Breaking down odds to win AFC West in 2020
It may be that the Chiefs are THAT good or it may be that the rest of the division is THAT medicore. With that in mind, let’s break down divisional odds in the Kansas City Chief-owned AFC West at BetRivers Sportsbook.
Kansas City Chiefs (-455)
You’re not going to make much money betting on the defending Super Bowl champions to win a so-so division in 2019, but it’s also the closest thing there is to a lock in this NFL-betting realm. The Chiefs won the West by a five-game margin in 2019, and that was despite the fact superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes wasn’t healthy for much of the year. Mahomes is healthy now, the roster looks extremely strong despite a few losses, and Kansas City should again dominate in 2020.
Los Angeles Chargers (+800)
In another division, the talented Chargers would definitely be worth it at +800. But with Philip Rivers gone, rookie quarterback Justin Herbert likely to require time for marination after a limited initial NFL offseason and star safety Derwin James out for the season due to a knee injury, it’s not likely in the cards for the Bolts.
