Secondary market Broncos tickets are pricey this week

Guest post by TiqIQ:

The Denver Broncos have just one blemish on their 2014 record and outside of losing to the defending Super Bowl champs in Seattle, have looked as good as advertised. They get their second true test of the year in Week 7, as the San Francisco 49ers migrate over from the NFC West to try to hand Denver loss number two on the year.

It’s a worthy opponent and a hyped battle, easily making it the most expensive game of the week, the most expensive of the season for the Broncos and the most expensive regular season game in Denver on the secondary market since at least 2010. The average price for Broncos vs 49ers tickets is currently $544.96, 66% above the remaining season average for Broncos tickets at home. Even the get-in price is expensive with the cheapest available ticket on the secondary market coming at $213.

The value is there when it comes to a terrific matchup between two conference powerhouses, but will that value equate to a Broncos win in Week 7, is the question. Peyton Manning has looked rather sharp this year regardless of the defense he’s facing, and so far no one has been able to account for all of his potent weapons in the passing game. If there was a weak link going into this matchup, it’s Denver’s ground game, but Ronnie Hillman seems to have resurrected that the past two weeks, especially after topping 100 yards rushing in week six.

San Francisco tends to stop the run well, but an already injury-ravaged Niners unit could be down one more big name, as stud inside linebacker Patrick Willis (toe) may not be available for this one. On top of hurting the run defense, no Willis could hamper the 49ers’ ability to stop athletic tight end Julius Thomas. The Niners had done a good job against opposing tight ends leading into this battle, but without Willis they could have their work cut out for them.

Even worse, a rookie may have to pick up the slack. Wisconsin alum Chris Borland may get called upon to help shore up the run defense, and he could be a player to attack for the Broncos. While Denver has the matchup edge, the 49ers aren’t a cakewalk on the other end. Colin Kaepernick represents a dual threat challenge few teams are well equipped to defend, and a somewhat leaky Broncos defense might fall in line with those that could struggle.

The Broncos are still the favorites at home in this one, but if Kap brings the offense ready for a shootout and can work magic with his legs, Denver may be in for a close contest.

Secondary market Broncos tickets 10% cheaper this week

Guest post by TiqIQ: 

Heading into Week 5 of the NFL season this Sunday, the Denver Broncos will head home to host the Arizona Cardinals at Sports Authority Field. Denver comes off a bye week following a difficult loss to the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks in Week 3. The Broncos schedule won’t get any easier this week with the Cardinals in town, either, as Arizona looks to keep its flawless 3-0 record intact. While the game may give a look into a potential postseason matchup, Broncos tickets will be below average and  serve as the third cheapest for a Broncos home game on the team’s remaining schedule at home, trailing games against the Bills and lowly Raiders later this season.

On the secondary market, the average price for Broncos tickets to this Sunday’s game is $287.47 on the secondary market, 10.3% below the season average of $320.83 at home. The get-in price starts at $112. The Broncos can attribute much of their high season average to an October 19 game against the 49ers at home, however, as that game currently sees a secondary average of $560.77. The Broncos will play their second highest-priced home game just four days later against the Chargers as part of Thursday Night Football. That game owns an average price of $353.18 on the secondary market and get-in price of $126.

While the Broncos have had ample time to recuperate after dropping a close game to the Seahawks on September 21, they’ll need to take a win away from the Cardinals this weekend or risk falling to their worst start to the season in the Peyton Manning era. The Chargers currently control first place honors in the AFC West and another loss could drop the Broncos into early-season obscurity. The success the Chargers have seen has been a large contribution to the increasing ticket prices for their stop in Denver later this month and the October 23 game may serve as an integral matchup between the two battling divisional teams.

There's a high demand for secondary Broncos tickets this month

Guest Post from TiqIQ.com

The Denver Broncos have been nothing but amazing since Peyton Manning arrived three years ago, which naturally has fans believing yet another run at a Super Bowl is in store for them in 2014.

There’s little reason not to think that, either, as the Broncos have put up two straight 13-3 finishes and last year were quite easily the best offense the league has ever seen. More of the same could be coming and Denver fans seem fine with paying to see it happen in 2014.

The journey starts in September, though, and it’s not exactly an easy one. To see how Denver will do in 2014 in their bid to get back to the big game, here’s a breakdown of their September matchups, alongside data provided by Coast to Coast Tickets on Broncos tickets.

Week 2 (Sep. 14th) VS. Kansas City Chiefs | Average Price: $401.64 | Get-in: $115
Denver stays at home in week two, as they take on probably their toughest divisional opponent, the Kansas City Chiefs. KC gave them a fight both times last year and might be on to their ways this year. It’s still in Denver and Manning and co. know they need to start hot with such a tough schedule on the docket. Look for the Broncos to roll past KC in their first meeting.

Week 3 (Sep. 21st) @ Seattle Seahawks | Average Price: $482.49 | Get-in: $147.50
Here’s the rub. While the first two games are tough home games, neither match the intensity of a rematch of last year’s Super Bowl. It’s a bummer that it has to come in Seattle, where the ‘Hawks rarely lose. The Broncos will probably be 2-0 at this point, though, so they can eat a loss if need be. There’s a good chance they won’t find that acceptable, however, and could be on a mission to show Seattle they’re a lot better than how they played in last year’s title game.  At $482, Broncos vs. Seahawks tickets is one of the more expensive games on either schedule for the two defending conference champions.
