Denver Broncos at Las Vegas Raiders Preview & Picks


Las Vegas are backed to get their first win on the board.

Denver may have a better record, but they have been leaning heavily on their defense so far.

Their offense has been abysmal and while the Raiders’ unit is not firing, it has shown more promise.

It has certainly shown enough to suggest it can outscore Denver, so we are backing the home team.

  • Las Vegas Raiders have won the last 4 meetings
  • Las Vegas Raiders are averaging 21.3 points per game
  • Denver Broncos are averaging just 14.3 points per game
  • Denver Broncos are 2-5-0 ATS in their last 7 games
  • The Under has cashed in all 3 of Denver’s games so far

Head To Head


  • Las Vegas Raiders lead the all-time series 69-54-2
  • Las Vegas Raiders won 17-13 when the teams last met in December 2021

Denver Broncos Form


Denver have had huge problems on offense so far, but that has not prevented them from going 2-1.

The Broncos suffered a 17-16 defeat at Seattle on opening night, but rebounded to beat Houston 16-9 in their home opener.

They then made it back-to-back wins last weekend, edging San Francisco 11-10 at home.

QB Russell Wilson has struggled in his first few games as a Bronco, going 63/106 for 743 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

While the passing game has faltered, Courtland Sutton is the team’s leading receiver with 291 yards through three games.

Out of the backfield, Javonte Williams has 253 yards from scrimmage, while Melvin Gordon has 180 all-purpose yards and the sole rushing TD.

The offenses struggles have put pressure on the defense to deliver, and so far they have.

The Broncos are second in the league in points allowed per game, giving up just 12.0 per game through the first three weeks.

They rank #3 in the NFL in yards allowed per game (251.3) and are in the top half of the league in takeaways per game (1.3).

Las Vegas Raiders Form


Las Vegas have made a bad start to the Josh McDaniels era, going 0-3 through the first three weeks.

The Raiders opened with a 24-19 defeat at the Los Angeles Chargers, and then blew a late lead to lose 29-23 in overtime to Arizona.

Further disappointment followed last weekend too, as a fourth-quarter fightback fell short in a 24-22 defeat in Tennessee.

QB Derek Carr has had a rough ride, going 73/120 for 850 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions.

Big offseason signing Davante Adams has 189 yards and three TDs through his first three games as a Raider, but he is not the leading receiver.

Mack Hollins leads the way for Las Vegas with 240 yards and one touchdown.

In the backfield, Josh Jacobs has 192 yards on the ground and a further 49 through the air, but he is yet to hit paydirt this season.

While the offense has underwhelmed, the defense has been unable to carry the load.

The Raiders have allowed 25.7 points per game to rank just #24 in the league, and have given up 376.3 yards per game to rank #21.

They have not been forcing takeaways either – averaging just 0.7 per game to sit in the bottom five in the league.
