Bodog AFC Future Odds – 2010 Picks

2010 AFC Preview- Conference Odds and Predictions

With the 2010 NFL regular season set to kick-off in a couple of months, it is time to take a look at each team’s current odds to win their conference as we begin to put the pieces together to try and figure out which two teams will meet next February in Super Bowl XLV.

Today we will take a look at each team in the AFC’s future odds from Bodog.com to win the conference along with a brief preview of each division.

AFC EAST

New York Jets 11-2 New England Patriots 6-1 Miami Dolphins 16-1 Buffalo Bills 50-1

After making it all the way the to the AFC Championship game last season the Jets appear to have the slight edge over the Patriots in the East this season. They should once again have a top notch defense and running game but the big key will be the continued development of QB Mark Sanchez as he enters his second season in the NFL.

Tom Brady will be almost two years removed from major knee surgery and back to his old self. He should have WR Wes Welker back by opening day and at least one more season with Randy Moss.

The main questions for New England remain on the defensive side of the ball. Miami still has enough talent to compete for a wildcard spot but will most likely once again fall short.

Buffalo remains in a rebuilding stage with no major progress made this offseason to keep them out of the basement in the East in 2010.

Washington, with McNabb and possibly Westbrook will be better but not good enough to take the East

AFC SOUTH

Indianapolis Colts 4-1 Houston Texans 13-1 Tennessee Titans 15-1 Jacksonville Jaguars 35-1

As long as QB Peyton Manning remains healthy the Colts will be the perennial favorite in the South for at least a few more seasons.

With no major losses in personnel, Indy is locked and loaded for another Super Bowl run. 2010 could be the turning point for the Texans after finally finishing over .500 last year.

Their high powered offense should carry them to a wildcard spot but that is about as far as it will go. In Tennessee the pressure all falls back on the shoulders of QB Vince Young. Fortunately he has RB Chris Johnson to help shoulder the load. A strong start by the Titans could throw them back in the mix with Houston in a battle for second place.

After a questionable draft, Jacksonville appears headed for another step backwards in 2010.

AFC NORTH

Baltimore Ravens 8-1 Pittsburgh Steelers 10-1 Cincinnati Bengals 16-1 Cleveland Browns 40-1

With major question marks surrounding all three other teams, Baltimore is in prime position to run away with the North in 2010.

They have a wealth of talent on both sides of the ball and third year QB Joe Flacco appears ready to take the next step to becoming one of the premier players in the league. Pittsburgh’s main problem is not having QB Ben Roethlisberger for the first six games; it is getting him back in week seven. Team chemistry could take a beating in light of this whole mess.

Cincinnati did little to address their offensive woes and will most likely take a step back to reality in 2010.

Mike Holmgren’s rebuilding program in Cleveland will probably take another season before it starts to yield some positive results.

AFC WEST

San Diego 11-2 Denver Broncos 25-1 Oakland Raiders 45-1 Kansas City Chiefs 50-1

San Diego should once again cruise to the West division title as long as contract squabbles with a few of their top players does not become a major distraction. This team is rapidly becoming old, but with QB Philip Rivers still at the helm they have enough talent to make one more championship run. If Josh McDaniels can get his team to play a full 16 game schedule, Denver should be able to contend for a wildcard spot in the playoffs.

Oakland may have finally made enough solid offseason moves to have a legitimate shot at a .500 season. Much of this will depend on the play of their new starting quarterback; Jason Campbell.

Kansas City seems destined to bring up the rear in the West for at least one more season, but this team continues to add quality talent and should be able to win more than four games in 2010.
