NFL betting has the Denver Broncos favored by a field goal at home on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns.
The Broncos are coming off a miracle win last week at home against Cincinnati while the Browns were blown out at home in pro football betting by the Dallas Cowboys.
NFL betting was definitely exciting last week on the Broncos game. Denver got a miracle touchdown with 11 second left to steal a 12-7 win against the Bengals. The Broncos realize they will have to play better than they did a week ago but they have NFL betting history on their side. They haven’t lost to the Browns in almost 19 years. "We certainly didn’t do everything we wanted to do the way we wanted to do it," head coach Josh McDaniels said.
Denver’s offense struggled most of the day against the Bengals and the defense even let the team down as they allowed the Bengals to mount a 91-yard drive that looked like it would be a game winner. "We weren’t on the field enough offensively to prevent that," McDaniels said, "We’ve got to have the ball for more than 26 minutes offensively if we want our defense to hold up as the game goes on. We’ve got to play better complementary football on both sides."
NFL betting stats indicate that Kyle Orton was 17 for 28 for 156 passing yards before the long miracle TD pass to Brandon Stokley. Brandon Marshall looked out of shape and not ready to play as he had four catches for only 27 yards as NFL betting statistics indicated.
Denver was 4-4 at home last season as NFL betting results showed. The Broncos have won eight in a row against Cleveland dating back to a 30-29 home pro football betting loss on Oct. 8, 1990.
The Browns didn’t do very many things right in their 34-20 NFL betting loss to Minnesota last week. Quarterback Brady Quinn didn’t play that well but he had very little help. He was 15 of 28 for 117 yards with an interception before the final TD drive in the NFL betting match. He finished 21 of 35 passes for 205 yards as pro football betting stats show.
NFL betting this week has the Browns at 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog. Denver is not very good in NFL betting in this spot as they are 7-20-1 against the pro football betting number in their last 28 home games. The Broncos are 2-6-1 vs. the NFL betting odds in their last 9 games in September.
