Last week against the Chargers, the Raiders won their first game while being favored. But those who were betting on the Raiders covering, lost, because the line was four and the Raiders won by just three. Only one previous time were the Raiders favored and they lost (Falcons). This week will make the third game this season they will be favored. But not by much.

It's interesting that the Raiders are favored by one point, considering two of their first three wins this season were by one point. It's also interesting that in two contests, the Raiders were 1-point underdogs, not favorites. That is usually the difference between home and away. This one is in Oakland, giving the Raiders the edge in the odds. Though playing at home doesn't usually seem to favor the Raiders. Three of their four wins this season have come on the road.
The Raiders lost both meeting with the Chiefs last season.
