The Taysom Hill Express is on its way to Mile High City, as the New Orleans Saints look to extend their winning streak when they face the Denver Broncos in Week 12. The Broncos are coming off a nice win themselves, and should benefit from the fact that they don’t have to travel for this game.

Betting on the New Orleans Saints (-6)
Regular Season Record: 8-2
After succeeding with their experiment to ride Taysom Hill as their quarterback from start to finish in Week 11’s 24-9 win at home over the Atlanta Falcons, the Saints are likely to give the ball again to the do-it-all signal-caller. Hill passed for 233 yards on 18-of-23 completions, and while he did not score a passing touchdown, he was efficient, did not get intercepted, and also led the team with 51 rushing yards and a couple of touchdowns on 10 carries. Denver will not be facing Drew Brees, but with Hill creating plays in unnatural ways and the fact that the Saints still have Michael Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, and Alvin Kamara should help stretch the Broncos’ defense that is allowing 26.7 points per game – 21st in the NFL.
The Saints, who are averaging 29.5 points per game and have a defense that’s fifth in the league with 32 sacks, are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 road games.
Betting on the Denver Broncos (+6)
Regular Season Record: 4-6
The Broncos nourished themselves with a win in Week 11, as they took down the then-red hot Miami Dolphins at home to the tune of a 20-13 score. The Broncos gave Miami a taste of its own medicine. They sacked Tua Tagovailoa six times and forced an interception off of Ryan Fitzpatrick while holding Miami’s ground attack down to just 56 yards on 17 carries. That’s going to be the formula to success for the Broncos against the Drew Brees-less Saints. Pressuring Hill in the pocket and telegraphing any errant passes from the Saints’ quarterback could lead to some forced turnovers. The Broncos can also go run-heavy, as the tandem of Melvin Gordon and Philip Lindsay is among the best in the NFL. The two had 164 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns in the win over Miami’s stout defense.
The Broncos are 2-0 against the spread in their last two games overall.
The Saints win, 24-19.
