Seahawks vs. Raiders

The Seahawks vs. Raiders spread was between Oakland -2 and -3 depending on the online sportsbook.  North America’s oldest, Bookmaker.com, had the line at -2.5, which we at Gambling911.com say is probably a pretty good compromise. 

Suddenly both these teams are starting to look impressive in their respective Western Conference divisions.  The betting public is backing the Raiders spread at 60 percent but are on the Seahawks money line at an 85 percent clip.  The money line in this game for Seattle pays a mere $11 for every $10 bet should they win outright.  The total was listed at 42 and some 70 percent of those betting it were on the OVER. 

An important notice:  Don Best advises us that, the betting public is correct when moving the total in SEATTLE games 68.8% of the time over the past 3 seasons. (22-10).  The OVER in this game has a tremendous edge.

Oakland will come into this game on a tremendous high having beaten their rivals, the Denver Broncos, by a score of 59-14, on the road no less.

"I expected this to be a street fight," Raiders coach Tom Cable said. "It started like that and we made sure it didn't go any further."

This one was decided in the opening minutes.

"You blinked and looked up and it was out of hand," said Denver defensive back Nate Jones.

With a win, the Raiders go to 4-4 on the season so far.  However, they will face a surprising Seattle Seahawks team that has gone 4-2.  The Seahawks have had great difficulty on the road in recent years and come into this game without a win in Oakland in 13 years.

Just look at this trend for example: The Seahawks are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 road games.  They are just 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games as a road underdog.

Still, there is not a whole lot of value in betting against Seattle focusing exclusively on this mouth-watering trend. While the Raiders are 16-36 Against The Spread in their last 52 home games, they are an abysmal 0-11 ATS in their last 11 games as a home favorite.

Oakland will be facing a Seattle defense that held Arizona to 227 yards while creating five turnovers -- one fewer than its total from the previous four games.

The Seahawks are 5-2 Against The Spread in their last 7 games overall.

The Seahawks are 4-13 ATS in their last 17 games following a S.U. win.  The Raiders are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a S.U. win.

The Seahawks are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 road games.  They are just 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games as a road underdog.  The Raiders, however, are 0-11 ATS in their last 11 games as a home favorite.

Seattle is 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games on grass.

Playing opposite other opponents, either of these two teams would have tremendous disadvantages when it comes to specific trends.  Here we say focus on the OVER and – that all important stat again - the betting public is correct when moving the total in SEATTLE games 68.8% of the time over the past 3 seasons. (22-10).  The OVER in this game has a tremendous edge
