is this directed at me? Cause it says Jake, prolly a typo tho. Anyway I'm a Raider homer, but I don't care about the so called rule of betting with or against your team. I've made two max bets against the Raiders this year and cashed, and in the end I'll take the money when I know my team is going to get crushed anyway lol. I havnt looked into this game too much yet, but the Raiders do usually get up for these games. Thing is, the Broncos never had Peyton Manning either. These Broncos crushed the Raiders earlier in the year in dominating fashion. The key is whether the Broncos take this game lightly and win by 7-10, or do they play 100% and beat the Raiders by 20. And believe me if they play with their best effort, will easily beat this Raiders squad by 20. But it's difficult to tell how the Broncos will play. The seem to have already had their letdown against the chiefs a couple weeks back tho. I don't like laying double digits in the NFL either. It's never a good idea and the odds are against you. Double digit dogs have covered around 55% the last 5 years or so. So you have a uphill battle if you lay that many points. I'll have my pick on Thursday, but I can tell you I won't be backing the Raiders most likely. If you want to take the Broncos I suggest you lock it in now Because the line will prolly get higher. I'll prolly tease this one or play the total, or a team total. Hope that helps.
