Jason Campbell continues to prove why he should be the starting quarterback for the Oakland Raiders once Bruce Gradkowski returns from injury. For now though, Raiders head coach, Tom Cable, continues to stand behind his decision of making Gradkowski the starting quarterback despite Campbell’s back-to-back great performances.
Regardless of who starts for the Raiders at quarterback, the real story has been their stingy defense as of late. The Raiders smashed the -3 point spread while keeping the game UNDER 42 points. A $110 bet on the Raiders covering the -3 point spread would have earned you $210.
