The Denver Broncos are one of the favorites in the AFC heading in to the season and the momentum is riding high following an impressive outing during Peyton Manning’s first year with the team. Denver has added some additional weapons for Manning and he seems to be back to 100 percent, so it looks like they will be able to build on their success from last year and put together another impressive season.
Last season Denver had 13 wins, so how do odds makers think their number of wins will stack up this year?
Plenty of people place wagers on the win totals for teams heading in to the year and the fine folks of Bovada.lv have recently updated their odds following the recent moves and news.
Kevin Bradley, Sports Book Manager of Bovada.lv says:
“NFL Season Win Totals is one of our most popular bets here at Bovada, and as a result, we have had some significant movement based on the amount of money we are taking on certain teams. Arizona, with our second lowest total of 5.5 wins has seen 90% of the action on the over which is the same case for New Orleans, who are only taking over money on their total of 9. The Patriots total, due to the loss of Hernandez and the status of Gronkowski, has dropped from 11.5 to 11 and in turn, the Dolphins who are also getting bet pretty heavily have moved from 7.5 to 8.”
So how does Vegas see the Browns stacking up in the NFL this season? Here are the over/under odds for their 2013 win total:
Over: 11½ (EVEN)
Under: 11½ (-130)
The team could get off to a slow start if Von Miller is absent from the defensive side of the ball, but Manning should be able to carry the team and put up the points they need to win. If Denver is unable to reach 12 wins in the regular season, it may be a disappointment to the fans.
