Patriots Raiders Wagering Line

The New England Patriots in Week 11 will be trying to increase their lead in the AFC when they face the Oakland Raiders on Sunday afternoon in Mexico. The game will be played at Estadio Azteca, and is scheduled to begin at 4:25 PM. ET. The current NFL wagering line at the top sportsbooks all have the Pats as -6.5 road favorites.

What Makes the Patriots Betting Favorites?

At 7-2, the Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers are tied for the best record in the AFC, which means both teams will continue battling for home field advantage until the final weeks of the season, barring significant injury for either team.

During the offseason, this game was expected to be one of the biggest games of the year because the Raiders were expected to compete with the Patriots for the AFC title.

Nine games into the season, the Patriots are doing what they usually do, while the Raiders look like a team that might have been crowned too early.

With the Patriots adding Martellus Bennett last week, expect the team’s struggles in the red zone to end, now that Brady has another big target to utilize in the end zone.

Why Will the Raiders Lose?

At 4-5, the Raiders have gone from a team expected to compete for the AFC crown to a team that is just trying to make the playoffs.

After a 2-0 start to the year, the Raiders lost four consecutive games and haven’t been back over .500 since. A loss to the Patriots will all but end their playoff hopes because they would have to win six consecutive games just to get to 10 wins, and hope a lot of the teams ahead of them lose.

The good news for Raiders fans is that the team has won two of its last three games and they look to be getting back on track. However, it might be too late to save their season.
