It is no surprise that Andy Reid’s Kansas City Chiefs are the favourites for AFC West glory after their run to the AFC Championship last season.

After winning the last three AFC West titles, Kansas City Chiefs will be confident of adding to their trophy cabinet once again for the 2019 campaign (Chiefs 8/13 favs – AFC Outright).

Andy Reid’s troops (13/2 Super Bowl Outright) showed they were Super Bowl contenders in 2018 as they topped the AFC West thanks to a 12-4 record.

They won the divisional playoffs contest against the Indianapolis Colts but eventually succumbed to the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes is once again expected to have a stellar season, and the organisation are ready to award him with a six-year deal before the season starts.

Steve Spagnuolo has been drafted in as the team’s new defensive coordinator, and he has brought in Frank Clark and Tyrann Mathieu in the offseason.

If last season is anything to go by, then the Los Angeles Chargers are also set to compete for the top spot in the AFC West.

Head coach Anthony Lynn helped his team reach 12-4 last season, but they were also beaten by the Patriots in the play-offs.

The Chargers’ offensive line is a real worry for their fans, but Forrest Lamp looks to have done enough to earn a starting berth.

Running-back Melvin Gordon has yet to finalise a new contract, but he looks set to stay put for at least one more season.

Oakland Raiders have been in the headlines after they pulled off a coup by signing wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Brown has had to handle cryotherapy issues after damaging his feet while he also needs to resolve his helmet issue before week one.

Coach John Gruden and QB Derek Carr seem to be forming a stable relationship and they could be one to watch as they try to win the division (Raiders 18/1 AFC West Outright).

Denver Broncos complete the division, and Vic Fangio’s side are looking to improve on their 6-10 record from last season.

They have built around their offensive line, and Joe Flacco will be under the spotlight, with sceptics questioning what he has left at the highest level.
