Can Peyton Manning Lead the Denver Broncos to a Super Bowl?
The addition of Peyton Manning to the Denver Broncos is one of the biggest and most talked about free agent additions in history, as the Indianapolis Colts decided to part ways with the superstar quarterback after he missed the entire 2012 NFL season after having neck surgery. Many people were concerned that he would never be able to play football again, and that in his mid to late 30's, that he should really just look into hanging it up. It has been just the opposite though, as Manning decided that he was definitely going to continue playing, and he is now going to take over the starting role from the most talked about quarterback of LAST season in Tim Tebow.
While the addition of Manning to the Broncos didn't make them the instant betting favorites to win the Super Bowl, the question that has constantly came up is whether or not Manning can lead this team to a Super Bowl. Currently the Broncos come in with odds of +1800 which makes them much longer odds than many teams in the NFL, and also the mid-level teams in the NFL. While they may not be favorites to win the Super Bowl, they could be an intriguing pick to win it all thanks to their fairly weak division.

The Broncos come from the AFC West, which features teams with a ton of question marks. For starters, the Kansas City Chiefs have some serious quarterback issues, as well as some other problems that plagued them last year. They will be back at full strength and could actually be the team to give the Broncos the biggest issue. The San Diego Chargers on the other hand seem to consistently disappoint over the past few seasons, and a large part of that has been the fact that they seem to turn the ball over at crucial times in the games. Last but not least is the Oakland Raiders who no one really knows what to expect from. Obviously they have one of the strongest options in the running game in Darren McFadden, so they could be a team to watch.
I think that if Manning seems to be able to go through the full season at full strength then the Broncos could a great value bet to win the Super Bowl. While the teams like the Patriots and Packers are going to get the most love from sports bettors, for one of the first times ever, Peyton Manning is sort of flying under the radar.
