Bovada gives Jaguars 7/2 odds to win AFC South

New, comments

If you bet $500 on the Jaguars and they win the AFC South, you'll win $1,750 profit. Hmmm.

The AFC South is likely to be another crapshoot for division winner late into the 2016 NFL season. That's why Bovada giving 7/2 odds for the Jacksonville Jaguars to win the division, who arguably had the best offseason of any team in the league, could pay big dividends by the end of the year.

Here's all four teams in the AFC South and their respective odds to win the division.

Indianapolis Colts 5/4
Houston Texans 2/1
Jacksonville Jaguars 7/2
Tennessee Titans 10/1

In short, you're winning 125% of your money if you bet and win with the Colts, 200% if you bet and win with the Texans, 350% if you bet and win with the Jaguars, and 1,000% (lol ok) if you bet and win with the Titans.

Across the league, the Colts are sixth in terms of odds strengths to win the division, ahead of just the Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys. The Texans are the fifth in terms of odds strengths to become runner-up. And the Jaguars, projected to come in third, have better odds to win the division than some teams have to come in second place.

In short, Vegas is predicting a clusterfuck again this year.

If you want the best of both worlds in terms of being a homer with decent odds, this could be it.
