DENVER – With the NFL season in full swing, there are certain teams to keep in mind regarding their Super Bowl odds for being overvalued. One team, in particular, is the Denver Broncos who are sitting in the top half of the Super Bowl odds board.
Currently, the Broncos Super Bowl odds are listed at +2200, which is tied with notable teams like the Arizona Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys, but also ahead of teams like the Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers.

The Injury Bug
Going into the season, the Denver Broncos had a solid roster all around on both sides of the ball. However, injuries started piling up on them quickly, and now they could be shorthanded in some weeks.
More specifically, key players such as receiver, Jerry Jeudy, who is currently on IR, and receiver KJ Hamler, who is out for the season with a torn ACL.

On the defensive end, they lost arguably their best linebacker in Bradley Chubb in addition to linebackers, Natrez Patrick, Josey Jewell, and Jonas Griffith.
With so many holes across the field for their team involving such talented players, it is hard to see them gaining enough strength to make a strong push for the playoffs let alone the Super Bowl.
Lack Of Experience
When it comes down to their experience, the Broncos barely have any players with playoff experience. Prior to the season's start, there were just 15 players on the 90-man roster that had a combined 57 playoff games.
Something else to take into consideration is that the Broncos have not made it back to playoffs since 2015 when they won the Super Bowl. They do not have nearly enough recent playoff experience as some of the other AFC playoff contenders do, like the Kansas City Chiefs or Tennessee Titans.
While their odds do offer a nice payout, a better decision could be made somewhere else on the board and even on a team with longer odds on sportsbooks when it comes to Super Bowl 56 victory.
