In one of the top two games of the week the Saints travel to Mile High to take on the AFC West leading Denver Broncos 3-3 (3-3 ATS). The New Orleans Saints 2-4 (3-3 ATS) have now won 2 in a row after beating TB 35-28 on the road last weekend.

Denver had a bye last week and has had lots of time to prepare for the Saints offense. We have two of the best QB’s in the NFL going head-to-head this week on prime time Sunday night football and we should be in for a high scoring game at Mile High.

NFL Week 8: NO vs. DEN Betting Lines

The Broncos were instilled as a -4.5 home favorite against the Saints this week. Action has been coming in on the Saints, yet the spread is up to -6 points at BetOnline and currently OTB at Bovada although the spread could drop before game time Sunday.

Jimmy Graham has been practicing all week and he could suit up to play this weekend in Denver. If Graham ends up starting then I think the spread will drop a bit before kick-off. Apart from Graham there aren’t many injuries on either team to worry about.

Can the Broncos Cover Against the Spread at Mile High?

I wish I bet this spread earlier in the week when it was lower, but I’m waiting to see if the line drops. My money is going to be on the Broncos to cover ATS, as they’re tough at home. Denver is 2-1 at home with wins over the Steelers (31-19) and Raiders (37-6).

After starting the year 0-4 the Saints are now 2-4 after picking up wins against the Chargers (31-24) and Buccaneers (35-28). I was unimpressed by the Saints wins though and this team seems like it has problems with head coach Sean Payton on the sidelines.

The reason I like Denver at home is because of the Saints defense mainly. This season the Saints defense hasn’t stopped anyone and they currently allow an average of 30.3 PPG (29th), 304.5 PYPG (30th) and 161 RYPG (31st), which is absolutely horrible.

Peyton Manning should have no problem throwing all over the Saint secondary. Denver ranks 4th in passing offense (290.8 PYPG) and 7th in points scored (28.3 PPG). The big question is whether or not the Broncos will be able to keep Brees out of the end zone.

The Broncos struggle against the run (115.2 RYPG – 18th), but the Saints don’t run the football well. Sproles isn’t 100% either, so it will come down to whether the Broncos 10th ranked passing defense (215.3 PYPG) can stop Brees and I think they will limit him.

New Orleans Saints vs. Denver Broncos Picks

Bet on the Denver Broncos -6 (-110) @ BetOnline

My prediction in the Broncos vs. Saints game is on Denver to cover the -6 point spread. With Denver at home and off their bye week they should be ready to make a push for the playoffs now that there schedule will be lightening up a bit down the stretch.
