Betting on the Denver Broncos (TBA)

The Broncos just picked up a win over the Jaguars, 20-10, and for the nth time this season, it was an offensive struggle. The victory once again had “defense” written all over it.

Paxton Lynch stepped in for the injured Trevor Siemian (foot). The rookie looked like a deer caught in the headlights, and only went 12-for-24 for 104 yards. The run game didn’t offer a whole lot of help, too, as Devontae Booker and Kapri Bibbs only had 84 yards on 3.6 yards per carry, along with one TD.

The defense, meanwhile, was able to hit the QB seven times and had two INTs (one was a pick-six). Through the potent D, Blake Bortles only completed 19 of his 42 passes.

It is still unknown whether Siemian will be back for Week 14, but whoever the QB is has a chance to get good yardage, since they are battling a Tennessee secondary that allows the second-most passing yards in the league.

Against the Titans’ balanced offense, which includes mobile QB Marcus Mariota and the versatile back DeMarco Murray, the Broncos defense will have their work cut out for them. The stop unit is giving up the second fewest yards through the air (195.1 per game), but allows the sixth-most yards on the ground (122.8).

The Broncos are 4-2 SU and ATS in six road games this season.

Betting on the Tennessee Titans (TBA)

The Titans are returning from a bye and a 27-21 win over the Chicago Bears one week prior. It was an okay performance from everyone, but if not for the Bears receivers dropping a boatload of passes, the result would likely be different.

They will now be matching up with another aggressive defense, and Marcus Mariota and DeMarco Murray will again try to provide the needed offense. The two have lifted the once-boring Titans O into seventh in points.

Mariota in his last six games is averaging 271 passing yards, and has a 15-2 TD-INT ratio, while Murray is still one of the top yard-getters in the league, with 1,352 total offense from scrimmage to go along with 11 scores.

The passing game is also enjoying the sudden burst of off-season acquisition Rishard Matthews, who has 489 yards and seven TD grabs in his last eight outings.

On defense, the defensive front will be in a spotlight. They are 14th in rushing yards allowed, but they are favored against the Broncos mediocre ground attack. Also, they haven’t allowed a team to run for more than 100 yards in seven of their last games.

The secondary, on the other hand, will be in an interesting position. They allow the second-most passing yards, but will be going up against a unit with a suspect QB play.

Writer’s Prediction

The Titans win, 26-20.
