Denver Broncos Super Bowl 50 Odds AnalysisWith time running out on the legendary career of sure-fire Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning, one main question surrounds the Denver Broncos (12-4 SU, 8-8 ATS, 10-6 O/U) as they get set for the 2015 NFL regular season. Can they make one more legitimate challenge for conference and league supremacy after falling just short two years ago and getting unceremoniously bounced out of the playoffs last season? Thanks to this expert betting breakdown on the Broncos chances of cashing in on their Super Bowl Odds, you’re going to find out whether the Broncos have what it takes to get Manning his second career Super Bowl championship or whether Denver is masquerading as a legitimate AFC title contender.
2014 Season in Review
The GoodIn spite of their postseason flameout, there was plenty of ‘good’ for the Broncos last season. The Broncos finished fourth in total offense (402.9 ypg), fourth in passing (291.3 ypg), and a stellar second in scoring (30.1 ppg). Manning ranked fourth in the league in passing (4,727 yards) while wide receiver Demaryius Thomas finished second in the league in catches and receiving yards (111 rec, 1,619) while fellow wideout Emmanuel Sanders finished third in receptions (101), and fifth in receiving yards (1,404). Running back C.J. Anderson also had a solid season in finishing 16th in rushing with 849 yards and an impressive 4.7 yards-per-carry average and hey, Manning won double-digit games for the 14th time in his 17-year career.
The BadAlong with all of their good, the Broncos also failed in other areas, as their postseason collapse would suggest. Denver needed better balance on offense as they ranked 15th in rushing and their defense gave up 22.1 points per game to finish 16th.
The UglyDenver’s postseason pounding wasn’t the only ugly thing the Broncos experienced last season. No…Manning’s play was noticeably ‘ugly’ over the final few weeks of the regular season and in their 24-13 playoff loss to Indianapolis. While I suspected that Manning was injured and we all now know that he was, the noticeable drop-off was a disturbing signal that the end is near for the sure-fire Hall of Famer – and that Denver had better ramp up its efforts even more to win a Super Bowl in 2015.
