2020 NFL PLAYOFF ODDS REPORT

Loading, please wait...

Revised as of 01/18/21, through Week 19.

Compiled by Mike Harris

The playoff odds report plays out the season 25,000 times. A random draw assigns each team a win or loss for each game. The probability that a team will be given a win is based on an equation which considers the current Weighted DVOA ratings of the two teams as well as home-field advantage. (DVOA ratings are explained here.)

Kansas City's rating does not include Week 17 and assumes Patrick Mahomes will start in the AFC Championship Game.
