Oakland Raiders vs Denver Broncos 12-29-2019 Picks Odds and Predictions

Oakland Raiders vs Denver Broncos 12/29/2019 – The Oakland Raiders fly in to meet the Denver Broncos, needing a win to keep its postseason hopes alive. Unfortunately, NFL games online see the Broncos as overwhelming favorites to come out on top. Part of this may be because of Denver’s better play since their Week 10 bye. They have gone 3-3 in their last six games which included a road win over the Houston Texans. Both teams met in Week 1 with Oakland winning 24-16. However, a lot has changed since then for the Broncos.

Oakland Raiders

A lot is at stake for the Oakland Raiders who enter the Empower Field at Mile High as perennial underdogs. A win boosts the chances of Oakland in making the postseason wars. However, their fate still depends on how the Tennessee Titans,  Jacksonville Jaguars and Pittsburgh Steelers perform. The Raiders will be praying for all these teams to lose. Derek Carr will lead the offensive attack, perhaps his last chance to prove he belongs in Oakland. The Raiders defense needs to replicate its performance last week against the Los Angeles Chargers. They need to clamp down on lock to get this crucial win.

Players to watch:

D. Carr QB (15 GP 332 CMP 467 ATT 71.1 CMP% 3663 YDS 7.8 AVG 249.7 YDS/G 65 LNG 20 TD 8 INT 27 SACK 173 SYL 65.5 QBR 101.1 RTG), J.

Denver Broncos

The Broncos continue to improve and this is probably why NFL live betting picks them to win handily. Leading the charge will be rookie quarterback Drew Lock. He had a great game against the Detroit Lions, finishing with a 75.8 completion percentage with no interceptions. Denver may field him in again and see if they can get something more out of the rookie. Lock will get plenty of help on the defensive end. Chris Harris will lead the defensive matrix, giving the Raiders more things to worry about.
