The Broncos 2020 season finally begins tonight as Denver welcomes in Tennessee to Empower Field in the second game of ESPN’s Monday Night Football doubleheader with kickoff scheduled for 8:20 p.m.
At DraftKings Sportsbook Denver is listed at +3, in what was a pick ’em game before news of Von Miller’s injury broke. For whatever it’s worth the Broncos are 18-2 in their past 20 home openers, but all those games had fans in the stands and came after a full-slate of preseason games.
The odds makers also are expecting a low-scoring game with the over/under listed at 41. Looking at the first 14 games of the NFL season the overs have hit nine times, it’s obviously a small sample size, but it just feels like 41 is a little too low, even in what could be a defensive contest.
Props worth considering
Over at FanDuel Sportsbook you’re able to place single-game parlays on the Broncos-Titans game, while some sportsbooks don’t allow similar wagers to be combined. Here’s a look at a couple options I think are worth the gamble tonight.
A $10 parlay on Titans running back Derrick Henry and Broncos running back Philip Lindsay along with receiver Jerry Jeudy to all score touchdowns in the game will win you $304. Lindsay and Jeudy are longer shots to get in the end zone, but at odds of +3045 it’s a risk worth taking.
The other bet I really like at FanDuel simply because of the odds is picking Tennessee to win, the Broncos to cover and the over to hit. At odds of +4228 a $10 bet will win you $422. For what it’s worth all it would take is a final score in the low 20s for both teams with the Titans winning by one or two points.
There’s a slew of special offers out there on tonight’s game. We’ve already mentioned FanDuel’s single-game parlays bets that are available, here’s a couple more that are worth a look.
DraftKings is offering First TD Insurance, meaning if you bet on who will score the game’s first touchdown you’ll get your money back as long as your pick scores a TD at any point in the game. Your money will be refunded in the form of a free bet up to $20.
If you want to take a Bronco here I would suggest Lindsay, Jeudy or tight end Noah Fant. All three are +1200, so it’s a great payoff if they score first, but you also have a decent chance to get your money back with a TD later in the game.
The final two offers are for new customers at BetMGM and William Hill sportsbooks.
At BetMGM all you need to do is signup, make a deposit and place a moneyline bet on the Broncos-Titans game, if either team scores a TD you’ll receive $100 in free bets.
At William Hill just sign up, make a deposit and place at least a $5 moneyline or point spread bet on the game. If the team you picked wins or loses by less than 50 points you’ll win a $101 free bet.
