PICK SIXTY SPORTS WEEKLY TIP:
Week 3 wraps up with the Raiders and Broncos in a Monday nighter and you can count Oakland as one of the teams who were most unhappy to see Peyton Manning making the move up to Mile High last season. Before 2012, the Raiders were riding a four-game SU/ATS win streak in Denver and Manning put an emphatic end to that run with a 37-6 win. Denver opened with a long TD drive and took a lead they would never relinquish. It was 10-6 at half-time and the Raiders were outscored 27-0 in the second-half. The Raiders amassed just 237 total yards on offense, more than 100 yards below their final season avg (344 yards).
The total this week is listed as high as 50 with some books and entering this code reveals a nice Over/Under angle that hitting 76-percent the past five seasons with 6 overs and 19 unders.
The Broncos are home for the first of two-straight and they have the Eagles on-deck. Philly will be playing on a long rest-week and HC Fox will probably want to have his team rested and ready to go. In the case of another blowout we could see some of Denver’s backup defenders get some work late in the game but against Oakland it shouldn’t make much of a difference. Look for Denver to utilize its strong stable of running backs as this game stays UNDER 50 points.
