According to the current odds, the Carolina Panthers are three-point favorites on the road against the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football. The home team typically gets spotted three points, so the Panthers really are heavily favored in this game.
The line opened plus one in the Broncos favor, but Vegas is not a fan of Trevor Siemian making his first start against the Panthers defense.
Despite being the reigning Super Bowl champions and coming off a two touchdown dominating performance over the Panthers in February, the Broncos must once again earn the respect they just can’t seem to get from anywhere outside of Denver.
The good news is. T.J. Ward likes to be fed this kind of disrespect.
He’ll need all of the feeding he can get, because this Broncos defense will once again have to carry this team to victory after victory.
The chase for Super Bowl LI begins Thursday.
