NY Jets named NFL’s most popular bet to make playoffs in 2022


Recommended Posts

NFL bettors are loving what Joe Douglas and Robert Saleh accomplished this off-season.

Sportsbooks are taking loads of money on the New York Jets this year in a few different ways.

It seems like the Jets always win the off-season. For Jets fans, this is usually the most fun and positive part of the year. Whether it is a massive amount of cap space available or a top pick in the NFL draft, the Jets always have ways to get better. Every year, fans convince themselves that the coming year will be different and that the Jets will make the playoffs for the first time since 2010.

Those dreams usually do not come to fruition. However, it seems this year might just be different according to NFL bettors.

David Purdum, an ESPN writer covering all things gambling, is reporting the Jets are attracting a lot of money in multiple different ways.

“More bets have been placed and more money wagered on the Jets to win over 5.5 games at DraftKings than on any other team’s win total,” Purdum wrote on the New York Jets. “The Jets have attracted more bets to win the AFC East at PointsBet Sportsbook than the favored Bills and more money than the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots combined.”

At DraftKings, the Jets are currently listed at +2200 odds to win the AFC East.

Purdum adds, “The Jets have received more bets to make the playoffs at Caesars Sportsbook than any other team.”

DraftKings has the Jets listed at +700 odds to make the playoffs. Only the Texans (+1600) and Falcons (+800) have worse odds.

Even after the Jets finished 4-13 last season, the Jets seem poised for a breakout season. They brought in quality veterans in free agency, including D.J. Reed and Laken Tomlinson, to mesh with the young nucleus of guys already on the roster.

Sauce Gardner, Garret Wilson, and Jermaine Johnson were all added in the first round of the NFL draft while Breece Hall and Jeremy Ruckert were added on day two. All of these young pieces should make a big impact come the start of the NFL season.

The Jets are headed in the right direction and have the pieces to compete for a playoff spot in 2022. Now it comes down to Robert Saleh and his coaching staff to put their players in the right position to succeed.

I’m a bit dubious over the article tbqh. The whole thing reads more like a gambling advert than factual journalism but who knows.

Regardless, this means as little to me as the Saleh ranking thread does. It just doesn’t mean anything outside the proclivities of unrepentant gamblers. Winning isn’t a popularity contest on Fanduel lol.

Same thing every year. Everyone universally disgusted at the end of the season but once the off season rolls around, anyone who is skeptical is a troll hater fake fan.

could it be they have one of the largest fan bases in the nfl?  a lot of fans bet for their teams to succeed.  i don't bet but i think the jets can make the playoffs this season.  it's all about them playing as a team and for the whole 60 minutes.

Just my opinion, but I very highly doubt that this is the case.

 

Me too. Jets fans are not being replaced faster than they are dying off. My kids aren’t Jets fans. There is very little draw here for youngsters to get behind. Honestly the fanbase is still riding the Broadway Joe wave. A fair percentage of our fan base are old timers who were drawn in by Joe, or their kids. The generation after that… the magic is ancient history.

All we have is hope. This doesn’t surprise me at all. Personally I’d never bet on the Jets. So I get disappointed AND lose money when they stink? No thanks.

You could bet on the Jets losing

Then you would either be rich or happy

But I guess you don't make much money on betting the Jets to lose, do you

I am a proponent of the emotional hedge. However, whenever I get so disgusted I bet against them, then they pull one out the ass outta spite. I don’t bet for or against them any longer. I’m too close to it.

Yuppp.  The most recent 1/3 of my life has contained 0 playoff appearances.  That's a lot of life experience right there.
