The Pulse: Play of the Week!

Skybook's Pulse Play of the week... funny thing is, I agree with them this week. I haven't bet this game yet, but the Broncos do look good in this spot. I'll let you know if I make this a play. Look for my NFL Week 13 Bets - Early Plays post for all my bets so far this week.

"The Pulse has been licking some wounds lately, ticking down 11 units in the last 3 weeks. But never fear our Loyal Pulse Followers…we are on a real strong play this week and looking to get back some units this week with a best bet special. Our last two 5 star selections won easily and the corporate office has been working overtime to come up with another for week 13 in the NFL.

The Pulse's Record: +16 Units

Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs

The Pulse gives this play a 5-Star Rating
and says: Take Denver at a PK over Kansas City!

Looks too easy doesn’t it? This number is a joke and we need to capitalize on this as we might not see another "steam-play" like this again the rest of the year. Are we to understand that the reason a vastly superior Bronco team is in a “pick-em” situation because they are playing at Arrowhead? When these teams played earlier this year, it was no contest as the Broncos used their dominating running game to get out to an early lead and used their increasingly diverse defense to shut down the supposed vaunted, Chiefs offense. From that game, both teams have gone in opposite directions, although the Chiefs still hold hopes for a play-off game this year. This is the game that shatters KC’s dreams of a post-season bliss.

The Pulse has been down all year on KC. With their injuries, offensive line..their best RB Holmes gone for the year, and now more injuries in the secondary - we see no reason to even think that they have a chance this week. We have seen some nice things with RB Johnson leading the way to some recent victories, but this team just doesn’t match up well with the Broncos. The strengths of the Broncos are in their front 7, and KC does not posses the long ball threat to exploit the only weakness that Denver has on “D”. They will try in vain to run the ball and throw to Gonzales, but the Broncos have seen this song before and know the lines, lyrics, and melodies as if they wrote the song themselves…

Funny thing…they run the same offense to perfection, something KC will know all about by the end of this mismatch.

The Broncos will have their way with the Chiefs as they will move the ball with out much trouble as they did in their first meeting. Although the crowd and maybe some special teams play will keep the Chiefs close, we cannot avoid this special “road value” game as the number should be higher than “pick-em”. If the Cowboys received 2 points at home on Thanksgiving with a better-quality defense to KC’s, then this one looks too easy to pass up.

Grab this game soon, as the number is predicted to go higher as the week progresses. Take the Broncos as they continue their dominance of the Chiefs and secure their position as the 2nd best team in the AFC, maybe in the NFL. The Chiefs, with a tough schedule ahead and injuries to boot, end their post-season aspirations right here in week 13."
