Denver Broncos still the favorite to win AFC West

Despite sharing the same 4-1 record as the Oakland Raiders, Vegas still thinks the AFC West is the Denver Broncos to lose.

Atlanta Falcons v Denver Broncos Photo by Justin Edmonds/Getty Images updated their division odds today and despite the bad loss to the Atlanta Falcons, the Denver Broncos are still 4-1 and favorite nicely over the Oakland Raiders to win the AFC West.

AFC West Division Odds - Week 6

The Raiders needed a laughable botched snap to beat the Chargers at home this past week, which is the third such last second win Oakland has needed to get to 4-1. This suggests they are a bit of a fraud.

Despite the rough start to 2016, oddsmakers have not totally lost faith in the Chiefs who are not that far behind the Raiders here. Denver hits the road to face a dangerous San Diego squad this Thursday night who has lost almost all of their games in the final minutes. A win there would likely extend this gap even more despite what the other teams do on Sunday.

Feel free to use this as a little ammunition for the crazed Raider fans out there who haven’t tasted so much success since the first George W. Bush presidential term.
