REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

Based on the money lines, the Broncos had an expected win percentage of 50% after 2 games. At 0-2, they are short of expectations in this early part of the season. If you bet on them to win every game you would be down 200 units. They are 1-1 against the spread for a -10 loss. Their under-over record is 2-0. Oddsmakers expected them to win 7.3 based on their money line game odds. Their 6-10 record last season was very disappointing. They were not good against the spread going 6-9-1 (-390 loss). More of their games came in under (13) than went over (3). In their next game vs the Packers they are only winning 29% of the simulations. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).
