Projected season win totals for the Denver Broncos are in full swing. Find out how high expectations are and where the Denver Broncos stack up in NFL betting futures. 

<p><strong>Denver Broncos Down To Fifth Overall Faves</strong><br /> With a disappointing 2014-2015 postseason highlighted by an untimely exit at the hands of Andrew Luck and the Colts and a 39-year-old Peyton Manning leading the Denver Broncos, it's not surprising that they've come down in NFL betting markets from season's past. They are still amongst the top five contenders (Table 1) and that's something to hang one's hat on.</p> <p>The Denver Broncos were runners up to Seattle Seahawks two years ago after suffering one of the worst defeats in Super Bowl betting. Last year, they were unceremoniously dumped by Manning's heir apparent in Indianapolis. There's a lot of speculation about Peyton Manning's fitness and ability to compete at a high level for the duration of the regular season and well into the postseason. For now, the bookies aren't writing off the 39-year-old, sure-fire Hall of Famer.</p> <p> </p> <table border="1" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1" style="width:500px;" summary="NFL Futures Odds">

href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/nfl/nfl-betting-home-vs-away-impact-the-odds/40534/" target="_blank" title="NFL Betting: Home vs. Away Impact on the Odds">have been nigh unbeatable at home</a> and in the division as well. At home, they are 22-2-0 SU in the last three years and in their division they are 17-1 SU in the AFC West.</p> <p>Their season win total average over the last five years improved to 10 entirely because of Peyton's ability to carry the team to double-digit season totals three years running. If we whittle it down to just the Peyton Era, their seasonal average is 12.67 wins. That's comparable to the New England Patriots' season win total average of 12.6 over the last five years.</p> <p>Based on recent stats, the projected 10 wins on the season does seem a tad low for the Broncos, prompting us to consider the Over for our  <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/nfl/" target="_blank" title="Free NFL Picks &amp; Football Predictions">NFL picks</a> again in early NFL betting markets. The 2015-2016 NFL schedulers aren't giving the Broncos any favours by handing them the tenth toughest schedule (based on last season's winning percentage of their opponents). Then again, it could have been worse. If the Broncos can continue their dominance in the AFC West, they technically only need to win 50% of their remaining ten games to push the projected total of 10 games. Surely, the Broncos are  still good for more than five wins in their remaining ten games outside of the AFC West division?</p>
