    Las Vegas Raiders History

    The Raiders who were once a strong feature in the postseason throughout the early days, have not been able to live up to the heights they once had. The Raiders who began their journey in Oakland in 1960 have for the most part been starved of mainstream success, as they have been based in Oakland, Los Angeles, Oakland (again) and now have moved permanently to Las Vegas ahead of the 2020 season. 

    This was especially evident in the Raiders first three years in the AFL as they managed to win only nine games from 1960 to 1962, while losing 33 games (they won six games in the 1960 season, two games in the 1961 season and one game in the 1962 season), which prompted the franchise to reevaluate their stance. 

    After winning six games in three years it prompted the Raiders to sign Al Davis for the 1963 season and he instantly changed the culture of the team. It didn’t take long for Davis to implement change in the squad as by the end of his first season in charge he led them to a 10-4 record overcoming a one win season the year prior as it earned him Coach of the Year honours. 

    Davis left for the 1966 season, but came back after a stint at being on the commissioner for the AFL, and began where he left off but this time he turned the franchise into a prominent feature in the postseason. 

    By 1967 they got their first real chance at being a successful franchise as they made it to the second ever Super Bowl in Super Bowl II, after posting a 13-1 record which saw them play in the playoffs for the first time. 

    They met the Green Bay Packers in the Super Bowl after defeating Houston Oilers in the conference championship, but they couldn’t get their hands on the trophy as they were defeated by the Packers. 

    Despite the Super Bowl loss, the Raiders used that as a platform to build on from 1968 to 1980, when they only missed the playoffs three times (1971, 1978 and 1979). After losing three consecutive conference finals in 1973, 1974 and 1975, the Raiders finally managed to appear in their second Super Bowl for Super Bowl XI. 

    Unlike in Super Bowl II, the Raiders had their first taste of NFL glory when they captured the Super Bowl XI with a win over Minnesota Vikings. Three years later, the Raiders were once again crowned Super Bowl champions as they beat the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl XV. 

    Two years after their Super Bowl success the Raiders were on the move to Los Angeles where they would spend 12 years. But the move didn’t affect them the slightest as in the second year in their new home they made the Super Bowl for the third time and made no mistake as they clinched their third Vince Lombardi trophy defeating the Washington Redskins 38-9 in Super Bowl XVIII. 

    They made the playoffs the following two years, but could only manage a wildcard berth, with the rest of the 80s not seeing much time in the postseason. That changed by the start of the 90s, as the closest they came to another Super Bowl birth was in 1990 when coach Art Shell (who was in his second season, coaching the team from 1989 to 1994) led them to the Conference Championship where they fell to the Buffalo Bills. 

    Nearing the end of their stay in Los Angeles the Raiders only managed to make two more playoff appearances in 1991 and 1993, but crashed out in the wildcard and divisional round. By 1994 the Raiders moved back to their original home in Oakland, and this time they played in a renovated stadium with a new training base, however, with their first season back they missed the playoffs. 

    Fortunes started to come by the change of the millennium as the Raiders returned to the playoffs after a six year absence, but couldn’t win the Conference Championship in 2000 to make it to another Super Bowl. 

    Two years later, the Raiders would capture their third division championship in a row after ending the regular season with an 11-5 record, en route to the Super Bowl XXXVII, defeating New York Jets and Tennessee in the process, but fell short when it mattered the most going down to Tampa Bay. 

    It would be another long wait before the Raiders hopeful saw any sort of postseason action, as the Raiders returned to the playoffs in 2016 ending a 14 year drought. As it turned out it wasn’t worth the wait as they got done in the wild card round by Houston Texans. 

    The Raiders ended their last season in Oakland with a 7-9 win loss record, as they missed the playoffs for the third consecutive time, before their move to Las Vegas for the 2020 NFL season. 

