The Broncos are now 2-5 this season, only winning against the Titans and the Chargers. They lost to the Chiefs in Week 7 and could not get their offense rolling. It won’t be much easier for Denver when they face the Colts’ stout defense.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Broncos were beaten, badly, by the Kansas City Chiefs last Thursday. Fans had to watch while their team folded under pressure, eventually losing 30-6. Joe Flacco and company were riding a two-game win streak (their only two wins so far this season) but had no answer for the Kansas City defense.

The Colts, on the other hand, are coming off a win against one of the best teams in the league, the Houston Texans. Indianapolis got the final score to 30-23 at home last Sunday.

Historically between these two teams, it’s the Broncos with more wins –  the series is 14-10, and Denver has won the last two. Most recently was in December 2017, when the Broncs won 25-13 in Indianapolis. The under is 7-3 in Denver’s last ten on the road. The Colts are 3-2 against the spread in their last five at home.

Denver Broncos

As if the 30-6 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs wasn’t enough of a stain on the Broncos season, they also had to watch their quarterback get demolished throughout the entire game. Joe Flacco somehow walked off the field at the end of the night, after being sacked nine times. Nine times. Those sacks cost 72 yards in total.

The Chiefs’ pass rush made the offensive line look terrible, and that’s saying a lot considering that this O-line is already ranked 28th in the league in sacked quarterback percentage. Flacco isn’t a terrible QB, but without any protection, he simply can’t get things going for the Broncos offense.

Indianapolis Colts

Fans weren’t sure what an Andrew Luck-less Colts offence would look like this season, but for the most part, they’ve been pleasantly surprised. Jacoby Brissett has been fairly solid so far as they enter this week with a 4-2 record and the top spot in the AFC South

Brissett did well last Sunday during their 30-23 home win over the Houston Texans, going 26 for 39 for a total of 326 passing yards, and threw for four touchdowns with zero interceptions. It was a breakout game for second year WR Zach Pascal, who Jacoby found for six catches and two touchdowns. He recorded 106 receiving yards.

The greatest concern for the Broncos coming into this one should be the Colts record when it comes to sacking the quarterback. They’re ninth in the league in defensive quarterback sacked percentage. Not great news for Flacco.
