Odds To Win The 2023 AFC Championship

Super Bowl Betting Odds

The AFC Championship is up for grabs in the 2022-23 season as the competition in the conference is at an all-time high. The Cincinnati Bengals proved that just last season after winning the AFC Championship with +8000 preseason odds to do so becoming the team with the longest odds in history to win the conference title. Aside from the Bengals, the Kansas City Chiefs are another team to watch out for as they have made it to the last four AFC Championship games having won two of them with +250 and +200 favored odds.

2023 AFC Championship Odds

AFC East Betting Odds

The second largest divisional favorite of them all, the Buffalo Bills will begin the 2022 season as outright favorites over the Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, and New York Jets to take home the AFC East champion title. Buffalo has won the previous two AFC East titles, but prior to that, it was a whole lot of the Patriots. Over the past 20 seasons, the distribution of AFC East crowns is Buffalo Bills(2), Miami Dolphins (1), New York Jets(1), and the New England Patriots(16).

AFC North Betting Odds

The only division in the entire NFL last season to not have either the favorite or co-favorite win the divisional crown was the AFC North. The Cincinnati Bengals had +2500 odds before the season, making them the only divisional winner with +200 odds or longer to win the division as well. Despite their success in 2021, Cincinnati's +210 odds heading in 2022 are only the second shortest in the division, behind the Baltimore Ravens and their +170 odds. Super Bowl oddsmakers predict this to be a three-team race as the Cleveland Browns enter the season with +230 odds. The questions surrounding the quarterback situation for the Pittsburgh Steelers have largely influenced their +1000 preseason odds to win the AFC North.

AFC South Betting Odds

Following the Tennessee Titan's loss of star receiver AJ Brown and the Indianapolis Colt’s acquisition of Pro Bowl quarterback Matt Ryan, Super Bowl sportsbooks have implemented the Colts as outright favorites over the rest of the AFC South this season. The Jacksonville Jaguars hired Doug Pederson this offseason while the Houston Texans promoted Lovie Smith to Head Coach this past offseason, with oddsmakers crediting the recent hires and young quarterbacks as large influences towards their lengthy AFC South odds.

AFC West Betting Odds

Considered by many to be the best division in football, the AFC West appears stocked full of elite teams heading into the 2022 season. The only division in which all four teams have odds +650 or shorter to win, preseason odds are giving the Los Angeles Chargers, Denver Broncos, and Las Vegas Raiders an excellent opportunity to wrestle the division away from the Kansas City Chiefs who have won it six straight seasons.
