  • Sharp bettors have been all over Thursday Night Football featuring the Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos (8:20 p.m. ET on FOX).
  • Let's examine how the pros are betting this spread and whether the line has moved enough to entice buyback from respected bettors.

The Action Network’s Danny Donahue already covered how sharp money wasted no time jumping on Denver for tonight’s Chiefs vs. Broncos Thursday Night Football matchup.

On the other hand, 79% of bets and 76% of dollars wagered have come in on Kansas City, setting up a classic showdown between professional and recreational bettors.

But remember, it’s not as simple as saying the Broncos are the “sharp side,” and being done with it.


Odds as of Thursday at 10 a.m. ET and via PointsBet, where Action Network users can access an exclusive promotion to get a 200% deposit match (deposit $50, bet with $150).


Wiseguys bet numbers, not teams, and if a line continues to move in the same direction, it’ll ultimately flip the value to the opponent, especially when key numbers come into play, which is exactly the scenario for tonight’s matchup.

Here’s the latest market analysis for Chiefs vs. Broncos, and whether smart money has continued to flow on Denver, or whether wiseguy resistance has finally showed up to buy back Kansas City.

Chiefs vs. Broncos Sharp Report


As Donahue detailed in his early-week breakdown, smart money immediately drove the Broncos down from +5 to +3.5. At the time, four Sports Insights Bet Signals had been triggered on Denver.

That flow of sharp action has continued, as the Broncos have now attracted 12 (!) Bet Signals, marking 12 instances of market-moving money hitting Denver.

In fact, the line has even ticked down to Broncos +3, the most important number in NFL betting.

While there’s still plenty of time for professionals to buy back the Chiefs at -3, there have been no signs of KC money entering the market as of the time of writing.

We’ll be sure to update this post again should smart money move this line off 3 in either direction.
