Vegas considers Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs the AFC West favorites

New, comments

According to Vegas oddsmakers, the AFC West will come down to the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs again in 2016.

The Denver Broncos offseason hasn't been quite as brutal to Vegas as we thought last week when they dropped the nine win total on us. Despite the half game the Kansas City Chiefs have over the Broncos on those odds, Vegas still feels the AFC West is going to be a toss-up between those two teams.

Bovada odds to win the AFC West

Denver Broncos - 9/5

Kansas City Chiefs - 9/5

Oakland Raiders - 11/4

San Diego Chargers - 13/2

What the oddsmakers are predicting is a much tighter division race in 2016, with a real serious chance of the Broncos losing the division for the first time in a half decade.

As far as I am concerned, the AFC West is the Broncos' house until one of those other teams actually proves they can take it from them. So far, the team that has threatened the most has been those Chiefs.

It may come down to which team gets on a hot streak to 11-12 wins.
