Denver Broncos 2012 Season Win Total Outlook & Projection:
2012 Denver Broncos Las Vegas Season Win Total Line;
As of this writing, oddsmakers have the 2012 NFL regular season
win total line
for the Denver Broncos set at 8.5 wins.
This number represents an increase of 3 wins from Denver's
prior year regular season win total line of 5.5, which the Broncos managed to
top, even with a negative 81 point differential. They
finished with a record of (8-8) thanks to several improbable
late game comebacks led by now departed QB Tim Tebow.
In steps Peyton Manning.
Clearly the team's success rests in his arm.
If his neck woes prevent him from completing passes... here comes the understatement of the year...
he won't be able to take off and run for it like Tebow.
The return of DE Elvis Dumervil should dramatically help the pass rush.
And the return of DT Ty Warren should help defend the run.
Unfortunately G Chris Kuper will miss the first 6 weeks, which is a tough break
considering the stiffness of the Broncos' early season slate of games.
In 2012 the Broncos find themselves with one of the toughest strengths of schedules in the league
with the combined winning percentage of their opponents in the prior year
checking in at the .543 mark.
In 2012 the Broncos will play 7 games versus teams that made the playoffs a season ago.
This is an increase of 1 such game compared to the prior season;
As you can see there's no let up out of the gate as 4 of these matchups come in the first 5 weeks.
Other potentially competitve matchups include the customary two tilts with San Diego-- a team which
most would agree underperformed last season.
@Kansas City in week 12, @Oakland in week 14, and home to Kansas City in week 17.
Lighter competition on paper includes home to Oakland in week 4,
@Carolina in week 10, home to Tampa Bay in week 13, and
home to Cleveland in week 16.
In 2012 we project the Broncos to go (9-7), topping the Las
Vegas season win total of 8.5 games.
Obviously this hinges on Manning, especially with such a tough schedule.
But we don't think he'd be out there, if he didn't think he still had it.
