The Denver Broncos will open up their 2019 season on the road against the Oakland Raiders on Monday Night Football as 2.5-point underdogs according to Westgate SuperBook. Below is the full list of odds for Week 1 of the regular season.

Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears (-3.5, 46)
Atlanta Falcons @ Minnesota Vikings (-4.5, 47.5)
Washington Redskins @ Philadelphia Eagles (-8, 46.5)
Buffalo Bills @ New York Jets (-3.5, 38.5)
Baltimore Ravens @ Miami Dolphins (+3.5, 37)
San Francisco 49ers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-2.5, 49)
Kansas City Chiefs @ Jacksonville Jaguars (+5.5, 52.5)
Tennessee Titans @ Cleveland Browns (-5, 45)
Los Angeles Rams @ Carolina Panthers (+2.5, 51)
Detroit Lions @ Arizona Cardinals (Pk, 49)
Cincinnati Bengals @ Seattle Seahawks (-7.5, 43.5)
Indianapolis Colts @ Los Angeles Chargers (-3.5, 48)
New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys (-7.5, 46.5)
Pittsburgh Steelers @ New England Patriots (-6, 53)
Houston Texans @ New Orleans Saints (-7.5, 53.5)
Denver Broncos @ Oakland Raiders (-2.5, 43)

Given the road team tends to get a three-point spotter, it would seem that oddmakers are giving the Broncos a slight edge over their AFC West rival.

The Broncos full 2019 schedule has been released and this will be the first time in a while they have opened on the road to start the season.

They will need to pile up the wins early, however, as they have a five game stretch late in the season of early east coast games. Historically, the Broncos have struggled in those types of early games. Four out of five games from Weeks 11 to 15 are going to be a brutal test for the Broncos. The more wins they get early the better.
