  • After Andrew Luck retired, the Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars are tied at 2-1 to win the AFC South.
  • Find out odds for the rest of the division, as well as which AFC South teams is a smart bet to win the division.

AFC South Divisional Odds

  • Houston Texans: 2-1
  • Jacksonville Jaguars: 2-1
  • Tennessee Titans: +325
  • Indianapolis Colts: 4-1

Andrew Luck’s surprise decision to retire from the NFL has left the AFC South wide open. Before Luck’s news, the Colts (-140) were the odds-on favorites to win the division for the first time since 2014.

With Jacoby Brissett expected to start, Indianapolis’ odds to win the division have dropped to 4-1. The team’s implied probability of winning the AFC South has decreased from 58.3% to 20.0%.

Houston, the reigning division champion, is tied at 2-1 with Jacksonville, which replaced much-maligned quarterback Blake Bortles with Nick Foles.

Tennessee went from having the worst odds to win the division before the Luck retirement (6-1) to +325.
