Who will make the 2023 NFL playoffs? Here's a look at what the oddsmakers have to say with bet365 sportsbook. In this article, we'll take a look at the teams in the AFC.

Odds to make the AFC playoffs (YES then NO)

Firstly, here's some help in understanding the odds as posted.

The YES side means that they will make the playoffs. The NO side means that they will not. If you look at the Buffalo Bills, 1 to 16 on the YES side would mean that a bet of 16 units would produce a profit of 1 unit for a return of 17 units. 1 to 16 is the same as -1600 for American odds or 1/16.
