Broncos 2017 over/under projection: 8.5 wins

KUSA—Maybe Vegas would have been more impressed had the Broncos drafted Christian McCaffrey?

Now that the NFL Draft is finished and rosters are pretty much set, the first over-under betting lines have been posted.

The Broncos over/under betting line is 8.5 wins, according to South Point sports book. There are 13 teams with greater projected win totals. 

For what it’s worth, I think the Broncos did enough to fortify their fronts to improve on their 9-7 record from last year. I think the Broncos can go 10-6 and win a playoff game in 2017.

If they get injuries to the wrong people, I suppose they could stumble to 7-9, 8-8. Keep in mind, the Broncos' most common over/under projection last season was 9 wins. They went 9-7. House won again.

Most of the NFL's over/under lines are reflections from last year’s records, although the Miami Dolphins, who were 10-6 last year, are listed at 7.5 wins, and the Dallas Cowboys, who were 13-3, come in at 9.5.

The 8-8 Baltimore Ravens, 6-10 Carolina Panthers and 6-9-1 Cincinnati Bengals are projected to bounce back with over/under wins of 9.5, 9 and 8.5, respectively.

New England is tops with an over/under of 11 followed by Seattle and Pittsburgh at 10.5 and Green Bay and Atlanta at 10 wins.

No other team has a double-digit, over/under win total. In the Broncos’ AFC West, Oakland is the favorite with 9.5 wins followed by Kansas City at 9. The San Diego Chargers are up to 7.5.

New England Patriots, 11
