Re: 3rd Raikage and A Vs. SOME Akatsuki
Honestly, I think the akatsuki take this pretty easily. First off, raikages have shown no long range ninjutsu, so deidara could just take to the sky and spam bombs and krap. I'm pretty sure kakuzu's wind attack can get through the fourth's shroud and I'm pretty sure the fourth is going to have a really tough time if he has to go up against 4 akatsuki's at the same time.

If worse comes to worse kisame can use water dome, fuse with samehara and do the water prison shark dance technique. The third raikage has only shown techniques used because of his lightning armor, which will get absorbed if he gets close to kisame which he will have to do since he has only been shown to use close range attacks.
So yeah I vote the akatsuki
