Why Bet The Denver Broncos To Beat The Saints
The Broncos have lost three of the last five games, dropping to 6-3 SU and ATS. They lost 30-20 to the Oakland Raiders in a prime time game last week. Denver averages 23.8 points per game (13th) and allows 18.4 per game (7th).
Denver averages 226.6 passing yards per game (25th). QB Trevor Siemian (1770 yards, 10 TDs & 5 INTs) won’t lose you any games, but you can’t depend on the first year starter to win any either. He completed only 18 of 37 passes for 283 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception last week. WR Emmanuel Sanders (49 rec, 614 yards, 3 TDs) hasn’t caught a touchdown in the last five games. WR Demaryius Thomas (47 rec, 591 yards, 4 TDs) has scored just one touchdown in the last four games.
"No, I feel really good about what Trevor’s doing, but Trevor’s like any other player he’s got to play better," Broncos Gary Kubiak said about his quarterback. " … I’ve got to do a better job for Trevor — (quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp), (offensive coordinator Rick Dennison) — up front we’ve got to do a better job and we can help Trevor running the ball. But he’s making a lot of plays, he got us back in the game with a tremendous play to Jordan (Norwood). He’s doing some good things, but like all of us, like I said, we’re looking to be more consistent."
The problem child in Denver is their run game that averages 96.8 rushing yards per game (23rd). Rookie RB Devontae Booker (80 car, 320 yards, 2 TDs) has averaged 4.0 rushing yards per carry since he took over the starting job from CJ Anderson.
Denver has the 12th-ranked total defense in the NFL. The Broncos allow 183.0 passing yards (1st) and 128.6 rushing yards per game (29th). They have sacked opposite quarterbacks 28 times this season (2nd). T.J. Ward has 60 tackles, and Von Miller has 9.5 sacks.

"I don’t really look at the quality of the wins and losses. We’re not really in a BCS-type format. We’ve just gotta learn from the mistakes", said Saints head coach Sean Payton.
New Orleans averages 326.1 passing yards per game (1st). QB Drew Brees (2689 yards, 21 TDs & 5 INTs) has been outstanding once again.
