Week 16 NFL Betting: Denver Broncos vs. Buffalo Bills Odds, Prediction, and Pick

Denver Broncos

The Tim Tebow show continues once again.  He’s a popular man in the NFL, and he’s definitely a popular man in terms of my betting thoughts.  It’s not exactly him that I’m loving this week, but it’s simply this game in general that I’m a big fan.  The Denver Broncos head on the road now to take on a Buffalo Bills team who has lost seven straight games, and seems to be headed for an early draft pick.  What’s incredibly shocking about the Bills season to this point is that they are 5-9 overall, but they looked SO good to start the season, and just completely tailed off.  The Bills suffered an even tougher loss than their actual in game losses as they lost running back Fred Jackson for the year.  The remainder of the season will be totally on the shoulders of quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and back-up running back CJ Spiller.

Now for the Broncos team.  What exactly are we supposed to say about the Tebow-led squad who simply seems to know how to win.  Sure, they suffered a set back last week against an incredibly strong team in the New England Patriots, but it’s definitely a learning curve right?  The Broncos will get it back together, whether it’s this week or next, and I think that we could be seeing this team in the playoffs this season.  The Broncos are 8-6 overall, and control their own destiny heading into the final two weeks of the season.  John Fox has also been a big part of this teams success in recent weeks, and this week’s game on the road against Buffalo will be a big one for the team.

The game will kick off at 1:00pm EST on December 24th, and will be a nice Christmas Eve day game for all of our NFL fans out there.

Odds and Sports Betting Line

Denver Broncos: -2.5

Buffalo Bills: +2.5

Free Prediction

It’s more than tough to pick the Buffalo Bills during this seven game losing streak that they’re on.  Unfortunately, I don’t think that they’ll snap the losing streak this weekend either, but I don’t think that it’ll go like the typical Tim Tebow game does.  I like the Broncos to jump all over Buffalo and for the team to win in much easier fashion than many people are expecting.  Tebow loves the fourth quarter wins and drama, but don’t expect him to have to deal with the tough comeback in this one.  I like the Broncos to win it by a 10 on the road.

Prediction:  Denver Broncos- 24 Buffalo Bills- 14

Free Pick

While the Bills are only +2.5, it’s not a tough argument to put up that they should be bigger underdogs than that.  They really haven’t shown much potential for a turn around or much life in any of their games in this losing streak.  So in the end, I’ll buy into the Tebow hype this weekend, and I’ll be picking the Denver Broncos to get the win and also cover the -2.5 spread as well.

Pick:  Denver Broncos -2.5
