Jacksonville at Denver: A “Preview”
In the ten times the best team in the league hosted the worst team in the league, the average score was 36-4. In the eight of those games where we have a points spread, the best team was favored by an average of 16.2 points. Let’s walk down memory lane.
Let's see...so, the average spread was 16.2 points, and the average final margin was 32 points, or 1.975 times the spread. If we multiply that by 27.5, we get a 54-point victory for Denver on Sunday.
Actually, that sounds about right, no?
