AFC West Betting Odds 2022

Division Winner And Betting Props

1

The AFC West is poised to be the best division in football. Despite a myriad of movers – particularly at wide receiver– AFC West odds suggest this season will be as competitive as ever. The Kansas City Chiefs seek their seventh straight division crown while the Los Angeles Chargers are looking for their first since 2009. The division gets more interesting as the Denver Broncos, now headed by Russell Wilson, are the biggest liability for Super Bowl 57 at multiple books; even the Las Vegas Raiders are interesting in their own right.

Below, we’ll look at the landscape of the AFC West for the 2022 NFL season. You’ll find odds for every team, an outlook for the division, previous champions, and more.

2022 AFC West outlook and predictions

The Chiefs are leading the field in the AFC West despite suffering their first loss of the season at Indianapolis. KC earned a vital head-to-head win over the Chargers in Week 2 and the Bolts are in trouble now that Justin Herbert appears to be significantly hampered by an injury to his rib cartilage. 

The Broncos have moved into second place after an uninspiring 2-1 start that has included some very close calls at home against the Texans and 49ers. Their offense has struggled with Russell Wilson and new HC Nathaniel Hackett working out some kinks. 

The Raiders are off to an 0-3 start after blowing a huge lead to the Cardinals in Week 2 and failing to complete a comeback in Tennessee in Week 3. They’ll get another shot to climb the division standings when they host the Broncos in Week 4.

How to bet on NFL division winners

The most important aspect to betting NFL futures (and any bet, at that) is line shopping. Here at TheLines, we do the digging for you and offer lines from dozens of books so you get the best price.

For example, a successful $100 bet on the Chargers +250 would yield $250 in winnings for a total $350 payout. If you were to have settled on Chargers +220 at another book would yield $220 in winnings– a $30 difference. Longer odds (higher numbers) have higher payouts but shorter odds suggest a higher win probability.
