Patriots Vs. Broncos Odds Update: New England Favored By Nine Points On Game Day

The Denver Broncos are having a tough time convincing the odds makers that they have a good chance at making Sunday's game against the New England Patriots a competitive one. While the line opened at 4.5 points in favor of the Patriots, it has reached nine points on Sunday morning, according to Odds Shark. There haven't been any major injuries to the Broncos this week that would adversely change the pregame outlook, but safety Brian Dawkins and cornerback Andre Goodman are both questionable for the game. Tom Brady could exploit the situation if Chris Harris and Rahim Moore are sharing the secondary (safety David Bruton is also questionable for the game, leaving Rafael Bush the only backup beside Moore. That is, if Bush is active for the game).

The over/under for the game is still at 47 points and that will largely depend on how well Tim Tebow can direct the Broncos' offense. If Tebow can consistently put points on the board and the Broncos defense is able to bend and not break against Tom Brady, Wes Welker and Rob Gronkowski.
