Best Oakland Raiders Betting Sites

Sometime in the near future the Oakland Raiders should be more serious betting plays. They won seven games during the 2015 campaign and have a dynamic duo in Amari Cooper and Derek Carr around which they can build moving forward. That is not a license to bet liberally on them now. They still have a ways to go. Especially on the defensive end. They ranked in the bottom 10 of points allowed per game last season. It doesn’t help that they play in a pretty tough AFC West division. [+]

The Kansas City Chiefs should be a 10 win team once again. The Denver Broncos still don’t have their quarterback situation completely figured out after losing Peyton Manning to retirement. But they have been dependent on a strong defense for the last two years; they should be a 10 win squad once again.

The San Diego Chargers shouldn’t pose too much of a threat. They’ll win more than four games so long as quarterback Philip Rivers stays healthy this year, but they don’t have much to offer on the defensive side of the ball.

That leaves at least two teams in front of the Raiders for now. So barring any catastrophic injuries to the Broncos (on defense) or the Chiefs, they are not division future plays. By extension, they aren’t viable conference or Super Bowl plays, either.

But they are a team to keep in the loop on a weekly basis, as they’ll once again flirt with a .500 record that will make for some profitable single game bets.

Oakland Raiders Standings Right Now

These are the Oakland Raiders’ standings right now. Make sure to know where they sit relative to the rest of the AFC West and entire AFC at all times. [+]

Memorizing this information is doubly important for midseason futures bettors. If you want to see whether the Raiders are legitimate division, conference or Super Bowl gambles, just look at how their record compares to their rivals.

For the AFC West, see if they are hanging with the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs. For the entire AFC, find out if they’re within striking distance of a notorious powerhouse like the New England Patriots. And ditto for the Super Bowl odds.

How To Win At Oakland Raiders Betting

Steer clear of any over or under bets on the Oakland Raiders to start the season. Their roster, as currently constructed, isn’t built to provide an instant identity.

Yes, the offense, which ranked 17th in points scored per game for 2015, should be better. And given how bad the Raiders’ defense was last year, that can make the over seem like an intriguing fit. 

But the defense is expected to be better. The Raiders poached outside linebacker Bruce Irving from the Seattle Seahawks and cornerback Sean Smith from the Kansas City Chiefs in free agency. They also picked up safety Reggie Nelson, formerly of the Cincinnati Bengals.

This isn’t meant to suggest that the Raiders will suddenly be defensive studs. They won’t be. But they could rank in the top half of passing defense fairly easily, which will limit the number of touchdowns they give up. 

Hence the trepidation behind over and under bets. Keep tabs on the Raiders for the first few weeks of the season to see if you can figure out which play would be smarter. In the meantime, stick to spreads and moneylines.

Although the Oakland Raiders still aren’t the strongest futures option, that does mean you have a chance to play around with some long-shot adds.

Don’t bother using them as AFC or Super Bowl plays. That’s too absurd. The AFC isn’t begging for such contenders. It has the New England Patriots, Cincinnati Bengals, Pittsburgh Steelers, Kansas City Chiefs and perhaps Denver Broncos to soak up that option.

But the division front is different.

The Raiders will not be favorites to top the AFC West. Both the Broncos and Chiefs will be ahead of them. You can even see a scenario in which a healthy San Diego Chargers unit receives some more division love.

That, in this case, is a good thing.

Throw a modest amount of money on the Raiders to win the AFC West before the 2016 campaign starts, and your possible return should be massive. This should, of course, be an amount you’re not just comfortable with, but super comfortable with losing. The odds will be that long.

To mitigate the uncertainty, you can also wait a few weeks into the season before making any decisions. This safeguards you against an unexpected collapse from the Raiders. It’ll impact your odds some, but if you lay down a wager by Week 3 or 4, you should still be looking at a sizable return.

This is the extent of the Raiders’ futures potential right now. Maybe they’ll emerge as something more, on the AFC and Super Bowl front, sometime soon. But don’t bother with those wagers unless it becomes absolutely, unequivocally apparent that the Raiders have made such a leap.
