The Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders might not be the best teams in the NFL and their quarterbacks might not be the most talented in the National Football League, but the two AFC West opponents will battle regardless this weekend. The Week 9 NFL odds favor the hosting Raiders despite Tim Tebow already showing earlier this year that he's capable of being a live 'dog.
The opening line had the Raiders favored by a touchdown, but according to Odds Shark, some betting sites are giving Tebow as many as 9½ points on the road. Considering he is facing a team that features what looked to be an incapable tandem of Carson Palmer and Jason Campbell their last team out, that seems pretty generous.
The over-under, by the way, opened at a solid 45 points. That number might be a bit high considering this game could be a 10-6 game, but that's why they are the experts.
