Who's Favored To Win The 2020 AFC Championship?
No surprise here, as the New England Patriots have been favored to win the 2020 AFC Championship since earning their sixth Super Bowl Championship win. The Patriots are currently favored to win the AFC Conference at +325 by Bovada sportsbook. It makes sense that they would be favored because even though Tom Brady is nearing his mid-40s, he’s shown no indication of slowing down. The Patriots have notoriously owned the AFC conference for the better part of two decades because of consistent quarterback play and a system that has been brilliantly developed and executed by head coach Bill Belicheck. With his retirement announced shortly after the last Super Bowl victory, the Pats are without Robert Gronkowski this season. Still, a shortage of talent has never stopped the team from dominating their division and their conference.
Current AFC Championship Betting Odds
Aside from the New England Patriots, there are plenty of other Vegas odds to win the AFC Championship. While the Patriots have +325 betting odds to win the AFC, the Kansas City Chiefs are not far behind. The Chiefs are coming off a historic season and are equipped with last season’s NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes lit up scoreboards last season with over 50 touchdowns and took the league by storm with a myriad of acrobatic throws. The Chiefs are currently listed at +400 to win the 2020 AFC Championship.
Next in line are the Cleveland Browns. Yup, you read that correctly. A franchise that was once the laughing stock of the NFL has now equipped itself with arguably the most talented offense in the entire league. The Browns added Odell Beckham Jr. and Kareem Hunt during the offseason. Both pickups should help the last season ROY finalist Baker Mayfield in their pursuit to the Super Bowl. The Browns are currently listed at +600 to win the 2020 NFL AFC Championship.
