Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos had a disappointing season last year, finishing 5-11, which was good for last place in the AFC West. This year, the team is hoping to turn things around and make it back to the playoffs. Their odds of winning the Super Bowl are +3000. Also in further NFL season predictions we look at their competition.

The Broncos won the Super Bowl three seasons ago, thanks to a dominating defense and the experience of Peyton Manning, who retired after the season. Since Manning’s retirement, the Broncos have been unable to find a quarterback good enough to get them back into the playoffs.

Last season, the team rotated between Trevor Siemian. Also, Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiler, who were ineffective. The Broncos decided to move on from the trio, and signed veteran quarterback Case Keenum, who led the Minnesota Vikings to the NFC Championship Game last season, to be their starter this year.

Keenum, who had bounced around the league until he found the right fit in Minnesota. Was expendable because the Vikings signed free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins during the offseason. With Keenum going into the season as the undisputed starter for the Broncos, they are hoping their confidence in him is rewarded with a playoff run.

NFL Season Predictions

The Broncos have some offensive weapons that should make life easy for Keenum. Playmakers like Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas are expected to bounce back from their disappointing 2017 campaign, now that they have a veteran at the quarterback position.

Denver’s running game is still a question mark. However, it is expected to improve this season if they have a consistent passing attack. Opponents have been able to stop the run over the past two seasons because they knew the Broncos couldn’t beat them through the air.

Defensively, the Broncos still have the core of players. These helped them win the Super Bowl three seasons ago. They were dominant in stretches last season, but tired out quickly because they spent too much time on the field. If their offense can buy them some rest next season, expect them to return to their championship form. Hope you enjoyed these picks. NFL betting predictions and more to come.
