Raiders vs. Broncos Free Pick
Odds: Oddsmakers have installed Kyle Orton and the Broncos 3-point favorites over Jason Campbell and the Raiders despite the fact that Oakland swept the AFC West last season. The over/under total this game is currently sitting at 41 points.
Line Movement: The Broncos opened as 1.5-point favorites when the line opened back in April, but the spread has steadily climbed over the past couple of months. The Broncos are now 3-point favorites in Vegas and at most books, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 41.5 points in Vegas after opening at 42.
Public Betting: Of the 37,000-plus wagers on tonight’s game, 58% of NFL public bettors currently favor the Broncos -3. This information is subject to change, however, so make sure you click on the link provided for updated public betting numbers.
NFL Free Pick: Take Oakland. According to latest NFL trends, the Raiders are 5-0 against the spread in their last five road games against the Broncos and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 meetings overall with Denver. The underdog is 7-3 against the number in their last 10 games overall, while the road team is 5-1 ATS in their last six meetings overall. Oakland lost Nnamdi Asomuhga in the offseason, but this team won’t be as bad as people think. Hue Jackson’s offense shouldn’t have much trouble moving the ball against a Denver defense that, over the years, is transitioning from a 4-3, back to a 3-4, back to a 4-3. Take the points.
