NFL: Bookies Bet On Playoff Places

Bookmakers William Hill have updated their odds on which teams will make the NFL Playoffs. Teams that have already made it through to the post-season or have no hope of doing so are not included.

Fans of the Oakland Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, Pittsburgh Steelers, Houston Texans, New York Giants, Atlanta Falcons and Detroit Lions will all be happy to see their respective teams are odds-on to make the playoffs.

However, with a handful of games left to play, there could still be a few twists and turns in the race for a playoff spot.

“If you’re a Raiders, Chiefs or Falcons fan then you may as well stick the drinks in the fridge, because the playoffs await,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.  

It’s unlikely the Carolina Panthers (10/1) will make the postseason – so no celebratory dabbing from Cam Newton. The same is true for the San Diego Chargers (8/1) and Arizona Cardinals (8/1) who are complete outsiders to secure a playoff berth.

“If you’re a Panthers, Chargers or Cardinals fan then you better believe in miracles, because you’ll need one to make the playoffs,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
