NFL divisional bets I like right now


With NFL free agency and the draft behind us, the offseason is finally here. But that doesn't mean there aren't bets to made and value to bet found before training camp.

Caesars Sportsbook has updated its 2019 divisional odds, and while I agree with seven of their eight favorites, there are several underdogs worth considering at their current odds.

Note: Odds current as of June 17.

1. Los Angeles Chargers (+165)

Caesars unsurprisingly favors the incumbent AFC West champion Chiefs (-125) here, but it's tough for me to get behind them for a variety of reasons. For starters, league history suggests Kansas City's 2018 offensive production (66 touchdowns) is unsustainable. Consider that of the four offenses that scored 60-plus touchdowns in a season, all suffered a large dropoff the next season.
