Favorite NFL futures bets ahead of Week 13

Things are trending in a decent direction on a number of fronts — the Tennessee Titans, Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks have taken commanding leads in their division, the Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins are getting closer to playoff berths, and the Philadelphia Eagles are struggling their way to a 3-7-1 record.  The pickings are slim as we move on to Week 13, but there may be some value in the NFC playoff picture.

Our futures bet after Week 12

Minnesota Vikings -270 to miss the playoffs

We make this -300, which is about as good of a value as you’re going to get this time of year.  While this number very well could be cheaper next week, the Vikings are not above losing outright to a team like the Jaguars as 9.5-point favorites at home (they basically did the same thing against the Cowboys just two weeks ago). 

With road games against Tampa and New Orleans left on Minnesota's schedule, 8-8 appears to be the expectation here. And while that's likely better than San Francisco and Chicago, it won’t be enough to catch the Cardinals, who face two NFC East teams in their last five contests.
