DENVER, CO (TheSpread) – The New England Patriots may be the Super Bowl champions, but one Denver Bronco doesn’t happen to think that should be the case.

On Thursday, while speaking to kids at a Denver-area football camp, Broncos’ wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders said that he think the Patriots shouldn’t be recognized as the Super Bowl champs after the events of “deflate-gate”.

“Yeah, yeah, I'm kind of mad. I don't think that they should be the Super Bowl champion this year,” Sanders said of New England. “You aren't supposed to cheat. Cheating is not good, especially when you've got guys who are working their butts off for 365 days out of the year and one person cheats – whether it helps them win the Super Bowl or not, they still cheated and shouldn't be a champion.”

According to the latest oddsmakers at GTBets, the Broncos are currently listed with 12/1 odds to win Super Bowl 50 next season, while the Patriots are listed with 9/1 odds to repeat. The Green Bay Packers are the current favorites at 6/1.

Sanders is coming off his first season with the Broncos where he had a breakout year, catching 101 passes for 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns. All of those stats were career-best marks for him. Sanders quickly became a favorite target of Peyton Manning last season and will likely have big numbers again this year as he hopes to lead Denver back to the Super Bowl.
