New York Jets Regular Season Win Total Betting Odds for 2012

The New York Jets regular season win total betting odds for 2012 were coming in at OVER/UNDER 8.5 with the OVER favored at -135 at BetOnline.


Seriously folks, are the Jets going to be THAT bad this upcoming season that the oddsmakers are lacking confidence New York can go over .500?   The UNDER incidentally pays slightly better than EVEN odds.

We can look at four home games the Jets should win easily:  Buffalo in Week 1, Indianapolis, Miami and Arizona.

The Jets should be able to take at least one of two home games against either Houston or San Diego, the later of which could prove meaningless in Week 16.  Really, New York should win both of these games but we’ll lean conservatively here. 

On the road they have a chance in Miami, Seattle, St. Louis, Jacksonville, Tennessee and even Buffalo during the final week should the Jets actually be playing for something. 

We at like New York’s chances of winning 9 or more regular season games.  After all, they’ve done it in 3 of the last 4 seasons (2011 was a .500 showing). 

We do have our reservations nonetheless.  Mark Sanchez is going to be under tremendous pressure to perform here.  It won’t be easy.  The Jets will be lacking in their rushing attack and passing game.  In past years, New York has relied heavily on its defense and this season, there will be less depth.

Austin Ekeler Next Team Odds

Chargers free agent Austin Ekeler is favored to had to the Baltimore Ravens next season, but the payout is $500 on a $100 bet, meaning this one is hardly a "lock".  The Eagles land him at 6-1 odds.
