Public Betting Information
Public bettors are backing the underdog in this matchup, as the Raiders are receiving 61% of the tickets wagered in this game.
OUR PREDICTION: The Raiders will make for one of the better 'over' bets all season. Their offensive will be explosive, from Derek Carr to Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, to an outstanding offensive line paving the way for newcomer Marshawn Lynch. Their defense will also struggle, even with Khalil Mack terrorizing quarterbacks. Oakland produced the fewest sacks in the NFL last season and the secondary will be an issue again. Marcus Mariota is a breakout candidate this season and the Titans have one of the best running games in all of football. Points shouldn't be an issue on Sunday.
