Why Bet on the Denver Broncos?
After ending the 2020 season with disappointing numbers, the Broncos are ready to improve their 5-11 record, finishing last in the AFC West. It’s been a while since we’ve seen Denver in the postseason. Vic Fangio continues his quest to bring the team back to its former glory.
Their previous game showed us a promising Broncos squad when they demolished the Vikings 33-6. They went all out after letting Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater run the offense. Lock ended his night with 151 passing yards on 5 of 7, while Bridgewater had 74 passing yards and a touchdown on 7 of 8 completions.
Meanwhile, credit also goes to KJ Hamler who led his team with 105 receiving yards and a touchdown on just two catches. The Broncos look on pace to start the regular season, regardless if it’s going to be Lock or Bridgewater who’ll take snaps under center. We look forward to what they can bring against a Seattle team trying to recover from a loss.
Why Bet on the Seattle Seahawks?
Over at Seattle’s side, they ended their previous campaign with a 12-4 overall record and took the NFC West crown in the process. Although they weren’t able to make a deep postseason run when they lost to the Los Angeles Rams in the Wild Card round, they remain a formidable bunch. Veteran head coach Pete Carroll is expected to steer the team into another solid regular season.
Russell Wilson stays at the heart of the offense. However, he is not expected to suit up this weekend. Instead, the trio of Alex McGough, Sean Mannion, and Geno Smith covered the quarterback position. McGough stood out as he went for 54 yards on 6 of 10 with a touchdown to his name. He also pulled off a rush for 25 yards.
Despite getting outplayed by Peterman, Seattle’s defense still held up to their opponents. They recorded four sacks in the game and an interception. Linebacker Ben Burr-Kirven stuck out after 12 successful tackles, while linebacker Cody Barton had two sacks. The duo could help the team to their first preseason victory.

Broncos vs. Seahawks Expert Betting Predictions
We might not see both teams playing much of the first-team players, giving the Broncos good winning chances this time around. Following an opening week victory that showed everyone their better side, the advantage goes to Denver. However, if coach Carroll decides to mix things up and find a better combination of second and third-string players to counter their opponents, covering the spread and a win should remain in the picture. In the end, we are bound to witness exciting and action-packed football in this clash.
