MIAMI - When it comes to betting on the NFL, bettors should know that there is more to betting on it than just game lines and futures odds. There are plenty of NFL specials odds as well, specifically odds on which teams will make the playoffs.
NFL sportsbooks have different teams with underdog odds to make the playoffs in which bettors should take a closer look into such as the Miami Dolphins, Los Angeles Chargers, and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Miami Dolphins To Make The Playoffs
- Yes +110
- No -145
Starting with the Miami Dolphins, they did not make the playoffs in the 2020 season, however, they have certainly proven their worth and are sure to give teams a run for their money this year for a potential playoff run.
Not to mention, the Dolphins had a top-five ranked defense in the league last season and have even added some major talent in the offseason and the NFL Draft as well to ensure another successful season.
They have brought in Will Fuller, who is a proven speedster on the field, and have drafted a young elusive receiver in Jaylen Waddle also.
Bettors should also not forget that a lot is riding on Tua Tagovailoa having a second-year leap in 2021. They do share their division with the Buffalo Bills who are favored to win the division though but have more than enough to either compete with them or take one of the Wild Card spots.
Los Angeles Chargers To Make The Playoffs
- Yes +120
- No -160
There is a lot of high expectations for the Los Angeles Chargers going into the 2021 season. They had a bit of a below-average 2020 season going 7-9 with Justin Herbert under center, however, he did take over the starting job midway through the season.
Any NFL bettor looking to bet on the Chargers to make the playoffs should not worry at all as Justin Herbert is expected to take a huge second-year leap as well.
Not to mention, he built one of the strongest chemistries in the league with his top receiver, Keenan Allen, which is expected to expand to new heights. They also have an elusive running back in Austin Ekeler who has proven his worth in the league as an RB1. Also with an upgraded offensive line, Herbert will have more room to grow and lead the team.
The only downside of things here for the Chargers to make the playoffs is that they play in the same division as the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West where the Chiefs are almost certainly a lock to win the division. That said, the Chargers will be fighting for a Wild Card spot.
Pittsburgh Steelers To Make The Playoffs
- Yes +140
- No -185
What many bettors are quick to forget is that the Pittsburgh Steelers are still the same team that they were in the 2020 season. The only significant change that the Steelers have made is moving on from James Conner in the backfield and upgrading to rookie running back, Najee Harris.
They managed to keep most of their key defensive pieces which helped them become the number three ranked defense in the league last season. They have one of the most dynamic receiving teams in the league led by Juju Smith-Schuster, Dionte Johnson, and Chase Claypool who can torch pretty much any opposing defense.
They are in one of the toughest divisions in the league right now though which could play a role on them making the playoffs as they have to compete with the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens. All in all, betting on the Steelers to make the playoffs could be a profitable one to make.
