Jets Win Total Flying Towards The Over

Despite Robert Saleh’s team tying for the league’s third-worst record last season, the betting market is expecting better results in the 2022 campaign.

Over at FanDuel Sportsbook, Jets over 5.5 wins (-160) is the biggest liability in the market. The handle is also four times the amount of the sportsbook’s second-highest liability — the Chicago Bears under 6.5 wins (-105).

There’s is a similar amount of enthusiasm at PointsBet, where Jets over 5.5 wins (-170) is receiving 85% of the total handle and ranks No. 2 in liability within that market. Only the Philadelphia Eagles over 9.5 wins (+100) is ahead of them.

The Jets’ Busy Offseason

Once free agency began in mid-March, the Jets upgraded half of their secondary by adding cornerback D.J. Reed and safety Jordan Whitehead. They reeled in ex-Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah, too, who generated the highest passer rating when targeted on third down last season. Uzomah played through a knee injury during Cincinnati’s Super Bowl 56 loss to the Rams.

But general manager Joe Douglas was praised most for what he accomplished in the draft, selecting cornerback Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner (Cincinnati), wide receiver Garrett Wilson III (Ohio State) and Jermaine Johnson III (Florida State) in the first round. New York even grabbed top running back prospect Breece Hall (Iowa State) with the No. 36 overall pick.

The draft hype certainly didn’t do anything to slow NFL betting in the New York market. Nevertheless, the pressure remains squarely on QB Zach Wilson’s shoulders. The 22-year-old tallied the fourth-lowest yards per attempt (6.1 YPP) as a rookie. His Jets are , among 10 NFL Week 1 underdogs playing at home. New York hosts the Ravens to open the season.
