In particular, the Oakland Raiders offer a tremendous value.

The payout would be $450 for every $100 bet.

At 3-2, the Raiders are very much in the thick of things though they still suffer from a lack of receiver depth.

The Denver Broncos proved to be especially vulnerable Thursday night and come in at 12/1 to win the division.

Once thought to be the biggest threat to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Chargers are just 2-4 heading into Week 7.

From's Eric D. Williams:

"The Chargers have 11 giveaways this season, including five in the red zone and three within their opponent's 2-yard line. Slow starts also have been an issue of late, as the Chargers have been outscored a combined 38-0 in the first half the past two games. The Bolts are struggling to score points, but at the heart of this team's 2-4 record is its inability to protect the football."

For now, the Chiefs remain the favorite to win the AFC West at -300 most books.
