The Oakland Raiders welcome the Seattle Seahawks to Oakland Coliseum this Thursday for the final contest of the preseason for both teams, and while this game will mean nothing in regards to impact on the playoff standings for the coming regular season, it will mean a lot in regards to what it will take to earn a postseason spot. Thursday’s contest represents the final opportunity for teams that were on the outside looking in during the 2010 playoffs to iron out whatever wrinkles remain before the real games get underway.

Why To Bet On The Seahawks?

Suffering consecutive losses to the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings has put somewhat of a damper on the Pete Carroll praising that took place in Seattle after their beloved Seahawks opened the preseason with a close road win over the Tennessee Titans. If either of those two results had been different, Carroll would have likely rested most of his starters to avoid injury in the exhibition finale, but now there is a sense that the former USC head coach would like to see his team enter the regular season on a winning note. Leon Washington has made an early impact in the running game after being acquired from the New York Jets in the offseason, and will likely be the key playmaker of the three rushers on the Seattle roster. A division clash awaits the Seahawks following this Thursday’s contest just down the road in San Francisco against the 49ers, and whether or not the Seattle players are playing with one eye on that clash will go a long way in determining what sort of effort they bring against the Raiders.

Why To Bet On The Raiders?

Even before the preseason got underway, Oakland head coach Tom Cable had been talking playoffs. The Raiders have done well with wins in two of their first three preseason contests, including topping both the Dallas Cowboys and the Chicago Bears in a couple of big road wins. Making an impression on a concerned fan base has to be near the top of the list on things Cable wants to do, so it is likely the Raiders’ leader will do what is necessary to give his team the chance to win before traveling to Tennessee to face the Titans in their football betting regular season opener.

How The Game Will Play Out

The Seahawks have no decisions left to make for the starting positions on both sides of the ball, and with a huge clash the following week at home against the 49ers, will likely be resting their talents for when it really counts. It is only preseason for the Raiders as well, but there is a little more urgency in Oakland to win in front of the home crowd, as owner Al Davis’ latest edition of the silver and black aim to return to the postseason this year.
