LAS VEGAS - The third week of the NFL season has kicked off but the oddsmakers are already sure about who the best teams in the league are.

Elite Contender Playoff Odds Prop

  • Bills, Browns, Chiefs & Buccaneers All To Make The Playoffs +110

Each of these teams are well in charge of their division and seem very likely to make the playoffs that way

The Bills have -250 odds to win the AFC East, the Browns have +130 odds to win the AFC North, the Chiefs have -210 odds to win the AFC West, and the Bucs have -300 odds to win the NFC South.

Note, of course, that these teams can also make the playoffs if they do not win their division.

One of these teams, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, has an intriguing matchup this week against another contender, the Los Angeles Rams.

The Rams are tied with the San Francisco 49ers on the odds boards with +1100 odds, but a win against the Buccaneers could send them skyrocketing with sportsbooks.

Sports bettors should be aware of the potential for a Rams win to change the odds of both teams - if the Rams win, their odds will likely get shorter, while the Bucs’ odds will likely get longer.

However, if the Bucs win, it’s unclear if that would change much for them in terms of expectations - they’re already tied with the Chiefs for the lead and it’s unlikely that they go below +500 odds, even with a win.

The Rams, meanwhile, can be added into this bet, and in doing so would makes the odds significantly more generous for sports bettors.
