Denver at Las Vegas

Sunday 11/26 04:25 PM Eastern

1 unit on Denver +5 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91)  RESULT: LOSS

I'm not sure how much worse things could get in Denver as the Broncos started the season in good shape, but six straight losses has turned this franchise upside down as they are not used to losing. You have to go all the way back to 1990 to find the last time a Denver team lost six straight, and just for the record, they won their next game. Last week they deserved to win, out-gaining Cincinnati 341-190, but two turnovers did them in. New England beat them by 25 points, but the Broncos were out-gained by a little more than 50 yards, indicative of a much closer game, but again, two turnovers did them in. Denver has made 17 turnovers in the six game losing streak, and since many turnovers are random they are now a very under-valued tea, as it is not likely they will continue to turn the ball over more than three times per game. Things have not come up roses for the Raiders either as they have played way under the line, covering just one game since September 17th. You know you're in trouble when you have scored 17 or fewer points six times, and then in your last six you have given up 30 points or more four times. Oakland has a problem on both sides of the ball, so take the points on Denver.
