The Denver Broncos are on the NBC Sunday Night Football stage for a second consecutive week, but this weekend they are playing away from the friendly confines of Mile High Stadium. Peyton Manning and company are in Foxborough, Massachusetts for a showdown with Tom Brady and the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium. Kickoff in Sunday’s clash between these two AFC stalwarts is set for 8:30pm ET. The latest Broncos vs Patriots Odds from Sports Betting Online are favoring Denver at -2 against the spread; the NFL Odds game total is set at 53.5 points.
Denver Broncos vs New England Patriots (+2, Over/Under 53.5): The Broncos successfully emerged, as most believed they would, in Sunday night’s showdown with AFC West rival Kansas City, scoring a 27-17 victory at Mile High. Denver’s offense and Peyton Manning were not in peak form as evidenced by the final score, but they still finished with 427 total yards.
Whether or not New England is better than Kansas City is up for debate, but suffice to say the Broncos face a more difficult challenge this week with the game being at Gillette Stadium. It is apparent to most that New England is not as intimidating as it once was; however, the Patriots are still a good team, particularly at home.
Tom Brady and company may feel they have something to prove as well after suffering their third consecutive road loss on Monday night in Charlotte. The game ended under controversial circumstances, but the Patriots had ample opportunity to get the better of the Panthers throughout the game and they were not able to do it. As a result, at least partially anyway, New England finds itself in a rare home underdog role this weekend.
The last time the Patriots played as a home underdog was December of 2006; they were getting 12.5 points from the Texans and won the game 40-7.
Notable Trends: The Patriots are 4-1 both straight up and against the spread in their last five meetings with Denver. New England is 8-2 against the spread in its last 10 games as a home underdog.
