Monday Night Odds: Broncos vs Raiders
Denver has been terrific in season openers, but not against the Oakland Raiders, throwing some bettors for a handicapping loop in the second Week 1 Monday Nighter.
They are 7-3 ATS in the past 10 Week 1 games but just 2-8 ATS in the past 10 against their hated AFC West rivals from Oakland, and betting volume has moved the line in favor of the Broncos, moving from even to -3 in the past few days.
Neither team is a Monday Night regular, but the NFL needed a late game for the MNF doubleheader and these are division rivals. The Raiders are just 1-7 ATS in their past 8 Monday Nighters according to the NFL Database here at OddsShark.com.
The Monday Night spread and total are far from the only ways to bet MNF as well. (See tons of props below and visit Bovada for hundreds more.) Both the best Raiders underdog line and the best UNDER line were at Bovada as of Monday morning, check the latest.
