NFL Lines – Denver Broncos to buck past the Seattle Seahawks in preseason action
Written by North Shore Sports, INC
Log on to Bookmaker Sportsbook and look for the Denver Broncos to buck past the Seattle Seahawks on the NFL lines. For the largest limits and quickest payouts in the world, bet this game at the world’s top ranked sportsbook.
Something has to give here, as the Broncos (1-1) are 8-4 straight up at home in preseason since 2005 while winning by +7.6 points per game, while the Seahawks (1-1) are 8-3-1 on the NFL lines on the road in preseason over that same span. The Broncos have looked better this year though, so they get the nod Saturday, August 27th at Mile High Stadium in Denver, CO at 9:00 ET.
The Broncos are actually 2-0 on the NFL lines, as they are within 14 seconds of being 2-0 straight up. That was how much time was left when the Dallas Cowboys scored a touchdown against Denver in Week 1, and then converted the two-point conversion to pull out the come-from-behind 24-23 win.
As for the Seahawks, true to their preseason form, they opened up with a road upset of the San Diego Chargers, but they then laid an egg at home vs. a bad Minnesota Vikings team last week, losing 20-7.
Current Line at Bookmaker: Denver (-4), Total 38
The biggest controversy in Denver has been the demotion of Tim Tebow to third string quarterback behind starter Kyle Orton and backup Brady Quinn, but that demotion seems warranted based on how the quarterbacks have played so far. Orton had a great season last year, and he was sharp in a 24-10 win over the Buffalo Bills last week, completing 10-of-13 passes for 135 yards and a touchdown.
Quinn has put together back-to-back fine performances, first passing for 120 yards vs. Dallas in the one-point opening week loss and then passing for 130 more yards on the NFL lines vs. the Bills. Tebow did not impress in Week 1 when he had a chance to showcase his talents, and he was then only on the field long enough to complete one out of two passes last week.
The offense has clicked much better with the current top two quarterbacks in the game, and even the starting Denver defense has been a pleasant surprise, as the Broncos allowed only 10 points over the first three quarters at Dallas and three points over the first three stanzas vs. the Bills.
The Seahawks have a messy quarterback situation with Tarvaris Jackson and Charlie Whitehurst as the top two signal callers. Seattle seems content with having Jackson as the starter, but it was Whitehurst that led the Seahawks to their only scoring drive on the NFL lines vs. the Vikings.
In any event, neither of the Seattle quarterbacks strike fear in opposing defenses, so the Seahawks will be hard-pressed to match their playoff year of 2010.
Last year in preseason Week 3, the Broncos beat the eventual AFC Champion Pittsburgh Steelers rather handily 34-17 here at home, while the Seahawks lost on the road 24-13 in Minnesota. Look for an instant replay for both teams here, resulting in another safe Denver hone win.
