Broncos to Host Pats this Online Betting Football Weekend
Posted by: Mike Davis
The Denver Broncos had a great start to the 2017 online betting football season, posting a 3-1 record through the team’s first 4 games of the year. This exemplary start led many NFL betting players to believe that the Broncos would be able to give the Kansas City Chiefs a run for the division title this season. However, that hasn’t been the case, rather far from. Instead, after that praiseworthy start, the Broncos essentially fell off the face of the earth and lost 5 in a row. In fact, the team got so desperate that they thought putting Brock Osweiler, the most infamous free agent the NFL has ever seen, back in the starting lineup. Making that kind of questionable move is the hallmark of a struggling team and by the looks of it, this is one hole Denver’s elite defense won’t be able to dig them out of.
This Sunday, the Broncos will be hosting the New England Patriots in a vain attempt to break the team’s current losing streak. The Patriots are one of the worst teams to try to rebound against, as they are always a talented and disciplined team – especially around this time of the year. Let’s see what kind of odds the sports bet online lines are giving Denver at Mile High this weekend.
New England Patriots vs. Denver Broncos – Sunday, November 12th
When: 8:30 pm ET
Where: Sports Authority Field, Denver
Stream: NBC Sports, NFL Game Pass
Online Betting Football Odds:
New England Patriots -7 ½ (-101) 46 (-110) -315
Denver Broncos +7 ½ (-119) 46 (-110) +256
New England Patriots
The Pats march into this Week 10 matchup flashing a stellar 6-2 record that ranks the franchise 1st in the AFC East. New England is the perennial leaders of the East and it looks like the division will be theirs once again in 2017. If the Pats are able to claim the division this season, that would mark 7 straight years that the East has belonged to New England. It’s an impressive streak but not nearly as impressive as the 5 Super Bowls the team has claimed in less than two decades. Unlike the struggling Broncos, the Pats enter this online betting football matchup riding a 4 game winning streak that includes their most recent 21-13 win over the San Diego Chargers. The Pats are listed as heavy favorites over the Broncos, which is only natural considering Denver’s recent struggles. Denver’s defense, which ranks 26th in points allowed per game, will have to find a way to contain the league’s 7th best scoring offense this Sunday.
The Broncos are 3-5 on the season which ranks them 3rd in the AFC West. Denver has been out of contention for the lead in the division for several weeks now. Nonetheless, if the Kansas City Chiefs’ struggles continue, the Broncos might just be able to catch up. They’ll need one heck of a rebound however, one they’re unlikely to get against New England.
