The Denver Broncos were eliminated from the playoff race in week 16. Will they finish the season on a positive note regardless? Here’s our take on this highly anticipated AFC West showdown.

                                           Oakland Raiders vs Denver Broncos


Point Spread Value

The Denver Broncos were crushed by the Kansas City Chiefs in week 16 and, in turn, their playoff hopes shattered. They’re officially out of the hunt and looking towards quite few months ahead. The Raiders, meanwhile, are through but the loss of Derek Carr is a huge setback. Matt McGloin will be the starter for Oakland in the foreseeable and his date with the Broncos at Mile High will be pivotal towards his postseason preparations. It’s a different team now without Carr but seeing as the Raiders are 10-5-0 ATS this season with a 3.3 winning margin and +2.2 differential versus the spread it’s hard to go against them for week 17 NFL picks.

The Survivor

One of the most impressive aspects of the Raiders’ season is their solid road form which stands at 6-1 SU with one week to go. McGloin is charged with leading the Raiders to victory in Denver but the altitude is something he’s probably not entirely used to. Broncos have nothing left to play for save pride and give their fans one last thing to cheer about in 2016. It could prove a close call for week 17 NFL picks, so we’re hedging our bets here with the Denver win.

 Game Total

The Raiders are 11-4-0 in O/U betting this season while the Broncos are 7-8-0 in O/U betting. Markets roll out a rather low total for this game which stands in stark contrast to Oakland’s total betting trends. That’s probably down to the uncertainty surrounding McGloin, amongst other things.
