If you bet on the Jacksonville Jaguars this weekend, your team could be crushed and you could still win. The Jaguars are 0-5. They play Peyton Manning's undefeated Denver Broncos. The Broncos are 28 point favorites: the biggest point spread in NFL history. The Jaguars could lose by 27 and you'd still win your bet.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

They play Peyton Manning's undefeated Denver Broncos. The Broncos are 28-point favorites, the biggest point spread in NFL history. The Jaguars could lose by 27, you'd still win your bet.

But gamble with care. In their big win against Dallas last weekend, Denver did not cover the spread.

It is MORNING EDITION.
