LAS VEGAS – NFL odds have been released as to which teams are likely to make the postseason next year. With the draft over, rosters are more or less final which give NFL betting fans all the information they need to form their opinions.
Sports betting sites list the Dolphins, Chargers, Saints, Steelers and Vikings all as underdogs to make the postseason.
The Minnesota Vikings (+120)
The Vikings, aside from the team that lands him, could benefit the most from the whole Aaron Rodgers situation going on in Green Bay. The NFC North without Aaron Rodgers in it is a wide-open race for a playoff spot.
Minnesota has one of the most dynamic players in the league in Dalvin Cook and a receiving core with Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson is more than capable of overcoming the inconsistent play of Kirk Cousins.
If Rodgers gets moved, the Vikings should be the favorite to win the division opposed to the Lions or Bears.
The Miami Dolphins (+135)
Last season the Dolphins went 10-6 and missed a wild card spot by just one game. With an extra offseason of Tua Tagovailoa learning the offense and the additions of Jaylen Waddle and Will Fuller V, the young quarterback is set up to succeed.
The Dolphins are still in a division with the Bills, so winning the division is going to be a tall task, but if the Patriots remain a beatable team, Miami could find themselves competing for a playoff spot late in the season.
The Los Angeles Chargers (+135)
The Chargers are in the same division as the Chiefs, so it’s very unlikely that they will win the division, but this is a team that could be a legit contender for a wild card spot. Los Angeles went 7-9 last season, but if healthy should improve their record.
Los Angeles, through both free agency and the draft, have solidified the offensive line which will help Justin Herbert build upon the historic start to his career.
The New Orleans Saints (+110)
Even with Drew Brees’ retirement, the Saints are still a dangerous team. Alvin Kamara has 21 touchdowns and over 1,600 yards from scrimmage last season and should be set up to have another big year in the offense. Michael Thomas is also just a couple years removed from setting the record for receptions in a season.
Jameis Winston is a capable NFL starter at QB. He’s thrown for over 5,000 yards in a season before and if he just cuts down his interceptions a little bit will be a Pro Bowl caliber player. The Saints were 12-4 last year and only have to compete with the Buccaneers inside the conference.
