The Jacksonville Jaguars are four-point underdogs in their Week 7 road game against the Oakland Raiders.

The Jacksonville Jaguars take on the Oakland Raiders in Week 7 of the 2012 NFL season, and the latest odds have the Raiders favored by four points. Both teams are 1-4 and are coming off a loss, though Jacksonville has had their bye week to recover.

The total for the game is given at 43.5 points, a number reached in only two of Jacksonville's games this season. Both teams are soft on defense: Jacksonville is giving up an average of 27.6 points per game and Oakland is yielding 29.6, putting both at the bottom of the league. They rank similarly on offense, with the Jags posting a league-worst 13.0 points per game, and the Raiders averaging just 17.4.

Jacksonville entered its bye week following a 41-3 loss to the Chicago Bears that saw Maurice Jones-Drew gain only 56 yards on 12 carries. He might have a better day against the Raiders, who are giving up an average of 111.8 yards per game. Oakland enters the game having suffered a narrow defeat to one of the best teams in the NFL, posting season-highs on offense but still coming up short in the 23-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
