Betting lines and predictions for Broncos in Week 11
The Denver Broncos play yet another must win game at home against the Las Vegas Raiders. It’s also a homecoming for Josh McDaniels. If the Broncos win just one more game the rest of the season, it’s this coming week at home.
The Broncos face the Raiders, and as we know, the team is coached by Josh McDaniels, who was once coach of the Denver Broncos about 11 years ago. His time as head coached ended how a wet fart feels, and now he’s manning the Raiders, who are enjoying a worse season than Denver.
Denver is 3-6 and still is very mathematically in the playoff hunt. Record wise, they face an easier slate of games this week and next. They play the Panthers next week. Their focus is on the Raiders who usually play the Broncos very well.
The Raiders themselves are 2-7 and have not won a game away from home. The odds would likely tell you that Denver wins this.
How does Las Vegas think the Broncos will do on Sunday?
According to FanDuel, the home team is favored by 2.5 points. They are also favored on the moneyline with -148 odds. The over/under point total for this game is set at 41.5. Seeing as their last matchup combined for over 50 points, I’m personally taking the over.
If you’d want to make the most money from this game, betting on the Raiders to win outright or cover the spread is smart. In my weekly NFL parlay, I am actually only betting on the over for points.
I am staying far away from the 2.5 spread I’m not comfortable making a moneyline bet either. It’s too close of a game and I just have absolutely no faith in Denver’s offense to do anything notable at all.
Game odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
Broncos prediction for Sunday
The Raiders are without a couple of their best weapons in Darren Waller and Hunter Renfrow, but they are not as injured as the Broncos and have gotten better QB play from Derek Carr than the Broncos have from Russell Wilson.
Josh McDaniels is probably going to have his squad ready to go, but in terms of coaching, I’m not sure the Raiders are better coached than Denver. Ultimately, I think the Raiders edge this one out. Why should we expect anything different from Denver than we’ve seen all season?
They might put together two touchdown drives if they’re lucky.
