Denver Broncos NFL Week 13 Betting Lines

Denver Broncos NFL Betting Online

What  difference five weeks makes! Left for dead way back in Week 6 after falling to 1-5 SU and 0-5-1 against the NFL odds, the Denver Broncos enter Week 13 betting a .500 ball club with a five-game win streak in tow. You don’t hear Sean Payton’s naysayers calling for his head anymore because of it! Still, there’s much work to be done even though the team has dramatically improved its playoff chances over the last month. That journey continues this Sunday when they go into NRG to take on a pissed off Houston Texans outfit that just dropped a crucial divisional game to the Jaguars last week. Early wager reports find the betting market leaning ever so slightly to the home team in what’s turned out to be a pivotal AFC matchup that could go a long way in determining the conference’s wild-card entrants.

NFL Week 13 Betting Odds

Denver Broncos +3.5

Houston Texans -3.5

Total: 46.5

Money Line: Broncos +163, Texans -190

Denver Broncos Week 13 Matchup

On Sunday, December 3, 2023, the Denver Broncos will take on the Houston Texans from NRG Stadium in Houston, TX. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. ET with television coverage on CBS. The lookahead betting line for this AFC skirmish hit the board with the Broncos catching 3-points and the O/U set 44.5. The number to beat has since jumped to +3.5 by way of Denver only taking in 28 percent of the bets and 47 percent of the money. Still, there’s some pretty decent financial interest in the visitors who’ve gone 2-1 SU and 1-1-1 against the closing NFL odds in their last three treks away from the Mile High City. Houston’s quick turnaround has been predicated upon exceptional play from rookie QB C.J. Stroud and a vastly improved defense under the watch of new head coach DeMeco Ryans. If Denver is to keep its win streak intact, it mustn’t fall into the trap of partaking in a shootout. Instead, it’ll have to do what it takes to dominate time of possession and be stingy enough defensively in hopes of causing a few turnovers that keeps the Texans potent attack on the sideline. Total bettors don’t seem to believe Denver’s improved defense carries over into this match with the O/U on the rise with it up two full points from the opener to 46.5. Even so, Denver has played to two straight low scorers on the road and allowed an average of 20.5 points in both contests. Last week’s high scorers snapped the team’s five-game under streak that only saw 36.6 points scored on average.

Denver Broncos Week 12 Recap

The Broncos tallied their fifth straight win and fourth cover against the NFL odds in Week 12 betting by taking the wood to the Cleveland Browns in a one-sided 29-12 triumph. The win moved Sean Payton’s troops a full game over .500 which stands as quite the feat considering this team found itself 1-5 entering Week 7’s home tilt against the Green Bay Packers. That 19-17 comeback win kick started the winning streak that now finds Denver just on the outside looking into the AFC playoff picture with 6-5 SU and 4-6-1 ATS records in tow. While the box score against the Browns looks pretty even in a number of pertinent stat categories, the one’s dominated by the Broncos ultimately propelled the team to its sixth win of the season. Winning the turnover battle 3-1 and coming up with four sacks while cashing touchdowns in on 3-of-5 red zone penetrations against a tough Browns defense ultimately allowed for Russell Wilson and Co. to protect their house. Preventing Cleveland from going berserk on the ground also played a major role with run D proving to be the stop unit’s Achilles heel of what’s been a vastly improved Denver defense. The turnovers being turned into cheap scores ultimately allowed the online sportsbook to cash in on the total with 76 percent of the bets and 56 percent of the overall money booked supplanted on under 37.5. The story with the point spread didn’t have the same type of happy ending for linemakers with Denver leading throughout and taking in a healthy 61 percent of the bets and 53 percent of the money. Denver’s odds of punching a playoff ticket have gotten shorter every passing week. Now a winning team for the first time this NFL betting season, the “Yes” currently clocks in at +125 while “No” remains the -155 favorite.

Founded in 1960 as charter members of the American Football League, the Denver Broncos did not post a winning record until 1973. In the franchise's early years, the Broncos were known for their hideous brown and yellow uniforms that included vertical socks. Even when they went to orange and blue in the mid-1960s, the team was still bad and ran on a shoestring budget. The biggest claim to fame for the Broncos was their win over the Detroit Lions in a 1966 exhibition game. It was the first exhibition game between the AFL and NFL and a shocking upset.

Led by the Orange Crush defense, Denver finally made the playoffs and the first Super Bowl in 1977, losing to the Dallas Cowboys.

In 1983, the franchise's fortunes changed forever with the arrival of first round draft choice John Elway. Elway rewrote the Broncos record book as a Hall of Fame quarterback. Elway and the Broncos lost three Super Bowls before finally winning the Vince Lombardi Trophy in 1997 and 1998 before Elway retired to become a team executive, which he is to this day.

Indianapolis Colts import Peyton Manning led the Broncos to two Super Bowls, including their last Super Bowl championship in 2015, and retired after the game. Since then, the Broncos have not had a credible quarterback. Until the arrival of Russell Wilson in 2022.  Or so they thought.
