A pair of familiar faces will meet again this Sunday as Tom Brady’s New England Patriots play host to Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. Sure, the two veterans have a rivalry that’s spanned over a decade, but neither have had the impact on the NFL odds they hoped for up to this point in 2012. Weigh in on the Week 5 clash of future Hall of Famers today.

Although neither Manning nor Brady have given NFL oddsmakers any particular reason to place them at the top of the Super Bowl futures, hope is on the way. A big Week 4 showing from Denver’s offense, and an impressive late-game comeback from Brady and the Patriots, have each club riding high on momentum heading into the weekend.
Despite the 2-2, record, football betting experts have given New England 7/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl, while Denver’s mark falls more modestly at 20/1. If either can put forth a strong showing against the other when the two clubs clash, it could bump them up further.
Each of the two quarterbacks through seasons highs of three touchdowns last Sunday, suggesting that after some growing pains early on, they’re ready to reclaim Pro Bowl form. With that in mind, bet on the seven-point spread (favoring NE), sit back and enjoy the show.
