NFL Playoff Picture
Green Bay (+325) clinched the NFC’s No. 1 seed with an easy 37-10 victory over an overmatched Vikings club playing without unvaccinated quarterback Kirk Cousins. With their fifth straight win, the Packers earned a first-round bye and home field advantage up until the Super Bowl.
While still the favorite in the AFC, Kansas City (+475) made things harder for themselves, squandering a 14-point lead to Cincinnati (+2000) in a game where Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase combined for 11 completions for 266 yards and three touchdowns. With Tennessee (+1200) a near lock to clinch the No. 1 seed with a road game against the Texans on tap, the Chiefs will likely host the Chargers (+4000) or Raiders (+10000) on Wild Card Weekend.

Following a 28-24 comeback victory over the Jets, Tampa Bay (+750) could move in the NFC’s No. 2 seed with a win over the Panthers and a loss by the Rams (+900) against the 49ers in Week 18. However, after losing Chris Godwin and Antonio Brown from their receiving corps, Tom Brady will be severely shorthanded in his quest for an eighth Super Bowl ring.
The Bills (+800) will win their second-straight AFC East title with a win over the Jets on Sunday, setting themselves up to host a first-round rubber-match against the Patriots (+1400).
Arizona (+1800) ended a three-game skid with a 25-22 triumph over the Cowboys (+1000) in Week 17. With a win over the Seahawks and a Rams loss to the 49ers this weekend, the Cardinals could vault atop the NFC West, otherwise they’ll likely head to Dallas for a rematch in the Wild Card round.
Best Super Bowl Values
Tennessee (+1200) continues to get no respect even though they’re in pole position for the AFC’s No. 1 seed and a first-round bye. The Titans have already shown they could beat the Chiefs, Bills and Rams, and Derrick Henry could be nearing a return.
Cincinnati (+2000) claimed the AFC North for the first time since 2015 with a 34-31 victory over the Chiefs. Cigar smokin’ Joe Burrow threw for 446 yards and four touchdowns just one week after lighting up the Ravens for 525 yards passing and four touchdowns. This is a confident, scary team that could go toe-to-toe with anyone in the AFC.
Joe Burrow over the last two weeks:
Week 16: 525 passing yards, 4 TD, 0 INT
Week 17: 446 yards, 4 TD, 0 INT
He's the only player ever with back-to-back games of 400 yards, 4 TD and 0 INT. pic.twitter.com/qHS5nAKbQw

Indianapolis (+2000) fell to the Raiders 23-20 in Week 17 but this team was bound to look sluggish considering quarterback Carson Wentz, star linebacker Darius Leonard and most of their offensive line were on the reserve/COVID-19 list over the past week. With a defense that loves to cause turnovers and the best running back in the league in Jonathan Taylor, the Colts could run the table on the road all the way to Los Angeles.
