NFL odds and lines Week 11: Saints vs. Raiders

Christian Petersen

The New Orleans Saints have won back-to-back games and opened as a 3-point favorite against the Raiders.

After starting the season 0-4, the New Orleans Saints have won four of their last five games to move back into the NFC playoff picture. The Saints will go for their third straight win on Sunday when they travel to Oakland to face the Raiders.

New Orleans opened as a 3-point favorite, according to OddsShark.com. The Saints are 5-4 against the spread this season, but are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games. While the Saints have been surging, the Raiders have gone the opposite direction. Oakland has lost two straight, dropping to 3-6 on the season.

The Raiders are 3-6 against the spread this season, but have covered just once in their last seven games against New Orleans, dating back to 1988. The two teams have played twice since 2004 with the Saints winning both games. The total for Sunday's game opened at 54, but recent history says that may not be high enough. The total has gone over in 11 of the Saints' last 14 games and 11 of Oakland's last 16.

The fact New Orleans is on the road is also a good sign for the over as the total has gone over in five of the last six Saints' road games. That trend continues for the Raiders at home as seven of Oakland's last eight home games have gone over.
