The Oakland Raiders are coming off a disappointing divisional home loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Now, the Raiders will look to go across the country to get back on track versus the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Jaguars, meanwhile, have won two straight defeating the Indianapolis Colts a couple of weeks back in London and are coming off a road win over the Chicago Bears.
The Oakland Raiders are sitting at 4-2 at the moment and right in the thick of things in the AFC West. However, their defense is basically the worst in the NFL.
They have generated no pass rush, they aren’t the best tacklers and their secondary is giving up big play after big play time and time again.
Their defense is going to hold them back from truly being one of the better teams in the NFL. Based on DVOA, the Raiders have basically the worst defense in the NFL.
The Raiders are a bottom five defensive team overall and against the pass.
The funny thing about the Raiders this season is the fact that they have played exceptionally well on the road. At home, not so much.
On the road, the Raiders are 3-0 as they’ve defeated New Orleans and have gone across the country to defeat Tennessee and Baltimore in back-to-back weeks.
We’ll see if they can continue their magic on the road as they’ve got back-to-back games in Florida.
The Jacksonville Jaguars were a darling team to finally make that leap forward and actually compete and maybe even win the AFC South.
After the first three weeks it looked like the same old Jaguars as they lost their first three games. However, they went to London – their home away from home – and defeated the Indianapolis Colts.
They took a week off and went up to Chicago to defeat the Bears.
While the Jaguars still really haven’t defeated a good team yet, it is a step in the right direction as they beat the Colts and they defeated the Bears on the road. Now, we’ll see if the Jaguars can continue their momentum at home and defeat the Raiders.
If they do, it will be because of their ever improving defense. The Jaguars this year have only allowed over 300 yards of offense in three of their five games this season.
Also, based off DVOA the Jaguars have a top ten defense and are 7th best against the pass.
The Jaguars defense will be tested as the Raiders have one of the best offenses in the NFL. The Raiders are a top ten team in both rushing and passing.
NFL Betting Trends:
- Oakland is 3-0 ATS on the road this season
- Jacksonville is 3-0 ATS at home this season
- Jacksonville is 4-1 ATS this season
- Jacksonville is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against Oakland
4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Under 48.5
This isn’t exactly a best bet lock situation, but I do slightly like the Jaguars in this game and I slightly like the under in this game as well.
I think they are both in the same ball park, however, my best bet would be the under just because both offenses can be very inconsistent at times and because Jacksonville’s defense is finally showing some signs of life.
