NY Jets 2020 Schedule & Game Odds

The New York Jets are a storied franchise that has its roots in the AFL.

They were known as the New York Titans from 1960-62. After becoming the Jets, they won their only Super Bowl after the 1968 season. They compiled an 11-3 season, defeated the Oakland Raiders 27-23 in the AFC Championship game, and then did the same to the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III on Jan. 12, 1969. It is viewed as one of the most famous games in NFL history, thanks in part to Joe Namath, the Jets’ star quarterback.

The Jets have a lifetime record of 420-513, including the post-season. They have not reached the playoffs since 2010, however.

How did the Jets do last year?

The Jets raised expectations of a good 2020 season by rallying from a 1-7 start to finish 7-9. It was a 6-2 second half of the season, best in the AFC East.

They were 31st of 32 NFL teams offensively, with 276 points. They were 16th defensively, allowing 359 points.

Two games likely kept the Jets out of their first playoff appearance since 2010. Had they won both, the Jets would have finished 9-7, a mark that did create a playoff berth for the Tennessee Titans.

In the opening game of the season, they had a 16-0 late third-quarter lead at home against the Buffalo Bills but suffered a 17-16 loss. Later, they were defeated by the then-winless Cincinnati Bengals.

They also suffered a significant early-season injury, when quarterback Darnold missed significant time because of mononucleosis. By the time he returned, they were 0-4.

On the flip side, the Jets scored two significant victories. One came against the New York Giants in the battle of the home stadium and another occurred against the Dallas Cowboys.

NY Jets team records

  • Passing: Joe Namath, 27,057 yards, 170 touchdowns
  • Receiving: Don Maynard, 11,732 yards, 88 touchdowns. He was also the first player ever signed by the franchise.
  • Rushing: Curtis Martin, 10,302 yards, 58 touchdowns

How to bet on player props and futures odds

The odds listed above are all moneyline wagers. It is one of the most common betting markets on sports, followed closely by point spreads and totals (over/under). But other Jets betting markets are available, too.

Prop betting

Proposition bets, or props, pertain to most everything beyond the moneyline wager — which is the straight outcome of the game — and the point spread.

Because of prop wagering, a gambler can select from literally hundreds of bets on every Jets game. In most cases, these bets are specific to a particular athlete’s ability to reach a certain benchmark. Prop bets also often ask a question about a team or player’s chances in a single game or during a season.

Here are some of the most prominent prop bets you might see for Jets games:

  • Total individual yards, over-under: This can be rushing yards for Bell or passing yards for Darnold. This often looks like an over-under of between 80-100 yards for a running back and 300 yards for a quarterback. It’s also a good cross-reference for your handicapping about the game. If you see a Bell prop of 50-75 yards, for example, oddsmakers may expect the Jets to be passing more. Is that because they will be playing catch up?
  • Winner for each half: Separate bets for the first and second halves. It’s tricky. The winning team in a game may still lose a half.
  • Will the game be tied at halftime? It happens every now and then. The San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins played a scoreless first half in one game last year. It paid 10-1 at most books. You would be surprised at how few NFL games, even those with a point spread of less than a field goal, are tied at the half. That’s why it pays.

Futures betting

This wager literally concerns a result that will be determined in the distant future. It’s essentially a season-long prop for a team or individual.

These bets are popular regarding team win totals, individual-yardage numbers, the MVP race, or a head-to-head matchup. Here are three examples of futures betting for the NY Jets:

  • Jets to win the Super Bowl: For the Jets, that may mean +8000, or 80-1 to win the Super Bowl. That’s the vicinity in which they are placed at most New Jersey online sportsbooks.
  • Regular season win total for the Jets: The Jets have an over-under of 6.5 this year. It’s an exciting prop because it gives a gambler action every week, even those in which the player doesn’t have a good feel for one individual game. The season-long prop lets a player track how the bet is measuring up throughout the year.
  • Total passing yards for Sam Darnold: This is a combination of a prop and a futures bet, but it gives you action every week, too. A lot is riding on the play-calling. And if you have the over, you’d love a couple of games to go into overtime.

Betting tips for Jets 2020 season

Of course, any Jets bet requires a little forethought and knowledge about the team, its players, and the overall growth of the franchise. Here are a three tips to consider when betting on the Jets:

  1. Watch the win total line. The Jets have good value on the win-total line relative to performance. They won seven games last year and are projected for 6.5 across NJ online sports betting sites. If they just match last year’s efforts, they will hit the over. The Jets were 6-2 in the second half of last year, which appears to be overlooked on this prop. There is also good reason to believe they can win at least one more game this year. Darnold missed three games last year because of mononucleosis. Bell averaged a meager 3.2 yards per carry last year, one of the lowest in his career because the team did not block well for him and lacked other weapons. But this is his second year with the team and there could be some more comfort with the system.
  2. The Darnold prop. He’s projected to hit 3,600 yards, that’s less than Heisman Trophy-winning Joe Burrow, who has yet to play in the NFL and will be a Bengal. Darnold’s average number is 225 yards a game, which is low. The risk in the over bet is that he gets hurt, but you can never be fully shielded from that anyway.
  3. The Bell prop. Over-under of 1,200 yards? Not much different than last year, when he hit 1,250. That’s still about 500 yards a season shy of what the team thought they would get from him. The Bell rushing prop is over-under 800 yards, which is modest. Last year he was quite modest in that regard, with 789.

