Betting market: This line has been a roller coaster since opening. At Pinnacle, the Broncos opened as a 2.5-point favorite on Sunday night, only to see the line move to a PK within about 20 minutes.

The line gradually moved back to DEN -2.5 by Monday morning and stayed there until Tuesday evening, at which point a reverse line move on the Cardinals caused a big jump from 2.5 to 1. It sat at 1.5 when this was written.

Two-thirds of bettors like the Broncos, but there’s clearly some love for Josh Rosen and the Cardinals if the number is right (see live betting data here). — Mark Gallant

Trends to Know: Under Vance Joseph, the Broncos are 1-9 straight up and against the spread on the road, but those results don’t do Denver’s struggles justice.

The Broncos have had 54 total drives in the second halves of their 10 road games under Joseph, and only one of those series ended with Denver having the lead (Week 3, 2017 vs. Buffalo). As I’m sure you can guess, Denver ended up losing that game … by double-digits. — Evan Abrams

Home underdogs on a short week — six or fewer days between games — have gone 71-91-6 (44%) ATS since 2003. — John Ewing
