The NFL is formally into the back half of the 2019 calendar, and the playoffs are approaching on the horizon. It will be at least a few more weeks before teams start clinching playoff berths, but in the mean time, odds are climbing for quite a few teams.
DraftKings Sportsbook offers odds on whether or not each team will make the playoffs. Teams either well below .500 or far enough down behind multiple teams are no longer getting odds. Additionally, the Patriots are not getting odds. Although they are 8-1 and coming off a loss, the dearth of talent in their division after the Bills means they are all but certain to be playing in the 2020 playoffs.
The 49ers are undefeated, but they remain on the odds board because of the competition in their division. The Seahawks and Rams are multiple games behind them, but the 49ers schedule the second half of the season is a rough one. They face the Seahawks twice, and still have to play the Packers, Saints, and Ravens. They stand a great chance of making the playoffs, but their second half schedule is a buzz saw.
The Saints are the closest up top to coming off this list. They are listed at -5000 to make the playoffs. The NFC South is not anywhere near as competitive as it looked coming into the season, with the Saints and Panthers looking to run away with the top two spots. The Panthers are at +163 to make the playoffs thanks to a) being behind New Orleans and b) dealing with a difficult wild card race.
Here’s the full rundown of playoff odds as Week 10 gets going.
