4 units on Denver PICK () (risk 4 to return 4)  RESULT: LOSS

It has been a long time since the Raiders have had to tackle a sizeable number like this. Most look back at last week and see Denver failing miserably against a weak Arizona team and will turn to Oakland here. Last week's poor performance is always good for some line value the following week and we get it here with Denver. What gets easily forgotten is Denver's 4-point loss at Kansas City two weeks ago, their 3-point loss to St. Louis three weeks ago and their 20-point win vs. what was then a hot Chiefs team. I think Denver comes into this one with a lot of fire as Oakland beat them 59-14 earlier in the season. They are going to be busting their butts to avenge that game. There is no doubt you will see a different Denver team on the field for this one. The Raiders aren't exactly playing great football and last week Jacksonville racked up over 200 yards rushing against them. The Raiders are bound to be a bit over-confident after destroying the Broncos early in the season. And, they have Kansas City and Indianapolis on deck, games that will get more of their attention than this one. Oakland is killing backers as a favorite at just 6-21 ATS in their last 27. Road teams have gotten the money in the last five in this series, with the Broncos 5-2 ATS in their last seven here. This is just too many points. Take Denver plus the points.
