ABC is dreading another potential blowout on Monday night following last week’s joke and I can’t say I blame them. My first reaction to this game was that the spread was way off. Kansas City at 6-0 should kill the 2-4 Oakland Raiders. The Raiders committed 19 penalties last week and couldn’t look worst. The spread for this game just looked too good to be true. And maybe it is. The Raiders know their season is shot. All they have to play for now is pride. Just imagine an upset win over division rival Kansas City on Monday night. Imagine spoiling your rival’s perfect record. You can bet the Oakland players are imagining just that this week. After staring the year well, Kansas City’s defense has reverted to it’s poor play from 2002. KC is 26th in the league in total defense. Oakland gets Jerry Porter back which is the single biggest positive thing that could happen to this offense right now. With his ability to open the field up, Rice and Brown should have better games this week. Teams that are winless ATS at this point in the season do very well. In week 5, Chicago beat this Oakland team to get their first ATS win. Last week, it was the Jets’ turn to get their first ATS win. I look for Oakland to pull of the shocker this week.
