Betting On The Las Vegas Raiders To Win The Super Bowl
The idea of betting on the Oakland Raiders to win the Super Bowl is all but obsolete. The team will become the Las Vegas Raiders in the 2020 season. The Raiders became an official organization in 1960 and have won three Super Bowls’ in that time. As the Oakland Raiders, their 2019 season could’ve been better. They finished at 7-9 for the year and did not move beyond their regular season schedule to get to the playoffs. Head coach Jon Gruden is already making changes to his coaching staff with the hiring of defensive line coach Rod Marinelli. The two were able to get Tampa Bay a Super Bowl win when they worked together with the Buccaneers and Gruden hopes to do the same thing again.
Placing a wager on the Raiders to win a Super Bowl championship may not be that bad of an idea. With new coaches and a new city, it could give the team a makeover they so desperately need. Hopefully not the kind of makeover you’ll find on the Vegas Strip but a makeover nonetheless. With all the freshness that is being breathed into the franchise going into the 2020 season, a fourth Championship ring would certainly be welcome. It would also help the staff and players better fit into their new glitzy over the top environment with a big shiny ring adorning their fingers.
Las Vegas Raiders And COVID-19
The Las Vegas Raiders have seen three of their defensive players opt out of the season due to coronavirus concerns. Those players are defensive back, D.J. Killings, defensive end, Jeremiah Valoaga, and linebacker Ukeme Eligwe. Other than those three opting out, there is currently just one player on the teams Injured Reserve/COVID-19 list and that is defensive lineman, Maurice Hurst.
As for fans at the games, the team has announced that they will be having their inaugural season held with zero fans at their home games. Those that purchased season tickets will have them rolled over to next season.

They have finally made their move to Las Vegas and are looking to lean on some of the younger talent to carry them out of the hole that they are in.

Raiders Playoff Appearances
In their 60 years of existence, the Raiders have made the playoffs 22 times with their first time coming in 1967.

Raiders Division Championships
