How to bet on NFL playoff futures

Over the lengthy offseason, online sportsbooks will release the odds for each team’s chances to make the playoffs. Betting will begin then and can continue as the odds shift and remain available for much of the season.

To make the playoffs: Dallas Cowboys

For the above example, the -250 odds for “yes” indicate that the sportsbook sees it as more likely that Dallas makes it to the postseason, as do the +195 odds for “no.”

However, the preseason odds won’t always be correct. There’s regular turnover in NFL playoff participants from season to season. What the odds do provide, though, is a realistic set of expectations for all 32 teams.

For some clubs, the postseason odds will hover around -110 for both choices, similar to a spread or total bet. The span between the numbers can be much wider for other teams, just like what you find in some moneyline bets.

As a season-long wager, the bet requires a long-term perspective, as your funds will remain tied up until there’s an outcome. Beyond the chance to win some money if your bet is correct, NFL playoff futures can give you something else to root for as the season progresses.

NFL postseason format

Beginning with the 2020 season, the NFL expanded the playoff field from 12 to 14 teams. It was the first such expansion since 1990 and included several notable changes. Here’s how the format works:
