Packers Raiders NFL Preseason Gambling

Ready for some Packers Raiders NFL preseason gambling? The Green Bay Packers will be going for their third consecutive preseason win when they visit the Oakland Raiders in week 3 of the NFL preseason. The game will be played at Oakland Coliseum on Friday, August 24, and it is scheduled to begin at 10:30 PM. ET.

Green Bay Packers Analysis

The Packers have been great offensively during the preseason, scoring 31 points against the Tennessee Titans in their first game, and 51 against the Pittsburgh Steelers in their second game. They will be hoping their offense continues playing well when they play the Raiders, who have been solid defensively.

With this week being the third week of the preseason, the starters traditionally get a lot of playing time because it is the last preseason game they will play before the season starts.

Aaron Rodgers looked good against the Steelers, completing 2 of 4 passes for 35 yards and a touchdown. The battle for the backup quarterback position is still too close to call with DeShone Kizer completing 7 of 12 passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns, while Brett Hundley, who filled in for an injured Rodgers last season, completed 6 of 9 passes for 77 yards. How does that make you feel about NFL preseason gambling?

Green Bay’s defense gave up 34 points to the Steelers last week and will need to improve if they want to win on Friday.

Oakland Raiders Analysis

The Raiders suffered their first loss of the preseason when they played the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday and will be trying to bounce back with a win this week.

Head coach Jon Gruden has kept his starters out for most of the preseason, but he will likely give them some playing time on Friday so they aren’t rusty when the regular season starts. Enjoy these Packers Raiders betting odds.

Oakland’s offense hasn’t done much this preseason, averaging 15.5 points per game. Their defense has been stout and have held their opponents to 9.5 points per game. The defense will get tested against a Packers team that leads the league in scoring.

With quarterback Derek Carr sitting out last week’s game, E.J. Manuel and Connor Cook got a lot of playing time. Manuel finished the game completing 10 of 16 passes for 89 yards and one touchdown, while Cook went 6 of 12 for 49 yards.

Packers Raiders Pick and Prediction

The betting odds for this game are not yet available. The Raiders defense will have a tough time stopping Green Bay’s offense, especially if Rodgers plays significant minutes, and with their starters not getting a lot of playing time in the preseason, they will have a hard time keeping up with the Packers. Take Green Bay in this one. There you have it, all your NFL preseason gambling odds.
