The Denver Broncos come down “a mile high” to engage the Raiders in the season opener at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum in Oakland, California. The Broncos are 2-5 in their last 5 preseason games winning over the Atlanta Falcons (14-10) and the Arizona Cardinals 20-7. Denver lost its 3 preseason matches to Seattle Seahawks (14-22), San Francisco 49ers (15-24), and to the LA Rams (6-10). The Broncos finished its 2018 campaign at third place in the AFC West with a final tally of 6-10.

Denver is known for its defensive thrusts with OLBs Von Miller and Bradley Chubb on a sacking smorgasbord at 44 sacks last season, ranked 8th in the NFL. The Raiders will be up to these sacking mania when they allowed 52 on their QBs last year. The Broncos’ offense, QB Joe Flacco easily spotted his targets with top WRs Emmanuel Sanders and Phillip Lindsay visible to Flacco’s line of sight. Denver is 2-5 ATS in its last 7 matches against the Raiders and 11-4 SU in its last 15 games versus Oakland.

Meanwhile in Oakland, the Raiders will start their 2019 campaign with WR Antonio Brown coming out of the fray to help in their offense. Brown had a heated altercation with his General Manager Mike Mayock. The Raiders are planning to suspend their star player. He will be playing with a very heavy helmet in this match (if he is not suspended in this game). Oakland won 3 out of its 4 preseason matches over the LA Rams (14-3), Arizona Cardinals (33-26), and versus the Green Bay Packers (22-21) but lost to the Seattle Seahawks (15-17) .

Oakland had 52 sacks last season. Josh Jacobs, the RB rookie from Alabama had taken over the field from Marshawn Lynch and Doug Martin and will be a new force to be reckoned with for the Raiders. Jacobs is the Rookie of the Year Awardee favored by the Associated Press. Defensive Tackle Clelin Ferrell was the first round draftee picked by Oakland to address their sacking problem last year. The Raiders is 4-16 SU in their last 20 matches and 5 out of its 7 home games went under the totals against the Broncos.
