With the Joe Flacco addition not paying dividends right now, the Denver Broncos are already semi-desperate heading into Week 3. The polar-opposite is true for a Green Bay Packers team that has clearly made some improvements on the defensive side of the ball if the early going is any real indication. Now, with the Broncos desperate for their first win and the Packers looking to stay unbeaten, let’s find out where the best value lies in this contest.

Why Bet On Denver at +8?
The best reason to back the Broncos is because they’re going to be completely and utterly desperate in this contest, plus they’re getting just over seven points as road dogs.
Unfortunately, desperation might not be enough, seeing as how the Broncos are averaging a pitiful 15.0 points per game following their crushing, last second, 16-14 Week 2 loss to Chicago.
Veteran quarterback Joe Flacco passed for 292 yards, with one touchdown and one interception but he was sacked twice and Denver committed 10 turnovers in the loss.

Why Bet On Green Bay at -8?
There are several good reasons to back the Packers in Week 3. First, Aaron Rodgers and company are playing at home in this affair. More importantly, Green Bay has played some outstanding defense in limiting division rival Chicago to just three points in their opener before shutting down Kirk Cousins and the rival Minnesota Vikings in their hard-fought 21-16 win last weekend. Rodgers passed for 209 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions while running back Aaron Jones had a big game by rushing for 116 yards and one score.

Expert Analysis and Prediction for Broncos vs Packers
If I’ve said it once this past offseason, I’ve said it a million times. The Broncos blew it by signing the mediocre Joe Flacco to address their now, perennially woeful situation at quarterback.
While the Broncos still have a pretty solid defense, they just can’t score enough to get victories and it’s sure not happening in this one against a Green Bay gteam that has looked very good on the defensive side of the ball through two games.
The home team in this series is 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Broncos are an awful 5-14 ATS in their last 19 road games, 1-4-1 ATS in their last six games in the month of September and 1-5 ATS in their last six overall.
I like Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers get the win and ATS cover to improve on their 4-1 ATS mark in their last five games in the month of September.
Pick: Green Bay -7.5
