Generally, we are loathe to lay double digit spreads, especially in divisional games on a short week. But what exactly do the Broncos have in terms of personnel, scheme, or history--save for Denver covering in the last three--that would compel bettors to take the points?
The visiting Broncos invade Arrowhead with an historically awful defense--last in the league in every single important defensive stat:
Surrendering 7.0 YPP...5.9 YPR...8.5 Yards per pass
Giving up 4.4 TDs per game....
187.6 Opponents rushing YPG

No doubt, Denver has huge value as a Costanza pick, but their horrid defense goes up against an offense looking to hit its stride at home with the best QB and coach in the game.
Knowing full well we could get back-doored by the Wild Horses, we’re sticking with our initial pick--Bet the Arrowheads, laying the 9.5 Points, and play the Under.
