Denver Broncos

The Broncos will have an actual quarterback in the lineup this week – but that might be about the only positive thing you can say about the visitors as they tangle with the Chiefs.

COVID-19 protocols left the Broncos to start former collegiate quarterback-turned-practice-roster-wide-receiver Kendall Hinton in last week’s one-sided loss to New Orleans. The Chiefs have no such issues as they continue to dominate the AFC.

NFL Week 13 SNF Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Chiefs are favoured by two converted touchdowns in the second meeting between these teams this season. Kansas City rolled to a 43-16 victory in Denver in the previous encounter, and that result, among other things, has led to a 92-percent majority of Sports Interaction bettors siding with the home team despite the huge spread. The Chiefs have been a cover bettor’s dream, having gone 15-5 ATS in their previous 20 games overall.

There’s a much smaller consensus when it comes to the total, with a slim 52 percent majority of Sports Interaction respondents going with the U51.5. A big part of the groundswell toward the Under could be based on the uncertainty surrounding the Denver offence – but there are other trends in play here. Most notably, the teams have finished below the number in four of their past five meetings, with only their last showdown going above the total in that span.

Denver Broncos

Denver’s trio of actual quarterbacks – Drew Lock, Brett Rypien and Blake Bortles – have all tested negative for COVID-19 and returned to practice Wednesday. Look for Lock to get the nod Sunday night at Arrowhead Field as the Broncos try to get back on track; he’d love an opportunity to atone for a rough showing against Kansas City the last time these teams met, when he finished with 256 passing yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs remain the class of the AFC, but they’ve had their share of nervous moments in recent weeks with each of their previous three games decided by four or fewer points. And they’d like to extend their winning ways without having to rely so heavily on wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who was the whole darned show last week with 269 receiving yards and three scores vs. Tampa Bay. Hill has 582 receiving yards and eight touchdowns in his last four games.
