The Denver Broncos are in serious trouble. Can they mastermind the upset in week 15? We weigh in on this matchup and serve up choice SU, ATS and Total Picks.

New England Patriots vs Denver Broncos

Point Spread Value

The New England Patriots continue to mow down the opposition with the kind of assuredness that only comes with experience and proven championship credentials. On Monday Night Football at the Foxboro they edged the Ravens 30-24 to clinch a fourth straight win and eleventh overall on the season. To date, they sport a 10-3-0 ATS record that includes a 9.2 winning margin on average and +3.3 differential versus the spread. It's the best ATS record of any team in the league; it also includes a very solid 5-1-0 ATS record on the road with and 11.2 winning margin on average and a +5.7 differential versus the spread. Hard to argue those numbers even in the face of a date with the defending Super Bowl champions at Sports Authority, where Brady has struggled in season's past. Why this might be finally his day is twofold: no Peyton Manning and the Broncos are in trouble.

The Survivor

As mentioned above, the Broncos are in a spot of trouble. Week 14 saw the defending champions fall to the Tennessee Titans 13-10 on the road. It marked their fifth loss of the season and they fall into third place in the AFC West behind an 8-5-0 SU and ATS record. The Chiefs and Raiders are two wins ahead of the Broncos, which means the defending champions just might be in danger of missing the playoffs! This is a bit of a must-win game for the Broncos and there's no doubt the defense will be up to the task. But can the offense with an unheralded quarterback keep pace with the certified future Hall of Famer? It would take a bold bettor to shade the Broncos on week 15 NFL picks to win straight up.

Game Total

The Patriots are synonymous with the offensive grit and wit of Tom Brady but their 2016-2017 campaign is underscored by solid defending mainly. As such, they are 5-8-0 in O/U betting. In fact, they've cashed on the UNDER more than the Broncos have and we know what their defense is like. The Broncos are 6-7-0 in O/U betting.
