Broncos division odds show team could finish anywhere from second to last

Oddsmakers are all over the map with the Denver Broncos, but they ended up with the best odds of finishing last in the AFC West in 2020.

A previous version of this post incorrectly identified the Broncos odds for finishing last. This is the corrected version. released their NFL odds for each division this week and oddsmakers have pegged the Denver Broncos as a team that could finish first, second, third, or fourth in the AFC West.

In the early version of this post, I misread the Broncos odds completely. Their odds are actually slightly better than the Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers across the board. As a fan, that certainly makes me feel better. I saw 2/1 and immediately got angry. I’ll have to be more careful next time!

The fact remains, oddsmakers have a three team horse race for second place. The margin of error for all three is razor thin as far as they are concerned. What do you think of these odds? To me, it still seems the AFC West is too close to call for second place.
