Betting On AFC West Online

Arguably the toughest division in football, the AFC West was founded in 1960 and remains one of the most competitive in the NFL. Comprised of four teams — Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers (formerly based in San Diego) — the AFC West has been represented in the Super Bowl 16 times, as of 2017. The Broncos and Raiders are tied for most Super Bowl crowns with three apiece. The Chiefs have one Super Bowl title while the Chargers made their only appearance in the final in 1995, losing to the 49ers. [+]

The Broncos, who last won the Super Bowl in 2015, along with the Chargers and Raiders have all won 15 division crowns heading into the 2017 campaign. The Broncos have eight AFC Conference championships under their belt as well. The Raiders are not far behind with four AFC Conference crowns, followed by the Chiefs with two.

The division is often cited as one of NFL’s toughest divisions because of the home-field advantages. Sports Authority Field at Mile High (Denver), Arrowhead Stadium (Kansas City), StubHub Center (Los Angeles) and Alameda County Coliseum (Oakland) are among the toughest places to play in the NFL.

As always, be sure to check back frequently until you actually place your bet. The lines for NFL games move far more often than any other sport because of how much time separates every contest.

AFC West Online Betting Tips

Three of the four teams in the AFC West will be gunning for another division crown heading into the 2017 season.

The Oakland Raiders drastically improved their roster with the addition of Super Bowl champion running back Marshawn Lynch — also known as beast mode. The Raiders were able to lure Lynch out of retirement after one season away from the NFL. Lynch’s best season came in 2014 when he ran for more than 1,300 yards and scored 13 touchdowns in the process.

Heading into the 2017 season, the Raiders had the third-best odds to win the Super Bowl as Bovada.lv pegged Oakland as a +1200 favorite, behind only the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers. With a healthy Derek Carr returning as the Raiders’ No. 1 pivot, expect Oakland to be at the top of the division and even contending for and AFC Championship for many years to come.

Never count out the Denver Broncos, who in 2015 relied on its world-class defense to win the Super Bowl. The Broncos finished fourth in overall defense during the 2016 season, holding opponents to 316.1 yards per game. Denver also boasts one of the best secondary units in the NFL as it finished first in passing yards against in 2016 with an average of 185.8.

The Broncos may not be one of the top favorites to win it all in 2017, taking Denver at +2200 prior to the start of the season may not be such a bad move.

The Chiefs topped the AFC West in 2016 with a 12-4 record and the club is capable to repeat that success moving forward. Much like the Broncos, the Chiefs rely heavily on their strong defense to win games as the team allowed the third fewest total points against in the AFC, only behind Denver and New England.
