NFL Underdog Pick Week 8|
October 28th 2017 -
Oakland Raiders (+2.5) at Buffalo Bills
Last week was a must win game for the Da Raiders against the Chiefs. The Raiders
kept their playoff aspirations alive by scoring a TD with no time left on the
clock. Now, one could consider the Bills game a letdown game after winning such
a hard fought divisional game but the Raiders played on a Thursday and had some
extra time off to prepare for the Bills. The biggest edge in this football game
that I see is with the Raiders offense. The Raiders have a much better receiving
core and more weapons than the Bills. Yes, I understand that you are concerned
about Lynch being suspended but I think the duo of Richard and Washington will
fill in nicely and are a better fit for the Raiders offense than Lynch. They are
both better than Lynch at catching passes out of the backfield.
Don't get me wrong, Buffalo is a really tough place to win. The Bills have won
11 of their last 15 games at home. However, the Raiders are 5-0 ATS in their
last 5 meetings and are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Buffalo.
Not to mention Carr is 9-3 SU in last 12 road games.
This will probably be one of the best games to watch on Sunday. Late game
heroics are becoming second nature to Derek Carr and I expect the Raiders to
pull off another magical win on Sunday.
