Raiders Season Odds

Marred in a decade of losing, the Oakland Raiders hope that things will finally come together in 2009 and at the very least, be competitive in the AFC West.

But NFL Futures Odds

The top priority of the Raiders was re-signing cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, which they were able to accomplish. They also re-signed punter Shane Lechler (a big deal for a team that figures to punt a lot) and also inked free agents Greg Ellis, Jeff Garcia, Khalif Barnes and Lorenzo Neal.

In the draft, Al Davis shocked NFL pundits by selecting wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey with the eighth overall pick, even though the highly talented Michael Crabtree was still on the board. Davis also surprised several draft enthusiasts in the second round when he selected safety Michael Mitchell, who wasn’t projected to go that high.

Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL have established the Raiders’ odds to win Super Bowl XLIV at 75/1. They’ve also given Oakland 30/1 odds to win the NFC and 11/1 odds to win the AFC West.

The Raiders are the Raiders – not much changes from year to year. It’s not that they lack talent, because they certainly have their fair share of intriguing players. But this team has always lacked direction unless quarterback JaMarcus Russell can grow in leaps and bounds from last season, this team is liable to struggle again this year. Again though, this team has plenty of talent (Asomugha, Russell, Darren McFadden, etc.) and maybe head coach Tom Cable can put it all together and make a winner out of Oakland. But that’s a stretch, even though the AFC West (outside of the San Diego Chargers) is expected to be a weak division again this season.
