NFL Season Preview Part Three Team Futures Bets – NFC West And AFC West

Welcome to our third in a four part series of articles in which we are looking at some of the best value futures markets bets for each of the 32 teams in the NFL. All odds in this article were taken from BetRivers PA and were correct at the time of writing.

The season gets underway on the 9th September and teams will see the total number of games they play increase by one to 17 in this new season. With the impact of the NFL Draft, as well as a busy free agency, it promises to be an intriguing season ahead.

In this penultimate article, we are going to be taking a look at the best futures bets available for teams in both the NFC West and AFC West divisions.

AFC West – Team Futures Bets

  • Kansas City Chiefs

Last Season – 14-2 (playoffs)

Key Additions – Joe Thuney (G), Kyle Long (G), Orlando Brown Jr. (T), Nick Bolton (LB), Creed Humphrey (C), Cornell Powell (WR), Joshua Kaindoh (DE), Mike Hughes (CB), Blake Bell (TE), Elijah Maguire (RB), Jarran Reed (DT), Darius Shepherd (WR), Wyatt Miller (OL), Jerick McKinnon (RB)

Key Losses – Damien Williams (RB), Eric Fisher (LT), Mitchell Schwartz (RT), Tajae Sharpe (WR), Bashaud Breeland (CB), Mike Pennel (DT), Anthony Sherman (FB)

Divisional Odds – -335

Superbowl Odds – +500 (favorites)

Our BetRivers Specials Tips

  • To Make The Playoffs? – Yes -1000
  • Number of Games Won In the Regular Season – Over 12.5 +123
  • To have a 17-0 record – No -10000

The Chifes are the bookies favorites to win the Super Bowl next season and it is not hard to see why. They have kept the key ingredients of their team together once again this season and have made some smart additions, especially on the offensive line to offer Mahomes more protection. They will be the team to beat in the AFC West and the AFC in general once again this season.

  • Los Angeles Chargers

Last Season – 7-9

Key Additions – Chase Daniel (QB), Kyler Fackrell (LB), Ryan Smith (DB), Jared Cook (TE), Oday Aboushi (OG), Matt Feiler (OG), Corey Linsley (C), Christian Covington (DT), Asanta Samuel Jr (DB), Mark Webb ( DB), Larry Rountree (RB), Nick Niemann (LB), Brenden Hames (OT), Austin Proehl (WR), Chris Rumph (DE),

Superbowl Odds – +3300

  • To Make The Playoffs? – Yes +137
  • Number of Games Won In the Regular Season – Over 9 -110

If there is going to be one team to emerge from this division as the threat to the Chiefs, then for me it will be the Chargers. After a superb Rookie season Justin Herbert now has much better protection, a very solid tight end addition in Jared Cook was a smart move while Austin Proehl is a good pick up at receiver. I fancy the Chargers to win at least 10 games this season and that should be enough to make the playoffs, although it could be close.

  • Denver Broncos

Last Season – 5-11

Key Additions – Patrick Surtain (DE), Damion Willis (WR), Cody Conway (OT), Case Cookus (QB), Pita Taumoepenu (DE), Jamar Johnson (DB), Marquiss Spencer (DE), Caden Sterns (DB), Kary Vincent (DB), Seth Williams (WR), Bobby Massie (OT), Ryan Pope (OT), Eric Saubert (TE), Teddy Bridgewater (QB), Kyle Fuller (DB)

Key Losses – Jeremy Cox (RB), Jeff Driskell (QB), Nick Vannet (TE)

Divisional Odds – +600

Superbowl Odds – +2500

Our BetRivers Specials Tips

  • To Make The Playoffs? – No -180
  • Number of Games Won In the Regular Season – Under 8.5 +110

The Broncos are a fashionable pick for many punters at the moment who see them as potentially being the main challengers to the Chiefs in this division. I am not so sure to be honest as I can’t see any of the signings they have made offering them a massive upgrade over what they had. Sure they have some talented players, but they hardly shone last season and I can’t see them doing so next either.

  • Las Vegas Raiders

Last Season 8-8

Key Additions – John Brown (WR), Quinton Jefferson (DT), Yannick Ngakoue (DE), Soloman Thomas (DT), Matt Dickerson (DE), Kenyan Drake (RB), Darius Philon (DT), Richie Incognito (OG), Nick Martin (C), Willie Snead (WR), Karl Joseph (DB), Alex Leatherwood (OT)

Key Losses – Trenton Brown (OT), Rodney Hudson (C), Gabe Jackson (OG), Kyle Sloter (QB), Maurice Hurst (DT), Arden Kay (DE)

Divisional Odds – +1800

Superbowl Odds – +7000

Our BetRivers Specials Tips

  • To Make The Playoffs? – No -455
  • Number of Games Won In the Regular Season – Under 7 (-106)

John Gruden usually starts to work his magic on a team around now but I can’t quite see how the Raiders are going to make an impact beyond what they did last season. They have signed some good players and have a decent quarterback in Derek Carr, but they overreached in the draft and I’m not sure they have made the improvements needed to be a real contender in this division as yet.

