49ers vs Raiders Prediction
49ers 33, Raiders 17
This 49ers vs Raiders matchup has blowout written all over it. Amid San Francisco’s eight-game winning streak, they have won all of those games by at least six points with six double-digit point blowouts mixed in.
The 49ers dominate inferior teams like the Raiders. 4-2 in their past six games, the Raiders have shown some fight.
But they have lost two of their past three to the Steelers and Rams while getting lucky with an improbable win over the Patriots. They should be 0-3 in their past three, in theory.
What is notable is that in those two losses, the NFL’s 12th-best scoring offense was held to fewer than 16 points in both of them. If the Rams and Steelers’ defenses can hold Derek Carr‘s offense in check, it could spell doom for that side of the ball against the 49ers’ defense, which is the stingiest in the NFL.
