Philadelphia Eagles vs. Oakland Raiders Line

Sure the Raiders are just plain awful this season...again.  But the Philadelphia Eagles vs. Oakland Raiders line of -14 is absolutely nuts.  Of course, we know Oakland isn't the double digit favorite.  Philadelphia comes into this game as a huge road favorite.

When the Raiders were good back in 2001, they were a pick playing in Philadelphia and beat the Eagles by 20-10.

When they were bad in 2005, Oakland was a +9 underdog coming into Philadelphia and they managed to cover with a loss of only a field goal. 

Gambling911.com has a record worse than the Raiders.  We've managed to go 0-10 over the last two weeks with our picks...and we won't be picking this game only because we don't feel comfortable with the Eagles at this big a spread nor do we feel so inclined to ride the Raiders.  But read into this what you will.  Oakland certainly has a good shot of covering in this game.

ESPN.com AccuScore Simulations suggests that if Philadelphia has 3+ turnovers and Oakland has none the Raiders have a 57 percent chance of winning this game.

Keep in mind, the Raiders did play two good games to start the season.
