Broncos odds 2014: More spreads show Broncos are heavily favored in 2014

Jeff Gross

LVH Sportsbook has announced point spreads for 96 games in 2014, and the Broncos are featured in 10 of them.

We already know the Broncos are big seven-point favorites on their opening night Sunday Night Football tilt against the Indianapolis Colts on September 7th. Now we know the early spreads for nine of their other games as well.

LVH Sportsbook in Vegas has opened betting for 96 games in 2014, according to National Football Post, and the Broncos are featured in 10 of them. They are:

  • Week 1 - Broncos (-7) vs. Colts
  • Week 2 - Broncos (-7.5) vs. Chiefs
  • Week 3 - Broncos (+3.5) at Seahawks
  • Week 7 - Broncos (-3.5) vs. 49ers
  • Week 8 - Broncos (-7.5) vs. Chargers
  • Week 9 - Broncos (+3) at Patriots
  • Week 10 - Broncos (-7.5) at Raiders
  • Week 13 - Broncos (-3.5) at Chiefs
  • Week 15 - Broncos (-3.5) at Chargers
  • Week 16 - Broncos (-3) at Bengals

Notes

Broncos are favored in 8 of 10

Only road games against the Seahawks (+3.5) and Patriots (+3) have the Broncos as underdogs in 2014 so far.

31.5-point difference from Super Bowl XLVIII

The Broncos lost the Super Bowl to the Seahawks by 35. Now they're only underdogs to Seattle by 3.5. Is this a sign of confidence in Denver's offseason, or a sign that people believe the Super Bowl outcome was more of a fluke than a true representation of the Broncos on their best day?

Broncos are road favorites four times

This includes three games against the AFC West in weeks 10-15.

Big favorites often

The Broncos are 7-point-or-higher favorites in four of these ten games: against Indy in the opener, then once against each AFC West opponent (vs. Chiefs, vs. Chargers, at Raiders).

Sweeping the AFC West

Five of Denver's six AFC West matchups are listed, and the Broncos are favored in all of them. The last week of the season features Broncos vs. Raiders; there's no point spread there likely because bettors don't want to gamble in Week 17, full of potential playoff scenarios, just yet. But I'm pretty sure the Broncos would be favored come Week 17.

The Broncos failed to sweep the AFC West last year - do you think they'll succeed this year?
