This could be a difficult game to forecast, as neither team was particularly impressive in Week 1. The Dolphins lost to the Texans by 20 points (30-10) in a game that wasn't close after the second quarter. And the Raiders lost on Monday night to Chargers, 22-14.
So far, experts are split on ESPN and Yahoo!, with some going for each team. The game's spread, which has fluctuated but will likely end up being less than three (in favor of the Raiders), indicates that we could be in for a close game.
But handicapping games so early in the season is dangerous business, especially in this case, as neither team made much of an impression in Week 1.
