2017 Denver Broncos Futures Bet Season Win Total
Who’s your quarterback?
Will it be Trevor Siemian or 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch. Trevor Siemian, who threw for 3,401 yards and 18 touchdowns (with 10 interceptions) in 14 games last season. The 6-7, 244-pound Lynch filled in for Siemian twice as a starter last year. The Broncos loaded up on the offensive line during off-season. Signing former Dallas Cowboys guard Ronald Leary and former Oakland Raiders right tackle Menelik Watson, in addition to drafting Utah offensive tackle Garett Bolles in the first round.
The defense is ready
A potent secondary returns for the Broncos with cornerbacks Aqib Talib, Chris Harris and Bradley Roby, as well as safeties T. J. Ward and Darian Stewart. Denver also drafted Brendan Langley in the third round. It will be a challenge to live up to the performance of last year’s No. 1 pass defense, which also allowed an NFL-low 55.4% completion percentage.
Broncos Season Win Total Bet
The Broncos finished 9-7 last year because they had one of the top defenses in the NFL. Quarterback is the weak link on this team with Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian your choice as a starter this year. The Broncos have decent receivers but without consistent quarterback play the talent will go wasted. The defense can not play better than it did last season and I expect a small drop off. With the lack of offense any decline in the defense will cause the Broncos to tumble this season. Taking the under bet. Every sportsbook has the Broncos at 8.5 wins. The difference is 5Dimes that also has season win totals from 6.5 to 9.5. I am going to blend my bets with 50% at Bovada on under 8.5 at (-130) and 50% at 5Dimes under 8 at (+120)
