NFL Week 4 picks, predictions:

The Arizona Republic: Raiders 31, Broncos 24

Jeremy Cluff writes: "The Raiders can't start 0-4, right? They'll break through for their first win at home in an important division game against Denver."

Draft Kings: Go with the Raiders to cover vs. Broncos

David Fucillo writes: "We’ll see where this line moves, but I have a hunch we see Las Vegas get back on track. I think we see the Broncos lose to the 49ers, so early movement might end up being in the Raiders’ direction. I’m not a believer in “they’re due,” but I think at some point the Raiders offense will get on track. I think we see it to some degree in Week 4 against the Broncos."

NFL Week 4 odds:

SB Nation: Las Vegas still believes in Raiders

It writes: "The Raiders are early –1.5 favorite over the Denver Broncos (+1.5) and an O/U of 46. Even with the 0-3 start, the Raiders continued to have the belief from the betting community for the third week in a row." Take the Raiders on the moneyline vs. Broncos

Bill Speros writes: "Josh McDaniels faces his old team – no, not THAT old team – in Week 4 when the Broncos ride into Sin City. When McDaniels got the boot in Denver, the Broncos QB was Kyle Orton. This time, McDaniels and his Raiders get their first AFC West taste of the Broncos with Russell Wilson at QB. Right now, this game is a pick 'em. That screams value for the home team for your NFL Week 4 best bets, especially a home team as stacked as the Raiders."

Pro Football Network: Take the Raiders to cover against the spread vs. Broncos

BJ Rudell writes: "The 0-3 Raiders are in must-win mode. This is not how the franchise drew things up when they acquired Davante Adams. While I urged PFN Pass subscribers to fade Adams in fantasy drafts at his lofty WR4 ADP, I didn’t expect Derek Carr to struggle this much. The yardage and touchdowns are solid. But four interceptions in the face of three very close losses are tough to swallow. Not that Denver’s playing any better. I missed the mark with them, believing Russell Wilson would be the key to an electric offense not seen in this city since 2014. Instead, Wilson has struggled and the team has left dozens of points on the board near the goal line. Until they turn things around, I’m picking the franchise with its back against the wall."

CBS Sports: Raiders, Broncos have struggled against the spread this season

Tyler Sullivan writes: "This was a pick'em back in in the spring and in early September, but things have shifted towards the Raiders. Now, they are a 2-point home favorite against the Broncos in an AFC West head-to-head. Thus far, both clubs have been underwhelming and have failed to live up to the preseason expectations. While Denver has two wins under its belt, the offense continues to lack the explosiveness that many expected they'd have with Russell Wilson under center. Meanwhile, the Raiders are 0-3 to kick off the Josh McDaniels era and could be looking at a must-win situation, despite only being in Week 4.  Combined, these teams are 1-5 ATS this season."

ESPN: Raiders have a 57.2% chance to win the game

The site's Football Power Index gives the Broncos a 42.3% shot at picking up the victory.
