LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Denver Broncos are the biggest favorite ever in an NFL game, a whopping four-touchdown pick Sunday at home against the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars.
Sports books in and around Las Vegas make Peyton Manning and the Broncos a 28-point favorite over Jacksonville. That’s unheard of in an industry where half-point swings can be huge and most teams are rated within a few points of each other.
But even the big line hasn’t stopped people from betting on Denver.
The Broncos are 5-0, one of three unbeaten teams in the NFL. They have scored the most points in the league, averaging 46 points a game. The Jaguars are 0-5 and have scored the fewest points in the league, averaging 10 points a game.
