Denver Broncos NFL Betting

Last season the Denver Broncos drove right into a ditch in which they were never able to dig out of. Denver lost their first four games for then new coach Vic Fangio and then lost four of the next seven games that followed. With a 3-8 record and under the radar, the Broncos won four of their last five games under new starter and raw rookie quarterback Drew Lock. That finish served to set off wild speculation about the Broncos being ready to make a move into contender status. Instead Denver has dropped their first two games of the season and is quickly falling back in the AFC playoff race. The moral of the story is that meaningless games at the end of the season with no pressure are far easier to win than when the spotlight is on you. This week the Broncos will host the favored Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are coming off a nice bounce back win after an opening day debacle at New Orleans. Tom Brady is still working his way into the Bucs system.

Denver Broncos Week 3 Matchup

On Sunday, September 27 the Denver Broncos will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Empower Field in Denver, Colorado. Kickoff time is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET with television coverage on FOX.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 1-1 both straight up and against the spread with both of their games going over the total. Last week the Bucs won their home opener and Tom Brady Raymond James Stadium debut with a 31-17 payout as 7.5-point chalks as the game snuck over the total of 47. The Bucs were actually outgained by the Panthers 427-339 but Carolina committed four costly turnovers that proved to be the difference. Tom Brady was 23 of 35 for 217 yards with a touchdown and interception. Brady improved his quarterback rating for a 78.4 in week one to 80.3 in game two. Overall, his rating on the season is 79.3. Perhaps the star of the game was running back Leonard Fournette with 103 yards on 12 carries and two touchdowns. Wide receiver Mike Evans had a big game too with seven catches good for 104 yards and one TD. Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh collected two sacks for the Bucs, who collected five overall sacks in the contest. So far this season Devin White leads the Bucs with 26 tackles and a team high three tackles for loss.

As a road favorite the Buccaneers are 3-0 against the spread. Tampa Bay has gone over the total in three of their last four as road chalk. As a home dog Denver is 6-2 with the odds. The Broncos have gone under the total in eight of their last 10 as home dogs. In this head to head series the Broncos have covered the last two meetings.  Four of the last five between these teams went under the total.

Denver Broncos Week 2 Recap

The Denver Broncos enter this week with a record of 0-2 straight up but 2-0 against the spread with a 1-1 mark on totals. Last week the Broncos lost at the Pittsburgh Steelers 26-21 as 6-point dogs as the game soared over the total of 41. Pittsburgh led the entire game but let the Broncos slip through the back door on the final touchdown of the game. Of great concern is that Drew Lock was knocked out of the game and is sidelined until November with a shoulder injury. Jeff Driskel was solid in taking over has he was 18 of 34 with 256 yards passing with two touchdowns and an interception. Driskel will be starting for the foreseeable future. Overall, Denver was outgained 410-319. The aggressive Pittsburgh defense went into full attack mode with seven sacks.

Due to the loss of Lock and the public money flowing on the name brand that is Tom Brady it’s no surprise that the Bucs are early chalk. The opening line was quickly bet up three point towards Tampa Bay.
