THE PREDICTION

It has not been the start to the season that either the Raiders or the Broncos would have wanted but both will be viewing this match as an opportunity to kick-start their campaigns. Both are coming off consecutive heavy defeats so confidence in both camps will be low but it is the Raiders who have had the edge over the Broncos in recent games winning their last two meetings. With the chance of beating them for a third consecutive match for the first time since 1994/95, the Raiders have the motivation and home advantage which can help them seal a narrow victory.
