Who’s more likely to bounce back — Raiders or Broncos?

Both coming off outright losses in Week 3 as the betting favorite, the Raiders and Broncos will be trying to keep pace with the division-leading Chiefs when they square off in Denver on Sunday. The Broncos had owned the Raiders for the first part of this decade, but the Raiders are starting to come around vs their divisional rival, picking up wins and covers in two of the last three games in this matchup.

Shark Bites
  • The Broncos are allowing the fewest rushing yards per game in the NFL — 59.7.
  • The Raiders are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games on the road.
  • The Raiders are 2-9 SU and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games against the Broncos.

With Denver tabbed as a small favorite in this one, it’s worth noting that the Raiders tend to get underestimated in divisional road games. They’re currently on a stretch that’s seen them go 24-9 ATS in their last 33 games when visiting other AFC West teams. Particularly, as an underdog in Denver, they’ve gone 8-3 ATS in their last 11 in that spot.

As for the Broncos, losing streaks are a bit of a rarity, as they’re 18-5 SU following a loss. They’re also a very tough out at home with a 24-6 SU record in their last 30 in Denver. They’ve allowed an average of 19 points per game in their two home games this season, which is up slightly from the 18.6 they allowed at home last season.

With the total for the game hovering at 46.5 points, bettors will be interested to know that the UNDER is trending coming into the game. It’s hit in three of the last four games between the teams and in five of the Raiders’ last six on the road.
