Jets Broncos Betting – Tebow, Broncos Face Tough Challenge Against Jets Thursday Night
There is something happening here. While it may defy all logic and evidence to the contrary, the Denver Broncos have won three of four games with Tim Tebow as their starting quarterback, including consecutive road games against divisional opponents. How they have managed to turn things around is downright stunning, and while it has been incredible to watch, the sports betting show isn’t over as the Broncos get set to host the New York Jets this Thursday at the Mile High.

NFL Betting Lines: New York Jets
While the Broncos have been turning their season around, the Jets had their run halted by the New England Patriots, which came into MetLife Stadium and blew New York away with a 37-16 win. That loss ended a three-game winning streak for the Jets, who look to get back on track on short rest this week.

Whether or not the fact that they are coming off an emotional loss to the Patriots and playing on short rest will have any effect on the Jets’ performance only time will tell, but it certainly won’t be an excuse with the Broncos coming off consecutive road wins over division opponents and also playing on short rest. On the heels of three straight wins, New York was surprisingly inefficient against one of the league’s worst defenses, even with 378 total yards of offense. Quarterback Mark Sanchez threw for 306 yards and a touchdown, but he was also sacked five times and threw two interceptions. Turnovers were key in the Jets’ loss with three for them compared to zero for the Patriots, and they should be able to fix that this week.

The fact that the Broncos are now 4-5 and just one game back of the division-leading Oakland Raiders at this point is an absolute shock, especially considering how poorly this team played at the beginning of the season. While Tebow has been a monster in the running game and a leader in the huddle, he completed just two passes last week against the Chiefs, and will need to be better as a passer this week. Denver runs the ball a ton and that helps allow their defense to rest and always be at its best while eliminating turnovers, two keys that have helped the team on its surprising online wagering run.

The fact that this line is as low as it is at this point in the season is absolutely shocking, but not without reason as Tebow and the Broncos have given us reason to believe they can compete. Denver was blown away in its last home game by the Detroit Lions and should be eager for some redemption, and the team has to be believing with Tebow under center.
