The Raiders Have Been Money on the Road

If you had the Raiders pegged as a candidate for regression this season, you were dead wrong. At 2-0 SU and ATS, the silver and black have outscored opponents 71-36 and will look to beat up on another opponent Sunday night in Washington as the betting favorite. Betting the Raiders on the road has been a very profitable spot going back to the 2015 season, as they’ve rattled off a 10-3 ATS record in their last 13 road games.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in 18 of the Raiders’ last 23 games after a win.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 10 of the Redskins’ last 11 games when hosting a West Coast team.
  • Kirk Cousins has thrown for 300 or more yards in four of his last five games after a win.

While the Raiders are solidifying themselves as a serious contender, the Redskins are anything but a prime-time player and their record in night games proves it. They’ve gone 3-11 SU and ATS in their last 14 prime-time games which is a fair indicator that they struggle when the pressure gets turned up. One thing Skins’ backers can count on, however, is their team’s ability to cover as a dog, as they’re on a run which has seen them go 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games when getting points.

If you’re picking against the Raiders, don’t let the cross-country road trip be a reason to fade them. They’ve gone 7-2 ATS in their last nine trips to the East Coast and haven’t had any issues putting up points on the right coast as they’ve gone OVER in three straight East Coast games.

Lots of scoring is expected with the game having the biggest total on the Week 3 board — 54 points. It’s a small sample size, but Oakland leads the league in points per game so far this season at 35.5 points, while the Skins defense has been one of the worst in the league, allowing 25 points per game.
