Baltimore over OAKLAND By 6
Oh my how the Raiders have gone from NFL fans’ penthouse to the outhouse in one short season. It’s what happens when a rabid fan base grows tired of losing. And it’s happened in a blink, too, as last year’s 12-win Oakland squad won it first two games of the 2017 season before dropping a pair of SUATS losses the past two weeks. And just like that, like a franchise headed to Las Vegas, they’re outta here. Making matters worse, with starting QB Derek Carr out 2-6 weeks with a back fracture, the Raiders turn the keys over to E.J. Manuel – and that’s never been a good thing. From our NFL QB database: Manuel is 6-11 SU and 7-10 ATS in the NFL, including 0-5 SUATS the last five, and 1-7 SUATS against foes off a loss (0-7 SUATS the last seven). That’s not good. Not when Oakland is 2-13 ATS in games before facing the Chargers. And not when Baltimore QB Joe Flacco is 13-5 ATS as a dog against opponents coming off a loss. While both teams have problems, the Ravens have a former Pro Bowl quarterback… and they’re the underdogs.
