The Raiders are 4-1 against the over in their last five AFC matchups.
The Denver Broncos (3-6) host the Las Vegas Raiders (2-7) for an AFC West battle out of the basement this Sunday afternoon. The Broncos have opened as home favorites (-150), and the game total is 41.5.
Both teams are coming off losses, with the Raiders looking to snap a three-game skid. The Broncos are 2-2 at home, while the visiting Raiders have been 0-5 on the road this year. Both teams have underperformed expectations in what was expected to be a tough division.
Russell Wilson has struggled in his new zip code, and the Broncos have had a bumpy start under new head coach Nathaniel Hackett. After losing talented running back Javonte Williams in Week 4, it looks like the Broncos will now also be without sophomore WR Jerry Jeudy who was starting to click with Wilson.
