NFL Odds: Peyton Manning Front and Center as Broncos Face Colts in Divisional Round

The Denver Broncos have been an offensive juggernaut for as long as they’ve had Peyton Manning under center, but they still haven’t gotten a Super Bowl title. This Sunday, the squad will get a chance to prove that they’re more than regular season wonders as they go up against the Indianapolis Colts. The sportsbook lists Denver as the 7-point favorite against Manning’s former team. The total is 54 as we go to press.

While Manning has donned the orange for three years now, fans will always think about his 14 year-stint with the Colts. That, and the symbolic rivalry between himself and Andrew Luck, will make the clash one of the most anticipated of the divisional round weekend.

The Broncos are 6/1 to win the Super Bowl, and Indianapolis is 16/1. The Colts’ lofty potential payout is as intriguing as their young roster.

Though the Broncos finished with a 12-4 record, they were 8-8 ATS this season. The much-lauded team has struggled to meet expectations. The Colts, on the other hand, were 11-5 on the year and 10-5-1 ATS, suggesting they could be ready for whatever gets thrown at them. Game time is Sunday at 4:40 PM ET.
