NFL Week 10: Raiders En Route to 5th Straight Home Win Over Denver Broncos
Some of the best teams in the NFL have tried but failed to beat the Las Vegas Raiders this season, and the odds are against the Denver Broncos as they attempt the feat in Week 10.
The Broncos (3-5) are approaching make-or-break territory in the 2020 season if they’re to make a dart into the play-offs. The Raiders (5-3) may not be able to strip top spot from the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West, but a home win over division rivals Denver would greatly help their chances at a ‘best runner-up’ berth.
Sunday’s hosts are 1-2 at Allegiant Stadium this season, but Betrivers has the Raiders rated as -220 favorites to beat their Colorado visitors, who are out to prove a point as +188 underdogs:

As things stand, the Raiders will be getting one of the AFC’s three wildcard slots ahead of the Broncos, who effectively need a Week 10 win in Vegas to keep alive any realistic hope of making the post-season.
The guests would have been pleased to see fullback Alec Ingold miss out after breaking two ribs in the Raiders’ Week 9 win at the Los Angeles Chargers, but NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported he’s likely to return:
#Raiders FB Alec Ingold, one of the NFL’s best at his position and the personal bodyguard to star RB Josh Jacobs, suffered two fractured ribs on Sunday, source said… but he somehow plans to play through the injury this week vs the #Broncos. 🤷🏽♂️— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 12, 2020
The Broncos won successive road games against the Jets and the Patriots in Weeks 4 and 6 (with a bye in-between), but their hopes of a third could be hurt by recurring injuries at right tackle, per Jon Heath:
This will be Denver’s first trip to Allegiant Stadium, and head coach Vic Fangio can only hope for positive change compared to their old record playing away to the Raiders. The Broncos lost in each of their last four visits to Oakland (before this season’s switch) by an average margin of 9.5 points.
The smart money is on this week’s clash being a relatively low-scoring game considering each of the past seven meetings between the pair has produced 41 points or fewer (an average 34.6 points per game). A $10 stake on the Raiders to win and 50.5 points or fewer total points scored returns $28 with Betrivers CO (+180 odds).
