Which disappointing preseason horse contender would you bet on to rebound from bad losses in the Week 5 Thursday Nighter – the Denver Broncos or the Indianapolis Colts?
Yeah…. The Broncos opened as 2.5 point favorites and were quickly bet to -3.5 as of Monday morning (watch line moves during the week) but have hardly inspired bettor confidence, Now they proceed without RB Javonte Williams, possibly freeing Russell Wilson to ‘cook.’
The Colts meanwhile should be 0-4 and rank last in scoring, not quite as bad as 29th-ranked Denver. And they proceed minus Jonathan Taylor, out with an ankle sprain, which makes Nyheim Hines an interesting TD prop bet at +165 at Draft Kings.
UNDER bet anyone? The line opened at 43 and crept up a half point by Monday, but was 42 Thursday. All kinds of trends point UNDER, in addition to the recent form of two anemic offenses. BetRivers reported that nearly 70% of the totals money bet on the game was on the UNDER.
