Raiders vs. Bills Total Pick

NFL Predictions: Will the Raiders and Bills go over 45.5? 10/27/17

Will the Oakland Raiders be limited on offense by the Buffalo Bills when the two teams meet up this Sunday at 1PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Buffalo is a slight favorite at home, as the Sabres are getting odds of -2.5 points against the Raiders. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 45.5 points. The home team has won six straight meetings in this series and the two have hit the over in their last five encounters. The public betting in this one has Oakland getting 67 percent of the wagers on the road. Sunday’s game takes place from New Era Field in Buffalo, New York and the game will air live on CBS.

Oakland is coming off a big 31-30 win over the Chiefs last week to snap a four-game losing streak. The Raiders are now 3-4 on the season and 4-3 with the under. They have hit the under in all three road games this year. Oakland’s offense has yet to hit its stride this season, putting up 22.1 points and 322.3 yards per contest. Derek Carr has thrown for 1,341 yards and 11 touchdowns with four interceptions. Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree have combined for 684 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. Marshawn Lynch is the leading rusher with 266 yards, but is suspended for this game. Defensively, Oakland is allowing 22.3 points and 370.7 yards per contest. They have yet to record an interception in 2017.

The Bills are coming off a 30-27 win over the Bucs at home last week to move to 4-2 on the season. Buffalo is also 4-2 with the under, but is 2-1 with the over at home. Buffalo is putting up just 19.8 points and 314 yards per game right now. Tyrod Taylor has thrown for just 1,178 yards and seven touchdowns while also rushing for 174 yards. LeSean McCoy is the leading rusher with only 370 yards and two scores. He is also the leading active receiver with 32 catches for 220 yards. Defensively, Buffalo is allowing just 16.8 points and 355.8 yards per game. Their pass defense is giving up 271.3 yards per contest. Micah Hyde is leading the defense with 25 tackles and four interceptions.

Bet on Raiders vs. Bills

Going against the Buffalo defense will be tough, but the Raiders seemed to finally find a spark on offense last week and I think it carries over this weekend. Buffalo has given up big yards through the air, so Carr should be able to deliver the ball to his array of receivers and put up some points. Buffalo should also find success against this Oakland defense that has given up big yardage. Buffalo has hit the over in 13 of its last 16 home games and the Raiders have hit the over in 19 of their last 27 games after a win.
