  • Opening moneyline: Broncos -190/Commanders +160
  • Opening total: Over/Under 40.5 points scored
  • Time: 4:25 p.m. ET Sunday (CBS)

UPDATE 7 P.M. ET FRIDAY: Denver has been painted to -3.5 all week at BetMGM, with not so much as a juice adjustment. The Broncos are netting 53% of spread tickets, while 61% of spread money is on the underdog Commanders.

Further, moneyline tickets are 2/1-plus and moneyline cash almost 3/1 on Washington (+150).

BetMGM's total dropped from 40.5 to 38 by Wednesday morning. The number rebounded to 39 Wednesday afternoon, then went to 38.5 this afternoon. Ticket count is 3/1 and money 6/1 on the Under.

UPDATE 11 P.M. ET SUNDAY: The beginning of the Sean Payton era proved no better than what Denver endured last season. The Broncos (0-1 SU and ATS), 3-point home faves, lost to the Raiders 17-16.

Washington (1-0 SU/0-1 ATS) didn't look great against Arizona, but won 20-16 as a 4-point home chalk.

Commanders vs Broncos Pick, Prediction

Action Network NFL betting expert Brandon Anderson offers this prediction:

Both offenses finished bottom five in DVOA, and both defenses were top 10. Denver is low on passing options with Greg Dulcich out and Jerry Jeudy limited, and Sean Payton seems to be slowing things down and running the football to protect Russell Wilson.

Neither team is explosive, and Denver's defense has the talent to shut down Sam Howell. Week 2 unders with a total of 40 and below are 47-19-3 to the under (71%) the last two decades.

Honestly, this game could go under 10. I'd rather set my money on fire than watch or bet on this game.
