Available spots for the ’19 NFL playoffs are dwindling. Some teams look to be backing into a plyoff spot while some teams have rounded into form but is it too late? Only time will tell with 1 week remaining.
In the AFC, the Chiefs, Pats, Chargers and Texans have all locked up a spot which leaves two spots left between four teams. The Ravens appear to have the most straightforward opportunity as they only need to win and they are in, in some form or fashion. On the flip side, the Pittsburgh Steelers have the longest shot but are definitely not out as they can make it with a win and Ravens loss.
The NFC is slightly less convoluted as five spots are locked up with two teams vying for the final position. The Saints, Rams, Bears, Cowboys, and Seahawks are in. That leaves the Vikings and Eagles with a chance. The Vikes are in with a win or an Eagles loss. Philadelphia needs a win AND a Viking loss to back in.
The Elldee Sports Best Bets went 2-2 this week after the Browns fell a point short to cover both of the losses, the spread and over. Oh well, you can’t win them all. We are rolling into the final week and a bunch of matchups with zero playoff implications so get ready for the wierdness factor to really peak. Until next week, good luck.
