24/7 Wall St.: Major League Teams Americans Bet On The Most

2 of 24

NFL: 5. Oakland Raiders

Team value: #31
Attendance 2010: 371,448 (the lowest)
Pct. change attendance 2001 – 2010: -21.32% (3rd biggest decline)
W-L Last Ten Years: 58-102-0 (2nd worst)

Oakland is among the most storied franchises in the NFL. For nearly its entire history, the team had been either coached or owned and managed by Al Davis, who recently passed away. John Madden also coached the team for a decade. The team is the only NFL franchise to play in Super Bowls in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. More recently, the team has fallen on hard times, posting the second-worst record in the NFL between 2000 and 2010, behind only the Detroit Lions. The team has not had a season above .500 since 2002. Nevertheless, because of its history, it remains one of the most popular teams to bet on in football.
