How Many Wins?
Okay, the Raiders may not win the Super Bowl, but how many wins will they have? The win total for this team is put at over/under 8 wins. That seems like a modest number, but this is a team that managed to get just 6 wins a season ago. This team could have some growing pain as Gruden implements his west coast offense. They also will need to come to agreement with Khalil Mack or the defense could suffer. With so many question marks it is hard to tell exactly how many wins the Raiders will have, although 8 seems reasonable.
Moving on From Mack?
Recently reports have surfaced that the Raiders are considering trading their best defensive player in Kahlil Mack. One site reported that mock drafts indicate that the Raiders would get two first round picks in return for Mack. Others don’t think it is going to happen, but until the Raiders take care of this issue, it is going to be a lingering problem. This could cost teh Raiders some wins on teh football field.
Winning the West
The AFC West has always been a very competitive division. The Chiefs are tough; the Broncos improved at QB and have a stout defense and the Chargers look ready to take charge. That makes the AFC West a difficult division for the Raiders to win. The Raiders are (+300) to win the AFC West which is behind both the Chiefs (+150) and the Chargers (EV) according to the odds.
Oakland Raiders 2018 Preview and Prediction
The Raiders will be improved this season. They will be in the Wild Card hunt as the season nears an end. Unfortunately the Raiders just don’t have the defense to keep up with some of the more talented teams in the AFC. The Raiders will finish with seven wins and finish in 3rd place in the AFC West. However, the future looks great for Raider nation, just not now.
