New England at Denver Game Preview

 

The Patriots went into their bye at 6-2 straight-up with a 4-4 record against the spread. Their current SU winning streak stands at four games while going 3-1 ATS with a 21-13 victory against the Los Angeles Chargers as 6.5-point home favorites in Week 8. The total stayed UNDER VietBet’s closing 48-point line in that win and it has now stayed UNDER in New England’s last four games.

 

While Tom Brady and the Patriots’ offense have only averaged 21.8 points over its last four games as opposed to a 27.0-point season scoring average, this unit is still ranked first in the league in both passing yards (302.1) and total yards (411.1) per game. New England’s defense has really stepped up its game after a very shaky start by only allowing a combined 51 points during the four-game winning streak.

 

Denver limps into this game after getting beatdown by Philadelphia 51-23 on Sunday as a seven-point road underdog. It was the Broncos’ fourth loss in a row both SU and ATS. The total has gone OVER VietBet’s closing line in five of their first eight games. The loss dropped their overall record to 3-5 SU and 2-5-1 ATS. Denver is still above .500 at home ATS at 2-1-1 with the total staying UNDER in their last two home games.

 

Brock Osweiler got the start at quarterback in Sunday’s loss and he could do little to reverse his team’s fortunes behind an offensive line filled with holes. He completed 19 of his 38 passing attempts for 208 yards and a score while also tossing two interceptions to go along with three sacks. The Broncos only added another 35 yards on the ground. Right now it looks like head coach Vance Joseph is going to stick with Osweiler for Sunday night.

This is a bad combination for Denver given its current form facing a hot team coming off a bye. I cannot see the Broncos playing all that much better this Sunday with New England adding to their woes with a victory both SU and ATS.
