After coming out with a great script and amassing a 21-3 lead, Denver came apart and lost as a home favorite for the second consecutive week.
Now they travel to face Miami's No. 1 total offense, No. 1 passing offense, and No. 3 scoring offense. Yet there has been little to no movement in the line? Hmmmm.
Denver's offense does look improved in the first two games with Sean Payton and Miami ranks 28th against the run so expect the Broncos to run the ball more heavily to keep the Dolphins out of rhythm.
NFL Game 3 underdogs coming off a pair of straight-up favorite losses are 16-2-1 ATS since 2003,
Bet: Denver +6.5 (to +6)
Despite being down several starters, Baltimore went to Cincinnati and won last week. Now the Ravens find themselves in an AFC North divisional sandwich with trips to Cleveland and Pittsburgh on deck for the next two weeks.
It will be Gardner Minshew going at QB for the Colts with rookie Anthony Richardson having to miss with a concussion.
The Ravens are still down seven starters (C Tyler Linderbaum, LT Ronnie Stanley, WR Odell Beckham Jr., RB JK Dobbins - IR, CB Marlon Humphrey, S Marcus Williams, and DE Jayson Oweh) and this could be the game where it shows.
Baltimore is only 2-7 ATS in its last nine as a home favorite.
Bet: Colts +8 (to +7.5)
