Broncos at Raiders: Game notes

The Broncos scored 21 points in the fourth quarter for a second consecutive week. However, they weren’t able to pull out the victory last week at the Atlanta Falcons (34-27 loss) as they did in Week 8 vs. the Los Angeles Chargers (31-30 win).
The Raiders pulled out a nail-biter against the Chargers 31-26 in Week 9. Los Angeles scored a would-be go-ahead touchdown pass on the final play of the game, but an official replay ruled that the ball hit the ground, giving Las Vegas the victory.
Denver has failed to cover in five straight meetings with Las Vegas, four of which the Broncos were favorites.

Prediction

Broncos 29, Raiders 25

Money line (?)

This is the perfect time to buy low on the BRONCOS (+170) and sell high with the Raiders (-200). Las Vegas is going to be missing three offensive linemen, while Denver’s two best cornerbacks are returning from injury—A.J. Bouye and Bryce Callahan.

Both teams’ run games are roughly average, but the Broncos put more in the box to stymie the run against a beat-up Raiders offensive line and put their good cornerbacks on islands. Truthfully, I’m not in love with Denver’s offense. However, their RBs Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsay are both active for this game.

I “LIKE” BRONCOS (+170) for 1 unit.

Against the spread (?)

Las Vegas opened as a 5-point favorite before the market started betting the BRONCOS +3.5 (-110) down to its current price. The Raiders play their home games in Las Vegas and the town LOVES the Silver and Black. Yet, the market is betting against one of the biggest marketplaces (Las Vegas).

For the line to move a point-and-a-half in Denver’s direction tells me that someone really likes the Broncos here. That someone is probably very smart and does this football handicapping thing better than you or me. We should follow that money.

Most importantly we are on Denver to win outright, so let’s BET BRONCOS +3.5 (-110) for 2.5 units.

Over/Under (?)

Raiders QB Derek Carr has been fantastic this season—fifth in QB Rating, ninth in QBR and sixth in on-target percentage. Even though his offensive line is in tatters, I have faith he and head coach Jon Gruden are going to find some success in this game.

However, the Raiders defense isn’t exactly elite and the Broncos have put up a combined 58 points over the past two games. I only lean OVER 50.5 (-115) though, so bet at your own peril.
