2018 Oakland Raiders NFL Betting Odds and Schedule
Journeys end in lovers meeting, though betting sites for NFL may not care, not being the romantic type. The Oakland Raiders thrived under head coach Jon Gruden in the late 90s-early 2000s. first, they went 40-28 in four seasons. Second, they had their most successful season in ten years in 2000 (12-4). And third, they won their first division title since 1990 in 2001. Nonetheless, Raiders owner Mark Davis sent Gruden to Tampa Bay in 2002. This was part of a trade that included the Buccaneers’ 2002 and 2003 first-round draft picks, 2002 and 2004 second-round draft picks. And $8 million in cash.
The gamble seem to paid off as the Raiders made it to Super Bowl XXXVII in Bill Callahan’s first season as head coach. However, they didn’t count on one little thing. Hell hath no fury like a Gruden scorned. As it turns out, Gruden also led the Bucs to the Super Bowl in his first year. Gruden’s Buccaneers soundly beat the Raiders 48-21.

It’s been 10 years since Gruden coached an NFL team. And it’s been 16 years since his Super Bowl-winning season with the Bucs. Given the Raiders odds, betting sites for NFL certainly don’t expect Gruden to hit the ground running. And truly, Gruden may be an artifact of a bygone era. But then again, one hundred thousand years ago, a caveman was out hunting in the plains. He slipped and fell into a crevasse, where he was frozen solid. In 1988, he was discovered by scientists and was thawed out. He then attended law school and became…The Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer! So, yeah.
