Road Warrior Raiders Visit Fast-improving Buccaneers

Michael Crabtree Raiders

The Oakland Raiders will be aiming to improve to a perfect 5-0 straight up on the road this season, when they visit Tampa Bay on Sunday afternoon for an NFL Week 8 matchup with the surging Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.

  • The Buccaneers are 0-9 SU and 1-7-1 ATS in their last nine games with a closing total of 49.0 or more.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Buccaneers' last eight games against the AFC West division.
  • The Raiders are 4-16 SU in their last 20 games after a win.

Oakland tightened its grip on first place in the hotly contested AFC West with a decisive 33-16 victory in Jacksonville last weekend. The Raiders covered a 2-point spread against the Jaguars in their third outright win of the season as road underdogs, and are now undefeated against the spread in their past seven away contests.

The Buccaneers return home on a high after recording a pair of road victories as betting underdogs, knocking off Carolina and San Francisco. Tampa Bay is winless SU and ATS in its past four on home turf, surrendering an average of 28.5 ppg, and is just 2-3 SU and ATS in the past five when pegged as home favorites by three or fewer points.

Tampa Bay is 2-1 SU and ATS in its past three home dates with Oakland, and claimed a 42-32 win as 1-point underdogs the last time these teams met four years ago. But the Buccaneers have failed to record consecutive wins over the Raiders in eight all-time matchups.
