As Jeff Fogle writes, we should marvel at how few teams have had disastrous point-spread performances so far in 2018.

Unfortunately, two of them play each other tonight as Week 9 kicks off. The 49ers host the Raiders (8:20 p.m. ET, FOX, SiriusXM 204 — yes, that’s VSiN! — with Brent on the play-by-play.)

San Francisco is worst in the league at 25% cover rate. Oakland is at 29%, joined by the Atlanta Falcons.

That’s a grand total of three teams (out of 32) at 2-5 or worse. Six teams are two games below .500, exactly 3-5 ATS right now. But that hunk could be strongly influenced by randomness rather than registering as pure “market misses.”

More from Jeff, including the teams with stellar ATS records, here.

The lines are out for Week 9 of the SuperContest.
