Small win for books as Broncos fail to cover spread

The Denver Broncos have been the talk of the NFL since Peyton Manning and Co. crushed the Baltimore Ravens 49-27 in the opening game of the season.

This past week was no different.

The Broncos opened as much-publicized 28-point favorites for their Week 6 tilt versus the awful Jacksonville Jaguars with the number closing at -26.5.

Denver won the game straight up 35-19 but failed to cover that colossal spread as the offensively-inept Jaguars managed to keep the game reasonably close.

"It was a small win for the shop," Mike Perry, an oddsmaker with Sportsbook.com told Covers. "Sixty percent of the money was on the Broncos."

Nevermind the books, sharps made a killing on this game...in the history of NFL spreads, 20+ points is insta-fade for the favorite....only the '76 Steelers covered 20+ points vs the Bucs, at -27. Honorable mention to the 2001 Rams covering against the lowly Panthers, but that was Rams -19.5. Seahawks a few weeks back was also -19.5 vs the Jags, which Seattle covered. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/nfl/photos/1310/biggest-point-spreads-in-nfl-history/
