Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders – Monday Night Football Betting Picks And Odds
When the Oakland Raiders take the field on Monday Night Football in their last season in Oakland, most of us will be looking for number 84.
How good will Antonio Brown be if he suits up for this divisional matchup against the Denver Broncos? The betting odds reacted to the 24/7 news cycle Brown has become since joining the Raiders. Let’s dive right in.
Broncos vs. Raiders Betting Odds – NFL Season Week 1
It’s been quite the roller coaster for the betting line of this game. Months ago, when it appeared on the board for the first time at MyBookie.ag, the Raiders were a 2.5-point favorite. It moved between 2 and 2.5 for weeks.
|-2 (-110)||Spread||+2 (-110)|
|O 42.5 (-110)||Total||U 42.5 (-110)|

But then Hard Knocks happened, and the drama with Antonio Brown started to be noisy during the news stream. Last week the betting line arrived at a Pick’em. By Thursday, the Broncos jumped as a 2-point favorite with a -110 price value.
There is still a couple of days before the game, and by how things have gone, anything can happen from now and until the game time hits the clock.
Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders Betting Preview
Denver is a refreshed team. The Broncos should not be similar to what they showed in the last couple of seasons.
New head coach Vic Fangio comes into town with the idea to get the defense back on track.
It’s the first time Fangio is an HC but is not his first rodeo in the NFL. John Elway also brought Joe Flacco in another attempt to find a decent quarterback to lead the team.
Flacco is washed in the eyes of many. I still think he has something left in the tank to at least steal some divisional games on prime time, just like this one.
Last season the Raiders defense was atrocious stopping the run; third-worst in the NFL to be exact. Not much has changed, and Oakland will have a tough time stopping RB Phillip Lindsay.
What Oakland Raiders Bring To The Game
The Raiders bring a lot of drama, let’s put it that way. Oakland has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. Antonio Brown has been with the team for a few months, and drama has surrounded his name about a helmet, frozen feet, and missing practices.
Whatever the Raiders are looking to be in week one, HC Jon Gruden believes he will accomplish it with the help of Brown. Even if AB has been nearly inexistent within this offense because of his off the field issues.
The problem for the Raiders is as good as Brown is, the offense remains limited in talent. That’s not a good matchup against what should be a solid Denver defense.
Broncos vs. Raiders Betting Prediction
The line might drop at Broncos -1 during the weekend, and that’s where you jump on Denver. I see the Broncos as a better team than the Raiders, but a road game on a Monday Night is always tricky.
Of course, if at some point you find the Raiders +3 line, you should jump that one as well.
