In breaking news, ESPN is reporting that Peyton Manning has told his agent to complete negotiations with the Denver Broncos. Manning’s long awaited decision likely spells the end of the Tim Tebow era in Denver, and has made an immediate impact on the Broncos future odds.
According to Pinnacle’s futures odds, Denver was +2613 to win the AFC and +4097 to win the Super Bowl before bringing in the 11-time Pro Bowler and 4-time MVP. However, according to Sportsbook.com, the Broncos have shot up to +450 to win the AFC and +1000 to win the Super Bowl. Although the signing is not yet official, this massive move shows what oddsmakers think about Manning’s ability to stay healthy next season.
Last season the Broncos won the AFC West despite an 8-8 record and shocked fans everywhere with a thrilling 29-23 overtime victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
