Weekly line thread: Eagles +3 at Raiders

Recommended Posts

Eagles Nation will be well-represented over on Al Davis Way in Vegas (the city)  this Sunday.  That's an interesting number for the Birds on the road. Vegas (the team) might be due for a letdown after blocking out the noise and hammering the Broncos on the road.  At some point, the adrenaline wears off.  Vegas (the sportsbook) is keeping it close. 

Line: Raiders-3/Eagles
Total: 47.5/48
ML: Raiders -160/Eagles +140

I’m surprised because it’s just the HC. They still have the same talent and I’m sure Gruden wasn’t the only one creating plays. There was likely a group effort. So they still have the same people designing plays minus Gruden

Yeah but Gruden ran the whole program - he's a complete D-bag but he was in charge of every aspect of the team.  And he violated their trust.  At some point, things like that becomes a factor.  A possible letdown seems to be baked into the line.

True. Who knows though. Maybe they come out better than before now

Some of us(Me) thinks that Gruden was holding the Raiders back. (same with Mccarthy in Dallas)

 

Raiders may win by 28 to prove a point

I have no read or feeling on this one. But that's pretty much for the season so far. Probably will be like that for the entire season. 😆

Not sure what to think of this game anymore.  I was really confident after Gruden got fired because I was sure it would throw that team into a tailspin with all the national controversy surrounding the team.  But they handled the Broncos.  Broncos are a bad team but so are the Eagles.  I do think or at least hope that the extra time off to prepare for this game will result in a more inspiring performance from the offense, especially in the first half.  

 

The Eagles really have a good opportunity to flip this season if they can win this game heading into a really easy stretch the rest of the way outside of the Chargers and Cowboys (who could just be resting starters week 18).   If they don't win this game they still can but then they will have to win a game like the Saints or Broncos game.

Personally I think Lurie is violating our trust that he will field the best team possible, that will never be the case with Dumbarse selecting the players.

I know the Raiders aren't a particularly good team but I think they are good enough to beat us. +3 is standard for the road team but I'd put this at +4/5 to be honest. I don't think we are going to win this one.
