Betting On AFC Championship Odds
Betting on AFC Championship odds can be one of the most profitable bets you make all year. That’s because before the season starts you can expect to see some teams with +1000 odds that actually have a legitimate chance to win the AFC. Those odds get shorter or longer over the season, of course, based on how each team performs. In the NFL, anybody can beat anyone on any given Sunday, but certain teams are able to withstand the storm and come out on top. The two teams that made it to last year’s AFC Championship game are the clear favorites to reach the game again this season. But, they’ll have to get through their division just to make it to the playoffs.
BettingSuperBowl.com has a breakdown of all the divisional odds below so that you can make better decisions when betting on AFC Championship odds. When betting on these divisions, each group comes with its own fair share of competitors. There are a few where the best team of the four is way ahead of its competition, and there are other divisions where things could get dicey. Each team has its own share of internal adversity that they have to overcome as well which all affect their odds to win their division. Below, you’ll see a quick breakdown of each team’s current standing in the AFC.
Betting On The AFC Playoff Games
Betting on an AFC playoff game is a different style of betting from betting on a regular-season game. Bettors should know that after watching the Tennessee Titans, who were a wildcard team, knock out two of the strongest teams in the league in the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens last year. The 2020 AFC playoffs are shaping out to be up in the air once more as not only are the Chiefs and Ravens two of the strongest teams that they AFC has to offer, but returning players and major offseason moves have boosted teams odds as well like the Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Odds To Win The AFC Championship
The Tennessee Titans were the underdog and sixth seed longshot to win the AFC Title. They went into the game with odds of (+265) which was far better than their previous odds of winning the AFC title before they beat the Baltimore Ravens (+900). Kansas City Chiefs were always a favorite among sportsbooks. When it came to winning the AFC Title, they went into the game against the Titans as the favored team with odds of -330 to win the AFC. Their success can be attributed to their quarterback Patrick Mahomes. When he was out with an injury earlier in the season, the Chiefs odds of winning the AFC were +1300. Now, they are on their way to Super Bowl 54 with an AFC title and are favored to bring home a Super Bowl ring as 1-point favorites over the San Francisco 49ers.
AFC Championship Odds
Things should be smooth sailing for Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens to win the AFC North title as they have -215 odds. They are coming off a hot 14-2 season before Jackson was named the MVP. The Steelers might give them some trouble as they’re getting back Ben Roethlisberger under center but that’s not enough to push them over the top. The Browns have +550 odds to win the AFC North but don’t expect them to give Baltimore any trouble as nothing ever goes Cleveland’s way anyways. If they want to compete, they will need to put Baker Mayfield in check. As for the Bengals, don’t bother wasting your time here as they have +2000 odds and that’s being generous. They need to focus on their rebuild more than anything if they even want to be relevant again.
It's looking like it will be a close race for the AFC South title between the Colts (+150), Titans (+170) and Texans (+250). The Colts are coming out swinging next year with Philip Rivers under center and arrival of DeForest Buckner to lead the defense. As for the Titans, they decided to pay Ryan Tannehill over Derrick Henry… Let that sink in. Yes, Tanny had a breakout year but Henry was a man amongst men this past year. He will be out to prove that he is the leader of that team and that’s the way it should be. The Texans made quite possibly the worst offseason move in trading DeAndre Hopkins for David Johnson. This leaves Deshaun Watson with little receiving help, so play it safe and don’t hold your breath on the Texans. The Jaguars have pretty harsh odds at +1500. By no means are they contenders for the AFC South but they have some bright spots in them with Gardner Minshew, D.J. Chark and Leonard Fournette.
Betting on the AFC East in recent years was the easiest money for a sports bettor to make since the New England Patriots were dominating the Division. Now that Tom Brady has left the division, the Buffalo Bills are looking to move in as the new favorites. The Patriots still lead the odds at the division title at +115, but the Bills offseason moves to bring in Stefon Diggs has them threatening New England with +130 odds. It’ll be a two-team race between these two to win the division. As for the Dolphins (+850) and Jets (+800), they are nowhere near the level of play that Buffalo and New England are at. The Dolphins made the postseason last in 2016 but have gone downhill since but this year’s offseason could push them in the right direction. The Jets, on the other hand, are riding a 10-year playoff drought and unless they move away from Adam Gase at coach, they won’t see the playoffs for another 10 years.
The AFC West title is the Kansas City Chiefs to lose. Betting on them would be the easiest money you ever make as they have -500 odds. As for the rest of the dumpster fire, The Chargers and Broncos are have the same odds at +850. The Chargers have both the offense and defense to be elite. What they need to realize is that Tyrod Taylor is not the answer for them under center. As for the Broncos, they are a hard team to understand as they are very inconsistent. Bringing in Melvin Gordon could light a spark in the run game and Courtland Sutton has proven himself as a number one option at receiver but that all means nothing with none other than Drew Lock at quarterback. Finally, you might as well give your money to charity rather than put it on the Raiders who are at +1200. It does not matter if the team is in Oakland or Vegas, this team needs work and fast.
