Gas was slightly cheaper in 2012 (or maybe more expensive, I’m not going to look that up). A band of E.E. Cummings fetishists named fun. took the pop charts by storm. London hosted the Summer Olympics, completing its transformation from an expensive city to visit into a ludicrously expensive city to visit.

And in 2012, the Oakland Raiders were last a road favorite. That 24-game streak of road under-doggedness ends Sunday, as the Raiders currently are giving three points to the no-good horrible Bears in Chicago.

It’s also the first time the Raiders have been favored at all since Nov. 3, 2013, against the Eagles. That streak stretched 27 games. What a world we live in.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Look, most of these are silly. As you can see below, you can find one trend that contradicts another for every matchup. Then again, the federal ban on sports gambling itself is silly, so here we are. Enjoy the games, and best of luck to everyone.
