(NFL) Baltimore vs. Denver, 09/05/2013 4:30 PM, Score: 27 - 49
Point Spread: -7.00 | -120.00 Denver (Home)
Result: Win
On Thursday our Opening selection in the NFL is on The Denver Broncos. Game 452 at 8:35 eastern. If ever there was a game circled on a teams schedule its this one here tonight. Denver is chomping at the bit to get the sour taste of last seasons playoff loss to Baltimore out of their mouths. The Broncos epic defensive lapses single handedly lost them the game. They were 9 point favorites in that game and are once again laying a touchdown to Baltimore who wont have the leadership of Ray Lewis to propel them. While Baltimore did make some nice acquisitions on defense led by the E. Dumerville pick up. The feeling is that they wont be able to gel right away and this will be a tough team to stop tonight. Denver upgraded their run game with M. Ball and still have Moreno coming out of the back field. Baltimore has new faces on offense too as A. Boldin a big catch receiver is gone. We look for this game to be more similar to Denver's 34-17 win in the prior game they played last season. Denver has won 9 of the last 10 home openers will be tough once again on defense and has a solid system in their favor. Super Bowl Champions have failed to cover 80+% in opening games when going into revenge and that system goes perfect one more little nugget from the database With Baltimore 1-7 ats when they lose as a road dog, 1-4 ats on Thursday and 1-5 ats as a dog of 7 or more. We will back the Broncos in this one.
