2017-18 NFL Playoff Odds

With the start of the NFL regular season just over two months away, Westgate has come out with their Yes/No odds for every team to make the playoffs.

Team Yes No
Arizona Cardinals +175 -200
Atlanta Falcons -150 +130
Baltimore Ravens -110 -110
Buffalo Bills +550 -800
Carolina Panthers -110 -110
Chicago Bears +1200 -3000
Cincinnati Bengals +140 -160
Cleveland Browns +2000 -10000
Dallas Cowboys -200 +175
Denver Broncos +220 -260
Detroit Lions +300 -360
Green Bay Packers -310 +260
Houston Texans +140 -160
Indianapolis Colts +140 -160
Jacksonville Jaguars +400 -500
Kansas City Chiefs -150 +130
Los Angeles Chargers +270 -330
Los Angeles Rams +900 -1600
Miami Dolphins +375 -450
Minnesota Vikings +160 -180
New England Patriots -5000 +1500
New Orleans Saints +240 -280
New York Giants +130 -150
New York Jets +2000 -10000
Oakland Raiders -160 +140
Philadelphia Eagles +175 -200
Pittsburgh Steelers -340 +280
San Francisco 49ers +1400 -4000
Seattle Seahawks -600 +450
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +175 -200
Tennessee Titans +140 -160
Washington Redskins +330 -400

These odds offer a few great value options. For starters, I like the Broncos at +220 to make the playoffs, especially after adding a supposedly healthy Jamaal Charles to take some pressure off of whomever wins the quarterback race. With some question marks surrounding other Wild Card teams in the AFC, I wouldn’t be shocked to see three AFC West teams in the postseason.

In the NFC, the Panthers strike me as a team ready to bounce back from a disappointing 2016. Christian McCaffrey should step into a significant role right away, giving Cam Newton a solid short-yard option. The return of Julius Peppers also makes the Panthers, at -110, a good value for a team that could very easily be a division winner.

If you’re looking for more of a long shot pick, the Seahawks missing the playoffs at +450 is intriguing. Seattle has plenty of question marks for a team so heavily favored to make the postseason, including their offensive line, backfield, and seeming desire to part ways with cornerback Richard Sherman during the offseason.
