Peyton Manning Broncos vs. RaidersThe Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos are set to continue the 2012 NFL season, and as a part of our analysis of the Week 14 betting lines, we are taking a look at some of the best NFL props on the board for this crucial Thursday Night Football matchup.

Longest Field Goal of the Game Over/Under 44.5 Yards: Oh, c’mon! This is Sea Bass we’re talking about! K Sebastian Janikowski has only missed two kicks this year, and they are both of the 60+ yard variety. Just by himself, he has had five games this year in which he has booted a field goal of at least 45 yards, and in four of those games, that kick has come from at least 51 yards. There is no doubt if Oakland gets inside of the Denver 40 yard line, Head Coach Dennis Allen has no doubts about sending on his kicking unit. K Matt Prater is a slightly different story, as he has had a few games this year without a single field goal. He does have three games with field goals made of over 50 yards, and one of those games was against these very same Raiders. It really seems as though there will be at least a whack or two from long range in this one, and we have to think that, especially if it’s Janikowski, he’ll have no problems booting it through the uprights. Longest Field Goal of the Game Over 44.5 Yards -115

Will the Raiders Ever Lead Against the Broncos?: They didn’t the first time these teams played… Granted, this game is at home, and we don’t expect to see the Broncos put up over 500 yards of offense once again, but it still feels like there has to be nowhere near a 50/50 chance that the Raiders don’t even find their way in front in this one. Denver hasn’t led from start to finish in a game since October 28th against the New Orleans Saints, and it is really, really tough to be that to a team on the road. At some point, Oakland has to get on the board, whether it be first or shortly thereafter, and if that turns out to be the case, we would like to think that it is going to be in front for at least a few seconds in this one, no matter how bad the end result might truly be. Oakland Raiders To Lead During The Game (-160)

Peyton Manning Over/Under 299.5 Passing Yards: Manning has been insanely efficient this year, throwing for over 3,500 yards in spite of the fact that he has fewer pass attempts than any other quarterback that has thrown for that many yards. The problem that we have with Manning is that he hasn’t reached 300 passing yards but once in the last five games, and that was a game in which he had just 301 yards. Manning has only exceeded 309 yards three times this year, and that hasn’t happened since losing to the New England Patriots back in Week 5. Granted, one of those times did come against these Raiders, but is Manning really going to complete 78.9 percent of his passes again in this one. It’s entirely possible, especially knowing that the Raiders’ defense has been a sieve over the course of the last several weeks of the season, but it really seems like a square as heck play to think that Manning is going to get to three bills more often than not in this one. Peyton Manning Under 299.5 Passing Yards (+100)

Demaryius Thomas Over/Under 95.5 Receiving Yards: Just because Manning is down though, doesn’t mean that Thomas has to be down, too. The Georgia Tech product has been out of this world over the course of this season, and he has five 100+ yard games on the campaign (to go with his 99-yard effort last week). When Manning gets locked in with Thomas, it is starting to look like the good old days of when he was getting the job done with WR Marvin Harrison. Thomas is his security blanket, especially when the going gets tough. Thomas hasn’t had a 100+ yard game since Week 10, but this is the worst secondary that he has run across since that point as well. Manning will hit him with a bomb over the course of this one, and a few of the medium range passes will put Thomas over the top by the end of the third quarter. Demaryius Thomas Over 95.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
