The Oakland Raiders have been one of the biggest surprises in the NFL so far this season, and they will try to keep their momentum this weekend. Oakland will be in New York on Sunday to take on the struggling Jets, who still look to be a few years away from being a playoff team.
The Raiders will try to win this game by running the football, while the Jets are just trying to find any sort of offense this season.
Oakland comes into this game with a record of 6-4, and it sits in second place in the AFC West. The Raiders have won three straight games, and they should have a ton of momentum heading into this game.
New York is also playing better of late, and it has won each of its last two games. The Jets are still just 3-7 on the season, and they have plenty of things to correct.
BetAnySports has the Oakland Raiders as 2.5-point favorites in this game.
Raiders at Jets Overview
Oakland rookie running back Josh Jacobs is having a monster season for the Raiders, and he has really sparked the offense. Jacobs has run 923 yards already this season and is averaging close to 5.0 yards per carry.
Quarterback Derek Carr has had a much better season as well, and he has more time to operate with the improved rushing attack. The Raiders still struggle a bit on defense, and they must improve on the 25.0 points they allow per contest.
New York is averaging just over 16 points per game this season, and they really don’t do anything well on offense. Quarterback Sam Darnold has thrown 11 touchdowns this season, but he has also thrown 10 interceptions.
Running back Le’Veon Bell has not panned out for the Jets, who are averaging just 72 rushing yards per game. The Jets defense has been a little worse than average, but their offense needs to help them out.
Raiders at Jets Free Game Prediction
These two teams have combined to win five straight games, but the New York Jets have taken advantage of a pair of bad teams. The Jets have struggled to score points all season long, and they don’t have a ton of offensive playmakers.
Oakland is not a perfect team by any means, but they have found a strategy that works for them. The Raiders will run the football a ton in this game and will find enough offense to win.
