Experts are slightly favoring the Raiders on the road in their meeting with the Dolphins.

The Sunday afternoon showdown in Miami is sure to attract plenty of attention as the two high-profile teams look to rebound from Week 1 losses. And not surprisingly, experts are split about whether the Miami Dolphins or Oakland Raiders will come out of Sun Life Stadium with the victory.

ESPN's panel of 12 experts seem to slightly favor the Raiders, as seven of 12 selected Oakland, to go along with both the AccuScore prediction and the ESPN Pick 'Em crowd. Steve Wickersham, who went an ESPN-best 12-4 in the first week, is going with the Raiders.

Of the eight experts over at CBSSports.com, three have selected the Dolphins to win at home, while five are certain the Raiders will not be polite guests in Miami and walk out with a win over the home team. Josh Katzowitz, who went a CBS-best 11-5 in Week 1, picked the Dolphins.

At Yahoo! Sports, two of their three experts — Mike Silver and Jason Cole — chose the Dolphins, while Les Carpenter picked the Raiders.
