Broncos’ Super Bowl odds plummet after Week 14 loss


So you’re saying there’s a chance.

After the Broncos won three straight, oddsmaker Bovada put their chances to win the Super Bowl at 66-to-1 odds. However, that loss to the 49ers have plummeted their numbers down to 150-to-1.

Here’s a look at some of the other lines:

  • The Broncos are 10-to-1 odds to make the playoffs.
  • Phillip Lindsay is 15-to-1 to win offensive rookie of the year, behind Saquon Barkley (2/19) and Baker Mayfield (9/2).
  • Bradley Chubb is 11-to-1 to win defensive rookie of the year, behind Derwin James (1/2), Darius Leonard (17/10) and Leighton Vander Esch (11/2).
