The Oakland Raiders will look to win 10 games for the first time since 2002 when they host the Buffalo Bills on Sunday afternoon as three-point betting favorites at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.
Oakland improved to 9-2 with last week’s narrow 35-32 win over the Carolina Panthers as 3 1/2-point chalk, and now takes a five-game straight-up winning streak into Sunday afternoon’s Bills vs. Raiders betting matchup at Oakland Coliseum.
The Raiders have averaged over 31 points per game during their current surge, covering on four occasions and rewarding bettors taking the over in totals betting in each of those contests.
Oakland also has allayed concerns about its ability to win at home, winning four of six SU after losing five of its previous seven at Oakland Coliseum. However, the Raiders have struggled to cover at home, going 1-9 against the spread in their past 10 games there.
The 6-5 Bills head west riding a two-game SU win streak to keep their fading playoff hopes alive. Buffalo is coming off a 28-21 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars as 8 1/2-point chalk, but is winless in its past two games against teams with losing records and a meagre 1-3-1 ATS in its past five, according to the OddsShark NFL Database.
Elsewhere, the 7-4 Miami Dolphins will aim for their first seven-game SU win streak since 1985 as they visit the Baltimore Ravens as 3 1/2-point underdogs. The Dolphins are unbeaten ATS during their current six-game streak, which has moved them into wild-card contention in the AFC.
The 6-5 Ravens eked out a 19-14 win over the Cincinnati Bengals last week to reclaim a share of first place in the AFC North, alongside the Pittsburgh Steelers. Baltimore is 5-1 SU and 6-0 ATS in its past six games against Miami.
The Steelers will have their hands full Sunday, as they look to end a two-game slide at home in a visit from the red-hot New York Giants as six-point favorites. Pittsburgh has won two straight on the road, both SU and ATS, but surrendered 31 points per game in recent home losses to the New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys.
The 8-3 Giants have won six straight, going 5-1 ATS, including a pair of road wins, and are 5-1 SU in six visits to Pittsburgh since the merger, and 1-1 ATS in their past two.
In other NFL Week 13 betting action, the Kansas City Chiefs try to keep pace with the Raiders ahead of their clash next week, visiting the Atlanta Falcons as 4 1/2-point underdogs. The Denver Broncos visit the Jaguars as 3 1/2-point favorites, while the Panthers visit the Seattle Seahawks on “Sunday Night Football” as seven-point underdogs.
