Despite sitting with 4-6 records, the Raiders and Titans are still in the thick of the AFC playoff race. Both teams are one game back in the wild card chase and the winner on Sunday could be tied for the No. 6 seed. The oddsmakers give Oakland a slight edge with the Raiders a 1.5-point favorite in the opening line, according to OddsShark.com.
The line bodes well for the Raiders who are 7-3 against the spread this season. Most of that success, however, came as the underdog. The Raiders have been favored in just two games this season and are 1-1 when favored, both straight up and against the spread.
Tennessee hasn't played well recently, winning just one of its last six games. Oakland is 3-3 in its last six and coming off a 28-23 win against Houston. Neither team has a prolific offense and oddsmakers expect a low-scoring game with the total set at 41.5 points. The total has gone over in six of Tennessee's last seven games. The Raiders have trended the opposite direction, with the total going under in eight of their last nine home games.
