Why Denver -11.5 point spread?
The Giant’s battered offense
New York sustained some crippling injuries in last week’s loss to the Chargers. Yikes, I can still see Odell Beckham Jr. breaking his ankle and getting taken off the field. Our thoughts go out to him. On top of that Brandon Marshall, Dwayne Harris, and Sterling Shepard suffered injuries as well and look to be out for quite a while. These are key receivers and special teamers in the offense. Their absence is a big blow —especially against a top-rated Broncos defense that is capable of shutting down mediocre receivers and sacking the quarterback early and often. Also, Denver is coming off a bye week so their defense is well rested. Plus they’re playing at home where they swallowed the Cowboys whole a few weeks back.
However, keep in mind that the Giants are 4-1 ATS in their last 6 matches following an ATS loss, and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 matches following a loss. But in the same breath, the Broncos are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 home matches. And the Giants are also a terrible 0-4 ATS in their last 4 matches vs Denver.
Ultimately, the Broncos are unbeaten at Mile High this season. And the Giant’s defense just hasn’t been showing up very well. The G-men have the 28th ranked defense in the league, giving up close to 25 points per match, and around 230 passing yards per match. Plus, a pretty terrible 130 rushing yards per match. We like Denver to cover the spread at home in week 6. But we’re going with a slightly more favourable alternate spread in case the G-men keep it to a 10 point loss.
Eli Manning is not as bad as advertised. He is very highly ranked in pass completion percentage. And has thrown 8 TD’s this season. He still has Shane Vereen and some other reliable offensive weapons.
The Giants are hindered by their plethora of offensive injuries. The Broncos? They’re well rested and ready to roll at home after their bye week. They beat New York semi-decisively at home in week 6. Eli throws a crucial INT, and gets sacked a few times. The Broncos win at home over the Giants —28-15.
