If sportsbooks company Cantor Gambling has it right, the Denver Broncos will win between seven and 11 games in 2012. The Vegas lines-setter has now posted odds for 240 of the 256 regular season NFL games (all but Week 17).

A few notes from the 2012 Broncos spreads below:

  • The Broncos open at home as two-point favorites to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but then are only favored once more before their bye in Week Seven.
  • Home teams are favored in 11 of the Broncos’ contests. Three of the games are pick-em games, so the away team is only favored once in Denver’s 2012 season.
  • The biggest predicted deficit for the Broncos is against New England in Week Five (+7). The largest predicted advantage is at home against Oakland and Tampa Bay (each -8.5).

We knew the Denver Broncos 2012 schedule was tough, and this just confirms it. A 2-4 or 3-3 start to the season would be rather brutal though; Broncos better have their upset caps on early in 2012.

Agree, disagree with these odds? Let us know in the comments.
