wins. They have 2 bad losses (they were favored or got blown out as slight underdogs) vs 0 good wins (upset wins, or blowout victory in what was expected to be a close game). They have been below expectations on the road and at home. Their 0-4 road record is -40% lower than expected. Their 1-4 home record is -16% lower. Losers of 5 in a row they have a 49% chance of seeing that extend to 7 straight. Raiders fans have to be disappointed that they have fallen well short of their pre-season expectations where they were #0 in the league in power ranking. In simulations where the Raiders played every other team (neutral court in playoffs) they won just 26.3% of the time (#32 in the league). In our pre-season simulations they were ranked #0 winning 48%.

They are a very poor scoring team based on points per game, despite having a much better yards per play rank. They are a very poor scoring defense based on points per game and a below average defensive TD rate.
