- The Los Angeles Chargers have -115 odds to both make and miss the playoffs this season.
- The Minnesota Vikings also have a -115 betting line on both sides of their playoff prop.
LOS ANGELES – The NFL is already down to the final six weeks of the regular season, meaning the playoff picture is starting to solidify itself. However, two teams are hanging on the edge of seeing their season continue past Week 18.
The Los Angeles Chargers’ Odds
If the season ended today, prior to Week 13, the Los Angeles Chargers would make an appearance in the postseason. However, with six more weeks to play, it seems as if online sportsbooks aren’t too confident in their ability to hold onto their spot.
Los Angeles Chargers Playoff Odds
- Yes -115
- No -115
The Chargers have a relatively tough schedule with the Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs and the Las Vegas Raiders remaining as well as easier matchups against the Houston Texans and New York Giants. The games against the Broncos and Raiders may be particularly important as the three all have the same record.
They still have a chance to win the division, only trailing the Chiefs - who they will play - by a single game.
The Minnesota Vikings’ Odds
Unlike the Chargers, the Minnesota Vikings would be watching from their couches if the postseason started today. The team is currently one spot behind the Washington Football Team for the seventh seed in the NFC but NFL betting sites are more optimistic that Minnesota will close the season on a strong note.

Minnesota Vikings Playoff Odds
- Yes -115
- No -115
In comparison to the other 5-6 teams in the NFC, the Vikings are clearly the sportsbook’s top choice.
Washington Football Team Playoff Odds
- Yes +275
- No -350
Although Washington is thought to be a bit of a longshot, the Falcons are given significantly longer odds to stick with the rest of the pack.
Atlanta Falcons Playoff Odds
- Yes +600
- No -1000
The Vikings also have the seventh-easiest remaining strength of schedule in the NFL with half of the remaining games being against the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears.
Minnesota should help build on their case to make the playoffs as they’re one of the biggest favorites of the week in their game against the Lions. Plus, the Falcons and Football Team are both underdogs in Week 13 as well.
