If you squint hard enough, you can see NFL training camp, just over yonder. Thus, it’s perfectly natural that those who most wish to profit from the 2018 NFL season release a list of every team’s odds to make the 2018 NFL Playoffs.

That list makes the Jacksonville Jaguars narrow favorites over your Houston Texans for a playoff berth within the AFC South, with the Texans a significant favorite over the Titans and Colts in the division pecking order.

Looking at the AFC as a whole, only the Jaguars, Chargers, Patriots, and Steelers have better odds than the Texans of making the postseason in this analysis. If we stack the Texans up against the entire NFL, a mere eight teams have better odds of making the playoffs than Houston in this calculation.

Such is the power of Deshaun Watson.
