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.
