As we approach the 2020 NFL season — however it may end up looking — the talk surrounding the Denver Broncos will likely regard the offense for the most part — and for good reason.

Denver added six offensive players in this year’s draft, four of whom are pass-catchers, including arguably the best wide receiver (Jerry Jeudy) and the fastest tight end (Albert Okwuegbunam). And, of course, Broncos fans are still waiting to see if second-year quarterback Drew Lock is the real deal.

But the Broncos’ best player still remains on the defensive side of the ball.

Von Miller didn’t have quite the season that’s become expected of him in 2019. His eight sacks were the lowest since 2013 — a year in which he played just nine games. But oddsmakers are still keeping Miller toward the top of Defensive Player of the Year odds board.

Miller, along with Bradley Chubb — who played just four games last season — are the two Broncos available to bet to win the award.

Denver Broncos Defensive Player of the Year Betting Odds

  • Von Miller +2000
  • Bradley Chubb +4000

[Bet now at DraftKings. CO, NJ, PA, IN and WV only.]

For those new to reading betting odds, the +2000 next to Miller’s name means a $100 bet would return $2,000 if he were to win the award. For Chubb, it would return $4,000.

And while +2000 might be seen as a major longshot in another market, it actually ranks tied for seventh in one as open as this (the favorite, Aaron Donald, for reference, is +700). Chubb’s +4000 odds rank 22nd.

As for the implied likelihood of either one winning, Miller’s +2000 odds (read as “20 to 1”) imply a 4.76% chance, while Chubb’s imply a 2.44% chance.

As mentioned, Chubb played just a quarter of the 2019 season thanks to a torn ACL. In his only full season — his 2018 rookie campaign — he racked up 12 sacks, tied for 15th in the league.

It’s worth noting, too, that Chubb’s Comeback Player of the Year odds sit at +3300. If you think he’ll be a top defensive player, but perhaps not the best, those odds may be a bit more intriguing. Remember, he’ll be up against both Rob Gronkowski and Ben Roethlisberger in that category.

Miller, on the other hand, has put up double-digit sack numbers in seven of his nine seasons. And in their one full season together, the duo combined for 26.5.

So for those expecting an even stronger 2020 performance, a bet on Miller or Chubb to win the Defensive Player of the Year may prove to be a worthwhile one.
