Oakland Raiders vs San Francisco 49ers

Thursday Night Football, 11/01/2018 at 8:20pm ET

Wow! The 1-6 Oakland Raiders travel about 5 minutes to take on the equally impressive 1-7 San Francisco 49ers in a game I am sure the NFL would love to un-move from Prime Time TV. But they can't. SF is a 3 point home favorite, which is the amount of points the home team usually gets right off the bat, so this game is as even as it comes, although SF does have a 62.8% chance of winning according to ESPN.

The over/under is 46 points, but not because of these teams' great offenses. SF scores 21.6 points per game compared to Oakland's 19.7. Defensively, however, the 49ers give up 29.5 PPG to the Raiders 31.1. The over/under should be on how many people actually watch this game. The only time the  Raiders won this year was against the lowly Browns, and they needed overtime to do it by a field goal. SF's only win came back in week two against Detroit; they also won their game by 3 points.

I think I would have to go with the 49ers for this one. They are at home, Oakland has two players definitely out, and Oakland has been trading away their team in Mack and Cooper.

I have a feeling this is low scoring as both teams may play for the loss and get that higher draft pick next year. KIckoff is at 5:20 PM PT Thursday night.
