The Bye Line: Why Surtain Will Win Rookie Of The Year

Zach Bye | 104.3 The Fan

August 24, 2021

It’s hard to believe that the NFL’s preseason is coming to a close. Hardcore football fans wait months in anticipation for training camp and preseason like we do that hot loaf of bread and butter when sitting down for a dinner out. The perfect “hold you over” appetizer before the real thing starts.

Well, week one of the NFL season is so close you can smell it coming out of the proverbial kitchen. And like a restaurant’s cutoff time to place an order, kickoff on the second weekend of September is the deadline to get in a futures bet. Finding the balance between a futures ticket that has good value but also a realistic chance of hitting can be tricky. We’d all love a 40-1 ticket to cash, but is that really a wise place to put your money? So with week 1 right around the corner I’d like to take a closer look at just that… a corner.

When it comes to Denver Broncos cornerback Patrick Surtain II and the Defensive Rookie of the Year award, the blue-chip rookie may arrive at the intersection of Value Boulevard and Sensible Way. The good folks at SuperBook Sports have Surtain’s odds to win DROY set at 14-1. Where does that rank among other odds-on favorites? Outside of the top four but inside the top-10. I like that striking distance.

There are a few factors that led me to this season-long ticket in addition to the 14-1 odds. First and foremost, Surtain should see plenty of opportunity. Broncos head coach Vic Fangio is already on record saying he’s thrown more on the plate of his rookie cornerback than any other rookie in his career. Considering Fangio’s NFL coaching career started nearly four decades ago, that’s saying something. Surtain is also in the same cornerback room as Ronald Darby and Bryce Callahan, both of whom have serious injury histories. With Washington in 2020, Darby played 16 games for the first time in a career that started in 2015. He missed 23 games, the equivalent of nearly 1.5 seasons of football, in his first five years in the league.\

Callahan hasn’t been much sturdier. He’s never played more than 13 games in any of his five NFL seasons and in the last two years in Denver he’s played ten total games. Meanwhile, Surtain missed just one game during his three-year career at Alabama. He should be on the field a bunch early in the season, and quite possibly impossible to take off the field later in the season.

Another reason I’m taking a flyer on Patrick Surtain’s 14-1 SuperBook odds to win Defensive Rookie of the Year is that we have recent history of cornerbacks winning the award. Traditionally this hardware goes to linebacker and pass rushers. High tackle totals and sacks get accumulated more than a cornerbacks signature stat: interceptions. But in recent memory that trend was bucked like a Bronco. A young Marcus Peters in 2015 and wet behind the ears Marshon Lattimore in 2017 both bought home this award. What did both have in common? High interception totals. Peters hauled in a whopping eight passes intended for the other team, while Lattimore collected 5 such picks. What helps out defensive backs with making plays on the ball? A good pass rush! The Broncos, with a healthy Von Miller and Bradley Chubb rushing the QB, should have a renewed threat level to quarterbacks. This should only assist Surtain and the rest of the Broncos secondary snatching footballs the way Aqib Talib would your untucked chain.

And lastly, there’s an underrated factor that works in Patrick Surtain’s favor. Dude was the 9th overall pick in the 2021 draft. Why is draft status a factor here? Outside of it being an obvious indicator of expectation, it also serves another purpose. Everyone already knows his name. That matters. Don’t forget the Defensive Rookie of the Year is determined by votes. Votes from human beings. Surtain won’t have to spend the first half of the season on an awareness campaign. He’s expected to be great. So if he in fact plays great, it only validates his initial projection.

August 12, 2021

The Summer Olympics have ended, the calendar is rapidly approaching September, and soon the hallmarks of the fall season will surround us. For me, there is nothing that epitomizes fall more than NFL football on a Sunday. The cool crisp air, the grill, the games, the beer. It’s become such an important thread in the fabric of our country. The only problem we have right now is that it’s not actually here yet. Like my man Tom Petty once said, ‘the waiting is the hardest part.’ But that’s alright, because one of my other favorite windows of the NFL year is the one we’re currently in. Why, you ask? We get to predict regular season totals! You can’t play this game prior to the draft or free agency, and it’s not wise to do so in OTA’s or minicamp, either. It’s not until training camp that we start to see what these teams actually look like. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at the Broncos 2021 SuperBook win total!

            The Broncos have been designated a season win total of 9 by the good folks at SuperBook. Remember, for the first time since the late 1970’s, NFL fans will have to adjust their wiring of 16 games up to a 17-game schedule. Even with an extra game, 9 wins seems lofty for a Broncos team coming off a 5-11 season. In order for the ‘over’ to cash, Denver would have to be 10-7, which would double their wins year over year. Could that happen? Sure, it could. The NFL is the ultimate worst-to-first league. A recent example of meteoric rise is the Dallas Cowboys shift between the 2015 and 2016 seasons. In 2015 America’s Team was a 4-12 dumpster fire. That offseason Jerry Jones added a couple of rookies named Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliot and the very next season Dallas was 13-3. The same thing happened in Kansas City between 2012 and 2013. The Chiefs went from a putrid 2-14 season to a sterling 11-5. That’s a nine game improvement in one offseason! What did KC have in common with the turnaround in Dallas? They both hit the reset button at quarterback (oddly enough in both situations it was Matt Cassell getting the boot). More often than not, when a team is pulling a worst-to-first turnaround it’s due in large part to a change at the most important position in sports. This is where the Broncos lose me.

