Here’s a stat that you would expect Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning to correct sooner or later. The Broncos have covered just 37% of their home games dating back to 2006. Of course to improve that percentage they’ll have to throttle the Oakland Raiders in the Monday nighter. The Broncs are 141/2 point picks, one of a handful of lopsided spreads in Week 3 ... It’s pretty much take your risk backing the Dallas Cowboys any week they play with inflated lines thanks to their status as “America’s Team” and the trials and tribulations of quarterback Tony Romo. But the ’Boys are particularly vulnerable at home where they have covered four of their past 20 (or just 20%) at home. The Cowboys are the 31/2-point choice over St. Louis ... What does a pair of rookie quarterbacks each making their third career start get you? How about the lowest over-under total of the week (381/2) for the Bills and Jets at MetLife Stadium. The game’s got 17-10 written all over it, doesn’t it?
