Texans Broncos Betting Tips – Denver Cannot Stop Houston Running Game
Houston Texans @ Denver Broncos – Sunday September 23, 2012 4:25PM EST
The Denver Broncos made a series of changes in the off-season that the team hopes will result in wins on the field. The NFL betting experts were not surprised when the Broncos cut all ties with quarterback Tim Tebow after bringing in Peyton Manning. But it was a bit concerning when the Broncos settled on former Bears backup quarterback Caleb Hanie to be Manning’s backup. If something happens to Manning, the Broncos could be in trouble. The Broncos also brought it corner back Tracy Porter to help compliment all-pro cornerback Champ Bailey. While the moves were impressive, it is taking time for the team to gel.
The Houston Texans have been working on its roster for years, and the sports betting experts finally feel like Houston has built a legitimate Super Bowl contender. The only thing that kept the Texans out of the Super Bowl last year was costly injuries to key players late in the season. If the Texans can stay healthy in 2012, then there are many people who feel that Houston will be the team to beat in the AFC.
The Broncos look great on paper but, as the old saying goes, the game is played on the field. The online sportsbooks completely understand why the Broncos made the move for Manning, they are just not sure if the Broncos have the tools it needs around Manning to succeed. Most of the offense, including much of the offensive line, is new and key parts of the Denver defense are also new. This team is going to need time to get itself together and build itself into winner.
The Houston Texans have one of the best running games in football with running backs Arian Foster and Ben Tate, and the Texans have one of the best passing games in football with quarterback Matt Schaub and wide receiver Andre Johnson. The Texans lost key linebacker Mario Williams to free agency and still have the best defense in the AFC. This is a team with depth and a team that is ready to win.
The Bottom Line
The Denver Broncos have the pieces it needs to be a winner, now it just needs the time to mold those pieces into a cohesive unit. The Texans have been molding its team for years and is ready to take on any team in the NFL.Pick: Houston Texans
