OAK­LAND over NY Jets by 7

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

To their credit, the Raiders over­came over­whelm­ing sup­port the OTHER way in last week’s sea­son opener against the Ti­tans. Of­ten the pop­u­lar pub­lic team in 2016, and like last year when they won SU as road dogs at New Or­leans in the sea­son opener, Oak­land si­lenced the lambs when they did the same at Ten­nessee last week. To­day, though, they dress up in wolves’ cloth­ing, sport­ing a record at home af­ter fac­ing the Ten­nessee Ti­tans, as well as a mark fol­low­ing a SU un­der­dog win when fac­ing a sub .500 foe. Mean­while, the lowly Jets fly into the bay off last week’s loss at Buf­falo with a 5-2 SU and 6-1 ATS log fol­low­ing a divi­sion game in this se­ries. The Fly­boys are also 5-3 SU and 6-1-1 ATS away in Game 2 of the sea­son the last 8 years. Hence, it’s no sur­prise to find the Raiders fall to as fa­vorites in home open­ers to­day.
