The Denver Broncos take on the Houston Texans tonight on Monday Night Football. According to OddsShark, the Broncos enter tonight’s game as 7.5 point favorites over the Texans.
The over-under is set at 40.5 points. The OddsShark computer likes Denver’s chances of handling the Texans. The computer projects a 28.2-12.4 Broncos victory. It is taking the Broncos to cover the spread and the over on the point total.
Denver has gone 4-2 against the spread this season while the Texans have gone 3-2-1 on the year.
As the over-under indicates, neither team has had a prolific offense to start the season. The Broncos defense has extra motivation with Brock Osweiler leaving Denver for Houston over the offseason.
Osweiler has struggled for much of the season, and we think he could have his worst game yet against one of the best defenses in the league. Heavy likes the Broncos offense to do enough to win the game while the Denver defense makes it a long night for Osweiler and the Texans.
Heavy’s Pick: Broncos 24 Texans 10. Broncos -7.5. Under on the Point Total.
