Bet on the NFLThe Denver Broncos host the Oakland Raiders this Sunday in Week 7 of the 2010 NFL season. The Broncos are coming off two consecutive losses, to the Ravens at 17-31 and the Jets at 20-24.
Broncos rookie Tim Tebow is coming off his most significant action for the team, eight Wildcat snaps last week vs. the New York Jets, and, his first NFL touchdown run. He has been a real team player, saying “It felt good just to be able to go in there and try to help the team. I’m just going to do whatever they ask me to do and try to do it with all my heart. I’m just excited that I get a chance to be on the field. Whatever they say, I am going to do the best I can.”
Oakland coach Tom Cable said he expects to see Tebow take at least a handful of snaps on Sunday when the Raiders renew their rivalry with the Broncos in a matchup of 2-4 teams.
The Starting QB position for the Raiders this weekend is still up in the air as Kyle Boller could make his first start of the season, or it could instead be Jason Campbell who injured his left knee during last weekend’s 17-9 loss to the 49ers.
Or there is also the option of Bruce Gradkowski who re-injured his right shoulder in the first half of the October 10th game. Cable favors Gradkowski if he’s healthy, second pick would be Campbell, but it’s looking like Boller is the healthiest of the three.
Sportsbook lists the Broncos as the minus 8.5 point home faves with the over under at 41.5.
