Raiders are Quietly a Fantastic Bet This Year

The Oakland Raiders (8-2) continue to prove the critics wrong in 2016, but the bad news is opponents in their division are doing the same thing. Oakland will look to separate itself from Denver and Kansas City in Week 12 against the Carolina Panthers (4-6).

Shark Bites

  • The Raiders are 7-23 ATS in their last 30 games as a favorite of 4.0 or less.
  • The Panthers are 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 games as an underdog of 4.0 or more.

Favorites are cashing at a rapid clip when these teams collide, evidenced by chalk going 4-1 SU and ATS in the last five matchups between the squads.

Dating back the last few years, the Panthers have been a fantastic OVER bet when they play away from Bank of America Stadium. The OVER has gone 15-5 in Carolina’s last 20 road tilts.

Cam Newton and company have yet to cover the spread away from Charlotte, going 0-3 ATS in three road appearances on the year.

Oakland now sits in the top spot of the AFC in the wake of a 27-20 triumph over Houston in Mexico. The Raiders are well on their way to reaching the postseason for the first time since 2002, and they’re already a profitable wager at 7-3 ATS on the year. Tailing Oakland for the remaining weeks of the NFL season looks like a solid idea.
