This season, the Rams or Raiders are not really going to make it much further, but many sportsbook software services can see both teams are making good improvements as the season progresses.
In the last four games that they played, St. Louis and Oakland are 3-1 ATS. After their first season’s first win, the Raiders, who are 1-10, will take on the Rams, at 4-7, in St. Louis on Sunday.
The betting line opened with the Rams as the favorites by 6.5 points. 42 was the total.
Last Thursday, Oakland made sure that they wouldn’t be shamed even more in the league as they beat the Chiefs 24-20. The Raiders won the game SU as the underdogs at home by seven points for their season’s first win.
Even though this season the Raiders are only 1-10 SU, they’re also 6-5 ATS and 4-3 ATS since coach Tony Sparano took the place of Dennis Allen.
Early on, Oakland were leading Kansas City 14-0, and then fell back 20-17, but they were able to respond with a drive for 80 yards that came to an end with a TD pass by Derek Carr to James Jones with less than two minutes left to the game.
179 rushing yards were gained by the Raiders to the 96 by the Chiefs. This season, it only proved to be the second time that Kansas City could out-rush a team that they faced.
Two weeks back, St Louis suffered a huge loss to the Broncos with a very tough loss of 27-24 last week against the Chargers on the road, but were able to cover as the underdogs with five points.
Instead, the Rams were leading the Chargers 10-6 at the half, and were later able score with just a little over two minutes remaining in the meeting.
Through the last six weeks, the Rams beat the Broncos and the Seahawks – both of the Super Bowl teams last year, and were able to take out the 49ers. They also ended up out-rushing three out of the last four teams that they faced.
Many fans and sportsbook software services believe that the Raiders will most likely lose this game after they beat the Chiefs. The team is still 1-10, and this says a lot. Therefore, the smart thing to do would be to go for the Rams.
