Denver Broncos (+15) vs. New England Patriots (-15); Total 50
Tebow Mania is still alive and well after an unlikely 29-23 OT win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last week. Denver’s task will be even tougher this week as they travel to New England to face the Patriots who had a bye last week. This game will be a rematch from week #14 when the Patriots went into Denver and crushed them 41-23. The oddsmakers have made the Patriots a -14 to -15 favorite in this game thinking we are going to see more of the same like we did in week #14. Winning this game seems unlikely for the Broncos. Will they at least be able to keep it close?

Denver Broncos vs. New England Patriots Prediction:
I just don’t see the Denver defence stopping this New England offence. I just don’t see the Broncos winning this game either. But laying -14 or -15 points with any team is not something I like to do and I am not about to start here, especially against Tebow. Instead of the Broncos vs. Patriots point spread let’s take a look at the Denver Broncos team total for this game. Currently the Broncos Team Total is 18.5 points at 5 Dimes Sportsbook . Sure the Patriots offence is great but their defence has a ton of holes. In their last 6 games of the season the Patriots defence allowed 20 or more points in every game. On the season the Patriots defence allowed more than 18.5 points in 13 of the 16 games they played (>81%). In week #14 we saw the Broncos have success against the Patriots. In the 1st quarter of that game the Broncos rushed for 157 yards and had a 9 point lead. And we all know if a team gets a big lead (which the Patriots are capable of) they start to play prevent defence and give up a bunch of garbage points late in the game. While it is going to be tough for the Broncos to win this game I do like their chances of scoring more than 18.5 points. I’ll take the Denver Broncos Team Total OVER 18.5 points for 1.91 at 5 Dimes Sportsbook .
