Why the Oakland Raiders are a good bet +3?

The Oakland Raiders played like a different team in Week 16. They beat the Chargers 24-17 on the road. The reason? They are no longer the Oakland Raiders. Starting after Sunday, they are now the Vegas Raiders. Just knowing that allowed Oakland to play more loose in Week 16 than they have all season long. The Raiders should carry that energy to Week 17. They should also play with the same focus they had versus the Chargers.

Raiders vs Broncos Final NFL Betting Analysis

Both teams won’t hold anything back. Although Oakland should show fire, Denver won’t care. The Broncos feel they’re the better team. That’s up for debate.

In Week 16, Oakland broke a 5-game losing streak against the spread. They did it by holding the Chargers to 19 rushing yards from 16 carries. Quarterback Derek Carr completed 26-of-30 for 291 yards. He threw a TD pass.

Sounds too simple to say the Raiders stepped it up because they no longer had to worry about playing in Oakland. Sometimes, it’s something that simple that can turn a franchise around. Expect the Raiders to have fun on Sunday. The defense will shut down rookie Lock. The offense will expose a Broncos’ defense that Patrick Mahomes took to task in Week 15. Go Raiders moneyline.
