Broncos vs Jets odds: Denver huge 10.5-point home favorites in Week 3

I can’t remember the last time the Denver Broncos were double-digit favorites in a game, but it sure does feel good to have oddmakers this confident.

The Denver Broncos have had a solid start to 2021 beating two teams on the road that were not even close to being considered playoff teams this season, but a road wins are road wins. Now they welcome the New York Jets to Denver. With another team considered one of the worst teams in the NFL, oddmakers have the Broncos huge favorites at home in Week 3.

Back during the Peyton Manning era, I would have loved this 10.5-point spread at home. However, I think its too early in this team’s fight back to relevance for such a huge spread. The second I saw it I felt a little bit of anxiety over this week’s game. I can’t help but feel like the trap is being sprung on Denver this week.

The Jets are not a good football team, though, so hopefully this just means Denver wins and doesn’t cover the huge spread. To satisfy my early week anxiety, I’m going to predict a 20-17 win at home for the Broncos here. I sure hope it’s not even close to this being this close, but a win is a win.
