Being shutout on the road will significantly impact your odds with Vegas the following week and the Broncos are a full touchdown underdogs to the Chiefs this week. The only money going their way this week is from the sharps, which isn’t as good as it sounds since the Broncos can still lose for them to win.
This team as an underdog is significantly more dangerous than this team as a favorite. They will come out and play the Chiefs with everything they got.
“Nobody thinks we can beat anybody right now,” C.J. Anderson said this week. “We’re going to be underdogs as long as we wear blue and orange. Since I’ve been here, I’ve been an underdog. I don’t think I’ve been favored in too many games in my career. It’s fine. We’re not too much worried about everybody who does what y’all do—sit, write and predict. I can predict you’ll write this. You may write something else (laughing). That’s how it goes.”
After letting my dismay with the offense get the best of me for most of this week, I’ve decided to look at ways the Broncos can actually beat the Chiefs. It all flows from the arm of Trevor Siemian.
I think he comes into this game making some big time throws against the Chiefs mostly-man coverage schemes. The Broncos defense has an off day, but the shootout comes out in their favor with a late turnover to seal victory.
Prediction: Broncos 30, Chiefs 27.
