New coach Robert Saleh joins the New York Jets aiming to retool the roster, especially on offense with a rookie quarterback. After years of instability within the organization, this is a chance for the Jets to set up new QB Zach Wilson for success by not putting pressure on him too early.
New York Jets Odds to Win the Super Bowl
The Jets enter the 2021 season with +10000 odds to win the Super Bowl. New York would need an accelerated rebuild to even make the playoffs, but bettors would be handsomely rewarded if the Jets make a longshot run at the NFL Championship.
Betting New York Jets Futures
New York is an underdog in the AFC East this season with division odds at +2100 to capture the division title. The Jets rebuilding status is why there are only two teams with worse odds than New York’s +490 to make the postseason this year.
The Jets have an over/under win total of six wins. New York will be lucky to take some wins from its six division games this season, and they also have to play the tricky NFC South this year. The Jets might be able to split their four games with the AFC South with the two weaker teams in that division coming on the back half of New York’s schedule. That leaves games with the Broncos, Bengals, and Eagles as opportunities for the Jets to capture more wins.
When it comes to the individual awards, the top choice is Zach Wilson. He’ll be in the mix for Offensive Rookie of the Year, no matter how the Jets perform as a team. Wilson is the third choice on the board at +700 odds to win NFL Rookie of the Year, which is very reasonable considering the situation he is in.
