Already, Gambling911.com is beginning its extensive NFL betting coverage even with three more months to go until the season kicks off.  Today, our Carrie Stroup looks at the New York Jets odds during the 2009-2010 season, more specifically, the Over/Under on the number of wins during the regular season.  As Carrie points out:  These new-look Jets have much to prove.

The New York Jets have a new coach and a new defense but it's the offense that still has oddsmakers questioning the team as the 2009 season approaches.

Sportsbook.com oddsmakers are listing the Jets at Over/Under 7 wins with the recently released Regular Season Wins futures odds.

The win totals are always a favorite offseason wager for football fans and Sportsbook.com has odds for every team and a complete list of futures wagers to hold bettors over until the start of the season.

When new head coach Rex Ryan moved from Baltimore to New York, he took with him some of the talent that helped make his Ravens' defense one of the best in the league.

Among the recruits from Baltimore are defensive lineman Marques Douglas, linebacker Bart Scott and safety Jim Leonhard. Scott was second on the Ravens last year with 82 tackles while Leonhard was third with 69 tackles.

The addition of these players should improve a defense that ranked 16th in the league with 329.4 yards of offense against per game but will that be enough to win in a tough AFC East division that includes the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills?

"No-one is going to question the defense but without a quarterback, it might not matter what the defense does," said Sportsbook.com spokesman, Dave Staley. "The chances of Mark Sanchez coming in and having a season like Matt Ryan had in Atlanta last year aren't good.

"Even if they go with Kellen Clemens, they'll still be a weak offensive team."

Not only are the Jets without a top tier quarterback, they lost wide receiver Laveranues Coles in free agency, leaving a big void in the catching game behind Jerricho Cotchery.

That does not bode well for a team that will be playing the Patriots, Bills and Dolphins twice this season.

"New York is going to need to score points to compete with these teams and I just can't see them matching up with these teams offensively," said Staley. "Unless the defense can be as dominant as the Ravens were last year and they can rely on the run game, they could have a hard time getting Over the seven victories."

The Division Champs from last year, the Dolphins have the toughest schedule in the league and are also listed at seven wins, with the Terrell Owens and the Bills at 7.5 wins.

New England leads the entire NFL with a regular season win total set at 11.5.
