NFL Playoff Odds: Every Team’s Odds To Make 2021-22 NFL Post-Season

Tom Brady & Tampa Bay lead the NFL playoff odds heading into Week 5.

After an interesting wrinkle in the 2020 NFL season that saw seven teams in each conference make the postseason, the schedule is now expanded to 17 games for the 2021 season and oddsmakers have had to adjust for NFL playoff odds.

According to the latest NFL playoff odds from BetOnline Sportsbook, the two teams likeliest to make the NFL postseason in 2021 are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-1200) and the Buffalo Bills (-1000). On the flip side, the two teams with the worst odds to make the playoffs are the Detroit Lions at +4000 and the Houston Texans at +3500.

Just four weeks into the season, NFL playoff odds by team have shifted slightly to reflect what has transpired thus far, along with projected win totals for each team.

Here are the odds to make or miss the playoffs in the 2021 season for all 32 NFL teams and below it are some teams to keep an eye on:

Odds To Make NFL Playoffs: Value Pick To Bet On

Carolina Panthers +175

Yes, the Panthers have the Buccaneers and Saints in their division. But they already beat the Saints in their first game and sit at 3-1 to start the season. They have exceeded the expectations of many people so far, and the next several weeks could put them in a prime position to make the postseason.

Their next five games all come against teams that are currently 1-3 – the Eagles, Vikings, Giants, Falcons and Patriots. The Panthers should be favored to win all of those games and even winning three or four of the five, they would go into Week 10 with a 7-2 or 6-3 record.

Another reason to consider the Panthers is the tremendous play of their young, up-and-coming defense. Although the sample size is small, the Panthers currently rank third in total yards allowed per game, second in passing yards allowed per game, third in points allowed per game and first in third-down conversion percentage allowed.

At +175, you are getting great value for a team that could be in really good shape heading into the latter stretch of the season.

NFL Playoff Odds: A Team To Avoid In Betting

San Francisco 49ers -250

The San Francisco 49ers came out of the gate firing this season with two wins, but those victories came against teams that are now a combined 1-7. After back-to-back losses, the 49ers sit at 2-2 with the two losses coming against two very good teams in the Packers and Seahawks.

One of the biggest concerns I have with the 49ers is their inability to stay healthy. Every week there are several guys going down with an injury, especially in the secondary. As well, the uncertainty at quarterback is a major concern. Jimmy Garoppolo hasn’t been all that impressive and we really do not know what to expect from Trey Lance. Lance will likely be making his first career start this week and as we have seen with most rookie quarterbacks, they are prone to experiencing some growing pains.

Looking at the 49ers schedule, they certainly have some winnable games but they still have to play five more divisional games in a division in which they may be the worst team. They have two games against both the Rams and Cardinals, who are a combined 7-1 this season. The first of those games is this upcoming week when they take on the undefeated Arizona Cardinals on the road.

 In arguably the best division in football, and currently tied for last place, the 49ers are an easy bet to stay away from, in my opinion. The NFC West is too unpredictable at the moment. The Odds Calculator shows that the 49ers’ current odds of -250 imply a 71.43 percent chance of making the playoffs. I believe that the 49ers’ chances of making the playoffs are well below that number.

How to Read NFL Playoff Odds

When you check out your favorite NFL sportsbook, playoffs odds would look something like this:

Miami Dolphins - 2021 Season
Make PlayoffsMiss Playoffs

In this case, Miami’s NFL odds to make the playoffs are reasonable at +225 (30.77 percent implied probability). For instance, if you were to lay $100 down on the Dolphins at +225, you’d get a payout of $325 – your original $100 is returned along with your winnings of $225.

Our Odds Calculator will tell you how much you’d win based on the odds and amount bet.

What are Prop Bets?

Props are bets made on the occurrence or non-occurrence of certain events. These may not necessarily correlate to the outcome of a particular game. Instead of betting on a team to cover the spread or win outright, you would wager on whether they’re going to make the playoffs or not.

As the season progresses, oddsmakers will adjust the betting lines to reflect wins, losses, coaching changes, and trades. If you see odds you like, it’s best to take them early because before you know it, the playoffs will be upon us and it’ll be too late.
