Oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv have released prop odds surrounding the final two playoff spots that are up for grabs in the NFC. The Falcons, Packers, 49ers and Seahawks have clinched spots heading into Week 17 but the NFC East and the second wild card spot are still up for grabs.

Will the Bears make the playoffs? The odds for "Yes" are +140 while the odds for "No" are -180. Chicago is one of a few teams that doesn't hold its own destiny in its hands. The Bears need to beat the Lions on Sunday and have the Vikings lose to the Packers in order to clinch the sixth and final wild card spot.

Will the Cowboys make the playoffs? The odds for "Yes" are +150 while the odds for "No" are -200. If Dallas beats Washington on Sunday Night Football, then the Cowboys will win the NFC East and host a playoff game next weekend. If they lose, there's no scenario that has them clinching the sixth seed in the NFC.

Will the Vikings make the playoffs? The odds for "Yes" are +120 while the odds for "No" are -160. If they beat the Packers on Sunday then they'll clinch the final spot in the NFC and eliminate the Bears, Giants and the loser of the NFC East match up between the Redskins and Cowboys.

Will the Giants make the playoffs? The odds for "Yes" are +550 while the odds for "No" are -1000. New York has the worst odds to make the postseason because it needs to beat Philadelphia on Sunday and then have Minnesota, Chicago and Dallas all lose. One or two of those scenarios could happen but it's doubtful all four will.

Finally, will the Redskins make the playoffs? The odds for "Yes" are -300 while the odds for "No" are +200. If Washington beats Dallas on Sunday night then it will win the NFC East Division title and host a playoff game next week. If the Redskins lose, they can still clinch a wild card spot if the Vikings and Bears both lose.
