According to the Vegas oddsmakers, Tim Tebow's luck will finally run out Saturday night against the Patriots. Then again, the Broncos also entered their wild-card round matchup with the Steelers as the underdogs.
Despite some more Tebow magic against Pittsburgh, however, the Pats are currently 13 1/2-point favorites for Saturday's divisional round game.
The Patriots' defense has been a question mark all season, and Tebow's accuracy and playmaking ability was top notch last week, but the oddsmakers apparently like Tom Brady's chances of lighting up the scoreboard in chilly Foxboro.
After all, Brady and Co. did do so in the teams' Week 15 matchup in Denver, when the Pats overcame an early nine-point deficit to secure a 41-23 win.
Brady completed 23 of 34 passes in that game for 320 yards and two touchdowns, while tight end Aaron Hernandez put together a career day with nine catches for 129 yards and a score.
Tebow, meanwhile, performed well on the ground, but the Broncos were unable to keep up with the potent New England offense. Saturday's matchup could once again come down to Denver's ability to contain the Patriots' high-flying attack, as it might not have the offensive capability to trade blows with New England in a shootout.
As mentioned, though, Tebow's been counted out many times before, and that seems to be when he plays his best football. So is that 13 1/2-spread too high, too low or is it right where it should be?
