Broncos vs Raiders Prediction: Spread
This is about as perfect of a spread as it gets for a game like this. The Raiders struggled heavily against a good Bears defense and going against a Broncos defense that is statistically even better across the board, they are looking to have a long game.
The Broncos are also coming off of a tough loss where they actually struggled defensively against a poor Steelers offense. If that trend continues, the Raiders do have a chance at winning this game but I would guess that game is more of an anomaly rather than the normal.
- Free Prediction: Broncos cover -3.5
Broncos vs Raiders Prediction: MoneyLine
The Broncos are looking to bounce back after a poor defensive showing against the bland Steelers offense but I think that game is not the defense we will see for the rest of the season. Offensively the Broncos did fairly well against a very good Steelers defensive squad so they should look to put up at least 3 touchdowns on the Raiders.

The Raiders are also coming off of a tough loss against a Bears defensive squad where Derek Carr threw no touchdowns and an interception. If he struggled like that against a Bears team that is statistically seventh-best in the league then they are certainly going to have a rough go of it against a Broncos defense that is 2nd best.
- Free Prediction: Broncos -180
Broncos vs Raiders Prediction: Total
This game statistically should be a clear Broncos win by the stats. The Broncos boast a defense that is ranked 2nd in the league and an offense that ranks 18th while the Raiders have the 17th ranked defense and 21st offensively. Granted Broncos defense looked poor against the Steelers but this should be a good bounce-back game against a poor Raiders offense.
Like last year this is the perfect time for them to fall apart. They started strong but given the coaching situation that is currently happening in Las Vegas, this team will likely be worse than normal and struggle intensely with such a huge distraction for the organization.
