Sputtering Broncos are in Tough on the Road vs High-Flying Eagles

The Denver Broncos haven’t been used to playing the underdog role in recent seasons, yet sportsbooks have them in unfamiliar territory for their Week 9 matchup with the NFL-best Philadelphia Eagles.

Xbet opened the Broncos as 7.5-point road underdogs with a total of 43.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Broncos are 11-3 SU in their last 14 games in the early afternoon.
  • The Eagles are 0-5 SU in their last five games on a six-game SU winning streak.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Eagles’ last seven games.

The last time Denver was given this many points came all the way back in 2011 when Tim Tebow was under center for a game against the Patriots. Tebow and the Broncos got blown out by New England 41-23 in a game where the Broncos didn’t come close to covering the +7.5 spread.

Dating back to the 2000 campaign, the Broncos are 3-14 SU and 6-11 ATS when tabbed as dogs of 7.5 points or more. That’s bad news for this year’s club, which is experiencing some major issues on offense, as the Broncos have gone 1-4 SU and averaged just 12.2 points over their last five games.

On the other hand, the Eagles are averaging 32.3 points over their past four games. Many fans in the City of Brotherly Love are dreaming of a Super Bowl appearance right now, and with no other major contender in the NFC, it’s a realistic possibility at this point. Philly bolstered its running game at the trade deadline by dealing a fourth-round pick in the upcoming NFL draft to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for stud running back Jay Ajayi.

Home-field advantage has been massive when these teams have gotten together over the years, as visiting clubs are 0-6 SU and 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings between the Broncos and Eagles.
