Just when you think AFC West is at its peak, one of their teams makes a shocking move. This offseason was Denver’s turn. The Broncos traded for nine-time Pro Bowler and Super Bowl champ Russell Wilson. After several years of being vice president of football ops, legend John Elway seems to have finally landed a star at the QB position.

The road to the division title will not be easy for the new-look Broncos (+260). Standing in their way will be six-time defending AFC North winners, Kansas City. The Chiefs (+160) are slight favorites to defend their division title.

The Chiefs’ offseason was highlighted by the departure of Patrick Mahomes’ favorite target, Tyreek Hill. Though there’s no replacing the speed and playmaking of Hill; the Chiefs bolstered their WR core by adding Marquez Valdes-Scantling and JuJu Smith-Schuster.

The up-and-coming Chargers (+250) are the next Challenger to the Chiefs and Broncos. With new coach Brandon Staley, L.A. seemed to have a renewed energy that they can build off for 2022. In his third year under center, many expect rising star Justin Herbert to take the next step in his NFL progression. With their relationship seemingly clicking, Herbert and Staley are poised to contend for the top spot in the AFC West in 2022.

2022 AFC West Champion Prediction: Chiefs | +160 at BetMGM

As six-time defending division champs, and with Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid returning for their sixth season together, I have the Chiefs valued much higher to win the division.

The loss of Tyreek Hill seems to be scaring oddsmakers into thinking there will be a new champ in the AFC West top spot, but, I believe this is the best value we’ll see all season. Once the Chiefs get on one of their signature hot streaks, the line will drop sharply in their favor.

The Challenger: Broncos | +260 at BetMGM

If there’s one QB I trust to learn a brand new system and make an immediate impact, it’s Russell Wilson. His experience and football IQ are exactly what the Broncos need to take them over the top. Denver made a huge investment in their new QB this week when they signed Wilson to a five-year $245 million deal. The deal keeps the veteran QB in Denver until he’s 40. There will be plenty of pressure on Denver to start seeing a return on that investment right away.

With all the talent stockpiled in the AFC West, these teams tend to beat each other up. If the Broncos can win all the games they’re expected to win, they may find themselves in a Week 17 matchup against the Chiefs for the division title.
