NorthBet NFL Betting Online – Oakland Raiders vs. San Francisco

Posted by Brett Nielson on 10/14/2010 3:23:38 PM

The San Francisco 49ers dreadful performance last week is just a glimpse of how fast this team has declined; so fast, in fact, that I’m picking them to lose against the Raiders this NFL betting online Sunday.

(2-3) Oakland Raiders at (0-5) San Francisco 49ers
Live from Candlestick Park - CA
Kickoff: 4:05 PM EST Sunday, October 17, 2010
Broadcast: CBS

NorthBet NFL Betting Online:
Oakland Raiders +6.5
San Francisco 49ers -6.5
Total 40.5

The 49ers came into this season with so much promise and support from North Bet wagerers.

Many, including myself, believed that this would be the year that they finally surpassed the Arizona Cardinals and won the NFC West. Nevertheless, with 6-year-pro quarterback Alex Smith under center, San Francisco has lost their first five games this NFL betting online season and are showing no signs that things are about to turn around.

Smith played so poorly last NFL betting online week that spectators began chanting, “We want Carr! We want Carr” referring to 49ers 31-year-old backup quarterback David Carr.

The crowd began shouting this right after Smith lost a fumble to Philadelphia’s Quintin Mikell who ran 52 yards for a touchdown. The following drive, the 49er quarterback missed three consecutive passes on San Francisco’s following drive to go 3-and-out.

Surprisingly enough, he posted a 92.8 passer rating in last week’s matchup, his best rating to date this NFL betting season.

If San Francisco wants to beat the Raiders this week, Alex Smith needs to wake up. It is essential that he becomes more effective on third downs, as the 49ers have only managed to convert on 34% of their third down attempts.

Oakland is coming off an incredible amount of momentum having beaten San Diego 35-27 last weekend.

While the Raiders did give up 431 passing yards to Phillip Rivers, they held San Diego to only 2 scores out of 6 red-zone drives the whole night.

The Raiders currently rank 10th in the NFL against the pass, even after playing against elite passing teams like San Diego and Houston two weeks in a row.

NFL Betting Online: Oakland Raiders (+6.5).
