Why Bet The Oakland Raiders To Beat Washington
The Raiders are in mid-season form after averaging 35.5 points per game and allowing just 18.0 through a pair of games. Their offense is as explosive as advertised and their defense has been better than expected. Oakland held the Titans and the Jets to 16 and 20 points respectively.
QB Derek Carr isn’t showing any signs of a season-ending broken leg from last year. He has completed 45 of 60 passes for 492 yards for 5 touchdowns and zero picks in two games. Carr ranks third in the league with a 126.5 passer rating (Cousins is 22nd at 82.9), and the Raiders have zero turnovers in two games.WR Micheal Crabtree has been his top target so far with 12 catches for 163 yards and a league-leading three TDs.
The Raiders are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 road games and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games in September.
Why Bet Washington To Beat the Raiders
Bad news for Washington is that their usual pass-heavy offense is out of sync. The good news is that their rush game isn’t. Last week, Washington put up 229 rush yards against the Rams, with three backs rushing for at least 67 yards.
QB Kirk Cousins was a pedestrian 18 of 27 for 179 yards and one touchdown last week. Through two weeks, Cousins is averaging 209.5 passing yards; he averaged 283.8 the past two seasons. His passer rating is 82.9; it was 99.3 the past two seasons.
He threw for 4,917 yards last season, the 15th-most prolific passing performance in NFL history. If Cousins can find the confidence in knowing that he has a history of playing better as the season progresses by the time this game kicks-off, then the Raiders are in trouble.
The Redskins are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games as a home underdog and 6-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
