Broncos-Giants odds: Denver heavy favorites on Sunday Night Football

New, comments

We don’t like it when the Denver Broncos are two touchdown favorites over a team, even if its the 0-5 New York Giants.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos opened 9-point favorites over the New York Giants last week, but that was before the Giants lost four wide receivers in one game - three of them to IR. The line now stands between 12 and 13 points.

Those odds are ridiculous, especially for an offense that can sometimes score points and sometimes not. They dropped 42 on the Dallas Cowboys, but then against a really bad Oakland Raiders secondary could only muster 16.

If I were a betting man, I’d avoid this game like the plague.

The Broncos need this game to keep pace with the Kansas City Chiefs who are now 5-0, so who cares if they cover or not.

Is this line too high in favor of the Broncos?
