The Denver Broncos suffered numerous injuries last year, but in 2021 the defense comes back healthy and there appears to be an open competition for the starting quarterback spot. With solid quarterback play, they could be a sneaky choice for the most improved team this season. The Game Day is here to preview some of the best Broncos prop bets for 2021.

With a historic amount of money on IR last season — nearly all of it from the defensive side of the ball — the Broncos still found a way to win five games despite Drew Lock‘s struggles under center. Better health and an upgrade at quarterback to Teddy Bridgewater should help Denver win at least half its games, especially with an extra game on the schedule this year.
Division Finishing Position: 3rd (+175)
The Kansas City Chiefs are the obvious favorite to win the AFC West again, while the Las Vegas Raiders are the clear fourth team due to their lack of talent. The middle two spots are up for grabs, but the Los Angeles Chargers appear to be ahead of Denver after reworking their offensive line, which should give Justin Herbert even more protection. Given that, the Broncos appear ticketed for third in the division.
Exact Regular Season Wins: 9 (+500)
This Broncos team should be improved and they are dangerous, but they also play in a tough division. On top of that, head coach Vic Fangio has shown that he is not the best game manager, which will likely cost his team wins. Experience, or lack thereof, is still an issue for the offense in some areas and may cost them a few close games. As a result, Denver will likely fall below double-digit wins, but they at least have the talent to get close.
Broncos Prop Bets 2021: Player Bet Picks
Jerry Jeudy Receiving TDs: Under 4.5 (+120)
While Jeudy is a talented receiver, he’s a bit overvalued by some analysts due to his college success. Yes, he should be a big part of this Denver offense, but he’s not really much of a red-zone threat, especially with Courtland Sutton back. Jeudy caught just three touchdowns last season despite playing every game, and his TD total will likely remain low for 2021, especially if the Broncos continue to be run-heavy.
Noah Fant Receiving Yards: Over 690.5 (-115)
While Sutton being back may take some targets away from Fant, his role as an athletic tight end is safe, especially in Pat Shurmur‘s system. Fant saw 93 targets last year and should be able to crack 100 with a 17-game schedule if he stays healthy. He is a big body to target in the red zone and on third downs, but he also has the athleticism to break off big plays and should be able to improve upon his 673 yards from last season.
Bradley Chubb Sacks: Over 8.5 (-110)
With Von Miller out all of last season, Chubb recorded 7.5 sacks in 14 games. Miller’s presence back on the other side of the line will be huge for Chubb, as the offense’s protection will key in on Miller more often than not. This creates more individual blocking assignments on Chubb, thus leading to more sacks. After notching 12 sacks as a rookie in 2018, Chubb has the potential to reach double-digits again.
