NFL odds and lines 2013, Broncos vs. Cowboys: Denver favored big

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

The Broncos will probably attempt to score 100 points against Dallas, but they'll need to win by at least nine to cover the spread.

The Denver Broncos are rolling right along. Their next game will take place against the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL's largest venue at AT&T Stadium on Sunday.

Nobody on the planet is playing better than Peyton Manning. The quarterback's play is likely why Denver is favored by 8.5 points despite being on the road against a division leader, according to Oddsshark.com.

Manning is off to a start that no quarterback has ever been, throwing 16 touchdown passes against zero interceptions through the first four games. As a result, the Broncos have racked up an incredible 49, 41, 37 and 52 points in each of their first four contests.

On the other side, Tony Romo and his squad are looking to bounce back from a tough loss against the San Diego Chargers. Dallas had a 21-10 lead, but allowed 20 unanswered points in a mini-meltdown. The Cowboys play in the NFC East, however, so they still lead the division with an underwhelming 2-2 record.
