According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Broncos are 4/11 favorites to win the AFC West Division in 2014. The Chiefs have the next-best odds at 5/1 while the Chargers are 11/2 and the Raiders are the clear underdog at 18/1. Denver won the division a year ago with a 13-3 record while Kansas City (11-5) and San Diego (9-7) also went to the playoffs from the AFC West. The Raiders, meanwhile, finished with a 4-12 record and picked in the top 5 of the NFL draft.

The Broncos were aggressive in free agency, signing DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib and T.J. Ward to pick contracts. They did lose Eric Decker, Knowshon Moreno and Wesley Woodyard, but this is still one of the most talented rosters in the league. In the draft, Denver selected cornerback Bradley Roby, Indiana receiver Cody Latimer and Michigan offensive tackle Michael Schofield, among others.

The Chiefs weren’t as busy as the Broncos in free agency but they did add defensive tackle Vance Walker, offensive tackle Jeff Linkenbach and corner Chris Owens. They took a hit, however, losing Branden Albert, Geoff Schwartz and Jon Asamoah along the offensive line, as well as Tyson Jackson and Kendrick Lewis on defense. In the draft the Chiefs used their first three picks on Dee Ford, Phillip Gaines and De’Anthony Thomas, respectively.

The Chargers mostly went with roster depth in free agency, adding Donald Brown, Kavell Conner and Brandon Ghee, as well as backup quarterback Kellen Clemens. But they also didn’t lose much, as Charlie Whitehurst, Lavelle Hawkins and Cam Thomas signed elsewhere. The team added Jason Verrett, Jeremiah Attaochu and Chris Watt in the draft.

Finally, the Raiders signed Maurice Jones-Drew, James Jones, Austin Howard, Donald Penn, Justin Tuck, LaMarr Woodley, Tarell Brown and Carlos Rogers in free agency to replace Jacoby Ford, Jared Veldheer, Vance Walker, Lamarr Houston and Rashad Jennings. Oakland used its first round pick on Khalil Mack, its second-round pick on Derek Carr, and its third-round pick in Gabe Jackson.
