PAT’S THOUGHTS:

This is a tough spot for Oakland.  They had the late Monday nighter vs the Rams.  It was an emotional home game and they came out hot.  However, the cream eventually rose to the top and they were crushed in the 2nd half by a much better team.  Some issues for Oakland in week 1 – they didn’t get pressure on the QB.  Only one sack on the game and very few hurries.  They also were penalized 10 times for 145 yards.  I know that is the Raider-way, but this Raider team isn’t good enough to be pulling stunts like that.  And how can Amari Cooper only touch the ball once?  Not good at all.
Denver, on the other hand, looks like they are back.  Keenum looked competent at QB, and the offense had no trouble moving the ball vs Seattle.  This isn’t the Seattle of old though.  The D looked holding Seattle to 242 passing and 64 rushing yards.  Von was an animal with 3 sacks, two forced fumbles and one recovered fumble. This D looks to be very good once again.  Denver did throw three picks, but one was a deflection of a Thomas drop.
The line movement is indicating that the sharp action is on Oakland.  They have 41% of the bets, but 62% of the money.  I still like Denver in this spot.
