Nine teams enter the 2019 NFL season as odds-on favorites to make the playoffs. Five of them are reigning division winners, and only one of the nine teams didn’t reach the postseason last year.

Here’s a closer look at the NFL teams favored to make the playoffs, according to the latest betting odds at New Jersey’s FanDuel Sportsbook:

New England Patriots: Yes -1150, No +700

The Patriots are a lock to make the playoffs when Tom Brady is under center. New England has made the postseason in 15 of the last 16 years, only failing to reach the postseason when the quarterback tore his ACL in Week 1 of the 2008 season. The Patriots have won 10 straight AFC East titles. 

New Orleans Saints: Yes -320, No +245

The Saints won the NFC South by six games last season, repeating as division champs for the first time in franchise history. New Orleans has suffered devastating playoff exits in each of the last two years, falling victim to the Minnesota Miracle and an infamous missed pass interference call. 

Kansas City Chiefs: Yes -304, No +240

The Chiefs have never finished below .500 in six seasons under Andy Reid, making five playoff appearances and winning three straight AFC West titles. Patrick Mahomes is the reigning MVP, having led the NFL’s No.1 offense with 50 touchdown passes. Only New England has better Super Bowl LIV odds than Kansas City. 

Los Angeles Rams: Yes -280, No +215

The Rams have won the NFC West and led the conference in scoring in both seasons under head coach Sean McVay. Los Angeles was held to just three points in February’s Super Bowl loss. The gap between the Rams and the rest of the division might be greater than it has been in either of the last two years.

Philadelphia Eagles: Yes -205, No +166

The Eagles have made the postseason in two straight years with Nick Foles leading the way in place of an injured Carson Wentz. Foles has since moved on, but Philadelphia might have as much talent as any team in the NFC. After winning the Super Bowl two years ago, the Eagles nearly returned to the NFC Championship Game.

Los Angeles Chargers: Yes -198, No +160

The Chargers are the only odds-on playoff favorite that isn’t favored to win their division. Los Angeles was a wild-card team last season with a 12-4 record, winning on the road against the Baltimore Ravens in the first round. L.A. did recently lose All-Pro safety Derwin James for three to four months.

Indianapolis Colts: Yes -178, No +144

The Colts began the preseason as one of the most popular Super Bowl picks. Indianapolis’ momentum has since slowed down considerably because of Andrew Luck’s lower leg injury, which could force him to miss the start of the season. The team remains the heavy favorite to win the AFC South, coming off a trip to the divisional round. 

Cleveland Browns: Yes -122, No +100

The Browns are the only team that's favored to make the playoffs after missing last year’s postseason. Cleveland’s playoff berth in the 2002 season marks their only postseason appearance since the team returned to the NFL in 1999. The addition of Odell Beckham Jr. to an offense led by Baker Mayfield has helped make the Browns AFC North favorites after a 7-8-1 campaign. 

Chicago Bears: Yes -110, No +110

The Bears came out of nowhere to win the NFC North last season, going from five wins in 2017 to a 12-4 record in 2018. Chicago did so with one of the best defenses the NFL has seen in the last decade. Mitchell Trubisky and Co. are looking to rebound after being upset at home on Wild-Card Weekend.
