NFL Predictions 2010: Broncos’ Tebow Comes Home: The most popular player in this NFL predictions 2010 week 1 match-up in Jacksonville, Florida may not even dress as the Denver Broncos visit the Jacksonville Jaguars. Las Vegas odds have placed the Jaguars as -3(-110) point NFL predictions favorites as the home team. The Broncos were 4-2 against the NFL spreads (ATS) for the 2009 NFL predictions season as road underdogs while the Jaguars were 2-6 ATS. Jacksonville earned a NFL preedictions win over the Broncos 24-17 in their last meeting in the 2008 NFL predictions season.
All eyes in northern Florida will be on Tim Tebow, who is listed on the Broncos’ depth chart as the third-string quarterback for today's NFL predictions match-up against the Jags. Tebow starred just down the road at the University of Florida but the Broncos will start dependable but unspectacular Kyle Orton at quarterback. Orton threw for 21 TDs but will be without his best receiver Brandon Marshall, who departed for Miami this NFL picks season. The Broncos will need WR Eddie Royal and rookie Demaryius Thomas to make plays in his stead, and they could make a difference against a defense that gave-up 235 yards per game in the air last NFL predictions season. The running game for this week 1 NFL predictions match-up, long a Denver staple, struggled in 2009 under the new Broncos’ regime, but Knowshon Moreno and Coral Buckhalter could find holes against a Jags defense that ranked in the bottom half of the NFL in 2009.
The Jaguars were a disappointment defensively in the 2009 NFL predictions season and the team has made a makeover for 2010. The team added DE Aaron Kampman to provide pass rush, and MLB Kirk Morrison for toughness in the middle. In the secondary, the Jaguars are still extremely vulnerable with Anthony Smith and Tyron Brackenridge at the safety position. CB Rashean Mathis makes big plays and gives them up too.
Bottom line for today's week 1 NFL predictions match-up featuring the Broncos vs the Jaguars, if Orton doesn’t make mistakes, which he rarely does, and Denver establishes a running game, the Broncos can score points and that should be enough to pull an upset NFL predictions victory on the road.
