Denver Broncos Betting

The Denver Broncos didn’t figure to be in the thick of the AFC West title race in 2019. Only the Oakland Raiders sat behind them on the odds to win the division at online sportsbooks heading into the regular season. That said, the franchise met linemakers expectations in the first run of the Vic Fangio regime after the Broncos met their 7-game season win total odds by putting forth a 7-9 campaign that saw them close it out with wins in four of their last five games. With Drew Lock nestled in under center and some young and exciting players situated on both sides of the ball, things look to be on the up and up for the Broncos heading into the 2020-21 season. Looks like John Elway bought himself some time as GM!

Season Recap

In getting out to a 0-4 and 1-3 start to the 2019 campaign, many were left wondering if Fangio was the right choice through the first month of play. But his naysayers started singing a much different tune after back-to-back wins were logged against the Chargers and Titans through Week 6. Though the team went on to drop four of its next five, it was more competitive in defeat evidenced by falling 15-13 at the Colts as 6-point underdogs and 27-23 in Minnesota after taking a resounding lead with them into the fourth quarter only to give it up.

The quarterback carousel that included Joe Flacco and Brandon Allen was finally put to rest in Week 13 when Lock went on to make his NFL debut and led the Broncos to the 23-20 outright win and cover against the division rival Chargers. That triumph was then followed up with a demonstrative showing in Houston where the rookie gouged the Texans porous pass defense for 309 yards and 3 TD en route to leading Denver to successive victories for the second time. Though he was humbled big time in Week 15 at Kansas City where the Broncos dropped a ninth straight decision to the rival Chiefs in a game affected by blizzard-like conditions, the Mizzou product bounced back the following two weeks in leading Denver to back-to-back wins against the Lions and Raiders.

In just five overall starts, Lock ended up completing 64.1 percent of his passes for 1,020 yards and a 7:3 TD/INT ratio. Not a bad showing for the rook at the professional level! "Overall, the last five games, I thought my audition went really well," said Lock, adding he would speak soon with both his boss, John Elway, and Peyton Manning, for tips about handling the upcoming offseason.

Denver’s offense looks to be in excellent shape moving forward with youngsters Courtland Sutton and Noah Fant in the mix. The former shined in his second season reeling in a team-high 72 receptions and turning them into 1,112 yards and 6 TD. He’ll no doubt be a player targeted early in fantasy drafts next year after making quite the impact in his sophomore campaign. Though injuries affected Fant early on, he really caught fire down the stretch and became a formidable target for Lock to take advantage of. His 562 receiving yards and 3 TD ranked second most on the team in both categories.

And let’s not forget about Philip Lindsay in the backfield after the sophomore running back logged a second straight 1000+ yard rushing season to go along with 7 TD. While he regressed just a skosh from last year’s output, you can’t be upset about a running back eclipsing the 1,000 yard rushing plateau his first two seasons in the league!

Though Chris Harris and Von Miller were still in the mix, Denver’s defense wasn’t the lock down unit NFL bettors had gotten used to in the past. Still, it ranked No. 12 overall in allowing 337 yards per game and backed it up with the league’s No. 10 ranked scoring defense (19.8 PPG). Bradley Chubb missing three-quarters of the season had much to do with it only accruing 40 overall sacks. With him expected to be fully recovered from the ACL injury that ended his season prematurely, you can bet your bottom dollar Fangio will have this unit back in high gear come next season.

"Although 7-9 is a record that nobody's proud of and it's not the rich tradition that this franchise is used to, I do think it says something about the guys," said Fangio.
