AFC West Divisional Odds - 2017 NFL Betting Report
AFC West Divisional Odds 2017 - AFC Offense/Defense Football Report
The AFC West was the most competitive division in football last season. Oakland and Kansas City finished the season tied atop the division at 12-4 and even third-place Denver came close to making the playoffs at 9-7. The Chargers had a losing record, but were much better than their final results indicated. This division will be competitive again and is one of two divisions in the league where it feels like anyone has a chance to win.
Moving companies have been busy in this division. San Diego moved to Los Angeles in the offseason and will be moving to a new stadium again three years from now. Meanwhile, Oakland is all set to move to Las Vegas in 2020.
Regression is going to hit the Oakland Raiders hard. The Raiders had a dream season before Derek Carr went down with an injury and that cost them the division and a shot at a first-round bye. Even with the addition of Marshawn Lynch this team overachieved and will fall back down to Earth a bit.
Pat Mahomes was taken with the future in mind, but can he be the present too? Alex Smith is an above average quarterback at his best, but nothing more. It will be interesting to see how much action Mahomes will see this season, especially with the defense ready to compete for a title now. The defense is loaded with talent and could drag this team to .500 even with subpar quarterback play.
Speaking of quarterback situations, Denver will enter training camp with a true quarterback battle on its hands. Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch both had some success last year but neither did enough to effectively win the job. Whichever quarterbacks ends up center will have some talented wide receivers to throw to and a great defense behind him.
The Chargers are going to have to play in the smallest stadium in the league, but that could be an advantage. It will be tough for opposing fans to get tickets and if the team can create a soccer-type atmosphere, road teams may have a hard time dealing with the noise in such a quaint setting. Los Angeles was the opposite of Oakland last season. The Chargers were extremely unlucky and should see a boost in their fortunes this year.

2017 AFC West Sports Betting Preview
The looming question for the Denver Broncos heading into the 2017 season revolves around the quarterback position. Denver has one of the few true quarterback battles in the NFL that means something. The Broncos won the Super Bowl two seasons ago despite poor quarterback play and won nine games last year even though two inexperienced quarterbacks shared the duties. Whether Paxton Lynch or Trevor Siemian gets the job, the team will be a playoff contender provided that both don’t take a step back. Continue
The clock has officially started on the Alex Smith era in Kansas City. The Chiefs traded up to select Pat Mahomes in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft and it’s only a matter of time before he gets a shot under center. Smith hasn’t been bad during his time in Kansas City, but the Chiefs believe that they need something more if they want to make the next step. They will get just that with Mahomes, who lit up Big 12 defenses with impunity. Continue
The Oakland Raiders were the team that had gone the longest without posting a winning record prior to last year, but it’s funny how fast things change. Oakland has gone from being considered an also-ran to one of the favorites in the AFC after finishing 12-4 under Jack Del Rio. The season ended with a thud after an injury to Derek Carr rendered this team ineffective in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs, but there is plenty of hope headlining into 2017. Continue
Whether the city wanted them or not, owner Dean Spanos decided to pick up the San Diego Chargers and move the team to Los Angeles. The Chargers didn’t have a fancy new stadium deal to goad them into moving and will have to play in an MLS stadium out in Carson for the next three seasons. With a capacity of only 27,000, it will be the smallest stadium in the NFL and playing there will relegate the Chargers to second-team status in the City of Angels. Continue
