New England vs Oakland Betting Preview

One year after battling the New England Patriots for the best record in the AFC, the Oakland Raiders are trying to stay alive in the playoff race. The New England Patriots (7-2) quarterback Tom Brady earned his second AFC Offensive Player of the Week award after throwing for 266 yards and three scores in the rout at Denver. He has 19 touchdowns and just two interceptions, with a league-high 2,807 yards.Tight end Rob Gronkowski has five touchdown catches and at least one reception of 22 yards in seven straight games. There are plenty of catches to go around as Brandin Cooks has 26 catches during the five-game winning streak. New England tends to rotate it’s running backs but Dion Lewis appears to have taken the lead role with double-digit carries in each of the past four games. The biggest change over the winning streak has been the defense that has not allowed more than 17 points in the those five games. The Oakland or Las Vegas Raiders (4-5) have suddenly found a little offense with quarterback Derek Carr throwing for 1,030 yards with five touchdowns and three interceptions over the last three games. Marshawn Lynch returned from a one-game suspension to rush for 57 yards and two TDs in a 27-24 win at Miami. Amari Cooper has been a disappointment this season but does have 38 targets over the last three games, resulting in 20 receptions for 314 yards. What has really gone wrong for the Raiders is the defense. They have some of the worst linebackers against the pass in the league and the safeties look like statues on deep passes. Add to that that the Raiders are tied for last in sacks (13) and have yet to record an interception. Even if the offense was rolling this defense would hold them back.

New England Patriots vs Oakland Raiders Betting Prediction:

The Raiders desperately need a win here. However, the reason they need this win so bad is they aren’t that good. Last year everything went right for this team and this year things are evening out. The Raiders defense will get shredded by the Patriots tight ends and the Raiders secondary will not be able to standup for long with the lack of pass rush on Oakland. On the other side the Patriots defense has shown notable improvement.
