The Broncos have lost two of their last three games, including a loss to the Bengals in their last game by a score of 15-10. Denver out gained the Bengals in this game but had one turnover and went 0-1 on fourth down in the loss. Teddy Bridgewater got knocked out of this game with a concussion and will not play this week. Denver is averaging 20.4 points per game and is giving up 17.4 points per game against, while also averaging 217.4 passing yards per game and 123.8 rushing yards per game. Drew Lock has completed 55% of his passes for 227 yards, 1 touchdown, and 2 interceptions for the Broncos.

Denver is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games against the AFC and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 December games. The under is 7-1 in Denver’s last 8 games. Las Vegas is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games. The over is 6-1 in Las Vegas’ last 7 AFC West games. The under is 8-2 in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings. 

These two teams are pretty even coming into this game, which should result in a great game to watch. Both of these teams are clinging onto their hopes of making the playoffs, but need to win this game to stay in contention. The Bronco’s will be playing with their backup quarterback, but go up against a defense that is allowing just under 27 points per game. Las Vegas has a good passing attack, but is going up against a pretty solid defense. I think the Raiders offense is going to be able to do more in this game with Carr throwing the ball, so I am taking them to win.
