Betting on the Denver Broncos (odds)
Regular Season Record: 4-7
The Broncos lost to the Kansas City Chiefs last Sunday, 22-16, but they managed to cover the spread as 14-point road underdogs, thanks in large part to Denver’s grit and no-surrender attitude. Drew Lock passed for 151 yards and two touchdowns and two interceptions on 15-of-28 completions, while Melvin Gordon rushed 15 times for 131 yards. They kept in step with the Chiefs for the most part of the game. It’s just that Kansas City has so much talent to spell the difference in the contest. Meanwhile, the Panthers don’t have a Patrick Mahomes under center, and it’s got a suspect offensive line that the Broncos can smash through. The Broncos have 10 sacks over their last three games, including their six-sack effort in a win over the Miami Dolphins at home in Week 11. As for the Panthers, they have allowed seven sacks in the last two games.
The Broncos are 6-4 against the spread in their last 10 road games.
Betting on the Carolina Panthers (odds)
Regular Season Record: 4-8
The Panthers will come into the Denver game refreshed following a bye in Week 13. Before taking a break, the Panthers lost a close one to the Minnesota Vikings on the road to the tune of a 28-27 score. But help could be on the way for Carolina, as head coach Matt Rhule recently expressed his confidence that star running back Christian McCaffrey is going to make a return to action in Week 14 against the Broncos. That smells like trouble for the Broncos’ problematic run defense that’s also missing key pieces due to injuries. The Broncos have allowed 155.5 yards and a total of eight rushing touchdowns over their last four games. Despite missing Clyde Edwards-Helaire in Week 13, the Chiefs were able to muster 134 rushing yards on 22 carries (6.1 yards per carry). McCaffrey’s return should open up spaces for Carolina’s passing attack that boasts of dangerous playmakers in Robbie Anderson and Curtis Samuel.
The under is 3-1 in the Panthers’ last four home games.
The Broncos win, 23-20.
