The Denver Broncos open 2.5 point favorites over the Cincinnati Bengals. Not exactly a ringing endorsement for the home team.

The Denver Broncos (3-6) have opened 2.5-point favorites over the visiting Cincinnati Bengals (3-6), which isn’t exactly a ringing endorsement for the home team as they usually get spotted a field goal for being at home.

The dysfunction from the Broncos can now almost entirely be traced back to poor coaching and poor game planning. Head Coach Vance Joseph has no answers and is providing very little leadership for the team as the wheels continue to fall off week after week.

After four weeks of offensive ineptitude, the offense is at least serviceable now, but the defensive and special teams has become inept.

If you are betting person, you may want to take the Bengals either way. This Broncos team is finding ways to beat themselves at every turn and that may end at some point this season, but who would want to take the chance of putting money on it at any point?
