Betting landscape 

In terms of betting, the Raiders have posted a 3-5-0 record against the spread this year, indicating some inconsistency in their performance. The Raiders have shown their potential when favored by two points or more, with two against-the-spread wins in four such games. However, only 25% of their games have gone over the total point line, signifying a tendency towards lower-scoring matchups.

On the other hand, the Giants have managed to cover the spread in two out of their eight games this season. They have often been underdogs by two points or more and have managed to cover the spread in two of these scenarios. Their games have typically stayed under the total point line, with only one game exceeding the set point total. Important to consider all these facts, when studying BUSR´s NLF Odds
