    Nevada oddsmaking firm CG Technology has set playoff odds for 21 NFL teams, giving the public a chance to vote up or down (with cash, of course) on a club’s postseason prospects.

    In 7-of-8 divisions, at least one club is better than a 50 percent shot to make the playoffs, per CG’s odds. The only division without a club rated at least even-money to make the postseason is the AFC North, where the Steelers (+120) have been bet to favoritism.

    The Patriots (-440) are the strongest favorites to make the playoffs on CG’s odds, with the Broncos (-400) and Seahawks (-250) the next shortest prices. Bettors seeking to back New England to make the postseason would have to wager $44 to win $10 on a successful gamble.

    Here are the team odds offered at the CG sports books as of Thursday. The implied odds were calculated using the team’s current price:

    AFC East
    New England Patriots: Yes: -440. No: +340. (Implied odds of making playoffs: 81.5 percent).
    Miami Dolphins: Yes: +300. No: -400. (Implied odds of making: 25.0 percent).

    AFC North
    Pittsburgh Steelers: Yes: +120. No: -150. (Implied odds of making playoffs: 45.5 percent).
    Cincinnati Bengals: Yes: +135. No: -165. (Implied odds of making playoffs: 42.6 percent).
    Baltimore Ravens: Yes: +160. No: -190. (Implied odds of making playoffs: 38.5 percent).

    AFC South
    Indianapolis Colts: Yes: -175. No: +145. (Implied odds of making playoffs: 63.6 percent).
    Houston Texans: Yes: +225. No: -275. (Implied odds of making playoffs: 30.8 percent).

    I can't see a scenario where they get to the playoffs. No QB. Disgruntled #1 wr. Lose of Ben Tate. Can't see it.

    Outside of Andre Johnson and JJ Watt Houston has little to hang their hat on. Their O-Line is solid, but with no QB whats that matter? DeAndre Hopkins could be special, but so far he's just been good.

    Not that we're a ton better, but IMO we are in fact better.
