Odds To Make or Miss The NFL Playoffs in 2014

nfl-odds-to-make-playoffs-2014-2015

Every team in the NFL is starting off this season with the same goal: They all want to make the playoffs. It’s not as easy of a task as it seems, as the biggest favorite to get in the playoffs is only -450, while the biggest underdog to get into the postseason is +1200. Check out the best NFL betting lines we see on the board about who can and cannot get into the second season.

Seahawks To Make the Playoffs (-300) – It’s a chalky play, but we just don’t see how the Seahawks won’t defend their title in the playoffs this year, even with the rough and tumble NFC West schedule. They are still virtually unbeatable at CenturyLink Field, and even if you think that two foes will go in front of the “12th Man” and beat Seattle this season, that still leaves the team needing just a 4-4 record on the road to get the job done in all likelihood. There is not one piece to the puzzle that can be lost to make this team go into the tank, and though the defense isn’t going to be quite as dominating as it was last season, the Seahawks are still the best team in the NFL.

Bears To Make the Playoffs (+220) – We’re not really all that sure why there is such a level of pessimism around the Bears. Head Coach Marc Trestman is clearly an offensive genius, and he should have QB Jay Cutler healthy for the whole year. WR Alshon Jeffrey is rounding into one of the best receivers in the league, and he and WR Brandon Marshall really make this team formidable. The defense isn’t nearly as good as it has been, but in the NFC North, you need to be able to shoot it out with teams, and now, the Bears can. They’ve also improved a bit defensively.

Texans To Not Make the Playoffs (-370) – It’s almost a bit laughable just how bad the Texans were last season, and this year won’t be any better unless QB Tom Savage turns out to be the next great find like QB Russell Wilson. This defense has the makings of one which can be great up front, but the secondary is still one of the worst in the league as we see it. On top of that, WR Andre Johnson is disgruntled, and the team has a whole new staff that it is trying to break in. The Texans will win four or five more games this year than they did last season, but even in the lousy AFC South, this isn’t a playoff team.

Browns To Make the Playoffs (+700) – Oh, why not! Even without WR Josh Gordon, the Browns got appreciably better on both sides of the ball this offseason. The AFC North isn’t a division which scares us, as all three of the teams have gone in the wrong direction as we see it. Cleveland’s playing a last place schedule again, and we all know that it is only a matter of time until Johnny Football gets his time in the saddle. If the guy really is just a pure winner as some suggest, the Browns may be on their way to the playoffs this year.

Jaguars To Make the Playoffs (+1200) – Finish laughing first, then come back and read these next 100 words. The Jags are significantly better this year than they were last season, if for no other reason, they added basically an entirely new defensive line, one of which will look a lot more like the group that Head Coach Gus Bradley coached when he was in Seattle. The offense went ahead and regrouped at the wide receiver position through the NFL Draft, and last year’s top pick, LT Luke Joeckel, will play in his first regular season game this year. It’s like Jacksonville had four picks in the first 40 this year, and though yes, one of those was spent on QB
