The Jets Are Already Being Disrespected As +300 Home Underdogs In Week 2

Recommended Posts

After finishing the 2019 campaign on a high note, sportsbooks are still hesitant to believe in the Jets.

  • MGM has the New York Jets listed as +300 underdogs at home against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2 of the 2020 season.
  • The Jets had an impressive late season run after a slow start, going 6-2 over their last eight games.
  • New offensive weapons Breshad Perriman and rookie Denzel Mims could be key components to success in the 2020 season.
  • MGM Sportsbook may be undervaluing the Jets at home, even against the reigning NFC Champions.

Hot 2019 Finish

The New York Jets have had a rough go of it in recent years. However, there are some bright spots on the young roster in the process of rebuilding. With quarterback Sam Darnold missing three games due to mono, the Jets began the season with an abysmal 1-7 record. When Darnold returned, things quickly and silently turned around, as the team went 6-2 to finish the year.

Most importantly, we saw how the team progressed as Darnold developed. The quarterback finished the year with 19 touchdowns over 13 games; best of all, 10 of the passing touchdowns were while he was under pressure (league-high). New York improved the offensive line to help the development of the young quarterback over the offseason.

New Faces

The Jets had an offseason that screamed “ebuild. Most notably, we saw them trade away their disgruntled young star, safety Jamal Adams, for an impressive haul of two future first-round picks. Although the team’s offseason is highlighted by a major subtraction, the Jets made some great additions through free agency and the draft.

The team reinforced their offensive line with the signings of Josh Andrews, Connor McGovern, George Fant, Greg Van Roten, and Alex Lewis. Additionally, the 11th overall pick in the draft, Mekhi Becton, will look to protect Darnold in the pocket and help Le’Veon Bell establish a more consistent running game.

The most exciting newcomers to the 2020 Jets offense are Breshad Perriman and rookie Denzel Mims. In weeks 13 through 17 of last season, Perriman broke out for over 500 receiving yards and logged just one drop on 65 targets. Meanwhile, at Baylor, Mims recorded 66 receptions for 1,020 yards and 12 touchdowns. The addition of two new deep threats to replace Robby Anderson look promising for Adam Gase and Darnold’s passing offense.

Week 2 Against The Reigning NFC Champs

The San Francisco 49ers were a force to be reckoned with last season. As the 49ers choked away the Super Bowl, the 7-9 Jets were at home watching on the couch. As a result, sportsbooks such as MGM, are undervaluing the Jets and the point spread +300 to defeat the 49ers in New York.

Last season, as home underdogs, the Jets were an impressive 4-2 against the spread (ATS). The 49ers, as away favorites, were 1-2. Additionally, against non-conference teams, New York fared rather well, going 3-1 ATS. With new additions to the offensive line, as well as the passing game, we can expect to see a revamped offense led by a more experienced Darnold next season. This team certainly isn’t receiving the credit that they deserve and are flying under the radar as of right now.

I don't think Deebo Samuel will be ready & GW will shut down their run game. Last year Mostert & Samuel went off because of Kittle. 

Stop the run....double Kittle.

Let’s be honest. You have a super bowl contender going up against a team that traded away its best player and is sitting on a ton of cap space to rollover to next year. I’m certainly not laying $100 on the Jets unless I get great odds.

Oh Stop TE is not a premium position how could Kittle possibly have that much impact 

 

Yes that was sarcasm

Outside of KC & maybe the Ravens the entire league is blah. The Jets had no business beating the Cowboys last year, the Dolphins had no business beating the Pats in Gillette no less.

The Seahawks who the media constantly licks their balls lost 3 of their 4 final games & all 3 losses were in their own DIVISION! 

Jets get solid play out their Oline early, defense gels, Darnold feeling confident gets hot like he did vs Rogers his rookie year & next thing you know your on your way. It's all about the QB in this league & protecting him enough for him to perform. If your QB gets time, your in every game. 

How many times have backups looked like starters against us when we couldn't stop the run? With the rules in place in this league guys like Minshew will eat you up if they can stand there & deliver. Darnold is a great talent, unfortunately he not only played sick, he was afforded very little protection + lacked anybody that could get open quickly except Crowder.

"Disrespected" :-k :rolleyes:

Easy solution for that I hear.  I believe it's called "winning".

Why is recognizing the obvious considered disrespect?   The Jets don't deserve any respect until they earn it.  The Jets stink until they don't.

The 49ers will start their east coast trip with an L to the Jets, then take it out on the Giants the following week. Bet Jets week 2, then 49ers week 3.

Do the Niners have a new QB?😎

He rarely goes downfield. Jets have a good Dline, decent fast LBs that can tackle & enough guys to play Nickel & Dime.

Were you there the last time SF made that trip?  That was a massacre.

And that was the last Jets game for which I was in attendance, lol.

Respect is earned. They’ve done nothing in the last decade to earn it. Probably longer than that, honestly.

Key to that game will be giving Darnold time to throw against their pass rush. If they can do that we can win the game. Make SF a passing team and you have a great chance to win. SF will be so frustrated watching Mann pin them back inside their 20 all day! :)

Brand new OL of 5 new starters playing their first game together (after 1 preseason tune-up), facing Nick Bosa and Arik Armstead?

What could go wrong?

Already?  Pretty sure disrespecting the Jets is letter of the law in the land of the NFL. That said, the Jets have done nothing to earn any respect in the last 10 years so not sure why this would be even in the least bit surprising.

When will people realize the Vegas odds have little to do with what Vegas thinks of who will win but what they think the line is that betters would put equal money on both sides.

Because as healthy as the Jets were, as superior as the Jets roster was the wins should be erased.

Always interesting when Jets fans tell us why our wins really arent wins.  

A nice change from complaining about the losses.  

Not really. They count, but don't pretend its some indication of how great we played during the second half. We didn't play great. Its great we won, who hoo, but fantasy to pretend that we were good. Every game was full of terrible game plans, bad players and players giving up.

With no fans in the stands there is no home field advantage this year. So the spreads/ML in games will be skewed this year.

Let's be serious.

The "hot" finish was a mirage.

- Beat the Bills 3rd stringers in Week 17. Sam & Co still couldn't score more than 13 points against their backups.

- Beat the Steelers with Duck Hodges playing QB.

- Beat the Dolphins by 1 point with Fitzpatrick at QB.

- Lost to the worst team in the league by 16 points.

I still think the team will be better this year, but there is no dispresct here.  Oddsmakers just know that the "hot finish" was a joke.

I feel very disrespected by being a large home underdog to a SB team that gave the Chiefs all they could handle.

They indicate that the team stayed together, didn’t quit and won.  After sitting at 1-7 it was important to stay together and win games whether they were good by fans evaluations or not
