2022-2023 NFL Playoff Odds & Betting Lines

Written by on December 1, 2022

It’s never too early in the season to start thinking about the NFL Playoffs. Now that we’re heading into Week 13 of NFL action, there will only be five games left to play after this weekend.

Teams know that every game is important, and a bad loss can cost them any shot at a postseason berth. Let’s take a look at how things shake out as of right now.

The Picture in the AFC

If the season were to end today, the Kansas City Chiefs would hold the top spot and have home-field advantage throughout the AFC Playoffs.

The Buffalo Bills would be the AFC East champs and would earn the #2 spot. Coming in at #3 would be the winners of the AFC North, the Baltimore Ravens. And the fourth and final division winner would be the Tennessee Titans.

For the wild card spots there are five teams fighting for the coveted three Wild Card spots. Leading the way is the Miami Dolphins. They’re currently in second place in the AFC East.

Another AFC East team, the New York Jets, would take the second Wild Card position. And as things sit now, the third and final Wild Card team would be the Cincinnati Bengals.

The other two teams vying for one of the Wild Card spots are the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Chargers. The AFC East is so good this season that all four teams could make the playoffs, as the Pats are currently sitting in last place in the East but still have a 6-5 record. The Chargers are also 6-5, but they have a tougher road ahead of them than the Patriots do.

NFC Outlook

The one-loss Philadelphia Eagles currently hold the top position in the NFC. They’re followed by the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings could actually clinch a playoff spot this weekend with a win and a Detroit Lions loss.

The third seed would go to the champions of the NFC West, the San Francisco 49ers. The Niners could actually be the most dangerous team come playoff time. The fourth and final division winner would be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tampa is having a rough season, but so is the rest of the NFC South.

The first Wild Card spot would go to the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys are playing really good football right now and would be a team that no one would want to face.

The second Wild Card spot would be occupied by the surprising Seattle Seahawks. The third and final Wild Card position would go to the third team from the NFC East, the New York Giants. The Giants have also been a surprise, as not much was expected from them.

On the outside looking in would be the Washington Commanders. Much like the AFC East, the NFC East has had a very good season. Ever since Taylor Heinicke was named the starting quarterback, the Commanders have played very well, and they’re making a run at a playoff spot. We’ll see how things end up in just a few short weeks.
