NFL odds, Week 4: Raiders vs. Broncos

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Denver Broncos will be playing as favorites when the Oakland Raiders come to Denver.

The Denver Broncos are 6½-point favorites as they host the Oakland Raiders at Sport Authority Field in Denver on Sunday. Last week, the Broncos lost by six after closing as 1½--point underdogs to the Houston Texans.

The line opened with the Broncos as 5½--point favorites. As seen on both OddsShark and the SB Nation NFL odds page, for one book it has gone up to 7 points, but other lines have moved to 6½ as money has come in on the Broncos.

The over-under point total is set at 47.5 points, which matches up well with the two teams' scoring averages so far. Denver is averaging almost 26 points per game, while Oakland is averaging 20. The Raiders do, however, give up nearly 30 points per game.

Another factor against both the line and the over-under could be the run game. The Raiders are second-to-last in the league in rushing offense, averaging just 62 yards per game, while the Broncos are holding opponents to 98 yards per game, good for 13th in the league.
