Pat Surtain II celebrates with ball

Key Takeaways:

  • The Denver Broncos' playoff chances are 15.4% according to odds from DraftKings Sportsbook.
  • The Broncos have the third-longest playoff odds across the NFL.
  • The Broncos' Super Bowl LIX odds are among the longest in the league.

With the draft wrapped up and the Broncos schedule released, I'll be tracking and updating the Broncos playoff chances from the offseason through the end of the year with odds from the top Colorado sportsbooks.

What Are the Denver Broncos Playoff Chances?

Here is a table charting the Broncos' playoff chances, as well as Super Bowl chances, AFC Championship chances, and AFC West chances.

πŸ’ͺ Broncos Playoff Chances15.4% (+550)
πŸ† Broncos to Win Super Bowl LIX0.83% (+12000)
πŸ‘‘ Broncos Win AFC1.23% (+8000)
πŸ”₯ Broncos Win AFC West6.25% (+1500)
βœ… Odds Last Verified by ExpertMay 17, 2024

I calculated the Broncos' chances based on the implied probability of the team's odds from DraftKings Sportsbook Colorado.

The Broncos' chances of winning the Super Bowl are among the longest in the NFL after a disappointing 8-9 season in 2023 and roster turnover on both sides of the ball this offseason.

Do the Broncos Have a Chance of Making the Playoffs?

At this point of the offseason, every team has a chance to make the playoffs, including the Broncos. Although the Broncos currently have the third-longest odds to make the playoffs, anything can happen and there are surprises every year.

Are the Broncos Out of the Playoffs?

The Broncos are not out of playoffs due to the fact the season doesn't officially start for several months. Looking at betting odds, however, DraftKings Sportsbook is heavily favoring the Broncos missing the playoffs for a ninth straight season. DraftKings has Denver missing the playoffs at -650, or an 86.7% chance.

Broncos Odds: Broncos Schedule 2024 and Game Lines

The Denver Broncos' 2024-2025 season schedule was recently released and with it came game lines for each of those contests. Here is the weekly schedule along with the Broncos odds from DraftKings as of May 2024.

Week 18, TBDvs Kansas City ChiefsTBD+4+160

A quick look at the Broncos' 2024 schedule and game lines shows they are currently favored in a pitiful two games. This shouldn't be all that surprising, however, considering the Broncos win total currently sits at 5.5, which is good for the third-lowest win total in the NFL.

Key Contributors Toward Broncos Playoff Chances

As is the case with the majority of NFL franchises, the Broncos' success in 2024 will depend on what happens at the quarterback position. After releasing Russell Wilson, Denver traded for Zach Wilson and spent a first round draft pick on Bo Nix, both of whom will presumably compete with Jarrett Stidham. The Broncos need to figure out a way to get Courtland Sutton back to the team sooner rather than later, as the wide receiver room looks quite grim in his absence. Tim Patrick has been a key locker room piece but is coming off another major knee injury, Marvin Mims didn't have a chance to show much in his rookie season, new face Josh Reynolds is a solid player, and Troy Franklin fell to the fourth round for a reason. The health and subsequent performance of running back Javonte Williams could also play a key part in the Broncos playoff chances, especially if the passing game sputters.

Defensively, the release of Justin Simmons creates a massive void both on and off the field. Levi Wallace provides a solid veteran option, but the headline name is obviously Patrick Surtain II. How well the defense performs as a whole will come down to how disruptive the front seven can be.

Where Can I Bet on the Denver Broncos to Make the Playoffs?

Bettors in Colorado can bet on the Broncos to make the playoffs at DraftKings Colorado and other Colorado sports betting apps. There are multiple sportsbooks that offer differing bets that can also be assessed to allow you to make the best decision on which odds are more appealing to you.

Broncos Playoff Picture

If the Broncos are to make a push for the playoffs this year, it will almost certainly come from a wild card spot in the AFC. Crazier things have happened, but it's difficult to see a scenario where the Chiefs don't win the AFC West, which would be Denver's best hope of making the postseason.

Where Do the Broncos Rank in the AFC Playoff Standings?

With the season yet to start, the Broncos are on the same page as the rest of the AFC at 0-0.

Broncos Postseason Outlook and Predictions

Given the amount of turnover at key positions this offseason, combined with the lack of true game-changing talent across the board, it's really hard to see Denver making a legitimate playoff push this season. Oddsmakers see it the same way, as the Broncos have some of the longest odds across every major futures market currently available.
