Which 0-2 team is most likely to make the playoffs according to the odds?

Despite the NFL schedule increasing from 16 to 17 games last season, no team that started 0-2 went on the make the playoffs. The last time a team started 0-2 and went on to make the playoffs was 2018. Since 2007, just 12 of 125 teams that started 0-2 went on to make the playoffs. Starting 0-2 isn’t a total death sentence, but it is pretty close.

What makes this fascinating is that three teams that made the playoffs last season have started the season 0-2. The Tennessee Titans were the No. 1 seed in the AFC while the Cincinnati Bengals represented the conference in the Super Bowl. The Las Vegas Raiders made the playoffs and then added arguably the best receiver in football. Now, all three teams are 0-2. What do oddsmakers think the chances are that any of these three teams rebound and end up making the playoffs?

All 0-2 teams are now favored to miss the playoffs

Not all 0-2 teams are made equally. The Atlanta Falcons were projected to be one of the worst teams in football. They have been more competitive than many expected, as evidenced by their 2-0 record against the spread, but they’re still 0-2 in the real standings. They are -3000 favorites to miss the playoffs, but they were always extreme long shots to make the playoffs.

The Carolina Panthers were also sizable favorites to miss the playoffs before the season began. They’ve opened the season by losing a pair of coin-flip games on late field goals. They could very easily be 2-0, but instead they are 0-2 and have let two winnable games go by the wayside. As a result, the Panthers are now -800 favorites to miss the postseason.

The three other 0-2 teams is where the intrigue begins.

Who are oddsmakers highest on?

Of the 0-2 teams, the team oddsmakers have most confidence in rebounding is Cincinnati. However, they’re still -175 favorites to miss the playoffs. Those odds suggest they still miss the playoffs almost 64% of the time. The Bengals are the first team in the Super Bowl era to lose both of their first two games…
