The New York Jets went into the 2017 NFL betting season with a pathetic win total of 3 games. The betting public steamed that number up half a game to 3.5 where it closed before New York lined up against the Bills in Buffalo Week 1. They went on to lose that game and another at Oakland in humiliating fashion the following week making those that faded the steam extremely happy.
Unfortunately, that’s where the fun ended for under bettors. The Jets went on to log three straight wins against the Dolphins, Jaguars and Browns and only needed one win over the season’s final 12 weeks to cash over bettor’s tickets. When the dust cleared, the J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets went on to tally two more triumphs and finished the season with a 5-11 straight up record. For good measure, Todd Bowles’ troops also proved to be a lucrative investment on the NFL odds on a weekly basis in going 9-6-1 against the spread.
Even though he got plenty more from a roster that many expected would be the worst in the league, Bowles enters 2018 with the fifth shortest odds for the “First Coach to Get Fired Prop” at +1289. Upper management has already come out and said this isn’t a playoffs or bust type season. With that, you’re likely better off taking a Bic to the many you want to throw down on Bowles to be the first coach canned.
It’ll be another rebuilding year for the Jets. They’ve already went separate ways with a number of highly paid veterans, and because of it, will have a boatload of money to throw around in free agency heading into 2019.
Josh McCown will once again lead the offense into battle off throwing for nearly 3,000 yards and an 18:9 TD/INT ratio over 13 starts. He is this team’s QB1 regardless of the fact that Teddy Bridgewater was brought into back him up, and Sam Darnold was selected in the first round of the draft. The only way either see’s playing time is if the injury bug gets ahold of him; something that has a high chance of occurring.
Either way, the offense will look completely different with Isaiah Crowell and Thomas Rawls in the backfield. Spencer Long was a big signing at the center position, while Terrell Pryor could breathe new life into the passing game if he can turn the page on last year’s disastrous season in Washington.
The defense looks extremely sound in the back seven. Morris Claiborne now gets to play alongside Trumaine Johnson at cornerback, while Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye continue to do their things at the safety positions. If the front seven can find a way to get pressure on opposing quarterbacks and stop the run, vast improvement could occur on this side of the ball.
There are a many “big ifs” in New York this season. The division could once again end up being one of the worst in the AFC if not the league. Even so, I don’t expect the Jets to surpass their season win total a second straight season, but the team should lay the groundwork needed to improve down the road.
