NFL: Denver Broncos-Training Camp Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

We’re a little over a week away from the 2021 NFL Draft, so I felt now was a good time to revisit a post I did about a a few weeks ago for the Denver Broncos odds for their 2021 win total. The line then from DraftKings was 7.5. I went over to Play Colorado to pull the updated lines from a plethora of oddsmakers and all of them had the same line.

Only eight other teams have a worse projections. I would like to see where these types of win projections land for the Broncos after the NFL Draft is completed.

The other line is who oddsmakers see as the contenders in the AFC West. As the clear favorites, the Kansas City Chiefs are dominant out in front. However, the Los Angeles Chargers with Justin Herbert entering his second season is not that far behind. Then far at the bottom is where Drew Lock and the Denver Broncos are competing for the worst AFC West odds with Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders.

I’m kind of over that to be honest. I’d like to see new General Manager George Paton do whatever it takes to not only field a contending roster, but to actually shift the culture here back to a winning one. Here’s to nailing that first draft class.
