The Betting Line has Oakland at 13 point home UNDERDOGS AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD. The TOTAL is 42 points for Monday’s contest.
Don’t tell Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph there’s nothing at stake tonight between the two rivals. While Raiders coach Jon Gruden signed a ten year $100 million contract, Joseph needs to finish strong to try to keep his job.
The lone bright spot for the Broncos this season has been the production of rookie free agent running back Phillip Lindsey (991) rushing yards and was voted to the pro bowl. The University of Colorado product needs nine yards to get to 1,000 and gaining 114 would break the record for an undrafted rookie. It could happen against a Raiders defense that ranks last in the NFL allowing (146.4) yards per game on the ground.
Quarterback Case Keenum (3,396) passing yards has thrown 12 interceptions in his first season in the Mile High City. Denver holds the 13 overall draft pick as of today, and General Manager John Elway could be looking for a franchise signal caller.
Von Miller is the leader of a solid Broncos defense that allows opponents (21.4) ppg. They’re solid at all three levels. Denver allows (378.1) total yards per contest which is 15th in the league while the secondary is 3rd in defense-adjusted value over average (DOVA).
A key to a Denver win tonight is to establish a running game, but Joseph will do whatever to keep his job.
Bovada.Lv list the Denver Broncos at seven total wins for the win the 2018-19 season, two win makes a profit for those who went OVER.
Owner mark David recently fired General manager Reggie McKenzie making things more complicated in a dismal 2018 season. Fans haven’t boycotted nor have their been picket signs outside of the stadium, but when they traded Khalil Mack, the writing was on the wall. Jon Gruden has been the fall guy in this fiasco but who can blame him; he’s got the go-ahead to built the franchise the way he desires.
The bright spot in the season came in a December 9th home upset of Pittsburgh as 10′ point UNDERDOGS ATS. In week two this season Oakland let a twelve point lead slip away in a 20-19 loss to Denver as 5′ point road UNDERDOGS AGAINST THE POINT SPREAD.
Quarterback Derek Carr (3,697) passing yards has played well since the week seven bye mostly because he’s cut down on turnovers. Oakland averages (343.9) total yards per game but they’re familiar with the Denver defense. Tight end Jared Cook (848) receiving yards is the main weapon in the passing attack.
Emotion will either make or break the Raiders tonight in front of an environment which could resemble a funeral.
Bovada.Lv, list the Oakland Raiders at 7′ total wins for the win the 2018-19 season, UNDER bettors win as Oakland struggles to get to 4 or 5.
