Broncos’ Super Bowl odds improve thanks to Peyton Manning’s impending signing
The Broncos’ Super Bowl odds instantly improved when it was reported Peyton Manning told his agent to finalize a contract with Denver. Denver’s Super Bowl odds were as high as 75:1 last month, according to Pregame.com. Now they’ve dropped to 10:1 which is lower than all but four teams. According to Pregame.com, only four teams have better odds to win the Super Bowl:
- - Packers 6-1
– Patriots 7-1
– 49ers 7-1
– Saints 8-1
According to Todd Wright, the Broncos’ Super Bowl odds at the Las Vegas Hilton dropped from 30:1 to 10:1 from last Monday to this Monday. The 10:1 odds are too low for me. While Denver has a good defense and should be improved under Manning, I still think other teams are better, and I still doubt Manning will make it through the entire season. Keep in mind the odds represent the hype as much as the oddsmakers’ belief that Denver will win it all.
