Denver Broncos Favored By 10 1/2 Over Raiders

Published on December 5th, 2012 7:25 pm EST

This week's edition of Thursday Night Football will see the red-hot Denver Broncos head to Oakland to do battle against the hapless Raiders.

To say that the Broncos are hot right now would be an understatement. The team has won 7 games in a row and has already locked up the AFC West division (they currently sport a record of 9-3, while the Chargers have the next best record in the division at 4-8). The Broncos have benefited immensely from the addition of Peyton Manning to their line-up, as Manning is currently having one of the best years of his career and is a serious candidate for MVP.

The Oakland Raiders, on the other hand, are having another abysmal season, as they currently have a record of 3-9 and have long since been eliminated from playoff contention. The Raiders have regressed in the past couple of years and are in serious contention to land the #1 pick in the upcoming NFL draft.

The Broncos are 4-2 on the road this season, while the Raiders are just 2-4 at home.

The Denver Broncos are currently 10 1/2 point favorites against the Raiders. Here are the odds as of this moment:

Denver Broncos, -10 1/2, -105
Oakland Raiders, +10 1/2, -115

The Over/Under line is currently set at 48 points:

Over 48 points, -115
Under 48 points, -105

Will the Broncos continue to pile up the wins this Thursday night, or will the Raiders be able to pull off the upset at home?
