With AFC West supremacy in sight, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos will play host to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday. A strong showing against a potential NFC-playoff club could be just what the Broncos need in order to live up to their rising NFL odds as one of the toughest teams to beat in football.
The Broncos, favored on the individual NFL moneyline with a seven-point spread, have more than simple home-field advantage heading into the Week 13 tilt. With legendary quarterback Manning back at apparent full health after a year off in Indianapolis, Denver has wasted no time putting forth a sturdy enough portfolio to convince bettors that they’re worthy of NFL futures success.
Heading into the final stretch of the regular season, the Bronco’s have 11/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl.
Denver’s opponent this weekend, however, is no push over – although at times slightly forgettable. Still, despite only 90/1 odds on that Super Bowl future list, the Buccaneers are a plus-.500 team in a solid position to sneak into the NFC postseason.
Weigh in on the clash of postseason candidates as each looks to prove that they’re not just filler in a deep potential playoff pool.
