Raiders vs Jaguars National Football League Week 7 Handicapping

Oakland Raiders: Still in the hunt in weak AFC West

Although they sit at 1-4 on the season, the Oakland Raiders are coming off their best performance (in a loss) of the year. Back in action after their bye week, the Raiders gave the now 6-0 Atlanta Falcons all they could handle but came out on the short end of a 23-20 decision in Week 5. Atlanta hit a 55 yard field goal, with one tick left in the clock, to stay perfect. Ball-hawking defense was the name of the game for Oakland on the road last Sunday.

Jacksonville Jaguars: Misery continues for the North Beach Cats

While we had to do some digging to come up with this free pick, it’s a selection that’s more about what the Jaguars are not, than what the Raiders are. Though they have won or covered in their last three roadies, the Jags are 2-11 straight up on the road dating back to the NFL 2011 season. The Jaguars D ranks 23rd vs. the pass and 30th vs. the run. RB Darren McFadden, who is overdue to bust out with a monster game, is next up for the Florida kittens.

Raiders vs. Jaguars Online Sports Betting NFL Week 7 Prediction

Oakland picked off Falcons QB Matt Ryan three times last weekend. Ryan had thrown three total INT in his previous five starts. QB Carson Palmer is starting to get comfortable in the Raiders offense and that’s not good news for a Jaguars defense that is giving up 27.6 points per game. A decent outing from the Raiders defense get’s the job done here. Give us the Black & Silver with the -220 money line in the online Sportsbook.
