AFC / NFC Wild Card Teams in 2020/21 Picks and Predictions

2020 / 2021 has already shaped up to be a unique season due to the worldwide pandemic, and it hasn’t even started yet.

The NFL has changed the way it will run its playoffs this postseason, now allowing more wild card teams and decreasing the number of first-round byes, this the result of the most recent collective bargaining that was put in place during the offseason.

For AFC take the Cleveland Browns, because though their new leadership may keep them from winning the division outright over the Baltimore Ravens, their talent level should get them to the postseason as a wild card at least. For NFC take the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because with the GOAT and a GRONK and one of the best receiver corps in the league, this team is finally going somewhere, and a wildcard spot is a perfect place to start.

Our Picks:

AFC: Cleveland Browns +2500

NFC: Tampa Bay Buccaneers +400

Keep in mind the odds in these wagers will shift plenty of times before the actual games are played, so be sure to check back here often to get all the latest numbers.

The AFC North Dominates This Wager

Even football fans backing teams from other divisions have their eyes on the AFC North this season, mostly because every single team in that division has a quarterback story worth following.

From the Cincinnati Bengals’ rookie Joe Burrow and the Baltimore Ravens’ and Cleveland Browns’ third-year returning QBs Lamar Jackson and Baker Mayfield, all the way to the now healthy and returning former Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steeler “Big” Ben Roethlisberger.

The odds have it that the Ravens will return as the division champ this season, but the Browns have certainly spent the entire offseason doing their best to right what was wrong with their uber-talented football team last year.

Seattle More Likely to Win Wild Card Than 49ers

Chances are both the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers will play football this upcoming January, the question is which one of them will advance as the NFC West champions and which team will be forced to “settle” for a wildcard spot.

The most recent NFL draft was productive for last year’s Super Bowl runner up 49ers, the front office adding wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk and defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, two powerful picks who should prove to be immediate contributors.

The Seahawks will also have rookie help this upcoming season from linebacker Jordyn Brooks and tight end Colby Parkinson, two solid picks who could have easily gone higher in the draft that the Seahawks’ organization lucked out on.

The Pandemic Postseason Will be Unique

How the 2020 / 2021 NFL season ends up looking is anyone’s guess, but chances are it isn’t going to appear at all familiar to those used to watching – from empty stadiums and missing players, the total number of changes won’t be known until the regular season unfolds.

The playoffs will be unique this season for those same reasons, but also because the most recent collective bargaining agreement addressed some of the major issues teams had with the way the postseason was run.

The main change that will have a tremendous effect on who eventually makes it to the Super Bowl will be in the decrease in the number of first-round playoff byes from two down to one since many of the prior champions were the direct beneficiary of that way of doing things.
