Denver aims to compete with the Kansas City Chiefs within the highly talented AFC West division.
What a difference a year makes in the NFL!
Last year’s AFC West bottom-dwelling Denver Broncos are looking to vastly improve upon their 2021 regular season performance which ended with a record of 7 wins and 10 losses.
The Mile High team is placing much of its hopes on former Seattle Seahawks QB and Super Bowl XLVIII winner Russell Wilson.
In February 2014, Wilson and the dominant Seahawks led the way to a resounding 43-8 blowout victory over Peyton Manning and the then Denver Broncos. The Broncos are hoping Wilson has much of that magic left nine years later.
Throughout the Denver-area press, there are positive stories focused around Wilson as well as Broncos’ rookie head coach Nathaniel Hackett. And with NFL parity firmly established over the last few years, professional football teams in the U.S. have plenty of reasons to believe they can have successful 2022 campaigns despite all the top-notch competition.
NFL Parity Could Attract More “Futures” Bets
Unlike NCAA Football, which some Las Vegas oddsmakers label as an unattractive market for futures bettors, the NFL hasn’t suffered from outright domination from one or two teams in quite some time.
Especially in 2021, the NFL’s best teams suffered unexpected setbacks which were neither anticipated by their own fans nor expected by oddsmakers. And that’s not mentioning that the National Football League is coming off of arguably is best postseason in league history – in which close games became a “feature” rather than an exception.
For this reason, legal Colorado online sportsbooks may see an uptick in “Futures” bets on NFL teams – including the Denver Broncos – leading up to the start of the 2022 regular season in September.
Hometown Rockies Still Stumbling In 2022 MLB Regular Season
It’s looking more and more as if the Colorado Rockies will be competing for one of the coveted 2023 MLB Draft lottery positions as opposed to actually participating in a pennant race.
With approximately 50 regular season games remaining on this year’s schedule, Colorado is nowhere near the .500 mark and currently holds a record of 48 wins and 63 losses.
The team is only 5-13 since the All-Star Break.
The Rockies will host a pair of three-game series this week against the Cardinals and Diamondbacks at Coors Field.
Without a record-setting winning streak over their final 50 games, the Rockies will be out of the postseason and will most likely finish the season as one of the worst teams in Major League Baseball.
Many local Colorado fans and sports bettors had hoped that this year’s expanded postseason format – that allows for three Wild Card teams from each league – would improve the Rockies’ chances of sliding into one of the playoff spots. But that scenario now looks very grim with just a couple of months remaining in the regular season.