    Expert 2020 / 2021 Picks & Preview on Las Vegas Raiders

    If you are a fan of the Las Vegas Raiders then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2020 / 2021 season. Do the Las Vegas Raiders have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2021? Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Las Vegas Raiders:

    Preview on Las Vegas Raiders coach: Jon Gruden

    Now in his second stint as coach of the Raiders, Jon Gruden has had a journeyed NFL career. After a four-year stint and two playoff appearances in Oakland between 1998 and 2001, Gruden was head hunted to take charge of Tampa Bay for the 2002 season, leading the Buccaneers to their inaugural Super Bowl Championship in just his first season. 

    After being fired by the Buccaneers, Gruden re-joined the Raiders in 2018, and is yet to have a winning season. The Raiders will be coming into injury free, and with one of the best offensive lines in the NFL, giving franchise QB Derrick Carr more opportunity to create a play. 

    Competing against the #1 ranked Chiefs, winning the division seems like an unrealistic goal. However, with a clean bill of health, and a fresh start in Las Vegas, Gruden and the Raiders should be making a push for the playoffs.

    Preview on Las Vegas Raiders  Offensive Weapon: Josh Jacobs, RB

    Coming off a stellar rookie season, Josh Jacobs will be looking to establish himself as one of the AFC’s top running backs in 2020. Playing through a chunk of 2019 with a fractured shoulder, Jacobs rushed 1150 yards for 7 touchdowns in just 13 games, now that he is healthy, Jacobs is set to have a bigger impact receiving the ball as well as maintaining his elite standards as a rusher. 

    If both Jacobs and quarterback Derrick Carr can string together 16-game seasons, expect the Raider offence to push the team towards a playoff position out of the AFC, and to see Jacobs put up similar numbers to the league’s best running backs, making him a considerable chance to lead the league in rushing yards, after finishing eight in 2019 from just 13 games.  

    Preview on Las Vegas Raiders Defensive Weapon: Cory Littleton, LB

    After four years with the Los Angeles Rams, Cory Littleton was one of the Raiders most sought after acquisitions in the 2020 offseason. In 2019, Littleton set career highs in combined tackles (134), forced fumbles (2), and fumbles received (4), as well as bringing in 2 interceptions and 3.5 sacks. 

    Littleton’s impressive numbers in 2018 and 2019, earned him a three year $36 million deal with the Raiders. At just 26 years of age, Littleton’s athleticism and playmaking ability will be a huge addition to the 2019 Raiders 24th ranked defence.

    Las Vegas Raiders Betting & Odds History

    The Raiders began their last season in Oakland with a 7-9 win loss record, improving on their four win season the previous year. The Raiders were always in the top 20 when it came to against the spread, ranking 16th in the overall format with a 8-8-0 record, 17th when they were the home team with a 3-4-0 record and were 20th when they were the away side with a 4-4-0 record. 

    When narrowing it down to their division (AFC West), they were third in the overall against the spread standings, third when they were the home team and fourth when they were on the road. 

    When looking at the over/under they were out of the top 20 as they were ranked 24th in the overall over/under with a record of 7-9-0, 24th when they were the home team with a record of 3-4-0 and 26th when they were on the road with a 3-5-0 record. In the AFC West they were fourth in the overall over/under record, third when they were the home team and fourth when they were the away team. 

    The Raiders began their season valued +8000 on September 9, two days before their opening game win against Denver, however, even after the win their value spiked up to +9333. 

    The next two matches would prove costly as the Raiders went into the clash with Kansas City valued at +13333, and by 24 September (a day after back-to-back losses from Kansas City Chiefs and Minnesota Vikings) the odds went up to +125000. The Raiders bounced back with wins over Indianapolis Colts on September 30 and Chicago on October 7, which saw their odds decrease to +9333 by October 8. 

    The Raiders had their lowest odds for the season marked at +6000 during the bye week, but after the break the Raiders once again suffered a two game losing streak and by October 30 their value skyrocketed to +12000. The Raiders though somehow managed to respond with a three game winning streak from November 4 to November 18, and by November 19 their value decreased to +6200. 

    However, the Raiders suffered a four game form slump losing to New York Jets, Kansas City Chiefs, Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars and by December 17 they were marked at +100000. A win over the Los Angeles Chargers wasn’t even enough to turn the tables as by December 24 they finished the season with +43333.
