Betting On AFC Online

The New England Patriots have owned the American Football Conference (AFC) since it was founded in 1970. The Pats — winners of five Super Bowl titles — have captured the AFC crown nine times, the most of any team in the conference. The AFC is made up of 16 teams and four divisions — East, North, South and West. Along with nine conference titles, the Patriots have dominated the AFC East, which also includes the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins and New York Jets. [+]

New England has won the division 18 times, including a seven-year run finishing first in the AFC East from 2009 to 2016.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Denver Broncos aren’t far off the Patriots for most AFC titles, as both clubs sit tied for second with eight championships. The Bills are next on the list with six as the club reached four consecutive Super Bowl finals, all of which they lost.

Tom Brady has been the starting quarterback for seven AFC Championship teams with the New England Patriots — more than any other QB. Bill Belichick has also coached the Pats to a record seven AFC titles.

Heading into the 2017 the American Football Conference had a total of 25 total Super Bowl victories — one less than the National Football Conference. The race will always be neck-and-neck, but AFC teams have won the Super Bowl in the 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2016 seasons.

AFC Online Betting Tips

The 2017-18 National Football League season may be filled with unexpected twists and turns as teams look to take down the defending champion New England Patriots.

Tom Brady and the Patriots are the favorites once again heading into the upcoming season as Bovada pegs the AFC powerhouse as +375 favorites to win it.

However, there are a handful of teams to closely watch, including the Pittsburgh Steelers who many NFL experts believe will be the frontrunners to win the Super Bowl in 2018. As +1200 favorites, bettors will jump on those odds prior to the start of the season as you can expect that line to move if the Steelers come out of the gates on a winning note.

Betting on the Patriots will be enticing for many, but the Steelers will be the team to beat in the AFC in 2017. Pittsburgh’s Big Three of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, running back Le’Veon Bell and wide receiver Antonio Brown will be the cornerstone of the Steelers’ success as the club looks to capture its first Super Bowl title since 2009.

Another AFC team that will make some noise in 2017 will be the revamped Oakland Raiders, who added another weapon in running back Marshawn Lynch. The Raiders are +1000 favorites to snap a long championship drought this season as the club looks to win its first Super Bowl since 1984.

The NFC is wide open, but there are at least three teams that can be considered frontrunners to reach the Super Bowl this season.

The Green Bay Packers head into the 2017 campaign as +800 favorites to win the title — a highly likely scenario with Aaron Rodgers leading the way. The Packers’ all-star quarterback has more weapons to work with, notably tight end Martellus Bennett, who is coming off a Super Bowl championship with the New England Patriots.

If proposition bets are what you’re looking for, Bovada has you covered as well.

With Pittsburgh’s offense prepared to reach new heights in 2017, it would be a great bet to put your money on Brown (+550) to record the most receiving touchdowns in the NFL this season. If you want to put your money on which player will win the regular-season MVP award, you can do that too. Tom Brady comes in as the +400 favorites, but watch for Aaron Rodgers (+500) and Derek Carr (+700) to give the five-time Super Bowl champion a run for his money.
