Jets vs. Raiders Prediction
Following their second loss of the season to division rival New England last week, the Jets hit the road this weekend to take on the Raiders at 4:05PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Raiders are a 3-point home underdog versus the Jets after the game opened as a pick'em early in the week. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 43.5 points.
New York is 4-2 overall and 4-1-1 against the spread, while Oakland is 3-3 straight up and 3-3 at the betting window. The Jets lost to the Patriots 30-23 as a 7-point underdog last Sunday, while the Raiders blew out the Chargers as a 5.5-point road underdog in San Diego.
This is a tough spot for the Jets, who simply ran out of gas after hanging with the Patriots for three quarters last week. Now they have to travel for the second straight week and are taking on an Oakland team that is chockfull of confidence after beating the Chargers. The Jets are just 1-3-1 against the spread in their last five trips to Oakland and the favorite is 6-2-1 against the number in the last nine meetings between these two teams. Look for Derek Carr and the Raider offense to put together another solid performance against a Jets team that could find it difficult to get up for this one after losing to the Pats last Sunday.
