Eagles vs. Raiders, Week 9: Betting odds, trends & pick

Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

The trends of this head-to-head favor the Raiders in Week 9 against the Eagles.

The Eagles will travel to Oakland in Week 9 to face the Raiders on Sunday. While both teams have similar records, history and trends prove to be in favor of the Raiders.

The Eagles are 3-1 ATS on the road this season. While they are 5-3 ATS overall this season, Philadelphia has gone 5-14 ATS in their 19 games. However, the Eagles open as one-point favorites heading into this Week 9 matchup.

The Eagles are fifth in the league in total yards per game with 397.1 and second in rushing yardage per game with 150.3. Along with their high-powered offense, they are 5-3 with the OU this season. After a pair of low-scoring losses, the Eagles are currently ranked in a tie for 18th place for points per game at 22. Their inconsistent scoring has led to five losses as the defense allowed an average of 26.38 points per game to opponents.

The Eagles hold an advantage over the Raiders in points per game, rushing yardage per game, passing yardage per game and turnover differential. Philadelphia has gone 4-2 SU in its last six games.

Still, the OddsShark computers have the Raiders predicted to win a close contest by a score of 17-16.

The Raiders are 3-1 ATS at home this season. Oakland is 6-2 ATS in their last eight games and are 0-6 in the OU in their pass six games as home underdogs.

The Oakland defense is 10th in the league in yardage per game with 330.9 and are fourth in the league against the run, allowing just 629 yards on the ground this season. The Raiders strength against the run will come in handy against the league's top rusher in LeSean McCoy.

On offense, the Raiders are still trying to find their way. Oakland ranks 25th in yards per game with 314.9 and 26th with points per game at 18. The Raiders defense is allowing 21.4 points per game, which is good for 21st in the league.

These two teams are evenly matched and this game will likely come down to how both offenses perform. If Nick Foles is able to play like he did in his first start of the season against Tampa Bay, the Eagles will have a good chance of pulling off a road victory. If he plays like he did against Dallas, it could be a long road trip for Philadelphia.
