Oakland Raiders 2012 Season Win Total Outlook & Projection:
2012 Oakland Raiders Las Vegas Season Win Total Line;
As of this writing, oddsmakers have the 2012 NFL regular season
win total line
for the Oakland Raiders set at 7 wins.
This is the same win number line
as in the prior season, which the Raiders topped with a record of (8-8),
even though they were net negative 74 points on the season.
The Raiders allowed the second most points in the AFC last season as the defense
was weak against both pass and run.
Getting DE Matt Shaughnessy back from injury should help the front.
But Oakland also needs improved play from the linebacking core.
A switch in offensive philosophy will be interesting to watch as it's questionable
whether Oakland has the players in the passing game to fit the West Coast style.
If Darren McFadden can stay healthy for the full season, he could take the team on his back.
In 2012 the Raiders find themselves with a slightly easier than average strength of schedule on paper
with the combined winning percentage of their opponents in the prior year
checking in at the .496 mark.
In 2012 the Raiders will play 7 games versus teams that made the playoffs in the prior season.
This is an increase of 1 such games compared to their prior year campaign;
Other potentially competitive games in '12 for the silver & black include;
home to San Diego in week 1,
@Miami in week 2 (humidity and long trip), @Kansas City in week 8, Kansas City in week 15, @Carolina in week 16 (long trip),
and home to San Diego in week 17.
Lighter competition includes;
home to Jacksonville in week 7,
home to Tampa Bay in week 9,
and home to Cleveland in week 13.
In 2012 we project the Raiders to go (5-11), falling below the
Vegas regular season win total of 7 games.
