The Denver Broncos are now 7-point home favorites over the Oakland Raiders

The Denver Broncos (1-0) are home favorites again in Week 2, this time against the Oakland Raiders (0-1).

Update: The line has continued to grow all week, so this update was necessary. After opening at four, the line has grown to six and even seven points in some places heading into this weekend.

Original story: According to OddsShark, the Denver Broncos will be 4.5-point home favorites over the Oakland Raiders in Week 2. That line may change as we get closer to game day. The line opened at 4-points in favor of the Broncos, but some plays have bumped that line up to 5-points.

As I noted last week, the Broncos own an 85% home win percentage during the first two weeks of the season since the merger and are now 20-1 since 2001. That is some serious trend to follow. Also since the merger, the Broncos are 38-16-6 against the spread.

This Week 2 matchup will take place on Sunday, September 16, 2018 at 2:25 p.m. Mile High time at Broncos Stadium at Mile High in Denver, Colorado.
