- The Baltimore Ravens have +195 odds to make the playoffs.
- The Cleveland Browns are +400 longshots.
- The Pittsburgh Steelers have +600 odds to make the playoffs, the longest of the division.
CINCINNATI - The AFC North has been one of the most tightly contested divisions throughout the season but now only one team is expected to make it past the regular season.
The Cincinnati Bengals currently have the best record in the AFC North and are therefore the favorites to win the division and make it to the playoffs.
Cincinnati Bengals To Make Playoffs Odds
- Yes -400
- No +300
The NFL betting sites are expecting Cincinnati to make the postseason quite overwhelmingly considering the tightness in the division standings. Given the current standings, only the Cleveland Browns could own the tiebreaker over them in the division, but Cincy would have to lose both games and Cleveland would need to win both for that to even have a chance of coming into play.
The Baltimore Ravens are in the midst of a major skid as they have lost four straight games, three of which were to division opponents. Since Baltimore lost both games to the Bengals, their chances of winning the division are very slim. The Ravens would need to qualify through the wild card.
Baltimore Ravens To Make Playoffs Odds
- Yes +195
- No -250
As the Ravens are sitting in the 10th position in the AFC, it does seem like a lot of ground to make up in two games. At the end of the day, Baltimore will need help from other teams along with a good performance themselves which is always a tough thing to bet on.
Pittsburgh Steelers And Cleveland Browns
The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns will play one another in Week 17, meaning one of the two will be eliminated from playoff contention with a loss. The Steelers hold a 7-7-1 record while Cleveland has a 7-8 record. Those betting on the NFL can find Cleveland as the favorite in the game.
Steelers vs Browns Spread Odds
- Cleveland Browns -3.0 -115
- Pittsburgh Steelers +3.0 -105
As the favorites in the game, Cleveland is also the more likely of the two to make the playoffs, albeit still a longshot.
Cleveland Browns To Make Playoffs Odds
- Yes +400
- No -600
As the anticipated losers, the Steelers are given longer odds to make the playoffs. Even if Pittsburgh were to win, their tie against the Detroit Lions earlier in the season may come back to haunt them as the extra win would have proven to be crucial.
Pittsburgh Steelers To Make Playoffs Odds
- Yes +600
- No -1200
Like the Browns, Pittsburgh will need a lot of help ahead of them. Too much help to justify betting on.