            Denver is having a 50/50 quarterback battle between Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater in training camp. I think I can fairly argue that this is the most uninspiring QB competition in recent memory. Lock had his shot to be ‘The Guy’ in Broncos Country in 2020 and responded by leading the league in interceptions and being dead last in completion percentage. This took place in a season where NFL quarterbacks set an all-time record for the least number of picks thrown in one season while simultaneously setting the single season record for highest completion percentage. Not ideal context for Lock. But those weren’t the only records set by QBs in 2020. Last season also saw the most touchdown passes thrown in NFL history. While Lock was struggling in Denver, Bridgewater threw 15 touchdowns for the 4-12 Carolina Panthers. What’s worse for Teddy Two Gloves is that his total of 15 TD passes is actually a career high. Woof.

            The hope for the Broncos is that the roster is so damn good (ranked #6 by Pro Football Focus, 10th from ESPN) that it overcomes their underwhelming QB situation. Optimistic fans in Broncos Country point to 2015 when the roster was so complete it helped carry Peyton Manning on his last legs all the way to a Super Bowl. The Broncos went 12-4 that season…but do you know how many games they won by 7 points or less? 11. Think about that razor’s edge margin for error. And that’s with one of the great 52-man teams in recent history. Are these 2021 Broncos that complete to the point you’ll put money on them winning 10 games to clear their SuperBook total of 9? I have my doubts.

            So here the Broncos are. Hope for Aaron Rodgers in 2021 has evaporated, and the DeShaun Watson pipe dream has cracked. The Broncos have the same coach in Vic Fangio who has a head coaching record of 12-20, and has yet to win a game in September (0-7). They have largely the same good but not great roster as last year, and a quarterback room that will likely get injected with new life next offseason. That brings us to our final question of what’s more likely: Denver overcomes lackluster quarterback play with a near flawless roster, while the third-year coaching staff suddenly becomes their best version and leads the Broncos to 10-7 and back to the playoff picture? OR a team that has a combined record of 23-41 the last four years and still needs a QB simply continues to lose more games than they win? I’ll take the latter. It doesn’t give me great pleasure saying it, but Denver under 9 wins for the 2021 season is the play here.

Here are the basic bets that you will find: 


This is the most straightforward type of bet; you are simply backing one of the teams to win. 


This is a bet on the combined total of points that the teams will score. The bet is presented as an Over/Under choice. You bet over if you think the total will be higher than that given in the market or under if you think it will be less. 


This type of bet adds extra points or goals to the underdog’s score. If you then back the underdog to win, and they do so once those additional points/goals have been taken into account, then you win your bet. 


This is a very popular type of bet that is used to cover multiple events. You have to pick the winners for at least two events, and if you get them all correct then it should result in a big win.

The Road to Sports Betting Regulation in Colorado

The legalization of sports betting in Colorado was no easy task and it took many years to complete. A full history of the state’s gambling laws over the last few decades and how they have changed would take far too long. What is important is that in the end, sportsbooks were able to start accepting bets on May 1, 2020. Here is a brief look at how this was achieved: 

· April 2019 – The House majority leader Alec Garnet introduced bill HB 1327, which would allow legal and regulated sports betting in the state. 

· May 2019 – HB 1327 is signed into law by Governor Polis, but it first needs to be put to a referendum vote in the November elections. 

· November 2019 – Known as Proposition DD, the Legalize Sports Betting with Tax Revenue for Water Projects measure is voted on by Coloradans and it just passes by 51.41% to 48.59%, paving the way for each of Colorado’s 33 casinos to apply for a license to offer both online and retail sports betting. 

· May 2020 – The first online sportsbooks go online in Colorado, making it the latest state to welcome legalized sports betting. 

· November 2020 – One year after passing Proposition DD, Colorado voters support Amendment 77, a measure that allowed casinos to increase the single bets limits for numerous table games, which is expected to give retail sports betting a boost across the state. 

Colorado Sports Betting Law

According to the law, sportsbooks are able to receive a license if they partner with a casino in the state, such as the Black Hawk Casino, where the new venue is set to open. The state will be collecting a tax of 10% on the net proceeds of sports betting, and that money is being used to fund implementation of the state water plan and other public purposes. From the total tax collected, after first repaying the general fund appropriation for start-up and initial operating costs, 6% is to be set aside each year to compensate the beneficiaries of revenues generated by limited gaming and other wagering activities for any losses attributable to competition from sports betting. 

The Colorado Division of Gaming oversees sports betting and it is in charge of implementing the regulations that govern the day-to-day activities of sports betting in Colorado. 

The most important aspect of all of this is that HB 1327 allowed for full mobile betting, making Colorado just the sixth state to welcome it. Because of this, sports betting is set to become big business in Colorado, especially as online sports betting is not legal in any of the neighboring states.
