Back in 2017, the Denver Broncos submitted a bid to host the 2020 NFL draft. finally that event was awarded to Las Vegas. Last week, the NFL announced 2021 was awarded to Cleveland and 2023 to Kansas City.
But what about 2022? One oddsmaker says it’s a good bet that Denver could be the site for the draft. BetOnline.ag on Tuesday has the Broncos as the third favorites at 3-to-1 odds, behind Boston (2/1) and Washington (5/2).
“The draft is thing we’d really like to see accomplished,” Broncos president and CEO Joe Ellis told The Denver Post in 2017. “I think it’d be nice for Mr. B (owner Pat Bowlen), to know that the city he’s witnessed tremendous support from in terms of what they’ve done for the Broncos and how important the Broncos are to people and how important football is people.”
As for the Broncos’ chances at wframe the Super Bowl this coming season, the odds aren’t as nice. BetOnline has Denver at 50/1 odds — tied for 21st among the 32 teams. Bovada besides has Denver at 21st, but at 60/1 odds.
