Oakland Raiders Have Worst Odds to Win Super Bowl Next Season

A depleted roster and uncertainty at the quarterback position have landed the Oakland Raiders with the unfortunate prize of the worst odds to the win the Super Bowl in 2014.

According to Pregame.com, the Raiders have a 200/1 chance to win it all next season, which are worse than the Houston Astros’ odds of winning the World Series.

Oakland is actually tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars for the dubious honor, so at least they’re not the only sufferers.

Can they put all the doubters to shame with a solid season? That certainly remains to be seen, as GM Reggie McKenzie has decided to slowly rebuild the struggling the franchise with a flurry of moves this offseason.

    I don’t think any knowledgable football fan thinks the Raiders have any shot at 6 wins, much less a Super Bowl. Why state the obvious? Slow news day?

    • goldenbaysports

      You could say that. Just found it interesting that Vegas believes they’re the worst team in the NFL.

    HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND, WE DON’T NEED YOU TO TELL THE RAIDER
    FANS THIS BS!! Try writing something postive, because there is a lot of postive
    things going on for the raiders this season. RAIDER NATION FOREVER!!

    • goldenbaysports

      “A lot of positive things”? LOL please name one.

  • Pridenpoise

    I think a three to five win season is in the cards for the Raiders this year. I am ok with them not winning a lot of games, as long as they are playing competitive football, and improving from week to week. I think next season is when we will be able to start to look forward to this franchise really turning the corner and being a decent team again, and I for one can’t wait for that, it’s been a long 10 years.

    • goldenbaysports

      What makes you think they’re turning the corner?

      • R8RSRULE

        1) A solid draft, by most accounts
        2) A return to a scheme that fits their best player
        3) An excess of cap space next year
        4) Not firing the coach after one season, continuity
        5) Getting cheap FA’s that want to play football and are not looking for only a paycheck
        Sure, they’re not going to even sniff the playoffs but I believe that they’re not going to just lay down and lose every game. If they’re competitive then I’ll be good with that, which is turning the corner.

          At least someone thinks the way I do. Cheers Mariano.

        • goldenbaysports

          Here’s what I think:
          1) Solid draft, but they didn’t have a lot of picks and still have a lot of needs to address.
          2) Their best player can/will get injured again and now who do you have left?
          3) Agree with the cap space, but it has to be spent wisely unlike in recent years
          4) Agree as well, but is this coach really the best fit, and will he be given the boot if they have another bad season?
          5) Why do you think they were able to land these free agents for cheap? Because they’re washed-out veterans that nobody else wants.

          • Bob Yost

            1 Solid draft- yeah kinda: turned 6 picks into 10 filled many needs! what do you want FFS?!! No way all could’ve been addressed in a single draft.
            2)Past injuries don’t indicate future ones, any more than a string of healthy seasons indicates continued health, but, Reese is still around, just in case.
            3)wow! Thank you Capt obvious! You might have noticed that Reggie has a slightly different approach than Al Davis did.
            4) At last,… a valid point! I’m not convinced that Allen is the right coach for this team, but its good to see a little patience from the front office for once.
            5) Say what you want but just because a FA signs for a contract that is affordable doesn’t mean he’s “washed up” as we saw last season with Phillip Wheeler. I for one feel that Reggie has had a really great run in FA signings & the draft, which has left the team much improved & with a far greater chance to compete. The Raiders will surprisea LOT of people this year!

            Alright, Mr. Optimism. Just letting you know that we don’t go “rah rah” on the home team all the time. When they deserve credit, we give credit. If they deserve criticism, we give criticism. In recent history, the Raiders have not been a good team and there is a lot of skepticism surrounding them. Anyone outside of die-hard fans will agree with that, and die-hard fans will support and defend the team no matter what.
            So we’re not going to just applaud them for every single move they make.

            my friend you have no sex life.. do you?

            GO RAIDERS!!!

          • goldenbaysports

            What does that have anything to do with my sex life? You are just unbelievable, sir.

          • Pridenpoise

            I am a die hard fan, and the last thing I do is rah rah every move they make. As a matter of fact I have been highly critical of a lot of the things that have been done with the new regime, and the old, with that being said, I still think there are brighter days ahead they won’t be this year but next year I think we will start to see real improvement. I think they have hit rock bottom and there is no where to go but up.

      • Pridenpoise

        See what The guy below me said I couldn’t have said it better my self And if you knew anything about next year you wouldn’t have to ask the question.

        • goldenbaysports

          If your definition of “turning the corner” is 3-5 wins, then sure, you’re correct. Bottom line, and you have to admit, they have one of the worst rosters in the NFL in terms of just pure talent and skill. And it all starts with the QB position where they don’t have a single proven QB on their roster.

          • Bob Yost

            Gotta start somewhere, EVERY QB starts off his career “unproven” regardless of how well they performed in college, (J. Russell, R. Leaf, & on & on) or what rd. they were drafted (R.Wilson, 3rd rd. T. Brady 7th, etc) we shall see.

      • Bob Yost

        What makes you think they are not?

    There are too many questions and not enough answers to give a fair assessment on the Raiders this season. Who knew Rich Gannon would be a Pro Bowler? Who knew the Raiders would struggle this long after getting to the Super Bowl? The Raiders have the tools to lead the league in rushing. (McFadden did lead the league in rushing in this type of offense two years ago before his injury.) They also have enough inexperience to make them the worst team in the league.Time will tell.

    • goldenbaysports

      And who’s backing up McFadden if/when he goes down again?

  • disqus_l6u0E2NqD5

    IF YOU DONT BELIVE IN RAIDERS GO CHEER FOURTHY GAYNERS.

    STOP MESSING AROUND WITH A TEAM YOU DON’T LIKE…

    JARHEADS!
    GO RAIDERS!!

    • goldenbaysports

      I never said I don’t like them, I’m just stating the truth. And that was a totally inappropriate reference to the 49ers, but because your comment was so hilarious I’m not deleting it.
