The Football Team are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS win and are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Raiders haven’t fared well against the spread this season Raiders are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. I think they turn it around and get the much needed win and cover against this Washington Football team.
