The final Monday Night Football matchup of the year features two sub-.500 teams and two of the league’s worst offenses. The Raiders are scoring the fourth-fewest points, averaging just 18.6 per game, while Denver is scoring just 21.9 points per game. The Raiders defense has been even worse, giving up 29.9 points per game while Denver has managed a top-10 defense, giving up 21.4 points per game.
Despite playing generally terrible football, the Raiders defeated the Steelers and kept it close with the Chiefs, losing 40-33, in the last three weeks. Denver has dropped two straight to the 49ers and Browns but previously won three in a row, taking down Super Bowl contenders in the Chargers and Steelers as well as the Bengals.
These two previously faced off in Week 2, with the Broncos edging Oakland 20-19, and there’s little reason to expect anything different in this one.
Broncos -2.5 (-115)
Raiders +2.5 (-105)
