The 2016 NFL schedule is almost at the halfway mark and the final week 7 Monday Night Football picks matchup features the Houston Texans vs Denver Broncos. According to the Las Vegas odds for this MNF picks contest, the Denver Broncos are a heavy point spreads favorite. A look at the line, Las Vegas odds makers show the Broncos as a heavy -360 moneyline and -8(-110) point spread betting favorite. The total for this week 7 Monday Night Football picks contest is set to 40½( ov-105) and the current betting trends show the public taking the Over by 54%.
While my eye is on the Denver Broncos for my free Monday Night Football pick, I have to mention an important factor assisting with the decision for this MNF free pick. The Denver Broncos have not lost three straight since 2011 and are coming off back to back losses to the Atlanta Falcons and San Diego Chargers. While I believe a moneyline wager on the Broncos is a solid MNF pick, for value, making a bet on which team will cover the spread is the more important question.
"The last two games for us looked a lot alike unfortunately, very slow starting football games. We corrected ourselves. Defensively played well in the second half. Offensively we've been really struggling up front. We've got to play better." " stated Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak.
The Houston Texans are getting just 44% of the point spreads wagers, even with a +8(-110) point spread posted by odds makers. Houston's QB Brock Osweiler was picked off once, but threw for 269 yards and two scores last Sunday in their matchup versus the Colts. Osweiler, who is now 9-4 in 13 career starts, has at least one interception in seven straight games (dating to Week 17 last season), which is the longest active streak in the league.
While Denver is more likely to move the ball in the air than on the ground, averaging just 98.5 yards per game, I expect Denver to attempt to establish a run game versus Houston since they allow an average of 126.3 rushing yards per game.
I'm going to go far out on the limb tonight and take the Denver Broncos to cover the point spread.
