Odds on NFL Teams to Make or Miss the Playoffs

Kansas City Chiefs

With the halfway point of the NFL season here, odds are out on the chances for teams to either make or miss the playoffs.

While the postseason is still a few months away, Bovada is already gearing up for what’s shaping up to be an epic postseason run on the gridiron. The shop has released odds on the likelihood of 24 teams to both reach the postseason and miss the promised land altogether.

Which teams are looking like a toss-up?

The first half of the campaign has featured a number of underperforming clubs, and the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles are at the top of that list. The Eagles (4-4 SU) are coming off a 24-18 win in London, yet it’s clear they’ve suffered from a bit of a Super Bowl hangover in the opening two months. As a result, the shop has given Doug Pederson’s crew a -110 shot of making the playoffs and a -130 price of missing them.

The Vikings have a -120 chance of both making and missing the playoffs.

After losing to the Eagles in the NFC championship game last season, the Minnesota Vikings were widely expected to be championship contenders, and their odds to win the NFC before the year kicked off reflected that. It’s been anything but smooth sailing for the Vikes, however, as the squad is trailing the Chicago Bears in the NFC North entering Week 9.

Once a bright spot, Minnesota’s defense has taken a step back in 2018. The Vikings are giving up 24.4 points per game – 18th in the NFL – and let the New Orleans Saints hang 30 on them in a Week 8 loss. The Vikes should figure things out on that end sooner rather than later, and they can be had at -120 to both make and miss the postseason.

Take a look at the shop’s list for the 24 teams. Where do you think the value lies? Have your say in the comments.

The 2018 NFL season is finally here, and both football bettors and oddsmakers are aligned in their excitement for the action on the gridiron to return. Wondering what your favorite team’s odds are to make or miss the playoffs this year? We have you covered.

BetOnline is dealing odds on every NFL team to make or miss the promised land in the upcoming campaign, which we’ve outlined below. The Cleveland Browns, who own the longest playoff drought in the league (15 years), have a +550 shot of bucking that trend in 2018. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who possess a 10-year postseason drought of their own, are +425 in that regard.

What’s up with the NFC South?

The NFC South is widely regarded as the most competitive division in the NFL and that’s not expected to change this season. The New Orleans Saints earned the bragging rights for the South in 2017, but both the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons booked playoff tickets as wild cards. New Orleans is -130 to get back there according to BetOnline, yet there could be excellent value on the Panthers and Falcons.

Carolina’s chances to advance to the postseason sit at +130, while Atlanta’s are +115. Neither club took a step back in the offseason, and it wouldn’t shock anyone to see three NFC South squads back in the playoffs. If you like either the Panthers or Falcons to make it, grab them now.

As usual, Patriots far and above everyone else

Were you planning on wagering on the New England Patriots to make the playoffs? Good luck with that. The Pats’ odds to play after the regular season are an astronomical -1500, with the odds of them missing the playoffs entirely at +800. Considering Tom Brady and company have made nine straight postseason appearances and play in the weak AFC East, it would be a huge surprise to see them fail to get there.
