You’d suppose a 6-4 group could be favored over a 3-7 group. Although you’d in all probability suppose that line could be considerably vital one. Not the case for the Raiders who’re favored by simply three factors in Atlanta over the Falcons.
On one hand, the Falcons have received all three of their video games of their final 5 video games since Raheem Morris took over as head coach. Then again, the Raiders have received six video games regardless of enjoying one of many hardest schedules within the NFL over the primary 11 weeks of the season.
When you take the Falcons document since Morris took over as their tempo proper now, they too could be 6-4. And the sport is in Atlanta. That often tends to offer the house group a pair factors of their favor. Then once more, the Raiders are higher on the street this season (4-1) than they’re at house (2-3). And three of their 4 street wins had been at 1pm Japanese (10am Pacific), so that they’ve overcome the dreaded early begin time that tends to plague West Coast groups.
Which will have one thing to do with there being largely no crowds and even within the situations there are followers current, it’s one thing like Kansas Metropolis the place the stadium was at 22% capability. Hardly a hostile atmosphere.
I believe what it comes right down to on this one is, whereas the Falcons could also be higher than their 3-7 document suggests, so too is the Raiders with regard to their 6-4 document. Take that for what it’s value.
