The Denver Broncos and New York Giants will face off on Sunday in Week 2 action. The Broncos are coming off a dominating performance over last year's Super Bowl champions, the Baltimore Ravens, while the Giants are coming off a wildly disappointing loss to the divisional-rival Dallas Cowboys.
Accordingly, the Broncos are favored heading to this matchup. According to OddsShark, the Broncos opened up as 3.5-point favorites and the line has been moving even more in their favor throughout the week. Denver can be had for as high as 5.5-point favorites at some books.
The line would probably be bigger if the game weren't being played in New York. The home-field advantage is generally good for at least three or four points on the betting scale in most cases, so the Broncos are probably heavier favorites than the line suggests.
It should be an interesting matchup either way. The Broncos, with Peyton Manning at the helm, are able to disguise defensive lapses with one of the league's top offenses. The Giants, with Peyton's brother, Eli Manning, made way too many mistakes in their Week 1 game, but clearly have the ability to beat any team in the league.
The over/under for the match is set right around 55 points and the over doesn't seem all too unlikely.
