What Is the NFL Playoff Bracket?
The NFL Playoff bracket isn’t your typical bracket-style format that you may see in other sports like soccer or college basketball. Each side of the bracket represents the two conferences; the AFC and the NFC. Seven NFL teams from each conference make the NFL Playoff bracket.
After the Wild Card Round, teams are reseeded for the next round of the NFL Playoff schedule. The team that received the first-round bye plays the lowest remaining seed in the Divisional Round.
The Divisional Round dwindles the field down to two teams remaining per conference. Those teams play each other the following weekend in the Conference Championship with the winners advancing to the Super Bowl.
How Are They Used?
The NFL playoff picture uses the seeds to format the playoffs. Each side of the bracket contains seven seeds. The top four seeds are given to the teams that win their division. The order among the division winners is then decided by which team has the best record.
The remaining three spots are called Wild Card spots. Those spots are given to teams with the best record among non-division winners from the NFL 2023 schedule. The NFL playoff schedule is set ahead of time, but the exact matchups are TBD.
Betting on the NFL Playoffs
There are many avenues one can choose when deciding to bet on the NFL Playoffs. One of the most basic bets on the board is the moneyline. By betting the moneyline during an NFL Playoff game, you’re betting on who you think will win the game. Plain and simple
Betting the spread is one of the more popular bets to make on a football game. Betting the spread means you’re taking the favorite to win by more than that many points or for the underdog to win outright or lose by less than that many points.
Betting the total is another popular bet. When betting the total, you choose to bet on whether the total points will be more or less than that number.
You can also do more long-term bets, or futures. For example, one could bet on who they believe is going to win the Super Bowl from that point, or even who will win Super Bowl MVP. Other futures include Conference Championship winners and round of elimination.
If one doesn’t want to wager on games, there’s ways to bet on individual players with player props.
When betting a player prop like passing yards, you’ll choose whether you think that quarterback will throw for more or less yards than the number. Player props can be a fun way to bet if you don’t have a read on the game itself.
