49ers vs. Raiders Spread Prediction

San Francisco 49ers vs. Oakland Raiders, 11/1/18 Week 9 Predictions

The 1-7 San Francisco 49ers are laying nearly a field goal at home to the 1-6 Oakland Raiders tonight for Thursday Night Football. Are the Niners a good bet to cover that number or will the Raiders pick up their second win of the season?

Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the 49ers are 2.5-point favorites to beat the Raiders. The total, meanwhile, sits at 45.5 points. As of this writing, 58% of the public betting tickets are on the Raiders to cover the point spread.

Oakland Raiders

Raiders LG Kelechi Osemele (knee) was limited at practice on Tuesday. Osemele, who was a DNP in Monday's estimated injury report, is finally inching closer to returning after getting in limited reps two days before the Raiders Week 9 game against the 49ers. It's been a longer than expected rehab, and Osemele is still questionable ahead of Thursday night. Jon Feliciano will continue to draw starts for as long as Osemele is sidelined.

San Francisco 49ers

The Athletic's Matt Barrows expects C.J. Beathard (questionable, wrist) to play in Week 9 against the Raiders. Coach Kyle Shanahan called Beathard a game-time decision. Beathard was limited in the 49ers' walkthrough on Wednesday, putting him on track to play despite the short week. The 49ers would be forced to start Nick Mullens if Beathard sits.

NFL Betting Trends

Oakland

The Raiders are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games overall.

San Francisco

The 49ers are 1-5 against the number in their last six home games.

Prediction

It’s somewhat surprising to see that Beathard could play tonight considering there was a report on Tuesday that indicated the QB was struggling to grip a ball due to his wrist injury. If he plays, he could be limited. If he doesn’t play, then Nick Mullens will start. Either way, the Raiders offer some value from a betting standpoint. They’re a mess too the Niners shouldn’t be favored against anyone right now so this is a principle play for me.

Thursday Night Football Total Prediction: Oakland Raiders +2.5
