Denver Broncos Betting Odds

Wilson’s arrival in Denver has instantly made the Broncos contenders in what might be the toughest division in the NFL. While their schedule is not easy, Wilson could be the man to take this team to the next level. He played at an MVP level in Seattle but never received a vote. He’ll now have a boatload of talent around him and a solid defense to contain his opposition. As a result, the Broncos have real value in winning the AFC West at +260 on Fanduel Sportsbook
