Oakland end skid

The Oakland Raiders put an end to a five-game losing streak last week with a 23-21 win at Arizona. Oakland is now 2-8 overall, 3-7 against the spread and 6-4 with the under. The Raiders have hit the under in four of their last six games.

Oakland’s offense is averaging just 17 points and 347.2 yards per game this year. Their scoring average ranks 30th in the NFL right now. Derek Carr is leading the offense with 2,633 yards and 12 touchdowns, but also has eight interceptions and has been sacked 32 times. Jared Cook is the leading receiver with 45 catches for 577 yards and four touchdowns. Marshawn Lynch is still the leading rusher with 376 yards despite being out for a while with a groin injury. Defensively, Oakland is giving up 29.3 points and 387.4 yards per game this year. Their run defense ranks 31st in the league, allowing 142.3 yards per game.

Ravens win without Flacco

The Baltimore Ravens put an end to their three-game losing streak last week when they beat the Cincinnati Bengals, 24-21, behind rookie QB Lamar Jackson. The Ravens are now 5-5 on the season, 4-6 against the spread and 6-4 with the under. Baltimore has hit the over in two of its last three games.

With Joe Flacco out with a hip injury last week, Jackson put up 150 passing yards and 119 rushing yards in his first career NFL start. Jackson is likely to start again this weekend as Flacco is doubtful to return. On the year, Baltimore averages 23.7 points and 370.2 yards per game on offense. Alex Collins is the leading rusher on the team with 411 yards and seven touchdowns while John Brown is the leading receiver with 35 catches for 624 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Baltimore ranks first in the NFL in points allowed (18.1 ppg) and yards allowed (300 ypg). They have 29 sacks as a unit this year.

NFL Betting Trends

Oakland

The Raiders are 13-4 with the under in their last 17 games overall and 6-2 with the under in their last eight road games.

Baltimore

The Ravens are 7-2 with the under in their last nine games in November and 5-1 with the under in their last six conference games.

Prediction:

This looks like a terrible matchup for the Raiders. Oakland has struggled to move the ball and protect Carr and will now go on the road to face the league’s best defense. Jackson should continue to run the ball well from the QB position against Oakland, but that means Baltimore will likely have longer possessions to score. I expect this game to be quite low-scoring as the Ravens control the tempo and flow throughout.
