4 units on Game Total UNDER 49 -110 (risk 4 to return 4)  RESULT: WIN

It has been a strange and wild ride for the Broncos this season. They opened the year at 3-0 and looked like an offensive power, averaging 38 ppg in the process. Amazingly since then, they haven't even scored 38 once, and have gone just 4-5 in their last nine games. That 38 ppg average has been sliced nearly in half, at 19.8 ppg over their last nine games. What was a good top-scoring offense has turned into one that is below league average now. The Chiefs finally won a game last week, just their second in their last 19 games! Unfortunately it came against the Raiders and anyone who saw Thursday night's Oakland - San Diego game knows how bad the Raiders really are. The Chiefs haven't been able to consistently move the ball on anyone, and have played 12 of their last 18 on the road to the UNDER, including four of six this season. The Broncos are still classified as an OVER team from their start, and continue to be issued inflated totals. Sure, their offense clicked last game as they put up 34 on the Jets, but one game does not a trend make. All three times their total has reached this level of over 48 points since their big start, they have failed to reach it. This one may look high scoring, but looking closer at Denver, and the road saga of the Chiefs, I'm playing this one UNDER.
