Denver at Tampa Bay
Sunday 10/03 04:15 PM Eastern
2 units on Tampa Bay +3 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: PUSH
You know I'm not sold on the Broncos. If not for a few incredibly timed mis-haps, San Diego would have covered last week instead of pushing. Today Tampa should cover. As is the case with a few other teams this week, Tampa is desperate for a win. Playing at home I think they'll get it or at least keep the contest close. It seems clear that the Broncos will miss Clinton Portis afterall. Quentin Griffen gave Broncos fans hope when he rushed for 156 yards in the first game but that was against Kansas City's defense - nuff said. Since then he's been a bust and last week rushed for 37 yards and coughed up the ball for the third straight week. Denver is 0-6 ATS following a home division-game win. I think Tampa steps it up in this one and keeps it close. One unit on Tampa +3.
