Week 13 NFL Betting: Denver Broncos vs. Minnesota Vikings Odds, Prediction, and Pick

Denver Broncos

The Tim Tebow show rolls on this weekend, as the Denver Broncos head to Minnesota to take on the Vikings.  The Broncos are riding an incredible win streak thanks in part to quarterback Tim Tebow.  The offense has made some serious changes to play towards Tebow’s strengths, and no player in the NFL has the will to win like Tebow does.  Their four game win streak will be on the line against a Vikings team who is on a three game winning streak, and has only posted two wins this entire season.  The team is in a bit of a rebuilding phase right now, and rookie quarterback Christian Ponder is definitely going through a learning curve.  The Panthers have also been playing without star running back Adrian Peterson thanks to an injury.

While the Broncos have won four games in a row, it hasn’t always been pretty.  Their last two wins have come by a combined four points, BUT those were against the Jets and Chargers, both teams who had high hopes when the season began.  The Vikings are going to need some help this week at home, but they do come into the game favored.  This game will be played in Minnesota, so the Vikings do have the home field advantage, and it will kick off at 1:00pm EST.  Can Tim Tebow work his magic once again and keep his 6-5 Broncos in the Playoff hunt?  The way that the first place Oakland Raiders have been playing lately, they will definitely need to keep on the winning track for the remainder of the season to catch up.

I’d love to put out some crazy stats which would help me put up an argument for the Minnesota Vikings here, but to put it simply, I just can’t bet against Tim Tebow here.  The guy just knows how to win, and he does it when it counts.  Betting against him in a situation is basically asking for trouble.  Of course, it makes life a bit easier when the Vikings are 2-9, and are in contention for a top pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.  I think that the Broncos get the job done here thanks to another strong fourth quarter.

Prediction:  Denver Broncos- 27 Minnesota Vikings- 21

Free Pick

I really am not sure as to why the Vikings are favored here, but I’d assume that it has something to do with the fact that they are at home, and that the Broncos seem to consistently be playing close games week in and week out.  John Fox has a good game plan for this Broncos team though, and I think this will be a pick before game time, and it could potentially even have the Broncos favored in the end.  Get on this one early, and I’ll be picking the Denver Broncos to get the win and the cover here on the road.  We can thank Tim Tebow once again it seems!

Pick:  Denver Broncos +1
