The Las Vegas Raiders are coming off a loss to the Chicago Bears, and while we reel over that bitter defeat — let’s look ahead at the early odds from DraftKings Sportsbook to get you ready for Week 6. The Raiders will be playing a tough divisional matchup against the Denver Broncos at Mile High Stadium at 1.25 p.m. PT on Sunday.
DraftKings posted odds for all the Week 6 games, and the Broncos are early favorites in the divisional battle in their home stadium with the Raiders as +3 underdogs, and an O/U of 45. Jon Gruden is 1-7 in Denver for his career. He is hoping to make it two wins in a row there for the first time since he became a coach ... and avoid the third loss in as many weeks.
This is first week that teams have a BYE, so Falcons, Saints, Jets, and 49ers are all off the schedule for Week 6 — and there is only a total of 14 games. The biggest favorites in the NFL so far for the upcoming games, according to DraftKings, are the LA Rams at -10.5 over the injury-riddled New York Giants.
The Raiders need to find a sign of life after dormant offenses performances back to back. They want to avoid falling to 0-2 in the division after a strong start vs. the AFC division.
