The point spread was initially a pick ’em when it was released. However, that changed after how poorly the Raiders looked on Sunday Night Football last week versus the Washington Redskins. Losing by 17 on the road in primetime almost immediately shifted the line in Denver’s favor.
According to SportsBook Review, Denver will be laying three points at home to visiting Oakland. The associated moneylines for this game are Denver -180 and Oakland +160. This game’s over/under comes in at a combined 44 points.
Point Spread: Denver -3
Moneylines: Denver -180, Oakland +160
Las Vegas thinks that this game would be a pick ’em at a neutral site. Since it is a home game for the Broncos, they will get the slight nod in this one. There are even some point spreads out there that have the Broncos laying as much as 3.5 points to visiting Oakland.
The over/under is a low one since Las Vegas feels that Denver’s defense will dictate the pace of this game. While the Raiders’ defense isn’t elite, the over/under might indicate that the Broncos’ offense isn’t going to be putting up a ton of points either. Expect a tight, low-scoring game in this one.
