While most NFL fans and handicappers have paid attention to the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers this offseason, one team has flown under the radar to become a second-tier team to win the Super Bowl. The Denver Broncos offer +1800 odds to take the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Sounds crazy, right? But it’s true. At +1800, the Broncos are around the fourth or fifth AFC choice to win Super Bowl 56. Because the Broncos have become the wise guy pick to win the NFL Championship, we thought it was time to perform a value NFL Betting odds analysis of Denver’s future options for value.

2021 NFL Season
- When: Sep. 9, 2021 – Jan. 9, 2022
Broncos to Win Super Bowl 56 +1800
To win the Super Bowl, the Broncos must first win the AFC. Heck, to win the AFC, the Broncos must first make the playoffs. Denver should be a good team. The defense should be dynamite and both Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater are good quarterbacks. But the odds are ridiculous. No way the Denver Broncos, who play in the AFC West with the Kansas City Chiefs, Las Vegas Raiders, and Los Angeles Chargers, should offer odds this low to win the Super Bowl.

Broncos AFC Championship +1200
Denver will have to beat either KC, the Cleveland Browns, the Buffalo Bills, or the Tennessee Titans if they hope to win the AFC. Who knows? The Broncos might have to beat 3 of the 4 teams and they may even have to win games on the road. Again, Denver should be a good team. But 12-to-1 to win the AFC? Those are as underlaid odds as it gets.

Broncos Worst Regular Season Record +2800
Denver’s defense ensures they don’t end up with this season’s worst NFL record. The Broncos should have no trouble winning enough games to have a respectable season. The +2800, like most of the future odds on the Denver Broncos, are underlaid.

Broncos AFC West Division +400
Kansas City is a -250 chalk. Denver shouldn’t beat KC, but they have a better shot of beating the Chiefs and winning the division than the Las Vegas Raiders. Denver’s chances of winning the division are on par with the Chargers’. If you’re a believer, know you’re getting overlay odds on the Denver Broncos to win the division.

Vic Fangio Coach of the Year +3300
The odds on Vic Fangio to win NFL Coach of the Year aren’t underlaid or overlaid. They’re fair. If Fangio pulls it off and the Broncos win their division, then it will be difficult to keep the trophy out of his hands. But beating KC and winning the division won’t be easy. So the odds are fair.
Vic Fangio Coach of the Year Odds: Fair
Bradley Chubb NFL Defensive Player of the Year +3300
Chubb sat out most of 2019. So it was nice to see one of Denver’s most important players step back onto the field for almost every game in 2020. Chubb performed well, recording 26 solo tackles, 7.5 sacks, and the best part, 5 safeties. He also forced a fumble. To win NFL DPOY, though, Chubb must post better stats.
Will he? There’s a possibility. Von Miller returns from an injury. Teams can’t double both Miller and Chubb. If they leave Chubb alone, he could increase his sack total to 14 or 15. The odds make Bradley Chubb an overlay.

Denver Broncos Regular Season Wins
- Over 8 ½ -110
- Under 8 ½ -120
How could a team at +1800 to win the Super Bowl show a win total of 8 ½? Shouldn’t the win total be closer to 10 or even 11?
Yep. But the odds are the odds. We’re not complaining because the Broncos would have to not play defense for this to go under. Denver should start the season 3-0 after beating the Giants, Jags, and Jets.
Dallas, Philadelphia, Detroit, and Vegas twice are also possible victories. If Denver performs the way they should, they’d reach 8 wins for sure.
Where will the final win come from? Baltimore must travel to Denver. That’s a likely victory. So is a split with the Chargers. Denver has a shot to upset Kansas City at home.
There’s also a game at home versus the Washington Football Team and one against the Cincinnati Bengals. So, yes, the Broncos could easily reach 9 wins.
Broncos Regular Season Wins Pick: Over 8 ½ -110
