Pick 6: Odds Broncos’ Von Miller named comeback player of the year, Stanley Cup winner and CU Buffs reaching Final Four – The Denver Post

Could we see Von Miller return to top form this year? One oddsmaker thinks he has a decent shot.

The Broncos star linebacker missed the 2020 NFL season after suffering a severe ankle injury just before the start of year. He has +1,600 odds — meaning a $100 bet would win $1,600 — to win the comeback player of the year award, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

However, he has stiff competition. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott — who missed 11 games last season — is the favorite at +175. He’s followed by Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow and running backs Saquon Barkley of the Giants and former Valor Christian standout Christian McCaffrey of the Panthers, who are tied for second at +600.

Former Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow also made the list at +3,300, tied at 14th among the players listed.

Here’s a look at some of the current odds in the world of sports.
