The Denver Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguars will collide on the NFL moneyline this weekend, giving football fans the rare opportunity to see Peyton Manning and company adjust to what’s likely to be one of the widest point spreads in the sportsbook this season. Can the Super Bowl favorite Broncos cover their 27-point advantage?
Some things to consider before betting on the projected blowout is that the Jags will not only sport one of the league’s most futile offenses, but they’ll do so on the road in the Mile High City.
Jacksonville, of course, is on the fast track to not win Super Bowl XLVIII and was the first team bumped off of the NFL futures. The Broncos, in contrast, top the list with 5/2 odds of their own. Might that have something to do with the fact that Denver’s offense has posted 51 or more points in each of the past two weeks while the Jaguars have posted 51 points total?
Can Chad Henne outgun Manning in the Week 6 affair?
If nothing else, this game marks an opportunity for the upset of the season, so NFL fans need not be alarmed if they find themselves oddly compelled to pull up a seat and see whether or not the Jaguars can at least keep this game to within four touchdowns.
