NFL Betting Online Odds:
The Raiders step into this weekend’s matchup sporting a pitiful 1-6 record that ranks them as the worst team in the AFC West. On top of that, Oakland is coming off an embarrassing 42-28 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. While getting blown out by the likes of the Los Angeles Rams is understandable, there’s absolutely no reason to suffer a 14-point deficit against a 3-5 opponent. Nevertheless, Oakland will keep grudging forward to see if there’s anything Gruden can do to scrap this season. Ultimately Gruden’s stint with Oakland has just begun but already half the NFL media is giving the guy the stink eye. Likely because last year he was a part of the media and is now the sole reason that Oakland went from being a potential playoff candidate to the worst team in the division.
Players to Watch: Derek Carr (2,027 passing yards, 10 TD, 8 INT), Marshawn Lynch (376 rushing yards, 3 TD, 0 F), and Jared Cook (474 receiving yards, 3 TD, 36 REC).
San Francisco 49ers
The Niners step into this weekend’s matchup sporting a disappointing 1-7 record. The season has really gone downhill for San Fran since losing Jimmy Garoppolo to an injury early on. Although they came close to upsetting the Packers a few weeks ago, San Francisco wasn’t able to use that to build any momentum whatsoever. Testament to this is last Sunday’s 18-15 loss to the Cardinals – their second loss on the season to one of the worst teams in the NFL. Moving forward, San Francisco doesn’t have much to look forward to. Nevertheless, they can at the very least look forward to pounding Oakland in the last rendition of the Battle of the Bay this upcoming Thursday.
Players to Watch: CJ Beathard (1,252 passing yards, 8 TD, 7 INT), Matt Breida (487 rushing yards, 2 TD, 1 F), and George Kittle (584 receiving yards, 2 TD, 37 REC).
