Oddsmakers have Broncos favored in just five games

New, comments

The Denver Broncos are not favored in very many games in 2020 according to some oddsmakers.

NFL: Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos have a fairly tough schedule in 2020, which has stacking the odds against them throughout much of the year. They are underdogs in every road game except one and are favored in just four of eight home games. The one caveat is that they are not heavy underdogs in most games.

The floor for the Broncos seems to be pretty low as far as oddsmakers are concerned. Looking over the list, I think the Broncos win the first eight on this list and then take two more from there. The most likely two would be on the road against the Chargers and the Raiders/Falcons games.

That would give Denver a 10-6 record, but getting there will require a very slim margin of error. If they drop any of those first eight, then things get difficult.


How many games do you think the Broncos win in 2020?
