AFC South NFL Betting

The AFC South is going to be the worst division in football this season. The Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, and the Tennessee Titans have the three longest odds to win the AFC, as all of these teams look to be starting rookie quarterbacks. Meanwhile, the Jacksonville Jaguars have the surest thing in the AFC South in Trevor Lawrence, and he led the team to five straight wins to close out the regular season. Jacksonville bested the Los Angeles Chargers in the Wild Card, and the Jags were competitive against Kansas City in the Divisional Round.

Trevor Lawrence had a strong second season in the NFL. Lawrence threw for over 4,000 yards with 25 touchdowns and eight interceptions, as he improved significantly with better receivers on the perimeter. This offense has the potential to be even better this season too with Calvin Ridley coming off a year-long suspension and Travis Etienne looking to take another step forward.

Tennessee knew that it had pretty much topped out with Ryan Tannehill under center. The Titans made it to the 2019 AFC Championship Game, and they cruised to division titles in 2020 and 2021. However, Tannehill threw for just 150.8 YPG in his five playoff starts for the Titans as those teams rode Derrick Henry as much as possible. Now, Tennessee is in the process of grooming two young quarterbacks in Malik Willis and Will Levis, so it’s safe to say that Tannehill is on his way out.

This will be the sixth straight season that the Indianapolis Colts have a new starting quarterback. Ever since Andrew Luck surprisingly retired, the Colts have been looking for a replacement, and they are finally looking for a long-term solution after veterans Philip Rivers, Carson Wentz, and Matt Ryan were all disappointing. Gardner Minshew signed a one-year deal with Indy this offseason, but the plan is for No. 4 overall pick Anthony Richardson to take over when ready. Richardson is very talented, yet he is very raw and will need some time to adjust after overwhelmingly relying on just his athleticism in college.

Houston will need some time to pull itself out of the gutter, but the Texans now have a leader on both sides of the ball. They drafted C.J. Stroud and Will Anderson with the No. 2 and No. 3 overall picks in the 2023 NFL Draft, and new coach DeMeco Ryans will be given time to implement his scheme after the last two coaches were only on the sidelines for a single season. Dameon Pierce had a very good rookie year, and this team has a decent amount of young talent that needs to develop.

Jacksonville claimed just its second AFC South title in 2022. Suddenly, the Jaguars are the team to beat in this division as the other three teams are all fully in rebuilding mode. Although Jacksonville is a mid-tier team in the conference, the Jags are odds-on favorites to win the division.

The Indianapolis Colts' success in the AFC South dates back to their days with Hall of Famer Peyton Manning under center. The Colts haven’t claimed a division title since 2014 though. Houston was the team of the 2010s with all six of its AFC South titles in that decade, surpassing both Tennessee and Jacksonville.
