High hopes for Raiders after Adams trade
Two teams from the AFC West division find themselves just inside the top 10: the Denver Broncos and the Las Vegas Raiders. Davante Adams’ arrival in Las Vegas has raised expectations in the betting houses, while the Broncos’ odds of success have fallen after they brought in quarterback Russell Wilson.
Meanwhile, the Cleveland Browns are an interesting case. They’re currently rated as 15th-most likely to win the NFL title, but that is in no small part down to the presence of Deshaun Watson. Were the QB to be banned by the league, the Browns’ chances would take a major hit.
