NFL bet action for Sunday includes what appears to be one of the biggest mismatches to bet on football with so far this season as Oakland meets the Giants.
NFL bet line makers opened with the Giants as whopping 16-point home favorites to bet on football with in this matchup with an opening total of 40.5.
The Oakland Raiders are one of the worst teams on the board to make a NFL bet with. The Raiders have a bet on football record of 1-3 straight up and 2-2 against the spread but have lost their last 2 consecutive NFL bet matchups against the spread and have scored a total of only 9 points in the process.
Oakland’s problems are multiple but quarterback as good of a place to start as any for their NFL bet issues. JaMarcus Russell has regressed in his development and has a NFL bet quarterback rating of 42.4 based on a completion percentage of under 40% with 1 touchdown pass and 4 interceptions. In Oakland’s 6-29 bet on football loss at Houston last week as 9-point NFL bet dogs Russell was horrible as he went 12-33 for just 128 yards. The Raiders had no better NFL bet success on the ground as they amassed just 45 yards rushing.
Further adding to the dysfunction of this franchise is the NFL bet status of head coach Tom Cable. Cable is facing the increasing possibility of being arrested for breaking the jaw of an assistant coach last August in training camp. If charges are brought Cable will face a near certain suspension from the league.
The New York Giants have a NFL bet record of 4-0 straight up and 3-0-1 against the spread. Last week Big Blue got the cash at Kansas City with a 27-16 win as 9-point NFL bet chalks. The Giants rank 5th in total offense and number one in total defense.
One cause for concern for New York is the status of Giant quarterback Eli Manning who is listed as probable after hurting his foot at Kansas City. Manning is resolved to try and play although he knows it will be painful.
