The Broncos and Bengals have identical win-loss records but the two clubs are going in opposite directions in the eyes of NFL bettors. Denver heads into Cincinnati as 4.5-point favourites against the reeling Bengals on Sunday afternoon.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Denver got off to a terrible start to the season but thing have been coming together for the club from Mile High over the past few weeks. The Broncos are coming off a 24-17 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last weekend and they’re 5-1 against the spread over the last six weeks.

The Broncos are in third place in the AFC West standings at 5-6 but they still have a shot at the second wild card playoff berth. Denver won’t catch Kansas City and probably not Los Angeles either in their division but the squad has a chance to make the postseason thanks to a timely two-game winning streak.

Denver 5-5-1 ATS on the year and the Under is 7-3-1 in its 11 contests on the campaign. The Under is 7-2-1 in the Broncos’ last 10 games and 2-1 in their last three games against the Bengals.

Cincinnati has fallen off a cliff since opening the year on a 4-1 tear. The Bengals are just 1-5 (straight up and against the spread) over its last six games with the biggest gut punch coming last weekend when the Cleveland Browns walked out of Paul Brown Stadium with a 35-20 victory.

About 93 percent of Sports Interaction bettors like the Broncos to cover as 5-point road favourites while 83 percent expect the game to go Over the 43.5-point total.

Denver Broncos

There’s no doubt luck has played a part of the Broncos’ recent success. The team owns a +6 takeaway/giveaway margin over the last two weeks. Turnovers hasn’t been the only positive story for Denver over the last few weeks.

Running back Phillip Lindsay has compiled 434 rushing yards and five touchdowns over the last five games. The rookie out of Colorado is seventh in the NFL in rushing yards this season with 780 in 11 games.

Cincinnati Bengals

Marvin Lewis’ name is coming up these days when people start talking about NFL head coaches on the hot seat. Lewis has been the sideline boss in Cincy for almost the entire decade and he just signed a two year extension last January. That might make letting him go problematic for a franchise known for its fiscally conscience tendencies.
