Bettors are all over the New York Jets’ odds in 2022
Sportsbooks are taking loads of money on the New York Jets this year in a few different ways.
It seems like the Jets always win the off-season. For Jets fans, this is usually the most fun and positive part of the year. Whether it is a massive amount of cap space available or a top pick in the NFL draft, the Jets always have ways to get better. Every year, fans convince themselves that the coming year will be different and that the Jets will make the playoffs for the first time since 2010.
Those dreams usually do not come to fruition. However, it seems this year might just be different according to NFL bettors.
David Purdum, an ESPN writer covering all things gambling, is reporting the Jets are attracting a lot of money in multiple different ways.
“More bets have been placed and more money wagered on the Jets to win over 5.5 games at DraftKings than on any other team’s win total,” Purdum wrote on the New York Jets. “The Jets have attracted more bets to win the AFC East at PointsBet Sportsbook than the favored Bills and more money than the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots combined.”
At DraftKings, the Jets are currently listed at +2200 odds to win the AFC East.
Purdum adds, “The Jets have received more bets to make the playoffs at Caesars Sportsbook than any other team.”
DraftKings has the Jets listed at +700 odds to make the playoffs. Only the Texans (+1600) and Falcons (+800) have worse odds.
Even after the Jets finished 4-13 last season, the Jets seem poised for a breakout season. They brought in quality veterans in free agency, including D.J. Reed and Laken Tomlinson, to mesh with the young nucleus of guys already on the roster.
Sauce Gardner, Garret Wilson, and Jermaine Johnson were all added in the first round of the NFL draft while Breece Hall and Jeremy Ruckert were added on day two. All of these young pieces should make a big impact come the start of the NFL season.
The Jets are headed in the right direction and have the pieces to compete for a playoff spot in 2022. Now it comes down to Robert Saleh and his coaching staff to put their players in the right position to succeed.
Whatever happens this year, Joe Douglas and Robert Saleh have NFL bettors feeling optimistic that this Jets team can be different.
