The Panthers are 6-2 and a popular team with gamblers making football bets, while the Raiders are 2-6 and a team people like to avoid in NFL betting.
NFL betting history shows that Carolina and Oakland have only met three times in the past 11 years. The Raiders actually won two of the three meetings including a home contest in 2000 according to NFL betting numbers. All three of the games went well over the posted NFL betting total. In fact, the two teams cleared the 50 point mark in each game according to NFL betting history. The last meeting between the two teams was in 2004 at Carolina as the Raiders won 27-24 according to NFL betting statistics.
Carolina has been a pretty good road favorite in recent seasons according to NFL betting numbers. They are 8-5 the past few seasons in that role according to NFL betting statistics. The Raiders are nothing special at home as an underdog in recent seasons for gamblers making football bets. The Raiders are 11-14-1 in that role since 2005 according to NFL betting statistics.
Gamblers making football bets really don’t want anything to do with the Raiders. Last week the Raiders were not even competitive against Atlanta and gamblers making football bets are very wary of taking Oakland in any situation. The Panthers are the superior team on both sides of the ball and even the home field advantage may not be enough to entice gamblers to back a poor Raiders team in this game. Perhaps the big pointspread will be enough to lure a few gamblers into taking the Raiders but most of the public will be backing Carolina.
Looking at the total in Week 10 NFL odds we see that the Raiders have been a slight under team at home while the Panthers on the road are 50-50 in terms of over/unders.
