The Denver Broncos will face the New England Patriots Sunday, January 19th at 3:00PM in the NFL AFC Title game at Sports Authority Field at Mile High and Vegas odds makers opening line lists the Patriots as the +6½(-110) point spreads underdog. It came as a shock to me that the Vegas lines makers have listed the Patriots as such a large underdog, you can expect that line to move to under 3 points before NFL game time this Sunday.
LaGarrette Blount achieved his career best performance versus the Colts with 166 yards and four touchdowns. After dominating the Colts and covering the 7½ point spread without a single touchdown pass from Tom Brady, it's clear, that New England's running game is a force to be taken seriously. Scoring 43 points without a touchdown pass was the third highest in NFL playoff history, the 49ers did it in 1993 scoring 44 points against the Giants and the Chicago Bears also accomplished the task in 1985 against the Patriots in the Super Bowl that year.
In a not so surprising AFC Divisional playoff matchup featuring the Chargers versus the Broncos, Denver eliminated the San Diego Chargers in a 24-17 win, in which Denver failed to cover the 7½ point spread posted by odds makers. Payton Manning used his experience to put the Chargers off balance throughout the NFL picks contest, Manning drew 5 neutral zone infractions with his hard count which was the most infractions drawn by a single team since 2001.
Without a doubt the Patriots versus Broncos AFC Title game matchup will be the most anticipated matchup of the day next week. Who do you think will advance to the Super Bowl and face the winner of the 49ers versus Seahawks NFL picks contest?
