I’m confused how the Denver Broncos are favored on the road. Yes, the Broncos are the better team on paper, but that’s been the case in a lot of their games, and they’re still losing 70 percent of the time. The Carolina Panthers continue to compete, and they’ve honestly shown far more heart this season than the Broncos. The Broncos have the worst scoring offense in the league and have topped 21 points just once this season. No, thanks. Give me the Panthers and the points.
