If you have bet against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos so far in the 2013 NFL Season, shame on you, you should have known better. The Broncos are easily covering the spread against opponents week in and week out.
Over the last two seasons the Broncos are 10-1 against the spread as a favorite of 3.5 to 9.5 points. 14-5 in all games and an insane 13-2 just as a favorite. It seems the spread can’t get high enough to cover the high-powered, error free, Manning led offense.
Eventually all good things must come to an end. The first six weeks of the 2007 season the New England Patriots were on a roll. They covered the spread and hit on the over each week until the number began to look astronomical and impossible for the Patriots to cover.
Many thought last week would end the streak. The Eagles were well rested with nine days off and the Broncos were coming off a Monday night game. A double digit spread (10.5) to an Eagles offense that was No. 1 in rushing and No. 2 in total offense was tempting, but it wasn’t time to pull the trigger.
Is it time to bet against the Broncos?
The Broncos remind me of my team on Madden, I keep scoring and scoring.
The numbers don’t lie.
Head-to-head against the Cowboys, Denver is 6-2 straight up and 6-1-1 against the spread since 1980.
As a road favorite the Broncos are 6-2 straight up and 7-1 against the spread.
It only gets better against the NFC East as a whole, 8-1 against the spread in the last nine games verses the division.
Denver will continue the streak, at least this week..
