Sunday NFL action Week One football features the Oakland raiders and the Tennessee Titans. The game to be played at LP Field in Nashville, TN. Kickoff is set for 1:00 pm EST, Oakland with high hopes looks to start on the winning side and Tennessee looks to not go winless over the first third of the season, as they did in 2009.
Oakland made a shrewd move in releasing their 1st Round, 1st Overall pick JaMarcus Russell and biting the embarrassment and financial’s and also traded for above-average pivot from Washington, Jason Campbell who is a ‘pro’ QB. But is he the answer as the Raiders try to solve themselves and build. I am still dumbfounded by comments from defensive stalwart Richard Seymour who said that this was the best team he has ever played on. ‘Ahem’ Patriots? Superbowls?
Tennessee Titans look to build on the miraculous, saving of a season, when they switched Quarterbacks last season. Still they boast arguably the best RB in Chris Johnson who amassed over 2000 yards last season.
The Titans still have a no-name defense that competes and dominates when needed. Plus a trade may be in the works to re-acquire Albert Haynesworth, so all is well in Nashville.

Raiders vs Titans Predictions for Week 1 Betting:
Spread Prediction (TOP PLAY) – With Vince Young catching his stride I like this team to show the Raiders that they are far from at their level. Though the number is set probably perfect. Jason Campbell hasn’t ever been a good road player and traveling from west to east will hurt this upcoming Raiders attack. Tennessee righting the ship and finishing up at 8-2 last season, is closer to their true identity. But Oakland will push for .500 status by seasons end. PREDICTION (Top Play) TITANS -6
Over Under Prediction – I feel a score of maybe 30-13 if all goes well. But I love these two defenses, so I am going on that as these teams are talented, but the unheralded talent of the Titans D may keep it close and around 30 points total. Campbell will get in the endzone if Oakland’s receivers can catch the ball. A fresh start will have these athletes hyped up and ready to make mistakes and bad judgements, tailored for some defensive football. PREDICTION – UNDER -40.5
