Oakland vs Jacksonville Preview

Oakland Raiders (4-2):

The trio of Derek Carr, Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper continue to carry Oakland offensively. The quarterback enters Week 7 tied for fifth in the NFL with 12 touchdown passes and has thrown only three interceptions – a league-low among signal-callers with at least 225 passing attempts, Crabtree shares the league lead with five receiving TDs and Cooper is averaging 16.3 yards per catch while ranking fourth with 585 overall. The team’s problems have been on the other side of the ball, as it ranks last in total defense (444.8 yards allowed) and 24th in scoring defense (27.2 points).

Oakland lost its last outing, a 26-10 result against the Chiefs on October 16. The Raiders failed to cover in that game as a +2-point underdog, while the 36 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

Robinson has made 15 touchdown catches in his last 17 games and 10 in his last 10 contests at home. Jacksonville has taken a step backward in the scoring department, entering Week 7 ranked 21st (20.2 points) after finishing 14th (23.5) in the league last season.

Oakland Raiders vs Jacksonville Jaguars Predictions

The Raiders got beat by Kansas City last week as the Chiefs shutdown the Raiders high powered offense. This week they play Jacksonville as a pick game. Don’t overreact to last weeks game. The Raiders have always had trouble with their division rival. This week the Raiders get back on the winning side of the ball. I would take the Raiders up to -3 in this game. So, take the Raiders before the line goes up. Yes, this is a cheesy Oakland reference…..hammer time!!!!

Raiders vs Jaguars Pick: Raiders +1
