TOM STRYKER’S FREE FOOTBALL SELECTION FRIDAY, AUGUST 11TH
#117 DENVER (-5′) over Arizona at 10 PM EST
A pair of new head coaches will be on display when the Broncos and Cardinals tangle in the desert on Friday night. Sean Payton will storm the sidelines for Denver, and he’ll match wits against Jonathan Gannon of Arizona. Payton is determined to change the culture for the Orange Crush, and he will set the tone matched up against a Redbirds bunch that is still finding their way under the leadership of first-year skipper Gannon.
Historically speaking, the Broncos have played well in their first road game posting a proud 26-11-2 ATS record in their last 39 tries. If this is Denver’s first preseason battle, this trend improves to a phenomenal 19-2-1 ATS. Also, in the role of a favorite, the Orange Crush hold a profitable 11-2 SU and 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 games. On the other side of the field, Arizona has struggled as an exhibition host inking a weak 11-19 SU and 11-18-1 ATS mark.
The Cardinals will have Clayton Tune, David Blough and Jeff Driskel battling in this game for the No. 3 slot at quarterback behind Colt McCoy and Kyler Murray. That won’t be enough facing a Broncos bunch that will have to tangle with Russell Wilson for 15-18 snaps and reserves Jarrett Stidham (from Las Vegas) and Ben DiNucci (XFL). Take Denver. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
