NFL: Super Bowl 50-Carolina Panthers vs Denver Broncos Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

I have written several posts on the Vegas odds for the Denver Broncos in 2016 and now we finally have the point spreads for every game excluding Week 17 as oddmakers do not give spreads for games during the final week of the season.

The Broncos are favored in twelve of those fifteen contests.

Week 1: Carolina Panthers at Denver (-1.5)

Week 2: Indianapolis Colts at Denver (-5)

Week 3: Denver at Cincinnati Bengals (-3)

Week 4: Denver (-2.5) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Week 5: Atlanta Falcons at Denver (-6.5)

Week 6: Denver (-3) at San Diego Chargers

Week 7: Houston Texans at Denver (-6.5)

Week 8: San Diego Chargers at Denver (-7)

Week 9: Denver (-1) at Oakland Raiders

Week 10: Denver (-1) at New Orleans Saints

Week 11: BYE

Week 12: Kansas City Chiefs at Denver (-3)

Week 13: Denver (-3.5) at Jacksonville Jaguars

Week 14: Denver (-5.5) at Tennessee Titans

Week 15: New England Patriots (-1) at Denver

Week 16: Denver at Kansas City Chiefs (-1.5)

The worst spread is on the road in Week 3 against the Bengals, while the other two occur late in the year at home against the Patriots and on Christmas Day against the Chiefs. The Panthers line is also borderline as the Broncos are only favored 1.5 despite being the home team.

Twelve games is about what I expect the Broncos to come close to winning, so this falls in line with my expectations.
