NFL Playoff Odds Updates Prior To Week 12 Kickoff


Thanksgiving football action is a few hours away, and sports bettors are still able to lock in their wagers on Super Bowl and Conference futures odds before the Week 12 results further impact the standings.

As we make it to the final stretch of the extended season, we connected with MyBookie Head Oddsmaker David Strauss to get his thoughts on the current contenders in each division.

“There has been a lot of parity in the league this season, and no team has really stood out above the others. In the NFC, it’s been a challenge to decipher which team will make it through the playoffs and be Super Bowl bound.”

“With the new playoff format continuing this season, only the top seed will have a bye, so teams will be fighting for that spot up until the end of the season.”

Let’s take a look at the most up-to-date NFC Playoff picture so you can continue planning your bets against the NFL NFC Divisional Odds.

Updated NFC Playoffs Picture

1. Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals are 9-2 and currently hold the top seed in the NFC. They’ve been winning games without Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins, so when those two return, the Cardinals will be that much better. The Arizona defense has played well, and if they continue to play at this pace, they could be tough to beat in the playoffs.

2. Green Bay Packers

Coming off of a loss at Minnesota, the Packers are now 8-3. Any time that you have Aaron Rodgers under center, you have a great shot at winning the game. We’ll see if Green Bay has enough surrounding Rodgers to make it to SoFi Stadium in February.

3. Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys’ offense struggled in their loss to the Chiefs, but they still have a stranglehold on the top spot in the NFC East. The Cowboys‘ defense has played well, but defensive coordinators are starting to find ways to confuse Dak Prescott.

4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

A date with the Giants on Monday night is just what the Buccaneers need. They’ve lost two straight, and with both the Packers and Cowboys losing this week, Tampa could gain some ground. Tom Brady always seems to find a way to win, so Tampa is always going to be dangerous with him around.

5. Los Angeles Rams

A date with the Giants on Monday night is just what the Buccaneers need. They’ve lost two straight, and with both the Packers and Cowboys losing this week, Tampa could gain some ground. Tom Brady always seems to find a way to win, so Tampa is always going to be dangerous with him around.

6. Minnesota Vikings

By beating the Packers on Sunday, the Vikings moved up in the playoff race. Their offense is dangerous and can give people fits in the playoffs. If they can get a few big stops, the Vikings could be a dangerous team in January.

7. New Orleans Saints

The Saints currently hold the final playoff spot. They’ve been very inconsistent, but they’ve been plagued by injuries. New Orleans has a very good defense, so if they do get in, watch out.

On the Outside Looking In

The San Francisco 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles have been two of the hotter teams in the NFL as of late. If they continue to play well, they could overtake some of the teams ahead of them. San Francisco has really looked good, as the running game is taking off, and the defense is playing well.

Updated AFC Playoffs Picture

“Every week it seems like a new team is atop the AFC Playoff standings. Before the season, everyone thought that the AFC was Kansas City’s to lose. After a slow start by the Chiefs, the Bills became everyone’s favorite in the AFC. After the luster wore off of the Bills, the Ravens and Bengals were popular picks. The Titans and the Patriots are among the favorites, and the Chiefs have turned things around and are starting to look good again.”

Let’s take a look at the AFC playoff picture after most of the games have been played in Week 11 so you can continue making your bets against the NFL AFC Divisional Odds.

Updated AFC Playoffs Picture | NFL Betting

1. Tennessee Titans

Even after losing to the lowly Houston Texans, the Titans still hold the top seed in the AFC. We’ll see if they can continue to hold this spot while they’re dealing with the injuries to Derrick Henry, AJ Brown, and numerous other key players.

2. Baltimore Ravens

Don’t look now, but the Patriots are back in first place in the AFC East. Mac Jones has been tremendous, and New England seems to have turned the corner. If they continue down this path, teams won’t want to see them come playoff time.

3. New England Patriots

Don’t look now, but the Patriots are back in first place in the AFC East. Mac Jones has been tremendous, and New England seems to have turned the corner. If they continue down this path, teams won’t want to see them come playoff time.

4. Kansas City Chiefs

Just when many thought that the Chiefs might not make the playoffs, they have kicked it into gear. The defense seems to have made some corrections, which has been a huge key to their resurgence. If the Chiefs’ offense continues to play well, no one will want to meet up with the Chiefs in January.

5. Pittsburgh Steelers

After coming off of a tough loss to the Chargers on Sunday night, the Steelers are 5-3-1 and are sitting in the top wild card slot in the AFC. Pittsburgh has been dealing with numerous injuries, especially to their defense. The AFC North is still up for grabs so that we could see a lot of movement among the playoff teams throughout the season.

6. Cincinnati Bengals

Speaking of the AFC North, the third-place Bengals are also a wild card team as of now. The Bengals have looked good at times but also have a loss to the Jets. We’ll see if they can hang on to a playoff spot.

7. Buffalo Bills

The 6-4 Buffalo Bills are a mystery to many. At times they look like the best team in the NFL, while at others, they look like a team playing for a high draft pick. The Buffalo defense was awful during Sunday’s loss to the Indianapolis Colts. We’ll see if they can rebound and try to climb up the AFC playoff standings.

On the Outside Looking In…

The Los Angeles Chargers currently hold the #8 spot, while the charging Indianapolis Colts hold the #9 position. Justin Herbert and the Charger offense could pose a lot of problems for numerous teams ahead of them. As for the Colts, Jonathan Taylor and the Colts offense is starting to get into a groove. They have one of the best offensive lines in the league, and if teams can’t stop the run, the Colts could make a long playoff run.
