The Green Bay Packers benefitted from a wild Week 17, and handled business against the Minnesota Vikings, to jump back into the No. 7 spot in the NFC with just one game to play in the regular season. 

Can Green Bay make the playoffs?

We have the latest odds and playoff scenarios for the Packers this season.

Packers playoff odds

The Packers are currently -190 at DraftKings Sportsbook to make the playoffs. That means that oddsmakers are giving the Packers a 65.52 percent chance of making the postseason – based on the implied probability. 

Green Bay controls its own destiny after the results in Week 17, so the team would have nobody to blame but itself if it can’t sneak into at least the No. 7 seed in the NFC. 

Packers playoff scenarios

The Packers will be the No. 7 seed if they beat the Chicago Bears and the Los Angeles Rams beat the San Francisco 49ers.

The Packers will be the No. 6 seed if they beat the Bears and the 49ers beat the Rams in Week 18.

There is a way for Green Bay to make the playoffs without winning in Week 18 as well. It requires:

  • A Minnesota Vikings loss to the Detroit Lions
  • A New Orleans Saints loss to the Atlanta Falcons
  • A Seattle Seahawks loss to the Arizona Cardinals

Packers playoff prediction

Chicago isn’t a pushover game, but Green Bay is at home against the Bears and is favored by three points. 

The Packers are 4-3 straight up at Lambeau Field this season, and they are coming off arguably their most impressive win of the season against Minnesota.
