Not many pro football betting gamblers will want to bet the Raiders in this game considering they have won just three games this season.
Online NFL betting numbers have the Patriots favored by about a touchdown on the road. While most gamblers will be on the Patriots in this game not all of the online NFL betting fans support them. Pro football betting fans saw the Raiders go 5-4 straight up in the last 9 games against the Patriots. Online NFL betting recent history though is more on the side of the Patriots as they have won two of the last three matchups. The last meeting was in 2005 at New England as the Patriots won 30-20 according to online NFL betting results.
The Raiders have had a ton of problems in the online NFL betting matches this season, not the least of which is scoring points. They are 30th in points scored and 31st in total yards as online NFL betting numbers show. The defense is slightly better but it is unlikely they will be able to contain New England in this pro football betting matchup.
The Patriots have been solid in online NFL betting but not spectacular. New England rarely wins games by large margins and that would be the only concern for gamblers betting the Patriots in online NFL betting. The online NFL betting stats show that only twice this season have the Patriots won by more than 10 points. Last week at Seattle the Patriots did win 24-21 but they did not cover the pro football betting pointspread. Matt Cassel has been consistently improving each week but the Patriots still are not what they were a year ago offensively.
