If you’re a fan of the Denver Broncos, the 2020 season was rough. Between quarterback issues and missing the playoffs for the fifth year in a row, there wasn’t much to cheer for in the Mile High City.
But with an active off-season for the Broncos and Teddy Bridgewater solving Denver’s quarterback problems, Broncos betting is alive and well. The team’s NFL odds improve each week and should continue to rise if they win in Week 3 at home against the Jets.
Are you wondering about the NFL future odds for this Broncos team now that the season is underway? Did General Manager George Paton do enough in the offseason to shift future odds in this team’s favor? Read on to find out more.
Broncos Super Bowl Odds in NFL Betting
Head Coach Vic Fangio seems to have settled the quarterback debate coming out of last season, putting Teddy Bridgewater under center. The team has also improved the defense with some key free agency moves. As a result, the Broncos NFL odds are improving in futures betting (as of Sept. 22).
- Broncos odd to win the Super Bowl +4000
- Odds to win the AFC +2000
- Odds to win the AFC West +475
- Chance of winning a Wild Card spot +110
These odds should continue to improve over the next several weeks. The Broncos only have one opponent in their first five games that made the playoffs last season, making a 4-1 or 5-0 start possible.
Solid Offensive Lineup Ready to Rumble
The Denver Broncos have some young and promising receivers in Courtland Sutton and KJ Hamler. Jerry Jeudy is out for 4-6 weeks with an ankle injury, but Tim Patrick and Diontae Spencer are both capable of filling in until he returns.
Melvin Gordon and Javonte Williams provide a potent one-two punch in the backfield, while TE Noah Fant is an excellent red zone target for Bridgewater.
As the season progresses, Teddy Bridgewater should get more comfortable with the offense. Once that happens, Denver could be one of the most dangerous teams in the league.
Off-Season Moves Help the Broncos Defense Get Noticed
Denver spent much of their offseason addressing some of the weak areas in their defense. This year, after resigning key players from last season and making smart moves in free agency, this Broncos defense should be ready to dominate.
Von Miller and Bradley Chubb remain leaders in the Broncos’ defense. Resigning both Kareem Jackson and Justin Simmons and bringing in versatile CBs Kyle Fuller and Ronald Darby strengthened the Bronco’s secondary. In addition, CB Patrick Surtain II was a smart 2021 draft pick that will allow Denver to show multiple defensive schemes and blitz packages.
It will be interesting to see what bettors do when the Broncos play an elite quarterback on Oct. 3rd when Baltimore comes to Denver.
