    The AFC West is Loaded. Can Russell Wilson & the Denver Broncos Keep Up? (W/ Cody Roark) Plus: NFL Hall of Fame Game Odds

    The AFC West is Loaded. Can Russell Wilson & the Denver Broncos Keep Up? (W/ Cody Roark) Plus: NFL Hall of Fame Game Odds

    The AFC West is the only NFL Division where absolutely any team could finish first, and absolutely any team could finish last. The Chiefs (+155) are the obvious favorite, given their recent team history, but the Chargers (+230) and Broncos (+260) are both very live. Even the Raiders (+650!) were a playoff team in 2021.

    The Broncos may have made the most dramatic offseason upgrade when they finally fixed their longstanding quarterback woes by acquiring Super Bowl-winning quarterback Russell Wilson. Wilson makes the Broncos instant championship contenders... assuming that Denver can stay healthy, that is.

    This week, I asked Cody Roark (Mile High Sports; Locked on Broncos Podcast) to join me to discuss Wilson, Broncos odds, and all things AFC West.

    Airhorn: a small play on the total in this week's 2022 NFL Hall of Fame Game, plus a recap of some very profitable tennis plays from Wednesday night.

    Tom Brady, Julio Jones, and the Buccaneers' NFL Divisional Odds (W/ Bobby Thompson)

    Tom Brady, Julio Jones, and the Buccaneers' NFL Divisional Odds (W/ Bobby Thompson)

    Of all the NFL divisional championship prices available at BetMGM, the number for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is the one that dramatically stands out. Many favorites have modest prices, somewhere between -120 and +150; Tampa is -300.

    The NFC South is not particularly competitive, with Carolina looking listless and Atlanta still rebuilding. But the Saints still look good, and there's crazy value on New Orleans at +375 -- especially considering that the Saints have owned Tampa throughout the regular season during the Brady era.

    Is it worth buying Tampa at such an insane cost? How does the Julio Jones signing mesh with the current depth chart? And what on Earth happened with Tom Brady this offseason?

    For all that and more, Chase invites on Tampa Bay reporter Bobby Thompson (Bucs Report) to set the record straight.

    So... Why Are the Dallas Cowboys Favorites, Again? Exploring The NFC East Odds (W/ Quinton Mayo)

    So... Why Are the Dallas Cowboys Favorites, Again? Exploring The NFC East Odds (W/ Quinton Mayo)

    We're all the way back, baby! Quinton Mayo (BetMGM Tonight) joins the show to help Chase break down the NFC East odds market.

    No team has won the NFC East in back-to-back years since the Eagles did it in 2003-04, nearly 20 years ago. The Dallas offense got noticeably worse in the offseason, while Philadelphia and Washington made major upgrades. So why should anyone bet Dallas at the top of the market? Quinton and Chase hash it out.

    NFL Divisional odds at BetMGM as of this episode's publication:

    Dallas Cowboys +120
    Philadelphia Eagles +190
    Washington Commanders +500
    New York Giants +650

How is this free?

Chase is giving out actual smart and actionable bets. The pod is funny and not the same sports drabble you hear from everyone else. Always my first listen. Keep up the good work!

Finally found a podcast which isn’t copy and paste of everything else out there. Two great hosts, insane knowledge in terms of analytics and a super easy listen.