NFC West – Team Futures Bets

  • Seattle Seahawks

Last Season – 12-4 (playoffs)

Key Additions – Gabe Jackson (OG), Ahkello Witherspoon (DB), Gerald Everett (TE), Kerry Hyder (DE), Benson Mayow (DE), Cedric Ogbuehi (OT), Carlos Dunlap (DE), Al Woods (DT), Aldon Smith (DE), Pierre Desir (DB), Robert Nkemdiche (DT), Nate Evans (LB), Saivion Smith (DB), Tre Brown (DB), Cam Sutton (TE), Aaron Donkor (DL)

Key Losses – Nick Guggermos (TE), Ladarius Wiley (DB)

Divisional Odds – +275

Superbowl Odds – +2500

Our BetRivers Specials Tips

  • To Make The Playoffs? – No – +104
  • Number of Games Won In the Regular Season – Under 9.5 +115

I think the other three teams in this division have made some very key signings and made significant upgrades on their team,, while the Seahawks, who won this division last season, seem to have stood still a little. I’m not convinced that this team has the heart it once did and as such, I think they may be the story in the NFC West, simply because of how their performance levels drop off from last season.

  • Los Angeles Rams

Last Season – 10-6 (playoffs)

Key Additions – Otis Anderson (RB), Jacob Harris (WR), Bobby Brown (DT), Dayan Lake (DB), Robert

[email protected] — from the Washington Football Team vs. Los Angeles Rams at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland. October 11, 2020 (All-Pro Reels Photography)

Rochell (DB), Kareem Orr (DB), Chatarius Atwell (WR), Earnest Brown (DE), Jake Funk (RB), Chris Garrett (LB), Bennett Skowronek (WR), Max Pircher (OT), Matt Orzech (LS), John Daka (DE), Corey Bojorquez (P), DeSean Jackson (WR), Matt Stafford (QB)

Key Losses – Colin Holba (LS), Tyrique McGhee (DB), Jared Goff (QB), Michael Brockers (DE)

Divisional Odds – +190

Superbowl Odds – +1300

Our BetRivers Specials Tips

  • To Make The Playoffs? – Yes -195
  • Number of Games Won In the Regular Season – Over 10.5 +115

Matt Stafford signing was the big deal of the summer and he immediately offers a huge upgrade to that Rams offense. Add DeSean Jackson as a legitimate deep threat and the Rams have an offense to make them real contenders in this division. This is a stacked division so they won’t win 14 or 15 games, but I do feel they have enough quality to come top of this division.

  • San Francisco 49ers

Last Season – 6-10

Key Additions – Tony Jefferson (DB), Daniel Helm (TE), Samson Ebukam (LB), Alex Mack (C), Trent Sherfield (WR), K’Waun Williams (DB), Nate Gerry (LB), Mohammed Sanu (WR), Nate Sudfield (QB), Wayne Gallman (RB), Maurice Hurst (DT), Arden Kay (DE), Mycole Pruitt (TE)

Key Losses – Chris Thompson (WR), Joshia Coatney (DT), Adonis Alexander (DB), Austin Walter (RB), Austin Proehl (WR), Josh Johnson (QB), Daniel Helm (TE)

Divisional Odds – +185

Superbowl Odds – +1400

Our BetRivers Specials Tips

  • To Make The Playoffs? – Yes +144
  • Number of Games Won In the Regular Season – Under 10.5 -130

There does seem to be a very large 49ers bandwagon rolling at the moment. It is almost as if they are coming into this season off the back of their 2019 Super Bowl loss to the Chiefs. I am not convinced the 49ers are the real deal just yet, though I do think they have made enough quality changes to get themselves into the post-season. Just not as divisional winners.

  • Arizona Cardinals

Last Season – 8-8

Key Additions – Rodney Hudson (C), A.J.Green (WR), Matt Prater (K), Brian Winters (OG), Malcolm Butler (DB), Colt McCoy (QB), Shawn Williams (DB), James Conner (RB), J.J.Watt (DE), Zaven Collins (LB), Rondale Moore (WR)

Key Losses – Mason Cole (C), Brett Maher (K)

Divisional Odds – +600

Superbowl Odds – +3300

Our BetRivers Specials Tips

  • To Make The Playoffs? – No (-240)
  • Number of Games Won In the Regular Season – Under 8 (-134)

In Chandler Jones and JJ Watt, the Cardinals may have the best 1-2 pass rush in the NFL right now, and with Kyler Murray maturing and now having A.J.Green as a target, they should be a better team this season.  The problem for the Cards is that I expect every team in the NFC West to be better next season and while I think they push the 49ers and Seahawks very close, they will just miss out on the playoffs.
