Oakland is coming off a Week 6 bye. In their previous game, they defeated the Chicago Bears in London. Green Bay earned a come-from-behind 23-22 win at home over Detroit on Monday Night Football in Week 6.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

After improving to 5-1 with a controversial win against the Detroit Lions on Monday, the Pack are now six-point favorites in their Week 7 matchup against the Oakland Raiders. As of this writing, the Over/Under was 47.

Green Bay has a 7-5 lead in the all-time regular season games against Oakland, and they’ve won the last seven. The teams met in the preseason, in Winnipeg, but the field conditions were so bad that none of the key players were on the field.

Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders were rolling before the entered their bye week, winning two straight and finding themselves in second place in the AFC, just behind Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. Before the bye, they defeated the Chicago Bears 24-21 in London.

Oakland quarterback Derek Carr is completing 73 percent of his pass attempts for 1,117 yards with six touchdowns and three interceptions. Rookie running back Josh Jacobs has gotten off to a good start, with 430 yards on 88 carries with four touchdowns. The top receiver for the Raiders is tight end Darren Waller, who leads the team with 359 receiving yards.

Where the Raiders need improvement is on defense. They somehow managed to give up 28 points in a single quarter when they went up against the Chiefs this year. They may have an easier time against a Green Bay offense riddled with injuries.

Green Bay Packers

There were several calls during the the Packers – Lions that made football fans livid. The entire state of officiating in the National Football League has been problematic recently and last night’s missed and questionable calls have the referees and the league on blast.

The Packers had no answer for the Lions in the first half of the game, when Detroit came out firing on all cylinders. Green Bay was trailing 13-0 in the second quarter but then squeezed in a field goal moments before the half to make it 13-3. The Pack was down 22-13 with just over 12 minutes to go. The already weakened receiver core had lost Geronimo Allison to a scary-looking helmet to helmet hit, and with Davante Adams still out, Rodgers had very few reliable targets to throw to. But this is Aaron Rodgers, after all, and with his skill and some help from Allen Lazard and a couple phantom fourth-quarter penalties, the Packers managed to score another touchdown. Rodgers got out onto the field again after that TD, and managed the clock so well that the Lions had no chance to get back in the game after Rodgers got Mason Crosby into field goal range, where Crosby got the winning points with a 23-yarder.

When the season started, fans and pundits alike were talking about the new and improved Packers’ defense like they were the second coming. Now that this defense has had to face a few legit offenses, they’ve started to show where the cracks are.  The Packers are 18th in opponents’ yards per play overall.
