The Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers meet Thursday in NFL action at Levi's Stadium.
The Oakland Raiders need a victory here to kind of quiet the outside noise after losing six of their first seven games. The Oakland Raiders have lost each of their three road games this season. Derek Carr is completing 72 percent of his passes for 2,027 yards, 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Carr has one or less touchdown passes in four of his last six games. Jared Cook and Jordy Nelson have combined for 811 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Jalen Richard has 39 receptions. The Oakland Raiders ground game is averaging 94 yards per contest, and Marshawn Lynch leads the way with 376 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Oakland is allowing 29.3 points and 398.5 yards per game. Tahir Whitehead leads the Oakland Raiders with 50 tackles, Maurice Hurst has two sacks and Rashaan Melvin has one interception.
The San Francisco 49ers could also use a feel good victory here that would snap a six-game losing streak. The San Francisco 49ers have split their last eight home games. C.J. Beathard is completing 60.4 percent of his passes for 1,252 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. Beathard has two touchdown passes and two interceptions in his last two games. George Kittle and Marquise Goodwin have combined for 843 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Kyle Juszczyk has 19 receptions. The San Francisco 49ers ground game is averaging 137.4 yards per contest, and Matt Breida leads the way with 487 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, San Francisco is allowing 31.1 points and 371.7 yards per game. Fred Warner leads the San Francisco 49ers with 66 tackles, DeForest Buckner has 4.5 sacks and Antone Exum Jr. has one interception.
The Raiders are 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 road games 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games on grass and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The 49ers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Thursday games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The over is 8-3 in 49ers last 11 games overall and the under is 11-3 in Raiders last 14 games overall.
The Oakland Raiders are simply a mess of an organization right now, as the team is losing, key players are getting traded and now there's rumors that the coach and quarterback have lost the team. Betting wise, you want no parts of the Raiders right now. The San Francisco 49ers have been held to 18 or less points in three of their last four games and have won just three games since the start of 2016 when Jimmy Garoppolo wasn't quarterback. The Oakland Raiders have failed to cover six of their last seven games as an underdog of at least three points. The San Francisco 49ers have failed to cover six of their last seven games as a favorite of at least three points. I don't want to back the Raiders, but I'm not laying chalk with a 49ers team that's averaging a win per season the last three years without Jimmy G. The 49ers also just lost to the poor Arizona Cardinals, while the Raiders have played four teams this season that have at least a .500 record. Give me my free field goal.
