NFL Betting Odds - Denver Broncos vs. Tennessee Titans (-6 ½)

NFL Game Preview for October 3, 2010: Denver Broncos @ Tennessee Titans The online sports betting experts are having a difficult time with the Tennessee Titans this season. The Titans played a sloppy game in week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and lost 19-11. Then the Titans came back in week three and beat the New York Giants 29-10. The Giants are struggling a bit, but New York still has a powerful defense that Tennessee quarterback Vince Young ripped apart.

The Broncos are not making the NFL football betting any easier. In week two the Broncos beat a surprisingly good Seattle Seahawks football team 31-14. The Seahawks have been playing tight defense all season, but Denver quarterback Kyle Orton and the Broncos offense was able to get around the Seattle defense without much problem. However the Broncos are 1-2 thanks to a loss to two AFC South teams in the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Indianapolis Colts. Even though the losses cannot be laid completely on Orton’s shoulders, there is now questions as to how long it will be before Denver head coach Josh McDaniels pulls Orton in lieu of Tim Tebow.

The Titans continue to be football betting favorites because of the way they came back after an embarrassing week two loss at home against the Steelers to go on the road and methodically beat the New York Giants. Quarterback Vince Young and the Titans showed poise, maturity and leadership when he pulled himself up after that loss and led his team to victory.

The Broncos are looking like a desperate football team. A desperate football team playing a composed football team is usually a match that leans towards the composed team. With Tennessee head coach Jeff Fisher keeping his team focused on winning, and with the offense that the Titans have, it is no wonder why Tennessee was able to bounce back against a good defense like the one in New York.

Now come s the human part of football. Just four days before kicking off against Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts, the Denver Broncos were rocked by the suicide death of young wide receiver Kenny McKinley. By all accounts, McKinley was very popular with his teammates and the loss for the team is significant. Players say that kind of thing can be pushed to the back of your mind when you take the field, but it is still there when there are breaks in the action.

The Broncos will be carrying heavy hearts all season long. McKinley’s locker will be left as it was and they will be setting up his locker at road games. As much as that helps memorialize a fallen friend, it acts as a distraction to the rest of the team. The death of McKinley may be a rallying point at some point in the next couple of weeks, but for the immediate future the team is still grieving.

The Titans are a class act, just like the Indianapolis Colts. They will go out to win the game, but they will not try to embarrass a grieving football team. Unfortunately, tragedy enters into the NFL picks decisions betters make each and every week. The Broncos were not able to play against the Colts and they will not be able to focus against the Titans.

Pick: Tennessee Titans 34-17
