Betting Denver Broncos
The Broncos are the road dogs according to the best online sportsbooks. Last week the Broncos resorted to undrafted rookie wide receiver Kendall Hinton to quarterback the team. This was after all of their QBs were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and missed a 31-3 loss to the New Orleans Saints.
“Watching it was a gut-wrenching feeling the whole time,” starting QB Drew Lock, who returned to practice Wednesday, said. Backup Brett Rypien also practiced on Wednesday. Another activated veteran, Blake Bortles, is isolated as the Broncos hope to prevent another coronavirus shutdown.
Lock, Rypien and Bortles neglected to wear masks last Tuesday around another QB, Jeff Driskel, who tested positive for COVID-19, resulting in the NFL sidelining the other QBs because of contact tracing protocols.
“We want to make sure that we’re preventing the spread of the virus,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said on Wednesday during the halftime of the thrice rescheduled Baltimore-Pittsburgh game. “That’s why when we see high-risk, close-contact, like we had in Denver, regardless of the position group we’re going to make sure those players aren’t in a position where they can affect others.”
Each Denver quarterback was fined for their actions and took some flak from Vic Fangio, although the Broncos head coach did not see more backlash from the uproar created. “I think the guys are ready to move past it,” Fangio said. “It was a mistake and we paid a price for it. It’s what happened with the game. It’s time for all of us to move on.”
Denver running back Phillip Lindsay did not practice on Wednesday but is expected to play. Others who did not practice include tackle Demar Dotson, safety Trey Marshall and outside linebacker Malik Reed. Cornerback Bryce Callahan was placed on injury reserve.
Now that things have gone back to what may be deemed normal, the Broncos will attempt to end a 10-game losing skid against the Chiefs. The latter won the season’s first division matchup 43-16 on October 25. Kansas City’s passing game is firing on all cylinders.
Betting Kansas City Cheifs
The Chiefs are home chalk, per the best offshore sports betting sites. Tyreek Hill is second in the league in receiving yards with 1,021 yards. Tight end Travis Kelce is third with 978. Mahomes leads the NFL with 3,497 yards, 30 touchdowns, and two interceptions in 423 attempts.
Hill has a league-best 13 receiving touchdowns, three of them in a 27-24 win last week at Tampa Bay. He set a Chiefs record with six catches of 20+ yards. When Sammy Watkins returned last week after a hamstring injury, the seasoned receiver immediately took note of his teammates’ efficiency.
“I’m just trying to catch up,” Watkins said. Kansas City starting cornerback Bashaud Breeland missed practice on Wednesday but is expected to play. Linebacker Dorian O’Daniel did not practice and defensive end Tanoh Kpassagnon was limited.
Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs NFL Pick
Users of the best offshore sports betting sites should go with the Chiefs, although the line is pretty thick. It’s hard to justify taking Denver here. Especially after that ghastly offensive display versus the Saints. The Broncos had just 112 total yards, with a 2.6 yards-per-play average. Also, three turnovers, just six first downs and a 1-of-10 record on third-down conversion. There’s nowhere to go but up for the Broncos offense, but KC nonetheless covers here.
