NFL 2016 Week 1 Thursday Night Game Picks & Analysis – FootballThursday, September 8, 2016 12:00
Breaking down the Super Bowl rematch between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos.
NFL Week 1 Thursday Night
CAROLINA PANTHERS @ DENVER BRONCOS +3
UPSET SPCIAL (0 – 0)
Vegas is making the Denver Broncos a home underdog coming off a Super Bowl defensive domination of visiting Carolina.
No Peyton Manning, not even Brock Osweiler, I get that, but the Broncs can still run the ball, their receivers have the advantage over the Josh Norman-less Panthers defense and Von Miller is rich, happy and still leads what should be a great defense.
Here’s some facts to ponder before you bet:
- In Weeks 1-4, during the Pat Bowlen era, Denver is 24 – 4 in home openers…
- Their .857 winning percentage leads the NFL.
- Their .690 percentage in September games since 1996 also sets the league standard…
- Since 1990, the Broncos are percentage points behind Green Bay and the Steelers in home field success.
The Broncos, as we previously discussed have the clearest –documented and undeniable—home field advantage in the NFL
I love this pick!
