2017 NFL Strength of Schedule – Based on Vegas SB Odds

Here’s a look at the 2017 NFL Strength of Schedule based on the opponents for each team and their odds of winning the Super Bowl.

While not perfect, basing Strength of Schedule on Vegas odds helps to account for the roster changes that occur as well as team performance, instead of just focusing on the 2016 win percentage of each team’s opponents.

  • The Super Bowl odds were provided by Bovada.lv
  • 1” is the hardest schedule and “32” is the easiest schedule
  • “Avg. Opp. SB Odds” is the average opponent Super Bowl odds ranked from 1-32. For example: If a team’s “Avg. Opp. SB Odds” is 14, it means this is equivalent to playing the 14th best team over the course of a full season. You can see how tight S.O.S is between No. 1 – 32, so a few good/bad matchups can really swing things quite a bit.
