Game of the Week - Rickenbach NFL Rotation #279 Saturday 10* Top Play Los Angeles Rams (+) @ Oakland Raiders @ 8 ET - The Raiders opened up as 2.5 point favorites in the earliest of lines that popped up globally on this game. Oakland then got be up to as high as a 5.5 before settling in at a -5 as of very early Saturday morning. The perception is that Gruden and the Raiders care more than McVay and the Rams. However, Gruden was with Oakland last year when they lost to Los Angeles in the preseason. Of course McVay was with the Rams then just as he was also in 2017 when LA also beat the Raiders in the preseason. Lets not forget that Oakland won only 4 regular season games last year. This season the Raiders are again projected to be one of the worst teams in the league. That said, with depth being an important factor in preseason outcomes, just how good can Oakland's depth be? Truly it is not o the level of the Rams. That said, even if one could surmise that the Raiders are the hungrier team here will that really translate to the less talented team and the team with less depth wining this game in convincing fashion? I think not! Give me the generous points being offered to the Rams as I would also like to note that LA is 2-1 in weeks 1 to 3 in each of the last two preseasons both SU and ATS and that included a loss by just 2 points. Remember week 4 of preseason is always a truly meaningless week so lets take that out of the equation. So the point is that the Rams 6 preseason games under McVay played in Weeks 1 through 3 of his two seasons have resulted in just ONE loss by more than two points! Give me the team that "supposedly" doesn't care here and "supposedly" will get blown out despite all the facts stated above! 10* LOS ANGELES RAMS
