Denver Broncos have worst odds of making playoffs of all AFC West teams

New, comments

Though not by much and the Denver Broncos are at the tail end of a competitive AFC field in 2018.

According to OddsShark, the Denver Broncos are not a playoff team. In the AFC, their playoff odds rank 10 out of 16 teams. However, they also rank dead last in the AFC West.

The silver lining here is that the Broncos odds are fairly close to their AFC West rivals, which means the path to the 2018 playoffs for Denver may lie in how well they compete within their own division.

AFC West Playoff Odds

Los Angeles Chargers -145

Kansas City Chiefs +120

Oakland Raiders +165

Denver Broncos +275

Personally, I think the division is wide open. The Chiefs will likely take a step back with a gutted defense and a first year starter at quarterback. The Chargers run hot and cold, but they clearly have the talent to make a run for the division crown. And the Raiders are bringing back the 90s, baby.

A recent article from The Ringer agreed, ranking the Broncos third most likely team to move from worst to first in their division.
