- Our staff pick: New York Jets to win “under” seven games in 2019 at +125 odds
It’s been an extremely topsy-turvy offseason for the New York Jets, who made some major splashes in free agency and then turned around and dumped their general manager. They also have a new coach in Adam Gase so there are a ton of moving pieces surrounding the organization.
In the end, the Jets’ success could come down to how well quarterback Sam Darnold develops and if the addition of some offensive weapons like running back Le’Veon Bell will lead to demonstrative improvement. The Jets are hoping to make some serious strides in 2019 although the oddsmakers have not placed their season win total too high.
New York Jets Season Win Total
The Jets’ over/under win total is set at seven games for the 2019 regular season. The “over” is the favorite at -145 odds while the “under” is the underdog at +125. So far the bettors believe like the Jets are more likely to finish with a record of .500 on the season moreso than flopping with six victories.
The Jets went 4-12 a season ago but that was not totally unexpected as they were in the midst of a rebuild. Some win-now moves in free agency are giving fans optimism.
Darnold had an up and down rookie season but finished strongly. He ended his debut campaign with 2,865 passing yards, 17 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Even though he didn’t put up numbers like Baker Mayfield, Darnold did not have as much talent around him. He needs to take a step forward or else the Jets will have no shot at surpassing seven victories.
Bell sat out all of last season with the Steelers and the Jets signed him to a lucrative contract in free agency. He is an elite threat both carrying the ball and catching it, and while it remains to be seen if the contract is worth it for the Jets, Bell should be a playmaker in 2019. The wide receiver group does not seem super dangerous and that could be an issue trying to move the ball through the air this year.
C.J. Mosley is a gifted player who was added in free agency and is expected to anchor the defense. The Jets tried to get outside linebacker Anthony Barr but he changed his mind on a verbal agreement and went back to the Vikings. The Jets took defensive tackle Quinnen Williams with the No. 3 overall pick in the draft as he is another key piece in 2019.
New York will play the Patriots, the Bills and the Dolphins two times apiece as their AFC East foes this season. Additionally, the Jets have a home schedule that features the Browns, Cowboys, Raiders, Giants and Steelers. Their other road games will come against the Eagles, Jaguars, Redskins, Bengals and Ravens.

The surprising firing of GM Mike Maccagnan seems to point to some dysfunction in the front office of the Jets. Gase reportedly wasn’t getting along with him and wasn’t thrilled about some of the moves made in free agency.
If that is true, it is not a good way at all to start the 2019 season. Darnold should be better this season but there are still too many holes on this roster. The Jets are not going to be as good as predicted, and with these odds, there is an easy choice on the Jets’ season win total.
There is going to be more losing than hoped once again for a team that has struggled to turn things around in the past several seasons.
