Broncos Saints odds: Denver a road underdog in New Orleans

New, comments

The Denver Broncos are reeling and are now underdogs on the road against the New Orleans Saints.

NFL: New Orleans Saints at San Francisco 49ers Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos (6-3) are coming off a very tough road loss last week, while the New Orleans Saints (4-4) have won two straight. The Broncos opened even money to the Saints, but line has moved solidly towards New Orleans as of this posting.

With both Derek Wolfe and Aqib Talib likely out, Denver’s beleaguered defense will face a red hot New Orleans offense. It’s the classic “catch them at the right time” kind of deal that will likely lead to a loss.

I say likely, because the Broncos offense has been on life support for multiple weeks now. Against one of the worst defenses in the league last week, they put up 20 points - mostly in garbage time. The Saints are just as bad, but how is anyone to expect the offense is suddenly going to be efficient again?

Here’s to me being wrong!
