Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Raiders are 2.5-point favorites to beat the Raiders. The total, meanwhile, sits at 48.5 points. As of this writing, 60% of the public betting tickets are on the Seahawks to cover the point spread.

Seattle Seahawks

Russell Wilson (hamstring) is practicing in full for Week 6 against the Raiders. Traditionally known as one of the league's more mobile quarterbacks, Wilson has mostly avoided running the year, logging just 11 carries over his first five games. That will probably remain the case as he continues to work through hamstring issues. Wilson will be a borderline QB1 against the Raiders in Week 6. That game will be played at Wembley Stadium in London.

Oakland Raiders

Marshawn Lynch (hip) was limited at Wednesday's practice. It's a new injury for Lynch. The Raiders like to manage his practice reps, so this isn't a Week 6 concern. Lynch is an RB2 for Sunday's matchup with Seattle.

NFL Betting Trends

Seattle

The under is 5-2 in the Seahawks’ last seven games coming off a loss.

Oakland

The over is 13-5 in the last 18 meetings between these two teams.

Prediction

Long gone are the days where you could count on a stout defensive performance from the Seahawks. Without Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman and some of the other pieces that led them to back-to-back Super Bowls, this Seattle defense is a shell of its former self. Meanwhile, the Raiders could use Khalil Mack because they can’t generate any pressure, which is problematic since they’ll face the mobile Russell Wilson on Sunday. I like the over.
