Red Rover, Red Rover, the Denver Broncos love the OVER.
This team has seen OVER cash eight consecutive weeks. Imagine if you had been riding this streak. As I have said many times in this weekly article, “never bet on a streak to end. You can only lose once while you can ride the streak for as long as it goes.”
Imagine being the Broncos with a very impressive 7-1 record only to be playing second fiddle to Kansas City. Andy Reid, Alex Smith and Jamaal Charles have the Chiefs remaining perfect at 8-0. Like most of you, I feel Denver is the better team, the problem is the schedule.
Denver has a challenging schedule while the Chiefs do not. At this point, I feel Denver would almost have to sweep KC, which is very possible. The key here is to win the division and be the AFC’s No. 1 seed. You could have the second best record in the entire conference and end up as a 5 seed.
That would be the challenge no matter how much talent because you would have to win 3 straight road games. Things could continue to be very interesting coming down the second half of the season.
The Broncos have been a dead OVER team from the get go. The Chicago Bears and St. Louis Rams combined are 12-2 to the OVER. On the flip side, the Chiefs and Raiders are 12-3 to the UNDER.
As far as money earners and burners against the spread, the Cowboys are 7-1 versus the closing number, while the Niners are 6-2. Money burners would include Houston, Tampa Bay and Jacksonville, who combined are 3-19 against the number.
