3 units on Seattle -3 (+105) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
It is hard to imagine a team that has looked worse than the Raiders did last week. That was just painful to watch. The starters were down 31-0 at the half last week to the Saints and it doesn't bode well for this team this season. The Saints had their way with both the running game, which tallied over 200 yards, and the passing game. Oakland committed five turnovers and managed just nine first downs all game long, with their starters playing most of the way. Now the players who aren't good enough to start for this really bad team take over in game four. Seattle first year head coach Jim Mora picked up right where Mike Holmgren left off and that is playing here to win as the Seahawks are unbeaten at 3-0. Seattle is now 22-10 ATS in their last 32 preseason games in weeks three and four. It's hard to take the Raiders seriously here and the Seahawks have a long history of winning these games which apparently hasn't changed under Mora.
