Raiders' 2014 Win Total Odds

Oakland Raiders NFL betting odds trends totals

LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - With a new quarterback and adjustments to the defense, will the Raiders win more than five games this season?

The Raiders were active in free agency, signing running back Maurice Jones-Drew to share carries with Darren McFadden, who was re-signed to a new deal. The team also added cornerbacks Carlos Rogers and Tarell Brown, both of whom should start. Justin Tuck, Antonio Smith and LaMarr Woodley were added to boost the front seven while Austin Howard and Donald Penn were signed to fill holes along the offensive line. GM Reggie McKenzie also traded for former Texans quarterback Matt Schaub.

The question is whether or not the Raiders got better. While they did make plenty of additions in the offseason, Oakland also lost a handful of starters to other teams. Jared Veldheer left for Arizona, Lamarr Houston signed with the Bears and Rashad Jennings bolted to New York. The Raiders also parted ways with Vance Walker, Tracy Porter and Mike Jenkins.

In the draft the Raiders used the fifth overall pick on Buffalo pass rusher Khalil Mack and selected their quarterback of the future in Fresno State's Derek Carr. They also used a third-round pick on Mississippi State guard Gabe Jackson and fourth round selections on defensive tackle Justin Ellis of L.A. Tech and Utah cornerback Keith McGill.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Raiders' regular season win total for 2014 has been set at over/under 5 games and I'd lean towards the under. As previously mentioned, this team made a lot of moves in the offseason but did they improve themselves? Mack was a savvy selection in the first round but losing Houston hurt and while Oakland tried to re-sign Veldheer, his decision to leave hurt as well.

The schedule is also brutal, with the Broncos, Chiefs and Chargers all coming off playoff appearances a year ago. And if Schaub doesn't find the fountain of youth, then the coaching staff is likely to turn to Carr as soon as the veteran struggles. It's unlikely that there's six wins on this Oakland schedule.
