NFL Handicapping Insight
Perennial favorite New England is once again perched at the top of Bovada’s NFL futures odds list to win the AFC but they aren’t the only team in the conference and it should be some heavy competition to try to get to the Super Bowl.
The following is a closer look the Top 5 contenders to win the AFC this season along with the betting odds for the rest of teams in this conference.
2018 AFC Championship Predictions: New England Patriots Odds +190
The Patriots have owned the top of this futures list for the past several seasons and coming into this season the reigning Super Bowl Champions it should be no surprise to see them on top of the list again.
They won the AFC with Tom Brady sitting the first four games last year, and they have him for a full season this year.
The only problem that the Patriots have coming into this season is that they are the favorites and they are going to get everyone’s best shot in every game.
But as long as Tom Brady is the quarterback for the Patriots they will have as good of shot as anyone to win the conference year in and year out.
2018 AFC Championship Predictions: Pittsburgh Steelers Odds 700
Last season before the season a lot of people expected the Pittsburgh Steelers would be the team representing the AFC in the Super Bowl but they lost to the Steelers 36-17 in the AFC Championship game.
After rumors swirled that Ben Roethlisberger would retire during the off-season it appears he will be back and try to lead the boys to the Super Bowl.
The big concern I have with the Steelers this year is Big Ben and his injuries. The last few years he has missed a few games with injuries but he has always been able to come back. If he gets hurt and they have to go to a backup, the Steelers are going to be in a lot of trouble.
2018 AFC Championship Predictions: Oakland Raiders Odds +700
The Oakland Raiders come into this season tied with the Steelers for the second best odds to win the AFC this year. A lot of Raiders fans feel like they could have gone to the Super Bowl last year if they would have had Derek Carr healthy for the playoffs, But he wasn’t and they were bounced early.
The Raiders have most of their key pieces back from last year and they added Marshawn Lynch, who should be a great addition in the run game.
I don’t know if this team will be able to get by Tom Brady and the Patriots, but I think they are a better value at +700 then the Steelers are.
2018 AFC Championship Predictions: Denver Broncos Odds +900
The Denver Broncos have most of the keys in place to make it back to the AFC Championship game, but they have one big question and that is at the quarterback position.
If they can get a a quarterback in place that can preform they have a good chance with the remarkable defense, but if they can’t that will once again be their downfall.
2018 AFC Championship Predictions: Houston Texans +900
The Houston Texans like the Denver Broncos are a solid quarterback away from competing for this league, and they hope they have that in Deshaun Watson.
If he can just be average, and be a good manager the Texans have the defense, and the rest of the offensive weapons to pull off the big upset and win the Conference at +900.
