Raiders new head coach Jack Del Rio has put it out there that the Raiders number one goal this season is to win the division. That's something this team hasn't accomplished in 13 years, so it is a pretty good goal to have. And in that quest, according to Vegas oddsmakers, they unsurprisingly have the longest odds to climb that mountain.

The Raiders are given 18/1 odds to win the AFC West, which is the longest in the division. Here are the full AFC West division odds courtesy of Bovada:

Denver Broncos 1/2
Kansas City Chiefs 7/2
San Diego Chargers 5/1
Oakland Raiders 18/1

The only team in the NFL with longer odds to win their respective division are the Jacksonville Jaguars with 20/1 odds.

'Oddly' enough, the Raiders don't have the lowest or even the second lowest odds to win the conference. Their 40/1 odds are third lowest, ahead of the Titans (75/1) and Jaguars (100/1).

They pull a bit more out of the cellar in the Super Bowl odds. At 75/1, they are 28th, which is ahead of the Buccaneers (100/1), Washington (100/1), Jaguars (200/1), and Titans (200/1).

Some more interesting odds are those for Offensive Rookie of the Year, where Amari Cooper comes in fourth with 15/2 odds. Here are the best odds for ORoY:

Melvin Gordon 13/2
Jameis Winston 7/1
Marcus Mariota 7/1
Amari Cooper 15/2
Todd Gurley 8/1
Kevin White 10/1
TJ Yeldon 12/1

Cooper also has an over/under on yards receiving at 900 1/2 and an over/under on receiving TD's at 5 1/2.
