After Carson Palmer Trade, Raiders Get A Boost From Vegas

New, comments

The Oakland Raiders opened up the week as 3.5 point favorites over the Kansas City Chiefs and our odds expert, Steve, talked all about the line. Those odds came at a time when we thought Kyle Boller would be leading the bad guys on Sunday after Jason Campbell broke his collarbone.

A day after that line came out, the Raiders made a big-time moving trading for Carson Palmer. He's expected to be on the field starting for the Raiders this weekend which has shifted the line.

After the Palmer trade, the Raiders have received a boost from Vegas as the line at many sports books now shifts to 4.5 points.

So a Carson Palmer that hasn't played in a game in 10 months and has one practice under his belt is good for one more point in Vegas than a Boller-led team.

Steve will be back on Sunday morning to take one last look at the line before the game kicks off.
