The Denver Broncos (5-9) opened 4.5-point underdogs to the Washington Redskins (6-8). However, the Broncos have dominated their opponents over the last two weeks by a combined score of 48-13, while the Redskins have been blown out in two of their last three games.

Given those facts, the line has shifted considerably towards the Broncos in this game and now stands at a 3-point advantage for Washington.

Even so, with rumors swirling that Paxton Lynch will be given the start over Brock Osweiler, anyone betting on the Broncos is likely going to be disappointed. Lynch has never looked good on the field in any of his starts - both preseason and regular season. That doesn’t bode well for the offense in this one.

Who do you think should be starting for the Broncos down the stretch? Osweiler is likely the only quarterback to start this year that is deserving of a roster spot going in 2018, but that will be unlikely give his history with John Elway.
