2010 AFC West: Chargers and Broncos Favored in NFL Odds
The San Diego Chargers -325 are the overwhelming NFL betting favorites at online sportsbooks to win the division title in 2010 AFC West odds. The Chargers were the division winners of the past two seasons but are fortunate in that it is the weakest division by far in pro football. The Denver Broncos were a distant second choice at +600 with the Oakland Raiders at +750 and the Kansas City Chiefs at +700 in NFL betting odds. San Diego was an impressive 13-3 straight up last year which made some handicappers be fooled into thinking that Norv Turner was a good coach.
Turner provided remedial training to everyone why he is considered one of the worst head coaches in the NFL as the Chargers lost their playoff game to the New York Jets 14-17 as 7.5-point home NFL betting favorites and Turner was totally befuddled by his counterpart Rex Ryan. On the positive quarterback Philip Rivers is one of the best and the defense showed improvement. While the Chargers are the clear chalk in the division Turner is a dangerous coach to put faith in as San Diego covered just 8 games last year. The Broncos will break in Tim Tebow as quarterback after finishing 8-8 straight up last year.
The Broncos also had an epic 2-8 collapse after a 6-0 start in NFL betting odds last season that tricked some in to believing Josh McDaniels was another Bill Belichick as coach. “Mc-Hoodie” had several run-ins with key players last year which re-opened questions as to his maturity and ability to handle men. Oakland is finally rid of JaMarcus Russell, who joins Ryan Leaf as one of the biggest quarterback busts in NFL history. Kansas City may surprise handicappers this year as Charlie Weiss comes over from Notre Dame to coordinate the offense and Matt Cassel returns at quarterback after learning his new team.
