Denver Broncos Odds

Written by

The Denver Broncos took a big step forward after landing a franchise QB over the offseason. The team swung a blockbuster trade for Russell Wilson, which instantly vaults the club into contention in the AFC. Denver is now in the upper tier of teams in the latest Super Bowl odds.

Fortunes can change in a hurry in the NFL, and the acquisition of Wilson has proven that once again. Interestingly, the Broncos are on the road against Wilson’s former club, the Seattle Seahawks, in Week 1 on Monday Night Football. Here’s a closer look at the latest Broncos betting odds and angles.

Denver odds: Spread, moneyline, and over/under

Week 1 odds: Wilson returns to Seattle on MNF opener

The Broncos and Seahawks both finished last season at 7-10 and were on the outside looking in during last year’s NFL playoffs. They also linked up for a blockbuster trade in the offseason that saw Russell Wilson move from Seattle to Denver.

Preseason expectations for the two clubs are vastly different. Sportsbooks view the Broncos as a contender, while the Seahawks have moved to the back of the pack.

  • Moneyline: Traditionally, Seattle has a reputation as a tough place for visitors. However, the home field advantage wasn’t great last season, as the Seahawks were just 3-5 at Lumen Field. The Broncos had the same record on the road a season ago. Denver is a -190 moneyline favorite.
  • Spread: Denver is a 4-point road favorite for the Monday Night Football opener. The Broncos went 8-9 against the spread last season, while the Seahawks were 9-8.
  • Over/Under: Of the 16 games on the Week 1 docket, this one has the lowest over/under line at 41 points. Last season, both clubs skewed toward the under. Denver had a mark of 5-12 on overs, while Seattle checked in at 6-10-1.

Denver Broncos odds to win the Super Bowl

Last Updated: June 30

When DraftKings Sportsbook released odds on Super Bowl 57, the Broncos were toward the middle of the pack at +3500. The arrow has been pointing up since the trade for Wilson, and the team now checks in at +1600, which is tied for seventh on the board.

Now that the QB position is settled, sportsbooks view the Broncos as a viable Super Bowl contender. That said, the AFC looks as if it could be incredibly competitive this season. The current Super Bowl futures favorites are the Buffalo Bills and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Denver Broncos news and notes

The Broncos made one of the biggest splashes of the NFL offseason with their trade for Wilson. The club made another big score in free agency with the signing of LB Randy Gregory. Among the players who have moved on from Denver are QB Teddy Bridgewater and CB Bryce Callahan.

The team’s first-round pick at this year’s NFL draft was part of the cost of acquiring Wilson. Denver wasn’t on the clock until the end of round two when it picked LB Nik Bonitto, followed by TE Greg Dulcich in the third. The addition of Wilson alone should help Denver take some steps forward, while adding Gregory could further bolster the defense.
