Super Bowl LV Betting Pick:
The Raiders improved in year two under Jon Gruden and will improve on last season’s record if they stay healthy. Despite their expected improvement, they will have a hard time making the playoffs because they will have a lot of competition from the Denver Broncos, who will be trying to get the second spot in the division.
As they stand, the Raiders look like the third best team in the division and will likely win eight or nine games this season.
