Week 2 was a learning experience for Zach Wilson and the New York Jets (0-2) as he threw four interceptions against the Patriots. How Wilson and rookie head coach Robert Saleh rebound will be instrumental to their season-long success. Their rebound opportunity is a tough one, though, as they travel to the Denver Broncos (2-0). The Jets are currently underdogs in the game.

For example, in their Week 5 matchup with the Arizona Cardinals, Crowder had a projected receiving total of 72.5 yards; those who thought Crowder would pull in 73 or more yards would bet the over and those who thought he would fail to record 73 yards would bet the under. Crowder totaled 116 receiving yards that week, giving over bettors a win.

How to bet on the New York Jets
The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:
- Texans -185
- Jets +310
The Jets are considered heavy underdogs in this matchup (indicated by +310), paying out $410 total for a $100 bet ($310 in winnings). The Texans are considered the favorite in this matchup, requiring a $185 bet to win $100 (plus the initial $100 bet). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.
Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:
- Rams -8.5 (-110)
- Jets +8.5 (-110)
In this example, Los Angeles is favored by 8.5 points, indicated by “-8.5.” If the Rams win the game 31-20, the Rams (-8.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Jets keep the game within nine and lose 23-17, the Jets (+8.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.
Point total (over/under)
The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, a Jets point total against the Las Vegas Raiders was 47.5. The final score resulted in a 31-28 Raiders win, resulting in 59 total points. Those who bet the over on the game would cash out.
In-play and live betting
Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Jets (-115) were favored against the Cowboys (+120) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Jets to win would win just $8.70.
However, say the Jets fell to a big 24-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to costly turnovers or special teams gaffes). Odds may swing in favor of the Cowboys, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Jets to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take New York (+130) at halftime and the Jets pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $8.70 (plus the initial $10 bet).
This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Cowboys (+120) in that game, but New York jumps out to a 10-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on New York (-170) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.
Parlays and teasers
You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.
Jets 2020 recap
Record ATS: 6-10
Over/under record: 7-9
The Jets were large and by far the favorite to secure the top overall draft pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and, at one point, the next team to go 0-16. New York was able to pull off a pair of equally-surprising upsets (Rams, Browns) late in the year to salvage a 2-14 record. However, most fans likely would have preferred to go 0-16 and have the first selection in April’s draft.
Their 6-10 record against the spread is a tale of thirds: first, the Jets were expected to be competitive this season, even giving them edges against early-season opponents. The second third of the year saw the Jets getting blown out worse and worse each week, losing their first seven games by more than 10 points. The final third of the year saw the Jets as frequently-massive underdogs, but New York was able to keep their last games close, resulting in a better-than-expected record ATS.
