Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders Odds

Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders odds are among the most unstable as we have two teams that people really don't know quite what to make of.  70 percent of the spread betting action was going the Broncos way but Oakland backers were all over this game as well.  BetUS.com offered the Broncos at -1 ½ on the road.  Some of the sharper shops featured a line of -1.  Raiders fans might want to bet this game at Bookmaker.com though, which had odds of Oakland +2.

The Broncos miraculous final seconds win in Cincinnati raised eyebrows then they went on to dismantled the Cleveland Browns at home.  It's easy to say that Denver has played two subpar clubs but the Bengals beat up on the Packers in Green Bay this past week.

Then you have Oakland winning in Kansas City last week after nearly stealing one from the heavily favored Chargers the week prior.

Could it be that both these teams might actually have something going for them in 2009?

In the Broncos case, the concerns mostly focused on that team's defense.  The offense was believed to be decent coming into 2009 but with a questionable quarterback in Kyle Orton. 

The defense is proving to be quite good and this can really carry Denver far if all the other pieces come together. 

"This is a team that continues to gain great amounts of confidence," Don Shapiro of Gambling911.com points out.

Pass-rusher Elvis Dumervil tied a franchise record with four sacks -- all in the second half -- and linebacker Andra Davis had 10 tackles against his old team in leading Denver to a 27-6 win Sunday.

Dumervil also forced a fumble as the Broncos (2-0) caused three turnovers and bottled up Brady Quinn.

"Man, that was amazing. You don't see a guy get four sacks in one half," Davis marveled. "He really turned it on."

The Oakland Raiders must also be feeling mighty confident about themselves these days (as are fans to some extent). 

Over the past two seasons, these teams have alternated wins.  Last year, they alternated blow out wins, on the road no less.  Denver had won 6 of the last 7 before this time. 

Oakland, off a win against a division rival, is 14-20 SU since 1993 and were 1-3  SU last season. 

The Raiders are 2-11 ATS in their last 13 games as a home underdog of 0.5-3.0.  They are 4-13 ATS since 1993.

They are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games after accumulating less than 150 yards passing in their previous game.

The Broncos are 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.

The Broncos are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games on grass.

Denver is 8-20-1 ATS in their last 29 games following a S.U. win.

They are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games after allowing less than 150 yards passing in their previous game.

And Denver is 3-14-1 ATS in their last 18 vs. AFC West.

The SU performance after a previous week's SU win stat for Oakland is especially telling coming into this week but more so the 4-13 ATS record for the current home line since 1993.

Gambling911.com is liking Denver at -1 ½ this week. BetUS.com offered the Broncos at -1 ½ on the road.
