Denver at Arizona

1.5 units on Denver +4 (-110) (risk 1.5 to return 2.86) RESULT: LOSS
Trevor Siemian was named Denver's starting quarterback after the Broncos' 17-9 win over Los Angeles when he completed 10-of-17 passes for 122 yards with a touchdown. Rookie Paxton Lynch took over in the second half and was 6-of-13 for 57 yards. With Mark Sanchez seemingly the odd man out, Siemian and mostly Lynch should get more playing time in this game which bodes well for the Broncos, who are playing the 0-3 Arizona Cardinals. Gary Kubiak is 24-15 straight-up and 24-13-2 ATS in preseason while Bruce Arians' exhibition record has dropped to 6-9 straight-up and 7-7-1 ATS. The Cardinals lost 34-24 at Houston as Carson Palmer was five-of-nine for 64 yards with two interceptions followed by Drew Stanton, who was 7-of-15 for 70 yards and Matt Barkley, who completed 12-of-18 for 162 yards but with two picks. The Texans returned four interceptions for 103 yards last week. The points loom large in this one, so play the Broncos.
