The kickoff is set for Sunday afternoon at 4:15 ET. In the Raiders’ last six games, the over is 5-1, while the under is 7-1 in the Jets last eight games. Oakland was in New Orleans last Sunday for an inter-conference football betting contest with the Saints, who were favored by seven points over the Raiders, with the ‘total’ speculated to be 47.
Oakland scored the first points of the game on a 24 yard field goal by veteran kicker Sebastian Janikowski and was up 3-0 at the end of the first quarter. But the Saints came back in the second quarter with a Reggie Bush touchdown run and a field goal that made the score 10-3 New Orleans at the half.
Simply put, the Raiders low rated defense was no match for Drew Brees and the explosive Saints offense. Brees threw three touchdown passes in the second half and led his team to the 34-3 victory, easily covering the NFL odds.
The New York Jets played host to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 6 and New York was touted as a 9.5-point favorite over Cincinnati, with the ‘total’ slated at 44. Brett Favre lost a fumble on the Jets’ first possession that was recovered by Bengals strong safety Nedu Ndukwe and ran back 15 yards for a touchdown.
Jets RB Thomas Jones had three touchdowns on the afternoon as the Jets were able to beat the Bengals by a final score of 26-14. Football bettors who picked the Jets to cover the NFL betting line were right on the money no pun intended.
Players who bet the over in this football betting contest were not as lucky, as the predicted ‘total’ missed the mark by 3.5 points. The visiting New York Jets currently sit as three-point road favorite against the Raiders, with the ‘total’ standing pat at 41 across the board.
