Chiefs are the heaviest favorite to win their division in the NFL

Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs have seen the AFC West competition around them make drastic changes to their respective rosters, yet that hasn’t persuaded those at Caesars Sportsbook to take a step back on its confidence in Kansas City winning the division crown again in 2020.

Kansas City is opening the year at -425 to win the AFC West, meaning that you would need to bet $425 in order to make another $100 on their victory.

Last year, Kansas City weathered the storm of losing Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes during the regular season for two games, and still managed to claim the division crown. They would go on to find their groove in the postseason and claim the Super Bowl trophy and are now set to bring back virtually every offensive weapon from last year’s installment.

The Los Angeles Chargers moved on from Philip Rivers as their quarterback. The Las Vegas Raiders will be playing in a new city and looking for just the franchise’s second season above .500 since 2002. The Denver Broncos added numerous offensive weapons thus far in the off-season, but have questions aplenty at the quarterback position. All three teams finished below .500 last year and failed to win a game against Kansas City.

For those looking to go contrarian, both Denver and Las Vegas are +1000 to win the AFC West, meaning that a $100 bet would net an additional $1,000. The Chargers find themselves in the middle ground at +600 but also needing to overcome Kansas City in order to claim its first division title since 2009.
