Raider Nation is back. The Oakland Raiders are determined to prove people wrong this betting on NFL season, a quest that continued this past Sunday with a huge 28-13 win at the San Diego Chargers, snapping the franchises undefeated run in games played in November and December that spans since Norv Turner took over as head coach. The Raiders will now look to move even closer to the Chargers for the top spot in the AFC West with a second straight road win, with a trip to face the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday.

Online Sports Betting Odds: Jacksonville – 4.5

The Jaguars have been an even bigger surprise this season, climbing to the top spot in the AFC South with a 17-6 win over the Tennessee Titans despite just seven wins this season. Jacksonville is on track to return to the postseason, but it will take a strong finish that includes two road games against the division rival Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans to get there.

Why To Bet On The Raiders

The Raiders did everything right in the win over the Chargers, bouncing back from consecutive losses with a huge rushing effort that included a total of 251 yards on the ground between running backs Darren McFadden, Michael Bush, and quarterback Jacons Campbell. McFadden rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown, while Bush nearly equaled that with 95 yards and a score. Campbell and the offense were patient, picking their spots while the Chargers turned the ball over repeatedly, including twice in the first quarter that led to two Oakland touchdowns to open the game. The Raiders will need that same rushing effort on the ground this week against a Jaguars’ defense that ranks 17th in the league against the run.

Why To Bet On The Jaguars

For all of the talk about Oakland’s rushing performance last football betting weekend, how about a Jacksonville running game that ranks second in the league with an average of 151.5 yards per game. Maurice Jones-Drew has been the focal point for a team that has overachieved this year, and although he will be relied on heavily in this game, the Jaguars will need to get some help from quarterback David Garrard and their 29th-ranked passing game. Jacksonville has struggled against the pass all season, so it’s a good thing that the Raiders have had trouble moving the ball through the air. The Jaguars’ only loss the past five weeks came against the New York Giants, a 24-20 defeat in which they allowed a late touchdown to fall behind. These guys are for real.

How The Game Will Play Out

The Jaguars have won four of their last five, and are playing some of the best football they have under head coach Jack Del Rio. Jacksonville will slow the Raiders’ running game just enough to take advantage of their weak run defense, and secure their third straight home win this Sunday.
