Bengals vs. Broncos Predictions: Are the Broncos a Sucker Bet?
Broncos vs Bengals Â is going to be a very popular game this week. The Denver Broncos head into Monday night football in a must win situation. For a team that started off so well, they have stumbled of late and there is still a chance that this team could miss the playoffs. They have a tremendous defense, but the offense has sputtered of late and the Peyton Manning news is not going to help.
The Broncos vs Bengals game is one that is loaded with plenty of implications. That is why the Broncos are getting plenty of betting action this week as (-3.5) point favorites. In fact the Las Vegas Westgate Super Contest, which is the biggest and best football picking contest on the planet, has the Broncos as the No. 1 selected team this week.
According to the NFL betting consensus, the Broncos are also getting plenty of love from the football betting public. The Bengals vs. Broncos odds show that the Broncos opened as (-3.5) point favorites and that line has been moved to (-3) at Sports Betting Online, the best place to bet on football. The NFL Consensus shows that 71% of the bets are on the Broncos.
The Bengals are also starting A.J. McCarron who has been a decent game manager in the absence of Andy Dalton. He will be without star tight end Tyler Eifert and will be playing with a banged up super star in wideout A.J. Green. Â If the Bengals do have a bright spot it is the way that they play defense. The Bengals are allowing a league-low 17.4 points per game.
The problem is that the broncos have showed weakness on defense and they have lost two in a row. The Broncos were torched by Pittsburgh’s passing game, but they are tied for the league lead with 47 sacks and feature the No. 1 run defense. They are also getting beaten badly in the second half of football games as they have been outscored 33-0 in the last two outings.
This is one of those situations where it is too good to be true. The Bengals will be able to run the ball against the Broncos (Jeremy Hill rushed for 147 yards and a TD in a 37-28 win over Denver last season) and the Bengals defense will stymie a Broncos offense that has been stuck over the last two games. Since December of last year, the Broncos as home favorites are just 2-5 against-the-spread and they lose on Monday night football against the Bengals.
