One of these years the Oakland Raiders will find themselves a QB. They have spent countless early round draft picks, and have yet to strike paydirt. The oddsmakers don't believe that this year will be any different as they break in another new QB, and they are +3200 to win the division. What the Raiders may lack in offense, may be made up for at least partially on defense. The defense looks to be upgraded as they added some new faces in LaMarr Woodley, Justin Tuck and Khalil Mack. They could be built very similar to Cleveland this season with a defense that just might be good enough to keep them in games early in the season. The Jets gave up 24.2 points per game a year ago, but when you look at this team they have a solid unit on defense and a strong D-line. They have added reinforcements in the back of the defense in picking up Dimitri Patterson and Calvin Pryor. That should make them better. The Jets' problem is on offense. Last season they scored 20 points or less 10 times, and 18 or less in half of their games, which makes winning problematic. And, nothing I see implies a drastic improvement this season. This line appears to be way out of line as the Jets never took the field as more than a FG favorite in the entire 2013 season. Both of these teams seem to have made most of their potential improvements on the defensive side, and with a low-scoring game expected, the number is almost double any the Jets tried to take down a year ago. Take both the points on Oakland and the UNDER in this one.
