Updated NFL Futures: Denver’s odds move from 30/1 to 14/1

Seattle decided to rebuild and ship its Super-Bowl winning QB to the Broncos for several players and draft picks galore.

Denver’s Super Bowl odds have now featured extreme movement in consecutive offseasons.

Last year, the Broncos were rumored to be in contention for Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers following several reports that came out after the first round of the NFL draft. FOXBet had Denver priced at -150 to land Rodgers, who was reportedly unhappy with his situation in Green Bay.

Rodgers would eventually remain with the Packers, which caused the Broncos’ Super Bowl odds to move back towards their original number. Denver’s odds have moved drastically again this year, but this time there will not be a correction.

The Broncos completed one of the biggest trades in NFL history on Tuesday, sending a plethora of picks and players to Seattle in exchange for veteran quarterback Russell Wilson. Quarterback Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant and defensive lineman Shelby Harris were all shipped to the Seahawks.

Tuesday’s trade caused Denver’s 2023 Super Bowl odds to move from 30/1 to 14/1 at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas. Wilson agreed to waive his no-trade provision and passed his Broncos’ physical, ending his 10-year stint with Seattle.

Seattle will officially begin a rebuilding process following a disappointing 2021-22 season. The Seahawks received two first-round picks, two second-round picks and a fifth-round pick from Denver.

Wilson recorded more wins than any quarterback has ever tallied during his first 10 seasons in the league. The Seahawks have had their 2023 Super Bowl odds adjusted in a significant way, moving from 40/1 to 200/1.

While the trade between Denver and Seattle was the major headline this week, there were plenty of other significant offseason moves as well. Green Bay will have Rodgers back for the 2022 season, although a deal has not yet been signed or agreed upon.

“Hey everyone, just wanted to clear some things up; YES I will be playing with the @packers next year, however, reports about me signing a contract are inaccurate, as are the supposed terms of the contract I “signed.” I’m very excited to be back #year18,” Rodgers tweeted.

The SuperBook made an immediate adjustment to Green Bay’s Super Bowl odds, shifting the Packers from 12/1 to 7/1. BetMGM moved their NFC North odds from -155 to -225 following the news.

Another trade happened on Wednesday, as news broke that Indianapolis traded quarterback Carson Wentz to Washington for a package of draft picks. The Colts will receive third-round picks in 2022 and 2023.

Wentz was the fifth different Week 1 starting quarterback for Indianapolis since 2016, throwing for at least 200 yards in just two of his final eight games. The Commanders are going to pay Wentz the full $28 million that he is due for the 2022 season, including a $5 million roster bonus.

There was not much of an adjustment in the betting market following the trade, though. DraftKings moved Washington from 50/1 to 40/1, while Caesars Sportsbook (60/1), FanDuel (50/1) and the SuperBook (60/1) all kept the futures number the same.
