The AFC championship game is looming. And the bookies apparently will be rooting hard for the Broncos.
As explained by David Purdum of ESPN.com, gamblers are going heavy with wagers on the Patriots, with the line primarily at New England giving Denver three points.
The question has become whether to move the line to 3.5 points. The MGM tried that on Thursday, and the pendulum went the other way, balancing out the action. The Wynn did the same thing, but a huge, immediate push for the Broncos made that short-lived.
The surge for the Patriots isn’t surprising; many believe New England will blow out Denver. Vegas will be hoping that Peyton Manning and company can keep it to a field goal or less.
