The Raiders are expected to be enormously much better this year against the NFL prospects.

 

Bettors have taken notice of the changes that the Raiders have made and NFL odds in sport betting ought to be lower on Oakland this season.

 

NFL lines at the online global sportsbook still will not prefer the Oakland Raiders on a regular basis but with a quality quarterback in Jason Campbell, Oakland will be capable of pulling off some upsets. They are receiving 6.5 points in their regular season opener at Tennessee and they could be worth a look in that game.

 

Players Self-confident:  Oakland players are actually self-confident entering the 2010 season, despite the fact that that might seem hard to believe. There is a new feeling in Oakland, although the Oakland Raiders have just about been awful the past few years. The Oakland Raiders in fact feel they are going to finish their streak of seven straight years with eleven or more losses.

 

Offensive Expertise:  The offense for Oakland will most likely be better. Campbell is a greater quarterback than JaMarcus Russell was. He will at least not make as many blunders and he’ll move the ball around, although he’s not astonishing. The Raiders have a new offensive coordinator in Hue Jackson and he appears to know his stuff.

 

The Oakland Raiders tied for last place in the league with 17 offensive touchdowns last season. They landed 49 points in their preseason victories at Dallas and Chicago. There’s no doubt with Campbell leading the squad that the offense will be much greater vs the NFL odds.

 

Top Receiver Out: The Raiders endured a blow when leading wide receiver Chaz Schilens underwent arthroscopic knee surgery this week. He’s out indefinitely. Darrius Heyward-Bey has still to prove he is a solid NFL receiver when it comes to betting football.

 

Key Season for McFadden:  This is it for Darren McFadden. He has to demonstrate he is a top player. He was the 4th pick of the 2008 draft. The Raiders may have a very excellent year if he plays like he did in college. Otherwise, then the optimism could be overrated.

 

Gifted Rookies:  Here is news for you. The Raiders in fact had a quality draft. Rookies Rolando McClain and Lamarr Houston might make an instant effect this season for Oakland. If they’re as excellent as they’ve looked in the preseason then the Oakland Raiders defense will probably be great.
