New York Jets Super Bowl Odds 2022

New York Jets Super Bowl Odds 2022

Jets fans have suffered for many years, and last year was no different. New York finished the 2020 season with a 2-14 record and missed drafting wunderkind, Trevor Lawrence. The pain continues for Jets’ fans. However, there is another talented quarterback that they were able to draft by the name of Zach Wilson. While Wilson didn’t play in a major conference, he showed eye-popping arm strength and playmaking ability with his arm.

The Jets also had a super busy free agency and draft that should be considered a great success. Offensively, New York helped out Wilson by signing Tevin Coleman, Keelan Cole, and Corey Davis and drafting solid offensive lineman Alijah Vera-Tucker. Jamison Crowder is also still in New York, and when paired with Davis and Cole, the Jets have a solid trio of receivers.

Offseason Changes

Jets fans should be happy with this off-season. New York focused on improving offensive talent to help its shiny new quarterback. It also made big moves on the other side of the ball to help its struggling defense. While this will not completely change the outlook for the New York Jets in 2021, it does help their future down the line.

It’s no mystery what the most significant off-season change is for the New York Jets: Zach Wilson. Wilson had a terrific career at BYU, and the Jets didn’t feel like they could let him slip out of their hands with the number two pick. After the Jets whiffed with the Sam Darnold pick, they certainly put in the hours and effort to ensure that Wilson can lead their team. They will need to be patient, though; it’s rare for any quarterback to immediately turn around a losing franchise, especially one that went 2-14 the year prior.

The Jets are not letting Zach Wilson start his rookie year without any weapons. They signed running back Tevin Coleman and receivers Keelan Cole and Corey Davis. Davis and Cole are each excellent options and, when combined with Jamison Crowder, make for a very tough trio to contain.

Another massive move for the Jets was hiring former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh to be their head coach Saleh is one of the better defensive minds in the NFL, so this was a solid hire. While it is unlikely that Saleh can change the culture entirely in his first year, this hire should still make fans feel bullish about the Jets’ future.

This year, protection for Wilson was also a pivotal aspect of the draft as the Jets spent their first-rounder on Alijah Vera-Tucker, a highly touted offensive lineman out of USC. Vera-Tucker should help protect Wilson for years to come, and I’m sure Wilson was pleased with that draft pick. However, Vera-Tucker can’t protect Wilson on pass plays alone, and the O-line may struggle in pass protection this year.

Lastly, the Jets beefed up their struggling defense by signing Jarrad Davis, Carl Lawson, Sheldon Rankins, and Vinny Curry. All of these players should provide immediate relief to a unit that needs depth in the worst way.

Jets Odds Analysis

The New York Jets currently boast odds of +12500 to win the Super Bowl. Those odds put them in a tie with the Philadelphia Eagles, Cincinnati Bengals, and Jacksonville Jaguars for the third-lowest odds to win the Super Bowl. They are heavy favorites to miss the playoffs at -675, while they are an underdog (+475) to make them. The Jets have an astonishingly low possibility of winning the AFC East at +2000. Lastly, the win total is set at six games, where the over and under both sit at -110.

New York’s win total at six games is an exciting bet. I have the Jets winning six games exactly so this bet would be a push by my prediction. However, I wouldn’t be shocked if the Jets were able to pull out seven wins. They play a pretty weak schedule, including the Carolina Panthers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans, Atlanta Falcons, and Cincinnati Bengals. All of those games are very winnable, and frankly, the rest of their schedule isn’t overwhelming either besides playing the Buffalo Bills twice.

Reasons Why Jets Win Super Bowl

If Zach Wilson has the most remarkable rookie season for a quarterback ever and head coach Robert Saleh could make the Jets the most brutal defense in the league, then maybe the Jets will make the playoffs. After that, it would be tough for them to rattle off several wins against the highest caliber teams in the NFL. The fact that the Jets currently hold +2000 odds to win the AFC East should be pretty telling in the possibility of something like this happening. While the Jets won’t win the Super Bowl this year, in all likelihood, they are trending in the right direction after an explosive off-season that saw them making considerable additions to their offensive and defensive units. Don’t waste your money throwing a flier Super Bowl future bet on the Jets this year. However, in the coming years, it may not be such a bad bet.

Reason Why Jets Don’t Win Super Bowl

The Jets are starting a rookie quarterback, and it is no shocking revelation that there has never been a rookie quarterback that has led their team to a Super Bowl. The youngest quarterback to win a Super Bowl was Ben Roethlisberger, who won at the age of 23 in his second year in the league. What Big Ben had that Zach Wilson doesn’t have, is a solid team. Ben was marvelous in his first few years, but he could not have done it without the Steelers’ squad.

Additionally, the Jets ranked 24th in opponent yards per game last year and boasted one of the worst secondaries in the NFL. The addition of head coach Robert Saleh, who was the Niners’ defensive coordinator before, will undoubtedly improve the defense. However, it is doubtful that this defense will do a complete 180 and become so dominant that it makes up for all issues mentioned above.
