Denver Broncos

NFL Team Denver BroncosThe Denver Broncos have been on a remarkable run, triumphing over formidable teams such as the Packers, Chiefs, Bills, Vikings, and Browns. Quarterback Russell Wilson, with a 68.3% completion rate, has thrown for 2,199 yards, 20 touchdowns, and only 4 interceptions. Wide receivers Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy have been pivotal, combining for 1,000 receiving yards and 9 touchdowns, while Samaje Perine adds depth with 33 receptions. Denver’s running game, led by Javonte Williams with 538 yards on 140 carries, averages 115.5 yards per game. The Broncos’ defense, allowing an average of 25.5 points and 388.2 yards per game, is anchored by Alex Singleton’s 110 tackles and supported by Nik Bonitto’s 7 sacks and Justin Simmons’ 3 interceptions. Despite their recent success, the Broncos have struggled in road games preceding divisional matchups but have a strong record of covering the spread in Week 13 games.


Houston Texans

NFL Team Houston TexansThe Houston Texans, coming off a loss to the Jaguars, are looking to regain their momentum after a 3-game winning streak was halted. Quarterback C.J. Stroud, completing 63.7% of his passes, has accumulated 3,266 yards, 19 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions. The receiving duo of Nico Collins and Tank Dell has combined for 1,509 yards and 12 touchdowns, with Dalton Schultz contributing 40 receptions. Houston’s running game, led by Devin Singletary with 489 yards and 2 touchdowns, averages 98.7 yards per game. Defensively, the Texans allow 21.1 points and 347.6 yards per game, with Blake Cashman leading the team in tackles, Jonathan Greenard in sacks, and Steven Nelson in interceptions. The Texans have faced challenges as favorites following divisional games and have struggled to cover the spread in Sunday games as favorites.



Despite the Texans’ promising performance and C.J. Stroud’s emergence as a star, the team’s youth and inconsistency in finishing games raise concerns. Houston’s defense and running game have shown vulnerabilities, which the Broncos could exploit. Denver’s 5-game winning streak demonstrates their potential, making them a formidable opponent. Expect the Broncos to not only compete fiercely but also stand a strong chance of winning outright. Bettors should consider taking the underdog Broncos in BUSR’s NFL Odds
