Broncos vs. Raiders 2013 odds: Denver favored on the road in AFC West battle

The odds are out for Week 17's matchup between the Broncos and Raiders.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Raiders will host the Broncos to close out the season for both teams. The Raiders are currently 4-11 and are once again at the bottom of the AFC West. The Broncos are currently on top of the entire AFC but need a win or a Patriots loss to claim home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Raiders will start Terrelle Pryor at quarterback in a game that is mostly a battle for pride for Oakland. Because of the Broncos' dominance on the season, Denver is favored by 11.5 points on the road, according to OddsShark.

The over/under for Sunday's game is 53.5 points. The Broncos are 11-4 with the over/under this season, while the Raiders are 7-7-1. Denver is 9-6 against the spread, but is just 4-3 on the road. Oakland is 8-7 against the spread, but has gone 1-4 over the last five games.

The Broncos are averaging a league-high 38.1 points per game, while allowing 25.7 points on defense. The Raiders are 20.5 points, but giving away 27.9 points to opposing teams.
