Denver Broncos NFL Week 4 Betting Lines

Denver Broncos NFL Betting

The Denver Broncos are 2-1, but they haven’t played particularly well to start the season. The offense has been extremely disappointing under Russell Wilson, as they rank 31st in scoring with just 14.3 PPG. That has led to the boo birds coming out in Mile High Stadium, so perhaps its good the Broncos go on the road to face the Las Vegas Raiders in Sin City this weekend.

On Sunday, October 2, 2022, the Denver Broncos will clash with the winless Las Vegas Raiders in an AFC West showdown. This game will be played at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada at 4:25 p.m. ET on CBS.

Denver Broncos Week 4 Matchup

The only team in the NFL without a win or a tie is the Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders haven’t been terrible though, as all of their losses were by one score, and they were up 20-0 on the Arizona Cardinals before blowing a lead in the second half.

Derek Carr was expected to take a big step forward by some after the Raiders acquired Davante Adams this offseason, but Carr has not played well under center. He is completing just 60.8% of his passes for 7.1 YPA with six touchdowns and four interceptions, and he has been sacked seven times. Carr has only completed 17 of his 34 throws to Adams, and the duo is averaging 11.1 YPR. Mack Hollins has been the more effective receiver with 14 catches for 240 yards and a score.

Denver has one of the best defenses in the NFL. The Broncos rank second in scoring defense (12.0 PPG) and third in total defense (251.3 YPG). Their secondary has been excellent despite not recording many interceptions, as Patrick Surtain II has already proven to be an elite cornerback. Kareem Jackson and Ronald Darby are playing well too in the back.

Russell Wilson has not been the difference maker that Denver thought he would be under center. Wilson is completing just 59.4% of his passes for 7.0 YPA with two touchdowns and an interception through three games, and he has been sacked nine times. Courtland Sutton has been his top receiver by a mile with 15.3 YPR, but the team has had to try and lean on the ground game more than expected.

The Las Vegas Raiders have a below average defense, surrendering 25.7 PPG and 376.3 YPG. They have a solid front seven though, allowing just 3.8 YPC. For Denver to win this game, Wilson will have to take advantage of a subpar secondary, and it will be even more alarming if he doesn’t have success against the Raiders defensive backs.

Denver Broncos Week 3 Recap

Russell Wilson struggled once again last week, leading to growing concerns over whether or not he is still the same quarterback that he was in Seattle. Wilson completed 20 of 33 passes for 184 yards in the 11-10 win over San Francisco, but he was sacked four times and is not nearly as mobile as he was in his prime. Courtland Sutton caught eight passes for 97 yards as the top receiver in this offense, but the second leading receiver was running back Melvin Gordon III with five receptions for 29 yards.

Denver didn’t have a lot of success running the football. Javonte Williams was more successful than Gordon though as Williams ran 15 times for 58 yards compared to 12 carries for 26 yards for Gordon. Additionally, Gordon fumbled the ball twice, but the Broncos were able to recover both fumbles.

San Francisco looked like it might cruise to a victory after scoring a touchdown on its second drive of the game. The ground game was moving the chains, and Deebo Samuel was making his presence felt as a runner and receiver. However, everything changed after left tackle Trent Williams left the game with an injury. The 49ers had to turn to the air, and Jimmy Garoppolo failed to deliver. Jimmy G completed 18 of 29 passes for 211 yards with a touchdown and an interception, and he was sacked four times.

Founded in 1960 as charter members of the American Football League, the Denver Broncos did not post a winning record until 1973. In the franchise's early years, the Broncos were known for their hideous brown and yellow uniforms that included vertical socks. Even when they went to orange and blue in the mid-1960s, the team was still bad and ran on a shoestring budget. The biggest claim to fame for the Broncos was their win over the Detroit Lions in a 1966 exhibition game. It was the first exhibition game between the AFL and NFL and a shocking upset.

Led by the Orange Crush defense, Denver finally made the playoffs and the first Super Bowl in 1977, losing to the Dallas Cowboys.

In 1983, the franchise's fortunes changed forever with the arrival of first round draft choice John Elway. Elway rewrote the Broncos record book as a Hall of Fame quarterback. Elway and the Broncos lost three Super Bowls before finally winning the Vince Lombardi Trophy in 1997 and 1998 before Elway retired to become a team executive, which he is to this day.

Indianapolis Colts import Peyton Manning led the Broncos to two Super Bowls, including their last Super Bowl championship in 2015, and retired after the game. Since then, the Broncos have not had a credible quarterback. Until the arrival of Russell Wilson in 2022.
