The Oakland Raiders finished at 4-12 last season, and as we enter the 2019 Divisional Round, they are a long-shot to win the Super Bowl in 2020.
The Oakland Raiders were one of the worst teams in football record-wise in 2018, as they got off to a slow start to the season, and never rebounded. In fact, they had only two wins heading into the last four games of the season, though they split the final four to finish at 4-12.
As they head into 2019, there are not many out there who feel they will do much in terms of improving that record, and becoming a playoff team. They have a lot of work to do, as they have 33 pending free agents, but like every team in the NFL, the record goes back to 0-0 after the Super Bowl.
Staying with the Super Bowl, the Raiders are not a favorite to do much in that department either, as they were recently slotted towards the bottom of the league in terms of odds of winning the big game in February of 2020. In fact, only the Miami Dolphins have worse odds than the Silver and Black.
Oddshark.com tweeted this out on Wednesday.
When it comes to all of the teams in the NFL, the Raiders are grouped in with the New York Jets, Washington Redskins, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers as having the second-worst odds to win the big game in February of 2020. Only the Miami Dolphins are behind these teams, finishing as the worst team in the league according to these odds.
Of course, none of this matters, as the Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs had the same Super Bowl odds back in August. The Raiders have a golden opportunity to really improve the roster this offseason, as they have six of the first 100 picks in the 2019 NFL Draft, and nearly $80 million dollars in cap space to spend.
