Our Selection : The Broncos have been destroying teams this season with Manning picking on inexperienced corners and depleted secondaries. When mentioning current great defenses in the NFL you’d get run out of the bar if you put the Raiders on the list. However, this season they are playing very well. certainly the competition has not been strong with the Jaguars looking like the worst offense in the last decade and the Colts who look a bit lost this season. That being said, this will be the best defense the Broncos have met so far in the early season. Look for the Raiders to do just enough on offense to keep within the inflated point spread. Hey and it sure doesn’t help that start left tackle Clady is out for the Broncos.
Take the Raiders +16 points at 5Dimes and get reduced juice on every play.
