Two AFC West teams with identical records will soon face off. Let’s take a look at the week 12 Monday Night Football betting odds set by BetVictor.
The Kansas City Chiefs and the Denver Broncos face off for the first time in the 2016 NFL season this Monday night. Both teams come into the game with identical records, and a win here will help push one of them into the small list of Super Bowl contenders.
The Chiefs recently had their five-game hot streak ended in a close loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but they still boast one of the best current records in the NFL with 7 wins, 3 losses. One of their biggest strengths this season has been their defense, which has managed to lead the league in turnovers with 13 interceptions and 9 fumble recoveries, due largely to the master coverage of Marcus Peters.
Denver was left with an uncertain future after legendary QB Peyton Manning made UK gambling news by retiring after winning the 2015 Super Bowl. In his place is second-year pro Trevor Siemian, who has been wildly impressive by becoming the first QB to pass for 300 yards and throw four touchdowns in his first road start. An injury to Siamian led to further speculation about the future of the Broncos, but he is back and remains to play at the top of his game.
Chiefs vs. Broncos betting odds
Despite both teams entering the week 12 Monday Night Football game with identical records, it is Denver that comes in as the betting favorite, according to BetVictor. This is likely due to the Broncos’ most recent win over the New Orleans Saints, where they showed off a well rounded game that has some online sportsbooks in the UK predicting they could win the Super Bowl. Denver’s odds to win against the Chiefs are currently at 1/2.
The Chiefs can certainly win this game, especially if they can pressure Trevor Siamian and utilize their elite running game. The Chiefs odds to beat the Broncos this Monday are currently set at 8/5.
