Ed Graney: Under Tough assignment for those in front of him.

Heidi Fang: Under Pat Surtain didn’t allow a reception last week when targeted.

Josh Jacobs rushing yards O/U: 63.5

Vincent Bonsignore: UnderThe Raiders are going to get a committee going.

Ed Graney: Over Mick Lombardi says this is a balanced offense. Let’s see it.

Adam Hill: Over Balance has been the key word this week. That’s coachspeak for run the ball.

Sam Gordon: OverJacobs is averaging 64 yards per game this season while getting 4.6 yards per rush, his best since 2019 when he logged 4.8 yards per carry.

Heidi Fang: Over It’s almost a push, but I’ll give Jacobs the edge.

Davante Adams receiving yards O/U: 76.5

Vincent Bonsignore: OverHe might get 76 targets.

Ed Graney: Over  He’s angry. He’s frustrated. Feed him.

Adam Hill: Over When the Raiders do throw, No. 17 will be the primary option. Maybe secondary, too.

Sam Gordon: Over Expecting the Raiders to emphasize Adams after two underwhelming outings for the perennial All-Pro.

Heidi Fang: Under Adams will have a better game than the past two outings but not in the 100- or even 75-yard range.

Russell Wilson passing yards O/U: 240.5

Vincent Bonsignore: UnderBroncos’ pass game just not there yet.

Ed Graney: Under  Unless he’s pass blocking for himself.

Adam Hill: Over — Not by much, but the Raiders’ secondary is banged up and the Broncos’ offense has to figure things out at some point.

Sam Gordon: Over Denver’s offense is due to click, and the Raiders’ secondary is dealing with a myriad of injuries.

Heidi Fang: Over It’s a tough call with the Broncos’ offensive line limping in and the Raiders’ secondary depleted, but if Ryan Tannehill can do it …

Javonte Williams rushing yards O/U: 51.5

Vincent Bonsignore: OverIt’s a tandem in Denver, but Williams might have the hot hand.

Ed Graney: Over Run it at Chandler Jones all afternoon?

Adam Hill: Over The Broncos keep increasing his touch share. Take the over until the books have a chance to adjust.

Sam Gordon: Over The bruising second-year back averages 58.7 rushing yards per game.

Heidi Fang: Over I’m expecting him to hit about 65 yards.
