Cincinnati Bengals at Oakland Raiders: 3 bold predictions in Week 11
Raiders cover the spread (-10)
Raider Nation won’t be alone this week in betting on the Silver and Black, it looks like plenty of others are placing their faith in the Raiders as well, and convincingly. The Raiders are 10 point favorites on Sunday, with many believing Oakland can win by a two-possession score for the first time this season.
In each of the Raiders’ five wins this season they have come away with the victory by eight points or fewer, still unable to get a win by more than a single possession. Oakland has a very good chance to break that on Sunday against the winless Bengals.
So long as Gruden chooses to feed Jacobs all day long, and as long as the Raiders’ defense makes plays when needed to, Oakland will get their first win of the season by more than a single possession. After the whirlwind beginning of this season, Raider Nation could use an easy win in Week 11.
