Today’s Broncos vs. Steelers matchup is a fascinating one from a betting market perspective.

As mentioned back on Tuesday, early money was all over Pittsburgh, pushing this spread from an opener of Steelers -6.5 to -7 at many books across the market.

However, with the spread sitting at the key number of 7 — which is the second-most frequent margin of victory since 2003 — big bets starting flowing in on the Broncos.

With the help of our NFL PRO Report, let’s examine how savvy bettors reacted to the early Broncos vs. Steelers line movement.
