The NFL season is less than three months away, and while we navigate this dead-spot in the offseason, it’s a great time to look at NFL win total futures.
One of the worst teams in 2020 won’t likely see much uptick in quality, that being the New York Jets. While no one is rushing to the counter to place their Super Bowl bets on the Jets, there’s still some betting value to be had as it relates to New York.
Let’s break down the New York Jets, along with their win total and a betting prediction for the 2021 season so you can plan your bets against their NFL Team Totals odds.
New York Jets Odds Analysis and Betting Prediction for the 2021-22 Season
Drafting Their Franchise Quarterback
The Jets are hoping Wilson is finally the guy to bring a winning culture to New York. Wilson offers an intriguing blend of arm strength and athleticism.
Darnold was shipped off to Carolina this offseason for a few draft picks.
New York’s Win Total and Super Bowl Odds
You can bet New York futures on MyBookie today, with current Super Bowl odds at +8000. It’s very unlikely that Zach Wilson turns this franchise around in just one year.
The Jets win total over/under is currently set at 6.5 wins for the season. Remember, there are now 17 games in the NFL regular season.
New York’s 2021 Schedule
The Jets have had trouble in the AFC East for years, and it’s hard to see their luck suddenly changing. The Bills are one of the best teams in the NFL, the Dolphins could be a playoff team if Tua Tagovailoa puts it together, and the Patriots are always a threat.
The Jets did finish in the last place, meaning they draw a few teams that shouldn’t be overly menacing this season. A complete list of teams they will face in 2021:
- Buffalo Bills (x2)
- Miami Dolphins (x2)
- New England Patriots (x2)
- Indianapolis Colts
- Tennessee Titans
- Houston Texans
- Jacksonville Jaguars
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- New Orleans Saints
- Carolina Panthers
- Atlanta Falcons
- Cincinnati Bengals
- Denver Broncos
- Philadelphia Eagles
The only games on this schedule that feel like a win is on the table are the Texans, Jaguars, and Bengals. There are some tough teams on this schedule, including the defending champions and a pair of AFC South playoff teams.
The Jets remain one of the NFL’s weaker teams, and this schedule does them no favors. The under for their win total feels safe.
Betting pick: Bet under 6.5 wins for New York
The Final Word
The Jets attempted to strengthen their offense by signing wide receiver Corey Davis from the Titans and drafting Wilson, but this team has a ways to go before they’ll be competitive again.
The defense remains a liability, and the team lacks a proven contributor on either end. The bet here is that it will be another year near the top of the draft for the Jets. Lock your under picks in confidently for 2021.
