Jarrett Stidham QB vs. Aidan O’Connell QB

Jarrett Stidham has posted modest numbers for the Denver Broncos. In just 2 games played, he has completed 20 of 32 pass attempts for 224 yards, good for 112 yards per game. He has managed 1 passing touchdown and 0 interceptions while taking 2 sacks for 12 yards lost. Stidham has shown potential with a 62.5% completion rate and respectable 7 yards per pass attempt. His 93.8 quarterback rating also indicates efficient passing when given the opportunity. With not much to go on from a small sample size, the Broncos have to hope Stidham can translate his talents into extended starts down the road.

Aidan O’Connell has been at the helm for 10 starts so far in 2023. On the year, O’Connell has completed 193 passes on 312 attempts for 1,974 yards, 10 touchdowns and 7 picks. He has put up a respectable 197.4 passing yards per contest but his accuracy could use some improvement at 61.9%. O’Connell has also taken 22 sacks on the season resulting in lost yardage. Where he has excelled most is avoiding catastrophic mistakes, not forcing many errant throws into tight coverage so far. His chemistry in the passing game seems to be growing as well.

Broncos’ Ground and Air Attack

Denver’s offense features multifaceted threats like Javonte Williams and Jerry Jeudy as a result. Williams boasts 742 rushing yards at an average of 3.6 yards per carry and his ability to convert runs into first downs has been instrumental for Denver. Meanwhile, Jeudy boasts 679 receiving yards at 13.3 yards per reception as a key playmaker capable of turning any reception into significant gains for Denver.

Raiders’ Offensive Strategy

Zamir White and Davante Adams lead the Raiders offensively. White, while not as prolific as Williams, has shown flashes of brilliance with an average carrying distance of 4.3 yards per carry and long rush of 43 yards. Adams stands out as a top target in passing game and poses significant threat against Broncos secondary defense.

Denver Broncos vs. Las Vegas Raiders Betting Picks

At first glance, this game appears to favor Oakland with respect to trends and key player matchups, especially their strong home record against Denver. Furthermore, recent underwhelming performances ATS for Denver suggest they might have trouble in Las Vegas against them and suggest the Raiders may hold an edge here.

However, one cannot discount the Broncos’ impressive recent record and their defense thwarting the Raiders’ offense; under is a safe bet given both teams’ trends; for those exploring prop bets focusing on individual performances like receiving yards for Davante Adams or rushing yards for Javonte Williams could prove fruitful.
