Default Broncos over/under: 9.5 wins

Denver Broncos, 9.5 wins
Over (-110) / Under (-120): Perhaps the most interesting over/under of any team in the NFL, the Broncos are getting much more attention this offseason than last. It’s easy to assume that new quarterback Peyton Manning will automatically get this team 10 wins; that’s about what he was good for with the Colts. Cantor Sportsbook director Mike Colbert told Covers.com he doesn’t think the Broncos will nine games. Will Manning be healthy? Will his weapons be ready? Can the defense hold up? If all those answers are “yes,” the over is a nice bet. Verdict: OVER

About where I'd put it. Manning shaking off the rust/adjusting to new team, young offense around him, defense still very much in transition, tough schedule on paper. A lot of potential, but it feels optimistic to think the come out the first month looking like world beaters.

NO will be a mess this year with the bounty-gate and Balt isn't as scary this year with the age of that D and Suggs being hurt.

With the crazy schedule I see around 10. I'm not as worried about the saints game since its at home after a bye, saints aren't that great on the road.

I don't get posting an over/under on wins and making it a round number.

Gotta take the over for the Broncos. I've got them at 10 wins, and that's probably conservative - so that's pretty much free money IMHO.

No way San Diego wins 9 - they're overrated, IMHO. Take the under. KC is undervalued at 8, but not by much (I think they go 9-7). The Raiders? - take the under.

i say 10, just because the opening month and a half of the season is looking like a brutal schedule and even though he is Peyton Manning, he is still going to need to knock the rust off a little i'd imagine.

i say we start off a little out of sync, but by the end of the season we are firing on all cylinders ready to kick some ass in the playoffs

lol at sweeping the division. Hasn't happened since the 14-2 Super Bowl season.

And that kind of highlights why a lot of this evaluating game by game in the offseason is bunk. Sitting here in May we might look more talented, stable than Oak and KC. But even if that is true, once actual football rolls around we all remember how difficult winning any divisional game, no matter how bad the opposition.

Also, we went 3-3 in div last year - and all 3 opponents should be healthier at key positions? With a tough 1st place schedule outside the division, going 4-2 will be difficult but an absolute must this year, if we want to edge out SD for the title.

10 wins the division. Heck, 9 might win the division. I see the Broncos potentially having a skittish start while Melon Head gets back in the groove and the defense develops some consistency and an identity. I think we get 9.

This over/under is being set by the likelihood of injury to Manning. If they thought Manning was 100% to likely play 16 games the over/under would be more like 10.5 or even 11.

9.5 means your essentially betting on Manning's health. They're trying to entice you into the lower, because if you think Manning is going to get hurt the season ends at that very moment.

that's pretty good considering we had tebow as our QB. the only team in our division that we might not sweep is SD. 5-1 isn't bad.

This isn't to far off where I'd figure we'd be. 10-6 given our schedule is right where my expectations are.

We will be super close to that number. It's amazing how close the books get the numbers. I bet KC under 7.5 last year went from thinking I had an easy win, to ugh I'm going to lose to, ahh I got an easy win to squeaking out the under week 16. I easily hit on GB and lost big on Philly. I love going to vegas in august and betting the OU's.

I hope you're right, but KC and Oakland have been fielding ****ty teams for most of a decade now and we almost never sweep either of them, let alone both in the same year.

I'm reserving most my optimism for what I think the team could be late in the season with a little time to gel. Just feels like a set-up for a very close race with SD to me.

We got consistency at the QB position. Decker and DT will look all world with the ball on the numbers in stride. Pull back and cover them we will run wild on you.

Think this team will play with the best this year.