Jets 2020 draft picks

Here are the Jets’ top picks in the 2020 NFL Draft.

  • Round 1 — Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville
  • Round 2 — Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor
  • Round 3 — Ashtyn Davis, S, California and Jabari Zuniga, DE, Florida
  • Round 4 — La’Mical Perine, RB, Florida; James Morgan, QB, Florida International; and Cameron Clark, OT, UNC Charlotte
  • Round 5 — Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia
  • Round 6 — Braden Mann, P, Texas A&M

The Jets have not fared well in the draft in the last decade. As their fans pine for picks like Joe Namath, Al Toon, Mark Gastineau, Mo Lewis, and Nick Mangold from years past, the Jets have not been able to use the draft to get back to the playoffs.

But there is optimism about this year’s group. Here are some of the drafted players of note from the last 10 years:

  • 2018: Sam Darnold
  • 2018: Quinnen Williams
  • 2017: Jamal Adams
  • 2016: Darron Lee
  • 2015: Leonard Williams
  • 2013: Dee Milliner
  • 2011: Muhammad Wilkerson

Jets’ quarterbacks over the last 20 years

In 2018, Sam Darnold became the starting quarterback for the NY Jets football team. He still retains that position in 2020.new york jets

But in the last 20 years, there were some good and not-so-good names to hold that role. Some starting quarterbacks for the Jets only lasted a year. Here is a list of the Jets’ starting quarterbacks in the last two decades:

  • 2017: Josh McCown — A short-lived starter, he now plays for the Philadelphia Eagles as a backup quarterback.
  • 2015-2016: Ryan Fitzpatrick — May have made the Jets the smartest team in the league. He’s from Harvard.
  • 2013-2014: Geno Smith/Michael Vick — Two running quarterbacks, but little success.
  • 2009-2012: Mark Sanchez — Took the Jets to the AFC championship game in 2010.
  • 2008: Brett Favre — A short-lived run for one of the league’s star players. Favre would later move to the Minnesota Vikings before retiring.
  • 2002-2007: Chad Pennington — Longest reign as quarterback; led team to playoffs in 2002, 2004, and 2006.
  • 2000-2001: Vinny Testaverde — Guided team to a playoff appearance in 2001.

Most Notable Head Coaches

The Jets have had some high-profile head coaches, including a Super Bowl winner. Only one of them, Bill Parcells, has a winning record of any coach who lasted more than one year. He fashioned a mark of 29-19 between 1997-99. Parcells previously guided the New York Giants to two Super Bowl championships.

Rex Ryan was a fan favorite for his refreshing candor to fans and sports media. He finished 46-50 with the Jets between 2009-14 but got them very close to an AFC title in 2010, when the Jets lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers, 24-19. Ryan’s father, Buddy, was an assistant coach with the Jets when they won the Super Bowl.

Weeb Ewbank hit a 71-77 mark with the Jets between 1963-73, but he also brought them the big one. It was Ewbank’s Jets who dismantled the Colts in Super Bowl III. Ewbank has the most lifetime wins of any Jets coach.

Lou Holtz, the famed Notre Dame coach, did not fare well in the NFL. He was 3-10 with the Jets in 1976 and resigned during the last week of the season.

Adam Gase is the 2020 Jets coach. He debuted at 7-9 in 2019.

New York Jets FAQ

Who owns the Jets?

The New York Jets were owned by Harry Wismer from 1960-62 when they were the New York Titans. A five-member syndicate headed by Sonny Werblin purchased the team for $1 million in 1962, re-named them the Jets and held the reigns from 1963-67.

One of the members, Leon Hess, eventually bought out all the partners. He secured the final 50% for $10 million in the early 1980s, becoming sole owner of the team.

The value had skyrocketed to $635 million when Woody Johnson purchased the Jets in 2000. His brother Christopher Johnson became a co-owner in 2017.

Werblin was the most high-profile of the owners, signing Joe Namath to a then-unheard-of four-year contract of $427,000 in 1965. It put the Jets on the map and Namath would lead them to the team’s only Super Bowl.

How many Super Bowls have the Jets team won?

Just one. The Jets captured the Super Bowl on Jan. 12, 1969, defeating the Baltimore Colts 16-7 in Super Bowl III. They have not returned to the Super Bowl since.

How much are Jets tickets?

The average ticket price last year was $121. Numbers have been reported anywhere from $8 to $1,192.

How many Jets’ numbers are retired?

Five numbers and one jacket. Retired numbers belong to Joe Namath (12), Don Maynard (13), Curtis Martin (28), Joe Klecko (73), and Dennis Byrd (90). There’s a retired jacket as well, worn by winningest coach Weeb Ewbank.

Will Jets games have fans in 2020?

As of July 2020, the Jets and Giants football franchises stated they won’t have fans at MetLife Stadium during the season.

Gov. Phil Murphy signed an executive order that, due to the ongoing public health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, outdoor public gatherings would be limited. Those limits will apply to events at MetLife Stadium until further notice.
