Over/Under at seven for the Denver Broncos win total in 2018

New, comments

Las Vegas doesn’t think the Denver Broncos will do much to rebound from their disappointing 2017 season.

Oddsmakers have pegged the Denver Broncos as a bottom feeder team in the NFL in 2018. The over/under for wins is set at seven, which sounds better than 5-11 but it isn’t. There are only nine other teams that have worse win total odds than Denver.

Fortunately, we’re a long ways away from the regular season. No one - not even Las Vegas - knows just how well this team will mesh together and play for each other on game day. One thing that is certain is that head coach Vance Joseph is coaching for his life in 2018. He’ll need a few more than seven wins to secure a third season as the lead guy on the sideline.
