DEN­VER over Oak­land by 1

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Page 14 1.800.playbook -

In Den­ver’s win over Seat­tle last week, LB Von Miller sacked Rus­sell Wilson three times, forced two fum­bles and re­cov­ered one in help­ing lead the Broncos past the Seahawks. It goes with what we feel will be the league’s best de­fense by sea­son’s end. And also a team that we think will lead a charge to the Su­per Bowl - a 50-1 long shot to win it all, but we like their chances. What we don’t like to­day, though, is yet an­other over re­ac­tion by Ve­gas to re­sults from open­ing week. Specif­i­cally, Can­tor Gam­ing had this line pegged as Den­ver -1 in their send out of lines for the 2018 NFL sea­son. With the Raiders drop­ping an egg Mon­day night to the Rams, the game now finds the Broncos a touch­down fa­vorite. Hey, this game is all about value, folks, and with it Oak­land jumps to the front of the class this week. Its mark in road openers, cou­pled with the Broncos’ record as fa­vorites against foes com­ing off a Mon­day night game, makes the dog an easy take in this divi­sion scram­ble.
