Raiders vs Broncos Predictions & Odds

Posted: Nov 15, 2022Last updated: Nov 17, 2022

In one of the more underwhelming matchups of the week, we’ll see the 3-6 Denver Broncos play host to the 2-7 Las Vegas Raiders. Both of these teams lost last week and are looking to bounce back. They’ve also both struggled this year in what was expected to be a very tough division.

Derek Carr and Russell Wilson have both not lived up to expectations. Wilson has to be one of the biggest busts of the season. Carr is coming off a heartbreaking loss at home to the Colts and their new head coach Jeff Saturday.

After losing their talented young running back, Javonte Williams, back in Week 4, the Broncos are now expected to be without wide receiver Jerry Jeudy. Between the injuries and the struggles of Wilson, this might be a bit of an ugly matchup.

Raiders vs Broncos Odds

As of Tuesday morning, the Broncos are the early home favorites by 2.5 points. Seeing as both teams have struggled this year, it makes sense that the home team would open up as slight favorites, less than a field goal at that.

Take a look at the best Raiders odds and Broncos odds for the 2022 NFL season.

Raiders vs Broncos Implied Totals

Broncos 22, Raiders 19.5

The Broncos come into this one as the early favorites. Though just by 2.5 points, the Raiders will be underdogs on the road. The total is expected to be 41.5 points over at BetFred Sportsbook, making this one of the lower point totals on the slate.

Raiders vs Broncos Prediction

Broncos 20, Raiders 17

These teams played back in Week 4 in Las Vegas. The Raiders won that matchup 32-23, while Carr didn’t throw a single touchdown pass. Wilson on the other hand, had his best game of the year, throwing for two touchdowns and running for another.

Both of these AFC West teams have struggled offensively this year. As for Denver, their defense has excelled as they give up just 16.6 points per game this year, which is the lowest in the NFL.

The Raiders have struggled under new head coach Josh McDaniels, and their defense gives up 25.1 points per game, which is the fifth-worst mark in the NFL.

I’m expecting this one to be a fairly low-scoring contest as the Broncos’ stout defense should slow down Carr and the Raiders’ offense. The Broncos have given up just 1,570 passing yards this year, the fewest in the NFL.

Raiders vs Broncos Best Bets

Broncos -2.5 (-115) at BetFred Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

The Broncos are looking to bounce back after losing on the road to the Titans, 17-10. Wilson threw the ball a season-high 42 times, completing just 21 of those passes. He threw one touchdown to Jalen Virgil for 66 yards, his only target of the day.

The Broncos’ defense will step up in this one and the Raiders are looking as bad as ever this year. The Raiders receivers are depleted outside of Davante Adams and Carr seems simply defeated after his post-game interview after last week’s loss to the Colts.

The Broncos’ defense just held Derrick Henry to 19 carries for 52 yards and no touchdowns. Look for them to contain Josh Jacobs and the running game.  I’m taking the Broncos to win this one at home by at least a field goal.

Under 41.5 Points (-110) at BetFred Sportsbook

WAGER: 0.5 Units

Both of these offenses have struggled this year and I expect that trend to continue. While the total in their first matchup was 55 points in Week 4, I’m expecting the defenses to step up and the Broncos’ defense is just looking better each week.

Between Carr’s struggles, the Broncos’ defense, and the injuries to the Denver offense, look for this one to be fairly low-scoring and the under to hit.
