Denver set a single-game scoring record in picking up a 52-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles as 10.5-point home favorites last week, while going OVER the betting total for the fourth time in as many games this season. The Broncos are on a franchise-record 15-game regular-season win streak, while they enter this round of action as one of five undefeated teams in the league. Offensively, the team’s 179 points scored this season represents the second-highest total in NFL history through four games. Denver is 11-1 SU and 10-1-1 ATS as favorites of 3.5 to 9.5 points since 2011.
The Broncos are being led offensively by the play of quarterback Peyton Manning, who leads the league in every major passing category, which includes throwing for 16 touchdowns. Denver has won seven consecutive regular-season road games dating back to last season—tying for the longest such streak in team history. It’s important to point out that the team paces all teams in outscoring opponents by 62 points in the second half in 2013.
Dallas has alternated wins and losses in its first four games, as it comes off a 30-21 defeat to the San Diego Chargers as one-point road favorites last week, while going OVER the betting total of 47. The Cowboys were out-gained by a sizable 189-yard margin in that affair, which is important to consider when making your NFL betting picks. Defensively, the team ranks 27th in the league in allowing 304.5 passing yards per game, which spells trouble going against one of the best quarterbacks in the league. Dallas is 3-10 SU and 7-6 ATS as underdogs the last two-plus seasons.
The Cowboys are certainly capable of pulling off an upset in this spot at AT&T Stadium, especially if Tony Romo is able to match Manning’s production. He has tallied eight touchdowns and thrown just one interception, while ranking fourth with a 105.0 passer rating. Dallas has dropped four consecutive games in this non-conference matchup, including a 17-10 defeat in 2009.
Sports bettors will likely play the total in this affair, as the OVER is 9-3 in the Broncos’ last 12 road games.
