The New York Jets were expected to finish with the worst record in the NFL last season. This was after getting rid of most of the best players on their roster. During the previous offseason. When it comes to betting on the New York Jets things look bleak. However, the team was able to exceed expectations last year. Also, the Jets were even contending for a playoff spot before faltering down the stretch.
This season, the Jets are expected to be much better. This is compared to where they were last year. After improving their roster, but their odds to win the Super Bowl still isn’t very good. Super Bowl 53 betting odds for the Jets are set at +10000.
The Jets are hoping that they have finally addressed their quarterback situation. Which has been a problem for them for a long time. Betting on the New York Jets can be profitable.
New York used the third pick in the NFL Draft to select USC quarterback Sam Darnold. The Jets are hoping will be their franchise quarterback for a long time. The team also brought back Josh McCown. McCown will be a mentor to Darnold and help him learn the ropes.
The Jets also got some insurance in case Darnold isn’t ready to start, signing former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to compete for the starting job.

The quarterback position isn’t the only thing the Jets improved during the offseason. The team upgraded its running back position by signing Isaiah Crowell and Thomas Rawls, and added depth to their wide receivers corps by signing Terrell Pryor.
They also improved their defense with the acquisition of former Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson, who had played under the franchise tag for the past two seasons. With Johnson and Morris Claiborne in the secondary, the Jets have a formidable defensive backfield.
The one thing the Jets failed to adequately address is their defensive line. They lost Muhammad Wilkerson, who signed with the Green Bay Packers after getting released by the Jets, and Kony Ealy, who signed with the Dallas Cowboys after a disappointing season in New York.
With the moves the Jets made, they should win more games than they did last year. But if they don’t improve their defense before the season starts, they will have a hard time winning more than eight games.
