Chiefs at Broncos odds: Denver 3.5-point home underdogs on TNF

The Denver Broncos are still underdogs at home to the Kansas City Chiefs, but the line has steadily moved in their favor since opening.

NFL: Tennessee Titans at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos opened up fairly large underdogs to the Kansas City Chiefs and it would have likely be double-digits had Denver not won two straight and Kansas City lost two straight, but even so, the deficit stands at 3.5 points at home for the Broncos.

I went over to Oddshark and was surprised to see that their simulations have the Broncos not only covering that spread, but beating the Chiefs 26-23. I’d take that!

If the Broncos defense can continue building on the consecutive touchdown-less games they’ve put together the last two weeks, then they should be able to hold Patrick Mahomes and that offense to a scoring output below their average. That is a vital task, since the Broncos offense has not proven it can score much.

Both units will need to have a good day. That much is obvious.

Do you think they can do it or will the Broncos fall to 2-5 in a few days?


Does the line favor the Broncos or Chiefs too much?
