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

New, comments

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?
