How Is The NFL Playoff Picture Calculated?
To produce the NFL Playoff picture bracket for 2020-21, we’ve taken the futures odds presented at our top-rated NFL sportsbooks and combined them together to create an image of which teams will qualify for the postseason, what seed they will earn, and how far they will advance.
We’ve used betting lines for the winner of each division, AFC and NFC championship futures, game lines, and odds for Super Bowl 55 to come up with these predictions, and they offer an interesting perspective when compared to the reality of the NFL Playoffs bracket if the season ended on a given day.
Why The NFL Playoff Picture 2020-21 Bracket Matters
Its easy to look at a list of teams and their money line odds and simply select the franchise that seems to be the best among them, but only when looking at what the odds mean when applied to a potential NFL Playoff bracket in 2020-21 can a proper decision be made.
When you’re laying some action on the New England Patriots to win the Super Bowl, it can seem like a sure bet, but NFL money line bets don’t capture the full picture. The oddsmakers may be painting a scenario that has New England winning on the road throughout the playoffs, and without seeing the NFL playoff bracket odds in image form, that tough road to the title may not have been as obvious to the bettor.
There may be other times where AFC playoff bracket odds reveal an incredibly tough defense on the horizon, or the NFC playoff picture may expose a wide-open path to the Super Bowl littered with duds. Both of these scenarios matter a great deal when considering NFL postseason bets.
How Does The NFL Playoff Bracket Work?
There have been a few rule changes introduced for the 2020-21 NFL Playoffs that will greatly affect the march to the postseason as well as how teams in the NFL playoff brackets are placed and will advance.
This year, the playoffs increase from 12 to 14 total teams, as an additional wild card slot has been added to each conference. With the added wild card team comes a reduction of bye weeks offered, as now, only the team that earns the #1 seed in each conference will secure a week off during the opening round.
Once the NFL Playoffs begin, it’s win or go home. The winning teams advance toward the Super Bowl while the losing teams are sent home packing.
What do the NFL playoff picture and odds have to do with each other?
Oftentimes, the NFL Playoff odds and the NFL Playoff picture do not agree, which make them an interesting comparison to use prior to placing any bets on pro football’s postseason. Its easy to look at odds on NFL futures and select a winner, but having a visual playoff picture based on those odds reveals what the bettor is actually wagering on the occurrence of.
