DENVER over Oakland by 1
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.
