The Broncos and Patriots will try it again in Week 6 after their game was twice postponed last week.
The Broncos are 10-point underdogs going into their Week 6 matchup with the Patriots with the total points mark set at 45. The Broncos are +340 on the moneyline while the Patriots are -400.
After unexpected long layoffs, the Patriots will try to climb back over the .500 mark, while the Broncos will look to win two straight and cover for the fourth time in five games since Colorado legal sports betting went live. Let’s take a look at the line, spread, total, and odds for Broncos-Patriots as of October 24, 2020 12:19 AM.
Broncos vs. Patriots Line
Here are the current line Broncos-Patriots odds. While the odds shown here from DraftKings Sportsbook are not uniform among all Colorado sportsbooks, there are similar prices on other books. With that said, DraftKings is where you can get the best odds on the spread right now:
|Broncos||+10 (-120)||+340||O 45 (-110)|
|Patriots||-10 (-103)||-400||U 45 (-110)|
The Broncos are 10-point underdogs against the Patriots on multiple apps.
Had this game been played in Week 5, the Patriots would have been without the services of quarterback Cam Newton and cornerback Stephon Gilmore. However, with the game now delayed until Week 6, the status of both players is uncertain. The Patriots come into this game off a hard-fought loss to the Chiefs, one in which they dictated gameplay throughout, but Kansas City ran away with it late. Some questionable calls helped.
With the Bills off to a hot start, New England needs this game in order to keep pace in the AFC East, while the Broncos need to spring an upset if they hope to hang around in the AFC playoff picture.
The Broncos looked good in their Week 4 win over the Jets, but then again, it was the Jets. If the Broncos offense can show similar explosiveness in New England this week, there could be legitimate reason for optimism moving toward the midway point of the season. That’s a big if, however, and oddsmakers clearly aren’t sold on the idea of Denver repeating such a performance.
The Broncos are substantial moneyline underdogs to the Patriots in Week 6.
Betting $100 on the Broncos to win would result in a $340 profit if Denver can pull off the upset. Judging by those odds, the Broncos are obviously a long shot to win this game, but there are unexpected upsets in the NFL every week. The Broncos pulling off an upset against the Patriots after a 17-day layoff is hardly expected, but it wouldn’t be completely shocking.
The over-under for the Broncos-Patriots Week 6 matchup is set to 45 points.
This is a low total as far as NFL over-unders go.
Even with Cam Newton expected to play, this one doesn’t figure to be a display of two high-octane offenses.
Despite the Broncos’ explosion during their win over the Jets in Week 4, the group remains among the league’s worst. They’ll face quite a test against a New England unit that kept the explosive Chiefs’ attack in check two weeks ago. The reality is that a Bill Belichick-coached defense going up against an inexperienced quarterback is a nightmare situation, especially when that inexperienced quarterback has a depleted cast of supporting talent.
The Patriots, meanwhile, struggled offensively with Cam Newton sidelined. It looks like he’s going to be ready to play on Sunday, but it’s unclear if he’ll have a rhythm with the rest of the offense after missing so much practice time.
