The Denver Broncos failed to win their third win in a row, as their offense got stuck in neutral against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 7. They will be dealing with yet another sturdy defense this coming defense in the form of the Indianapolis Colts’ stop unit, though, Vic Fangio’s men also know how to serve a defensive dish.

Betting on the Denver Broncos (2-5)
The Broncos took a 30-6 loss against the Kansas City Chiefs at home in Week 7, but hey, at least Joe Flacco got to live. Flacco was thrown to the ground like a ragdoll by the Chiefs’ pass rush, which sacked the Super Bowl champion nine times for a loss of 72 yards for Denver. Flacco may not be playing at an elite level, but he deserves to have a chance under center, and he’s not getting much of it behind an offensive line that’s ranked 28th in the league in quarterback sacked percentage (9.45). The Broncos have talented receivers downfield who just need Flacco to get them the ball. Against the Chiefs, Courtland Sutton had 87 receiving yards on six catches, while Emmanuel Sanders recorded 60 receiving yards on five catches. The tandem of Philip Lindsay and Royce Freeman can open things up for Denver against the Colts’ defense that is only 19th in the league in stopping the run.
The under is 7-3 in the Broncos’ last 10 road games.
Betting on the Indianapolis Colts (4-2)
Who said the Colts can’t win games relying mostly on Jacoby Brissett’s ability to throw the ball? Indianapolis silenced their critics on Sunday during their 30-23 home win over the Houston Texans. Brissett went 26 for 39 for 326 passing yards and four touchdowns without an interception. Second-year wide receiver Zach Pascal came out of nowhere and recorded 106 receiving yards and two touchdowns on six catches and seven targets. Pascal could be another wheel for the Colts’ offense that is only 24th in the NFL with 221.8 passing yards per game, but has proven, at least in the Texas game, that there’s more life in it than what the numbers say. Defensively, Indianapolis will look to bottle up Denver’s attack just as the Chiefs did last week by getting to Flacco. The Colts have made seven sacks over their last two games. The Colts are also ninth in the league with a 7.41 defensive quarterback sacked percentage.
Indianapolis is 3-2 against the spread (ATS) in its last five home games.
The Colts win, 25-16.
