Broncos open Week 7 as big favorites over Texans

The Denver Broncos are expected to take home the victory in the first-ever Brock Bowl.

According to sports gambling website Odds Shark, the Broncos have opened Week 7 as 6.5-point favorites over the Houston Texans, whom they'll host on Monday Night Football.

This will be Denver's inaugral game against former quarterback Brock Osweiler, who bolted for the Texans in free agency, signing a $72 million contract.

Amid some criticism, Osweiler "led" Houston (4-2 overall; 3-2-1 against the spread) to a comeback win over the Colts in Week 6, giving them momentum entering the Mile High City.

The Broncos (4-2; 4-2), meanwhile, are reeling from Thursday's loss to the Chargers, their second defeat in five days. They've vowed to get back on track against Osweiler and Co, and they'll need to with the crux of their schedule looming.

It should be a Monday night party, indeed.

MNF will kick off from Sports Authority Field at 6:30 p.m. MT.
