Denver Broncos (4-2) at New England Patriots (3-2)
Monday, 8:35 pm Eastern – ESPN
SBG Global Opening Line: Patriots – 3 , Total 46
It is quite clear now that the New England Patriots are not the same team they were a year ago. With Tom Brady out for the season due to injury the Patriots have had to turn to Matt Cassel at quarterback and although he has had his moments, he is not ready to start in the NFL. The Patriots have scored more than 20 points only once this season. The defense is also suffering, giving up 89 points in their last three games. SBG Global reports that early NFL betting has the public taking Broncos on the Road.
The Patriots may be favored on Monday but history is not on their side. They have struggled against Denver even when they had good teams. The Patriots lost at home in 2006 to the Broncos and that was with a healthy Tom Brady. The Broncos have won 16 of the last 19 meetings between the two teams.
If New England can’t get their offense going this week then they may never get it going. The Broncos have allowed 400 or more total yards three times this season. The potent Denver offense is also struggling a bit. They have scored less than 20 points in each of their last three games.
