Broncos vs Raiders NFL Thursday Night Football Betting

Denver Broncos: Playing with division title in hand

Denver clinched the AFC West title last week, but that does not mean their work is done just yet. The Broncos can still make a play for one of the top seeds in the conference for the playoffs over the next couple of weeks. Denver is 4-0 in the division this year and defeated Oakland 37-6 on the final weekend of September. The Broncos are in the midst of a seven game winning streak that helped them win the West.

Oakland Raiders: Much of the same for yet another year

For a 10th consecutive season the Raiders are playing meaningless games in the month of December with no shot of a playoff appearance. Oakland is 3-9 overall, has lost five straight and quarterback Carson Palmer is in the midst of a personal four game losing streak against the Broncos. During their five game losing streak, the Raiders have been outscored 189-96 and have not lost six straight since 2007.

Divisional games fill the NFL schedule this weekend and it all begins Thursday night as the Broncos travel to Oakland to face the Raiders. We love divisional games because of the rivalries they provide but this one probably should get out of hand early, much like the previous meeting in September. Sportsinteraction.com has the Broncos as -11.5 (-105) favorites, so we will put our money on Manning and Denver.
