Oof. What a rough week of picks. Week four was brutal for our staff predictions, and the Raiders contributed to that.

Evan was the only staff member to come out of last week with a winning record for game picks at 8-7. There were so many unanimous or consensus picks, that if one of us has a rough week, we all figured to.

There’s far more indecision among the staff this week. One of the games split down the middle is the Raiders game against the Bears in London. The Bears are 5-point favorites, which isn’t a huge gap. They’re without starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky which could be just what the Raiders need to threaten to knock off the 3-1 Bears. We’ll see.
