Oakland Raiders vs. Arizona Cardinals Line at -6

The Oakland Raiders vs. Arizona Cardinals line was posted at -6 in favor of Oakland for Friday’s late night Preseason NFL game.   55 percent of those betting this game were backing the underdog Raiders here at WagerWeb.com

Over the last 10 years, these teams have alternated wins and losses with four head-to-head matchups.  There are no serious injuries to report on either side heading into this game. 

The Raiders enter the 2012 regular season with 5/1 odds of winning what should be a very competitive AFC West division.  They have the longest odds of any team including Kansas City (at 3/1 odds).   Nevertheless, this is not a Raiders team anybody should be counting out as the potential is certainly there, especially when the division itself could prove unpredictable.  60 percent of the betting public taking action on the Oakland Raiders OVER/UNDER believe this team will win OVER 7 regula season games.  The line was set at -120 for both the OVER and the UNDER

Meanwhile, the Cardinals are a pretty big -170 favorite to win UNDER 7 regular season games.  They would pay close to 7/1 odds to win their respective division.
