Oakland is heading into the game here with a win over the Chargers on the road. The win was not the cleanest, but it was one that saw the Raiders score 24 points and only allowed 17 points. The win allowed the Raiders to improve to 7-8 on the year with a dismal 2-5 away record.
The offense for the Raiders has been fairly weak with only 19.6 points a game being scored. The offense has gained a total of 366 yards a game. When it comes to playing defense the Raiders have given up 27.6 points a game, but have allowed a total of 384 yards a game.
The Broncos are heading into the game here after picking up a decent win over the Detroit Lions. The win came in Denver and it was only by 10 points, but it was a decent win for Denver who had their own struggles on the year. With that last win the Broncos improve their record to 6-9 on the year and have a 4-3 mark on their home field.
This year Denver has only managed to get 17.1 points a game scored. The Broncos have only managed to get 319 yards of total offense per game. The Broncos have allowed 20.3 points a game, but when the defense is on the field the Broncos have allowed only 350 yards a game.
- Oakland are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games.
- The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Oakland's last 6 games.
- The total has gone OVER in 5 of Denver's last 7 games.
- Denver are 6-13 SU in their last 19 games.
While the Broncos are facing a struggling Raiders team at home, the Raiders do have a good chance of bringing home the win in this game. The Raiders picked up a solid win over the Chargers and have shown that they are a consistent team versus Denver who has shown time and time again to be inconsistent and unable to really do much in the games when faced with a difficult team. The good news, though, is the Raiders defense is horrible and that leads me to think the Broncos will win this and cover. Final Score Prediction, Denver Broncos win and cover 28-21.
