The Denver Broncos will open road underdogs in Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Denver Broncos will open the season on the road in Week 1 against the Seattle Seahawks. According to DraftKings Sportsbook, oddsmakers have given the home team a 4.5-point advantage making Denver the underdog. The over/under stands at 43. This spread dropped just minutes after the official Broncos 2024 schedule dropped.

This spread seems like it could grow further in Seattle’s advantage given that Denver will likely be starting a rookie quarterback in Bo Nix or even worse having Zach Wilson be the Week 1 starter with Nix not ready to go. What they have going for them is that they have the most season opening wins since 1960 having gone 40-22-1 in that span, but they have lost their last two season-openers.

As someone who lives in Idaho, I dislike the Seahawks about as much as a Broncos fan can dislike that franchise. However, with Denver on a serious rebuilding effort and a rookie quarterback it will come down to progress for me. How is this team progressing each week and how does Bo Nix look out there on the field. That is where my attention will be focused with an eye on that future.

What do you think of the Broncos Week 1 line against the Seahawks here?
