Bills vs. Raiders Pick
Will yet another over cash in a Raiders game when Oakland hosts the Bills at 4:05PM ET on Sunday?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Raiders are 3-point home favorites versus the Bills while the over/under currently sits at 49 points. While the point spread didn't move in this game, the total went from 50 down to 49.
The Bills won back-to-back games for the first time since mid-October, beating the Bengals and Jaguars, respectively, over the last two weeks. Their latest victory came against Jacksonville last Sunday at home, as the Bills beat the Jaguars 28-21 but failed to cover as an 8.5-point home favorite. Buffalo improved its record to 6-5 but remains three wins back of New England in the AFC East and one game back of the red-hot Dolphins. The Bills are also 5-6 at the betting window in 2016.
The Raiders have won five straight games to claim sole possession of first place in the AFC West. Their latest victory came against the Panthers last Sunday in Oakland, where the Raiders rallied from an 8-point deficit in the second half. Their 35-32 win runs their record to 9-2 on the year but after failing to cover as a 3.5-point favorite, their ATS mark is 7-4 on the year.
OUR PREDICTION: The over has cashed in nine of the Raiders' 11 games this season and in eight of the Bills' 11 games so there's no reason to think Sunday won't be high-scoring. The over is also 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams, is 18-6-2 in the Raiders' last 26 home games and is 6-1 in the Bills' last seven games overall. Oakland has proven it can score on any opponent and despite having several key offensive pieces go in and out of the lineup all year, Buffalo has shown a propensity of scoring at will at times, too.
