QB Tom Brady already won three Super Bowls, and the player has a 10-5 SU record (9-6 ATS) against his rival Peyton Manning, who was able to win 5 NFL MVP awards. Now, fans and local bookies can’t wait to see both QB’s face off once again when the Patriots (6-2) and the Broncos (6-1) lock horns on Sunday in what many true live betting fans consider to be a rematch of the AFC Championship Game last year between the teams.
Denver’s betting line opened with the Broncos being the favorites by four points, and 55.5 was the total.
Denver were beaten six weeks ago by the Seahawks in overtime, and now they’re 4-0 ATS and SU after last Thursday’s game against the Chargers, where Denver won 35-21.The Broncos were able to outrush San Diego 139-61, outgain them 425-306, and were able to pick off QB Philip Rivers on two occasions, both of them covering as the favorites by nine points.
Denver have a ranking of only sixth place in the NFL when it comes to total offense, fourth place in their total defense, and against the run they’re at first place, as in their ground game they’re able to hold their opponents to only 72 yards per meeting. However, the Broncos’ offense can be thanked for some of it, as it’s gives them a lead to protect in almost every occasion. Finally, Denver was just able to take out New England last January 26-16 in the title game of the AFC, and outgained the Patriots 507-320, covering the game as the favorites by five points.
After bad performances made against Oakland and Kansas City, the talk was that New England might be done as contenders for titles in the conference. Ever since then, the Patriots are 3-1 ATS and 4-0 SU after they thrashed Bears 51-23 last week. At the half, New England had a lead of 38-7, and things were easy for them since, as they were eventually able to record 487 offensive yards.
The same amount of TD passes as incompletions (five in total) were thrown by Brady, and on 17 carries, RB Jonas Gray was able to run for 86 yards. Sportsbook Software agents can see that this season, the Patriots have a ranking of 12th place in total defense, and in total offense they are 10th.
Even though Manning is obviously a key piece for the Broncos, the team is not all about the QB. Ronnie Hillman is doing a very good job at RB taking the place of Montee Ball. Now, we all know that the Patriots are not a team to take lightly at all, but the Broncos are the ones who have the edge, and could win this showdown.
