The Denver Broncos 2023 regular season schedule has been released and it will open up in Week 1 against the hated Las Vegas Raiders. What a perfect way for the Sean Payton era to begin and what an opportunity for this franchise to set off on the right foot to open up this new season.
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Broncos open 3.5-point favorites over the Raiders in Week 1 to open the 2023 regular season. The over/under for this game stands at 45.

The Broncos against the AFC West in recent years has been a dismal episode in the franchise’s history. They have lost 15-straight against the Kansas City Chiefs, but also 6-straight against these Raiders. Their last win was a painful 16-15 defensive win at home back in 2019. Overall, they have dropped seven of their last nine to a Raiders organization that hasn’t been all that good either over that same span of time.
If Sean Payton is going to turn things around - and I think he will - then it absolutely must start in Week 1 at home against the most hated rival in all of Broncos Country.
