AFC Championship Odds
The AFC Playoffs seem to be down to three key teams this year. Here is a look at the odds to win the AFC Championship.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots are co-favorites at +200 to win the AFC title. Other odds are the Pittsburgh Steelers (+320), the Cincinnati Bengals (+1000), the Kansas City Chiefs (+1000) and the Houston Texans (+4000).
The Broncos (12-4) have the top seed in the AFC playoffs thanks to a top-level defense. Denver is just 2-2 in its last four games, but the team seems to be turning the ball back to Peyton Manning for the playoffs.
The Patriots (12-4) are the No. 2 seed in the AFC. New England is just 2-4 in its last six games, including a 20-10 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. The Patriots have a lot of injuries that have caused them to look very beatable lately.
The Steelers (10-6) snuck into the playoffs thanks to a loss by the Jets on Sunday. Pittsburgh has won four of its last five, with three of those four wins by 13 points or more. Pittsburgh heads to Cincinnati (12-4) for the first round. The Bengals won the AFC North, but are playing without Andy Dalton, who broke his thumb a few weeks back.
The Chiefs (11-5) are the hottest team in football right now, having won 10 straight entering the playoffs. They hit the road to face the Texans (9-7) who made the playoffs by winning the AFC South. Houston ended the season on a three-game winning streak.
