Fans of the Green Bay Packers have to love how the 2023 NFL season went. Jordan Love lived up to expectations and the Packers not only made the playoffs, but upset the Dallas Cowboys in the opening round.

If any fans have concerns about the Packers getting back to the postseason in 2024, their worries should be put at ease when they find out how much faith oddsmakers have in their chances. DraftKings Sportsbook has released opening odds for all 32 teams to make the playoffs next season.

Let's take a look at the odds and then I'll break down Green Bay's chances of returning to the playoffs for the second straight season.

Packers odds to make NFL Playoffs

Vegas expects Packers to return to postseason in 2024

A month into the offseason, the Packers' odds to return to the playoffs are set at -190 at DraftKings Sportsbook. If you translate those odds to implied probability, the Packers have a 65.52% chance of locking up a postseason berth.

Not only did the Packers get better as last season went on, but they had the youngest roster in the NFL with an average age of just over 25 years old. That means we should expect nothing but further improvement from Green Bay heading into 2024. The sky is the limit for this young roster, most notably Jordan Love, who is amongst the top MVP contenders according to the odds.

The Packers' have already had a busy offseason. We'll see how the move to sign Josh Jacobs and move on from Aaron Jones will pan out, but what we do know is they managed to snag one of the best defensive players that were available in free agency in Xavier McKinney.

Unlike most other teams, the Packers don't need to do much to improve in 2024. Their roster is so young that the same players who excelled last season should improve with another offseason under their belt.
