The Oakland Raiders had a bye in Week 5, but they took on their AFC West division rivals, the San Diego Chargers, in Week 4. Oakland was a nine point underdog with the ‘total’ standing pat at 45.5 according to the closing NFL odds.
The first half of this game was all Raiders: two Sebastian Janikowski field goals, a safety, and a 66 yard JaMarcus Russell touchdown pass. However, Oakland squandered its lead and gave up 25 points to the Chargers in the final period.
The Raiders lost to the San Diego Chargers by a final score of 28-18, as pro football bettors who picked San Diego laying the points breathed a sigh of relief as the Chargers covered the NFL betting line by one point in the closing minutes of the game. The loss sealed Lane Kiffin’s fate as head coach…
New Orleans hosted the Minnesota Vikings in a Monday night match-up at the Superdome. The Saints closed as three-point favorites with the ‘total’ listed at 47. New Orleans was down 20-10 in the third quarter when Reggie Bush returned a punt 74 yards for a touchdown to cut the Vikings’ lead to three points.
Minnesota went three and out on its next possession and inexplicably hung one up for Bush who made some great moves to hit pay-dirt once again to reclaim the lead for the Saints.
However, Minnesota scored on its next drive and ended up winning the game 30-27 when K Ryan Longwell hit the game winner after Saints K Martin Gramatica FG attempt sailed wide left moments earlier.
NFL bettors who backed the over and the Vikings as road pups per the closing football betting lines nailed their two-team Monday Night football parlays. The New Orleans Saints are nine-point favorites over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, with the ‘total’ predicted to be 46.5.
