Broncos 2021 NFL Draft Bet
After a 5-11 finish last season, the Denver Broncos need help all over the football field.
Most glaring, the Broncos need to find their long-term answer at the quarterback position. In 2019, the Broncos drafted Drew Lock in the second round. It is fair to assume they could easily move on from him if they could get their hands on a top prospect like Trey Lance or Mac Jones.
Here are a few potentially profitable Denver Broncos NFL Draft prop bets to wager on.

Position of Denver Broncos First Drafted Player: Offense (-140)
The safe bet here is to ride with the favorite. Denver’s GM George Patton hopefully realizes that even if his team strikes out on a top quarterback prospect, addressing a need on the offensive side of the football is imperative.
If all four quarterback prospects are selected before No. 9 overall, and Denver does not trade up to grab one, that likely means that offensive linemen Penei Sewell or Rashawn Slater could be in play.
While it could be enticing for the Broncos to nab top cornerbacks Patrick Surtain II or Jaycee Horn, they just added Kyle Fuller this offseason and still employ Ronald Darby and Justin Simmons in the secondary. An offensive player should be the safe pick here.
Broncos To Draft Quarterback Trey Lance (+300)
Currently, the Broncos are the betting favorites to land North Dakota State quarterback Trey Lance.
As long as nothing bewildering happens with Lance being selected inside the Top 4 selections, he will likely be the next quarterback of the Broncos. As the board stands right now, the Atlanta Falcons pose the biggest threat to spoiling this bet pick if they elect to draft Matt Ryan‘s successor at No. 4 overall.
The quarterback position should be Denver’s main priority in the first round but these +300 odds for them to land Lance is much more enticing than the -130 odds to draft any quarterback.
