Broncos awards odds with the best value

Pat Surtain has incredible value for Defensive Player of the Year, while Sean Payton is a favorite for Coach of the Year.

When it comes to sports betting, it’s all about the value.

Where can you find the edge on the sportsbook?

There are a couple of markets for bettors and fans to consider for the Denver Broncos and awards odds. Even if you don’t bet, the likelihood of them happening is fun fodder.

Let’s start with Defensive Player of the Year and Pat Surtain II.

Currently at DraftKings Sportsbook, the Broncos cornerback sits at +4,000. As I told Adam Malnati on the latest Broncos Odds & Endzones Podcast, I’ll put a flyer on Surtain to win this until he does. It’s a matter of when not if.

With Sean Payton now in the fold, if the offense can do what his offenses have done in the past, that increases Surtain’s chances. From Denver scoring more points and forcing the opposing offense to throw more, to the team's success, it’s there for Surtain to win this award.

Speaking of Payton, he’s a favorite for Coach of the Year at +900. He trails only the Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell.

That’s not as good of a value as Surtain, but it’s still good. And this has a great chance to hit.

For Payton to win the award, one of two things needs to happen:

  • The Broncos make the NFL Playoffs
  • Russell Wilson turns it around

If both of those happen, Payton is a lock to win Coach of the Year.

As for Wilson, there may be an inclination to put a bet on him to win Comeback Player of the Year. However, if Damar Hamlin steps foot on the field at all in 2023 (and that looks incredibly likely), he’ll win the award going away.
