Broncos Have Edge in Blakeman Games

Clete Blakeman Super Bowl 50

If you’re a dedicated Denver Broncos bettor and you’re excited to get your wager down on Super Bowl 50, you’ll no doubt be happy to see that Clete Blakeman and his crew has been tasked with calling the game.

The Broncos, presently 6-point underdogs at online shop Bovada have had great success with Blakeman working their games since he made the jump from field judge to referee back in 2010. In five games since the move (including the postseason), Denver has gone 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS when Blakeman’s crew is calling games.

The last Broncos game that Blakeman worked was a 47-14 beatdown of the Oakland Raiders back on December 28, 2014. The Broncos closed as 15.5-point home favorites and easily covered the spread.

The one contest in there when the Broncos did not cover the spread was a 24-17 SU win over the San Diego Chargers in the playoffs back on January 12, 2014, a game where books closed the Broncos as a 7.5-point favorite.

How have the Panthers done in Clete Blakeman games you ask? Well, Carolina has played in four games with Blakeman and crew officiating and has posted a 2-2 SU and ATS mark. Blakeman actually worked this season’s meeting with the Houston Texans on September 20, a game which Carolina prevailed 24-17 and covered the number as a 3-point favorite.

While NFL referee statistics and/or trends shouldn’t be the sole basis to lay a bet, taking a look at the zebras working a given game should defintely be a part of your capping practice.
