Expectations were high for the Denver Broncos entering the 2016 NFL season, but the reigning Super Bowl Champs have been an inconsistent bunch through nine weeks. Head coach Jon Fox will hope a Week 10 date with the New Orleans Saints can cure what ails his team after last week’s 30-20 setback to the Oakland Raiders.
- The Saints are 1-6 SU in their last seven games after consecutive wins.
- The total has gone OVER in the Broncos' last four games as road underdogs.
- The Broncos are 9-1 SU and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games on the road after losing their most recent road game.
Sportsbooks initially set the Saints as 1.5-point home faves with a total of 48.
The OVER is a fantastic play when the Broncos and Saints square off. In the last five meetings between the clubs, the OVER is a solid 4-1. The OVER is also 4-0 in the Broncos’ last four as road underdogs.
New Orleans’ reputation for its high-flying offense and leaky defense has been on display in 2016. The Saints lead the NFL in yards per game at 434.5, but they’re third last in yards allowed at 408.5. With that in mind, is it any surprise that the OVER is 8-1 in New Orleans’ last nine in Louisiana?
Denver has had a major edge in this series of late. In their last four matchups, the Broncos are 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS.
After the loss to the Raiders, Denver now sits in third place in the AFC West behind Oakland and Kansas City. At this point, it’s far more likely the Broncos miss the postseason altogether than them winning the Super Bowl again.
