For the second time in three games, the reigning Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos will be underdogs to a team they beat in 2015. First it was to the Carolina Panthers at home and now the Cincinnati Bengals. This time they are 3-point dogs.
Make no mistake, this will be a tough matchup. The three points is basically for home field advantage, but from what I’ve see from the Broncos defense through two weeks I feel good about their chances.
The Bengals, on the other hand, needed a comeback win over the New York Jets on the road and could never muster enough offense in a road loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers last week.
The line originally opened at 3.5 in favor of the Bengals, but has since shifted slightly towards the Broncos favor. The game will come down to the Broncos offensive line against the Bengals defensive line. Trevor Siemian is still too inexperienced and unpredictable to trust without a strong running game to keep the defense honest.
What do you think of this line?
