**Odds as of 11/27**
Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Saints have won seven consecutive games heading into Sunday’s afternoon tilt with the Broncos. Even without Drew Brees under center, New Orleans crushed Atlanta last week 24-9. QB Taysom Hill is extremely athletic, and keeps defenses guessing whether he’ll be passing or running. Hill should have plenty of success against the Broncos’ 20th-ranked defense. The Saints possess an excellent offensive line, a Pro Bowl RB, and perhaps the best WR in the league. Denver managed a 20-13 upset victory last week vs Miami, but have been blown out twice at home (TB, KC). New Orleans brings a similar level of dominance to Empower Field at Mile High. Saints 34, Broncos 22
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
No Drew Brees? No problem, Taysom Hill is here. The backup quarterback played well in Week 11 against the Atlanta Falcons but now he’s going to face a much tougher defense.
With Hill under center, the New Orleans Saints throw less and run more. Hill, Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray are the key to that plan.
The Saints average 29.5 points per game (fifth best in the league) and the total has gone under in four of New Orleans’ last five games played in November.
The Denver Broncos are trusting second year quarterback Drew Lock, but he needs to play a lot better if he wants to be “the guy”.
Thankfully for Denver, the Broncos have two solid running backs in Melvin Gordon and Philip Lindsay and also a solid defense led by Bradley Chubb.
The Broncos average 20.6 points per game (sixth worst in the league) and the total has gone under in 14 of their last 20 games at home.
