Denver at Las Vegas
Sunday 11/30 04:15 PM Eastern
4 units on Las Vegas +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64) RESULT: LOSS
What happened to Denver last week? They lost to a team that hadn’t won on the road in over 14 months! Rumor has it head coach Mike Shanahan has lost his luster with his players and he’s getting hammered by the media. Can he win without Elway? Doesn’t seem so. Meanwhile Oakland is actually playing pretty well. They nearly beat Kansas City last week after surprising Minnesota the week before. The Broncos have had the Raider’s number recently but Oakland’s got revenge on their side (they lost to Denver 10-31 in week 4) and can play crazy like a team with nothing to lose. Oakland is 14-3 ATS in recent revenge games. Denver will have one eye on next week’s big matchup vs. Kansas City – a team that Denver can’t help but think about after their close loss early in the season that triggered their downfall. Oakland keeps this close.
