Betting on the Las Vegas Raiders
Without a doubt, the Raiders are one of the biggest disappointments of the season, and Derek Carr’s tears after the loss to the Colts proved it.
Injury and inconsistency have prevented this team from producing the results that were anticipated of them with the addition of Davante Adams, despite the offense sharing the 13th best yards per play average with 5.5 and the new yards per carry with 4.8.
However, the biggest disappointment is their defense. They have let three leads of more than 17 points go to waste this season and they are tied for third most yards allowed per play with a high average of 5.9.
Moreover, they have recovered the fewest fumbles in the league(6) and their secondary allows 7.1 net yards per pass, which is the second-highest figure in the circuit.
Betting on the Denver Broncos
If we talk about disappointments, of course the Broncos should also be included in the same bag as the Raiders.
Despite the excitement around the arrival of Russell Wilson, Denver’s offense is among the weakest in the league. After nine games, they are the team that has scored the fewest points this season with 131 and has gotten the third fewest first chances with 154. Additionally, with seven touchdowns through the air, they are the offensive with the fewest trips into the end zone with 20 attempts and only seven of them scored.
However, in addition to discussing the weak offense, we should also point out the excellent work of the defense In Week 4, the Raiders were the only offense to score more than 20 points against them. Also, they are the team with the fewest touchdowns allowed in the league with 149.
Moreover, they are the team that allows the least average yards per play (4.6), the one that averages the least net yards per passing play (4.6) and the one that has the best effectiveness defending in the red zone, allowing six TDs in 21 occasions for 28.6%.
The Raiders dominated the first game of the season between the two, but without important pieces of their offense available and virtually eliminated, this Sunday’s visit to The High Mile will be another blow for the Las Vegas team.
The Broncos’ defense is averaging just over 14 points allowed at home this season, and still have a slim hope of fighting for a wild card spot with a win over the inconsistent Raiders offense. The challenge will be determining whether Russell Wilson can work against one of the league’s weakest defenses, such as Las Vegas.
Prediction: Broncos to win (LV 16 – DEN 20).
