You should bet against the Broncos

Vegas isn't high on Peyton Manning's play this season, and the Broncos are three-point underdogs on the road in Kansas City.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

UNDERDOGS: Peyton Manning and the Broncos are on a 12-0 run against division opponents on the road, one win away from an NFL record. However, they're 3-point underdogs to the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on Thursday night, and the Chiefs happen to be 5-1 in their last six games at home.

EXTRA MOTIVATION: The Broncos defense may not want to hear the Chiefs' new touchdown song.
