New York Jets Odds to Win the 2012 Super Bowl

The New York Jets odds to win the 2012 Super Bowl were set at 10/1.  Pretty good value if you ask us with a payout potential of $1000 on every $100 bet.  Also, don’t expect these odds to last as we get closer to the season, so G911.co suggests locking them in now.

Oddsmakers believe the Jets have a decent shot of winning the AFC East, posting +150 odds that would pay $150 for every $100 bet.  The only thing really getting in the way of this is how good a team New England is in 2011.  The oddsmakers also have New York a pretty good bet to win OVER 10 games at -125.  The UNDER pays around even odds.

The Jets will enter the 2011 season pretty unchanged over the past two seasons.  Whether that’s enough to get them over the hump remains to be seen.  It should be enough to get them over 10 regular season wins though.  It should be noted that a few of the veterans have departed during the offseason including Damien Woody and Tony Richardson.  Shaun Ellis and Jayson Taylor’s departures on defense may leave the biggest hole to fill.  Depth is a concern, especially with the NFL lockout cutting into crucial training camps.

On special teams there is the inconsistent Nick Folk, who will have to protect his job from the likes of Nick Novak.

Looking at the schedule we find that New York will start its season with two home games.  That’s the good news.  The bad news is they play a Dallas Cowboys team that closed with a second half winning record after an abysmal 1-7 start to last season.  One of the most unpredictable teams in the league, the Jacksonville Jaguars, come to town the following week.  In any given year, the Jaguars have the potential to head to the Super Bowl but never seem to meet expectations.  Good news for the Jets is that pundits have Jacksonville winning under .500 regular season games.  They may be right as there appears to be plenty of turmoil here.

On paper, the Jets should win these first two games.  They’ll need to as three difficult road games loom including the first in Oakland (perhaps winnable), followed by a game in Baltimore then New England.  One has to believe they can go 2-1 here but 1-2 seems the most likely scenario if depth ultimately becomes an issue, which it could this early in the season (as per what was discussed above pertaining to the lockout). 

They should beat Miami at home and could beat San Diego in the Meadowlands as well.  Gambling911.com sees a record of 5-2 coming into Buffalo after the bye week.

Assuming the Jets can take one of two New England games, the Broncos are as bad as anticipated (even at home) and the Redskins are still a mess, New York should hit their 10 wins before facing off against Kansas City, a team they should be able to beat in the Meadowlands.

After a game in Philadelphia, we say this team is 11-3.  Whether the remaining two games against the Giants and Dolphins matters remains to be seen but G911.co does see an OVER 10 on the regular season.

As far as the rest of the division goes, New England is at 1/2 odds to win it, Miami is at 10/1 odds and Buffalo is at 20/1 odds.
