injury report

The Broncos may not have ex Cowboys pass-rusher Gregory active for his first game as a Bronco, as he is questionable to play with shoulder and knee issues. However, he was a limited participant in practice all week, which could be seen as a positive. Hamler and Turner were also limited entrants throughout the week. Turner is listed as a starter on the offensive line, so he’s certainly someone to watch.

The Seahawks have a couple of big players listed as questionable for Monday night, as rookie Walker tries to return from a hernia procedure and Lewis is still recovering from the leg injury he sustained in preseason. Seattle’s offensive line is a question mark, and gene smith he would be more comfortable with Lewis in the lineup.

line movement

Latest odds:

Denver Broncos -6

The Broncos opened as 3.5-point favorites on May 12. On July 6, the line spiked to DEN -5. On August 21, we saw another big jump to DEN -6. On Monday, September 5, the line rose half a point to DEN -6.5.

The pick: Broncos -6.5. This game was included in my top five picks of the week. Here is my reasoning:

“I’ve thought for years that the Broncos’ roster has been worth competing for. They just haven’t had a good game from the most important position in football since the Peyton Manning days. With the arrival of Russell Wilson, Denver could be a legitimate team.

“I don’t think the Broncos will go out there and win by 30 points on Monday night. Wilson and first-year head coach Nathaniel Hackett probably need more time to understand each other before this offense looks like a well-oiled machine on a consistent basis.” “. but I do think this line is too low. I appreciate Pete Carroll giving the appearance that he’s excited about his roster, but I don’t think anyone else is.”

Over/Under 44

The total opened at 41.5 on May 12. On August 28, it went up to 42. On September 4, it went up again to 43. Last Tuesday, it got another raise to 44.

The choice: under 44 years. You can’t exactly rely on last year’s stats as we have different quarterbacks working different offenses. I expect Wilson and the Broncos to be contenders, but that doesn’t mean they’ll go out and lose 40-plus against Seattle. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers The matchup between the Cowboys was disgusting. Could we see something like this? This is not the best bet on my part, but the tilt is towards the Under.

Passing touchdowns: 1.5 (More than -133, Less than -103)
Passing Yards: 253.5 (More than -117, Less than -117)
Pass attempts: 33.5 (More than -123, Less than -111)
Approving terminations: 22.5 (More than -115, Less than -119)
Longest Pass Completion: 36.5 (More than -157, Less than +114)
Interceptions: 0.5 (Over +123, Under -169)

I would go ahead and hit that Over on touchdown passes. Like I said, I don’t expect a shootout, but two touchdowns is, dare I say, likely. I’d stay away from pass attempts and completions on this one for two reasons: The Broncos are expected to win, and we don’t know exactly what this offense will look like. I’m sure Nathaniel Hackett wants to run through his quarterback, but at the same time Denver has two talented running backs they could use if things get out of hand early. Wilson to throw an interception for more money is tempting, but I won’t play it. He threw six interceptions in 14 games last year.

Geno Smith Accessories

Passing touchdowns: 1.5 (Over +165, Under -234)
Passing Yards: 209.5 (Over -115, Under -119)
Pass attempts: 30.5 (More than -113, Less than -121)
Approving terminations: 18.5 (More than -113, Less than -121)
Longest Pass Completion: 36.5 (More than -111, Less than -123)
Interceptions: 0.5 (More than -179, Less than +129)

I will not touch Smith’s touchdown prop. As for his passing yardage, it’s almost as if Vegas took it from his best game last year, as he threw for 209 yards against the pittsburgh steelmen. I don’t expect Smith to top this number, but if you really want some action in Seattle or if you’re a Seahawks fan, go ahead and put some money into that Over.

These quarterback fixtures, especially with “new” quarterbacks in new systems, seem a bit silly to me to bet on in Week 1. Still, I’ll say I like the Under on Smith’s longest finish at 36.5.

Noah Fant Total receptions: Over 2.5 (-123). This isn’t just a revenge game for Wilson, it’s one for Fant as well. The former Bronco tight end didn’t like his time in Denver too much. He struggled with the offense and how the team used him. He’s a threatening type of guy on the field, but the Broncos’ previous quarterback problems took a toll on him. Fant doesn’t exactly have the QB dream scenario in Seattle, but I like that he catches three passes on Monday night.

Rashad Penny Total rushing + receiving yards: Under 80.5 (-110). This number seems a bit inflated to me. I love Penny, though I question her durability, but all of her big games have come late in the year. It’s a weird trend that I try not to pay too much attention to, but if you think the Broncos win this game, I think it’s a good bet.

melvin gordon Rushing yards: Over 37.5 (-131). I love this number. everyone is excited about Javonte Williams — and for good reason — but Gordon is not chopped liver. He crossed this number in 12 of 16 games last year, and if you think the Broncos are winning, that’s even more reason to bet on this.
