2023-24 AFC West Odds

  • Kansas City Chiefs -160
  • Los Angeles Chargers +325
  • Denver Broncos +500
  • Las Vegas Raiders +1100

The Kansas City Chiefs odds to win the division have been one of the most profitable bets in each of the last eight seasons. Those that would have started with $100 and bet on the Chiefs every year since 2016 and rolled over their winnings would have been up over $80,000 right now.

The Chiefs have finished with 10+ wins in nine of their last 10 seasons. With how dominant they’ve been, capitalize on what could be the Chiefs more profitable AFC West odds of the season before they shift.

Early odds on NFL betting sites following the official 2023 NFL schedule release  favor the Chiefs to beat the Detroit Lions (-7), Miami Dolphins (-5.5), and Cincinnati Bengals (-3.5).

Is There Really Any Other Competition in The AFC West?

In reality, no, no other team in the division can really compete with Kansas City at the division championship level. Dating back to their first division title in 2016, the Chiefs have gone 38-5 against the other three teams in the division.

They’ve won 14 straight games against the Denver Broncos in that span. The Chiefs are 11-3 against the Los Angeles Chargers, and 13-2 against the Las Vegas Raiders, proving their divisional dominance.

The Chargers are dealing with contract issues surrounding their superstar running back Austin Ekeler. If Ekeler ends up sitting out or getting traded, it could be a huge hole that the Chargers would need to fill and would certainly hurt their AFC West odds.

After the Denver Broncos massive letdown last season after they opened with +1600 Super Bowl odds and failed to make the playoffs, it’s hard to get behind them to win the division at +500.

The Raiders are at the bottom of the barrel in the division. They moved on from Derek Carr, traded away Darren Waller, and many might even argue that they made the wrong choice in the draft by selecting Tyree Wilson with the seventh pick.
