AFC East Playoff Odds

The Miami Dolphins are loaded with speed and talent and looking for more, so at -112 odds they are a very intriguing bet. The New York Jets, meanwhile, added Aaron Rodgers, which would seem to make them instant playoff contenders with the defense and cache of offensive weapons they have. At -102, the Jets are also a good bet. If you felt so inclined, you could bet on both the Dolphins and Jets to make the playoffs and feel very good about it. Heck, one of these guys might actually win the division.

AFC North Playoff Odds

The Ravens -164 odds are a little bit short for a futures bet, so the question is who is going to surprise the NFL this year between the Steelers and Browns? The Browns seemingly can’t be worse than last year, but the Steelers seem like a young team on the rise as well. The Steelers are offering slightly better odds at +121, but the Browns seem to have a few more proven players and at +115 odds, they’re offering pretty good value compared to the talent on that roster.

AFC South Playoff Odds

The Texans, Colts, and Titans have the second, third, and fifth longest odds to make the playoffs, and for good reason. Despite having the best running back in the game in Derrick Henry, the Titans are a mess at quarterback. The Colts are in rebuild mode after drafting Anthony Richardson. Don’t even get me started on the Texans. Stay away.

AFC West Playoff Odds

The Denver Broncos had one of the best defenses last year, and if new coach Sean Payton can get Russell Wilson to even a fraction of his old self, the band of skill players around him will flourish. At +185, they’re probably offering the most value of any team to make the playoffs on this board. The Chargers are a great team too, however, and their ceiling would seem to be rising. Their -102 odds are actually surprisingly low, so if you're a Justin Herbert believer, that’s about as much value as you can ask for.

NFC East Playoff Odds

After winning a playoff game last year, belief in the New York Giants has seemingly waned, as they’re offering +150 odds. In the AFC, we’d want to stay away from this one, but in the quarterback wasteland of the NFC, it’s one of the best bets you can get right now if you think Daniel Jones can at least repeat what he did last year. 

NFC North Playoff Odds

This one should be a battle between the Lions and the Vikings, but at -164 and -102 odds, respectively, it’s clearly the Vikings that are serving up the value here. The Lions offense was really humming last year, and we like them to keep it going, but in the NFC, both of these teams could make the playoffs, and with a new-look defense and a solid offense, -102 is a great bet to make in the weak NFC.

NFC South Playoff Odds

An 8-9 record could win this division. The Atlanta Falcons have amassed some intriguing young talent and with +121 odds, they seem like the wager to make here if you think Desmond Ridder can take a small step forward. The Saints’ +145 odds to somehow lose this brutal division are not a bad option either. Nor are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Baker Mayfield to make it at +340. This one’s a crap shoot.

NFC West Playoff Odds

Can Geno Smith do it again? That’s really the only question here with the Seahawks at -122 odds here. The NFC is going to struggle for quality teams, so if you liked the massive haul of talent they got in the draft (4 players in first 2 rounds) take another shot on Geno.
