Game Analysis & Picks
The Broncos (2-1) are coming off of an all-time boring 11-10 win on Monday night over the 49ers where total points scored by quarter were 7-3-2-9. It goes without saying that it was a defensive battle led by Denver who forced 3 turnovers, had 4 sacks, and limited San Francisco to a single 3rd down conversion (1/10).
The winless Raiders (0-3) are already in desperation mode with odds stacked against them to make the playoffs. Dating back to 1979, only 6 teams have made the playoffs after an 0-3 start. This one is tough because Vegas is objectively a good team; their losses have been by a combined 13 points, none more than a single score. In the betting world there’s not many things better than backing a team facing a legitimate ‘must-win’ scenario.
The Broncos defense is no joke, holding opponents to 17-9-10 points through 3 games; REALLY good, with the highest game total Denver has been apart of this season at 33 points. Under 45.5 this afternoon is a no-brainer plus back the Raiders covering -2.5 in a must-win; game-winning FG maybe?
