Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders NFL Free Play
1* Free Play on the Denver Broncos -11.
Denver is coming off a humiliating loss in New England and I think will take its frustrations out on the struggling Raiders this weekend. If history is any precedence, then the Broncos have to be loving their chances today, since Peyton Manning came to town Denver is 4-0 SU and 3-0-1 ATS in the series.
Losing against the Pats last week can be forgiven, but this is an important game as the team must now firmly put that effort behind them and get back to business. And besides the 43-21 setback, note that Denver is still fifth in the league in total offense, seventh in defense and first against the run, holding opponents to just 72 yards per game on the ground. And that doesn’t bode well for a Raiders offense which rely on its run game to help out its weak passing attack. Oakland ranks dead last in the league in total offense and rushing and 31st in scoring.
There is little doubt that if this game was being played at Mile High the Broncos would be a much bigger favorite (-17 perhaps?). Because of the way it lost last week, I think the Broncos comes in focused and will be able to cover this manageable spread.
