The Seahawks fly into this weekend’s matchup sporting a 2-3 record that ranks them as the 2nd best team in the NFC West. Considering that the division is currently led by the 5-0 Rams, it’s pretty clear that Seattle is already too far behind in the divisional race. Furthermore, we haven’t seen much out of Seattle to suggest that they’ll be able to make up that ground later on in the season, especially since they’re coming off a 33-31 loss to Los Angeles at home. So does this mean that Seattle will come out on the losing end of things this weekend? Although the Seahawks haven’t had much luck against Oakland as of late, posting a 5-5 record against the Raiders in their last 10, NFL sports betting players should stick with Seattle here. The reason being that the Oakland Raiders have been an absolute mess this season. Right now Oakland is giving up 400 plus yards per game, nearly 30 points per game, and their offense isn’t even averaging 22 per game.
Players to Watch: Russell Wilson (1,086 passing yards, 10 TD, 3 INT), Chris Carson (293 rushing yards, 1 TD, 1 F), and Tyler Lockett (347 receiving yards, 4 TD, 20 REC).
The Raiders charge into this weekend’s action flashing a 1-4 record that pegs them as the worst team in the division. Like the NFC West, the AFC West is also heralded by an undefeated 5-0 team. Considering Oakland has struggled severely against every opponent they’ve faced – the opposite of which can be said about the AFC West leading Kansas City Chiefs, it’s pretty clear that Oakland will not be competing for a playoff spot in 2018. Ultimately the decision to bring Jon Gruden aboard will be questioned severely.
Players to Watch: Derek Carr (1,641 passing yards, 7 TD, 8 INT), Marshawn Lynch (331 rushing yards, 3 TD, 0 F), and Jared Cook (390 receiving yards, 2 TD, 30 REC).
