Odds on NFL Teams to Make or Miss the Playoffs

Odds on NFL Teams to Make or Miss the Playoffs

The 2019 NFL season has officially moved past the halfway point and the playoff picture is already starting to take shape.

Bovada has updated its odds for teams to either make or miss the postseason this year. While teams like the San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints appear to be locks to play after the regular season concludes, there’s a significant amount of value on other clubs around the league.

Here’s a look at some of the playoff bubble teams at the shop:

Pittsburgh Steelers: -120 to make the playoffs, -110 to miss the playoffs

The Steelers looked to be dead in the water after an 0-3 start to the campaign that included a season-ending injury to longtime starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, yet Pittsburgh is back in the playoff mix due to wins in three of its last four contests. Mason Rudolph has looked competent under center in place of Big Ben, and the defense has taken off after general manager Kevin Colbert traded for Minkah Fitzpatrick from the Miami Dolphins in mid-September. As of October 3, the Steelers were +225 to make the playoffs and -310 to miss them.

The Cleveland Browns have imploded despite going into the season with high expectations, and the Cincinnati Bengals are the only winless team left in the league right now. The Steelers have their work cut out for them at 4-4, but with two games against the Browns along with winnable matchups vs the Bengals, Arizona Cardinals and New York Jets left on the schedule, it’s not inconceivable for the Steelers to make a run for a wild-card spot.

Los Angeles Rams: -120 to make the playoffs, -110 to miss the playoffs

It’s realistic for Super Bowl hangovers to extend to both teams that played in the big game, not just the squad that wins the whole thing. That’s been the case for the sluggish 5-3 Rams, who entered the year as the favorites to win the NFC West and had a projected OVER/UNDER season win total of 10. L.A. finds itself in third place behind the undefeated 49ers and the 7-2 Seattle Seahawks in the suddenly extremely competitive division.

Jared Goff has taken a step back after signing a lucrative four-year, $134-million contract extension before the season, and the health of Todd Gurley has been the subject of much debate dating back to 2018. The blockbuster trade for stud cornerback Jalen Ramsey from the Jacksonville Jaguars at the trade deadline signals the franchise is still putting all of its chips on the table to win now, but it’s hard to foresee the Rams as true Super Bowl contenders in the tough NFC.

Philadelphia Eagles: -150 to make the playoffs, +115 to miss the playoffs

The Eagles have been a tough team to figure out this season for a variety of reasons. As good as the offense has looked at times, it’s often been cancelled out by a porous secondary that ranks among the worst defensive units in the NFL. Philly boasts impressive wins over the Green Bay Packers and Buffalo Bills, yet it’s also fallen flat in blowout losses to the Minnesota Vikings and Dallas Cowboys.

Unlike previous years, general manager Howie Roseman decided to stand pat at the trade deadline instead of seeking defensive help. The 5-4 Eagles are set to go toe to toe with the archrival 5-3 Cowboys in the fight for the NFC East, and they should be good enough to at least make a wild-card appearance. The health of the oft-injured Carson Wentz is of the utmost priority in the City of Brotherly Love, however, as Nick Foles is not around to save the day this time if the North Dakota State product goes down.
