The Broncos are back on Primetime this week in Missouri, and they’re not leaving without a win.
At 8-3 in the AFC West, Denver will be defending their first place position on the Chief’s home turf this Sunday.
That might end up working in their favour though, since Kansas City (7-4) are only 6-15 ATS for the last 21 home games against division rivals.
I’m sure the Broncos would love to see a repeat performance from C.J. Anderson after his career-high rush of 167 yards against Miami last week. (A record for the Broncos season too by the way.)
Judging by the running back’s performance lately, they’ll get their wish.
Kansas City is going to have to scramble to compensate for their notorious weakness against running plays (they’re leading the league right now for allowing most yards per carry) so be prepared for things to get messy.
The books have dubbed Denver as the favourite at -1 with 75% of bettors agreeing.
Considering the blows the Chief’s defense has taken this season – losing Johnson, DeVito, and now Berry – they’re still ranked 4th in the league with 31 sacks under their belt this year.
If Kansas can stay on top of Manning and help their not-so-secret weapon Jamaal Charles do what he does best, they might come out of this one alive.
The total for this contest is set at 49.5. Over three quarters of bettors (79%) are counting on this matchup to go OVER, which has held true for 11 of the 12 Sunday Night Football games this year.
Take Denver at -1, they WILL cover.
