Oakland Raiders vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Preview

Las Vegas Raiders Preview (5-2):

Oakland still ranks last in the NFL in both total and passing defense, allowing averages of 430.4 and 302.1 yards per game, respectively. There is a possibility the club could receive help down the stretch in the form of linebacker Aldon Smith, who has applied for reinstatement with the league once his one-year suspension for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse expires on Nov. 17. Oakland possesses one of the league’s best receiving duos in Crabtree and Amari Cooper, who are first in receptions (79), third-down yards (375) and third-down conversions (22).
Last time out for Oakland, they were a 33-16 winner as they battled the Jaguars on the road. The Raiders covered in the match as a +2-point underdog, while 49 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

Team record: 5-2 SU,4-3 ATS
Oakland is 4-1 SU in its last 5 games
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Oakland’s last 7 games
Oakland is 5-0 ATS in its last 5 games on the road

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Preview (3-3):

Tampa Bay will be counting on Jacquizz Rodgers to shred Oakland’s rushing defense, which ranks 28th (128.3 yards), as the 26-year-old has gained 101 and a career-high 154 yards in the last two games while filling in for the injured Doug Martin. The Buccaneers hope to have Gerald McCoy in the lineup against the Raiders as the defensive tackle was limited in practice Thursday due to a calf injury that caused him to miss a game earlier this season. Evans is on pace for 1,459 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns, both of which would be franchise single-season records.
Tampa Bay won its last outing, a 34-17 result against the 49ers on October 23. The Buccaneers covered in that game as a +1-point underdog, while the 51 combined points took the game OVER the total.

Tampa Bay:
Team record: 3-3 SU,3-3 ATS
Tampa Bay is 3-7 ATS in its last 10 games
Tampa Bay is 3-7 SU in its last 10 games
The total has gone OVER in 6 of Tampa Bay’s last 9 games

Oakland Raiders vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Predictions:

The Raiders just are not getting the respect that they should and I am glad to see it. I am waiting here in Las Vegas for them to build the stadium but, in the mean time I can make a little money off of the Silver & Black (life long fan from the Bay Area). Taking the Raiders to win outright. I will also be looking at a prop bet to take the Las Vegas Raiders -3.5 points for a bump up in my $$$$.

Pick: Raiders +1 and Raiders -3.5 points on a prop bet
