With NFL training camps already in full swing, we decided to take a look at where the Vegas odds-makers think each NFL franchise stands right now.
We took a look at online betting site Bovada and pulled the numbers, ranking each of the 32 NFL franchises in order from least to most likely to win Super Bowl 51.
The next team on our list is…
LAST SEASON: 12-4 (won AFC West, Super Bowl)
COACH: Gary Kubiak (second season as Broncos head coach)
SPORTS ILLUSTRATED PRESEASON POWER RANKING: 5th
Sure, some questions remain unanswered on the offensive side… but the Broncos have the best defense in the NFL.
Burke’s take: “Winning the way Denver did last season, with its defense buoying a stagnant offense, makes for a difficult journey, but even with all o the uncertainty on offense, the Von Miller-led D is talented enough to pull it off again.”
