New York Jets Odds

new york jets

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’s viewed as one of the most famous games in NFL history, thanks in part to Joe Namath, the Jets’ star quarterback.

These Jets, however, have not reached the playoffs since 2010. Is this the year they reverse those fortunes? Check the live odds for each game below plus some more tips for betting on the Jets at New Jersey online sportsbooks.

Betting on the Jets

When it’s time to bet on the J-E-T-S, sportsbooks will be ready with odds for all of the top bet types. If you click on the NFL or football link at online and mobile sportsbooks, you’ll see all of the upcoming contests listed out with odds for the featured bet types. Example:

  • New England Patriots -220 -4.5 (-110) O 48.5 (-110)
  • New York Jets +180 +4.5 (-110) U 48.5 (-110)

For NFL betting, moneyline, point spread, and totals are huge drivers of action for each game on the docket. To place your bets, you just click on the odds that correspond with your choice and go from there. Here’s a closer look at how the big three bet types work.

What is the Jets Moneyline?

If you like to keep things simple, then moneyline betting is for you. The goal is to pick the winner from the favorite or underdog, designated by negative and positive odds respectively.

  • New England Patriots -220
  • New York Jets +180

For our example, there’s a wide range between the numbers, which indicates a paper mismatch in the eyes of oddsmakers. A closer span of something like -130/+110 points to a tighter affair.

What is the Jets Point Spread?

When betting on the spread, the goal is to figure out which side will cover. Oddsmakers set a number for each game which is basically like an estimated margin of victory.

  • New England Patriots -4.5 (-110)
  • New York Jets +4.5 (-110)

For our example listing, the Patriots would have to win the game by five points or more to cover. The Jets can cover by keeping the margin to four points or less or by pulling out an upset win.

Jets Totals (Over/Under)

You can also zero in on the amount of scoring in the Jets game. Sportsbooks set an estimated number of total combined points, and bettors then get to choose Over or Under that amount.

  • Over 48.5 (-110)
  • Under 48.5 (-110)

Also known as totals betting, it’s not uncommon to see movement in the numbers in response to betting action, but you can always line shop to find the odds and numbers that you like best.

How did the Jets do last year?

It was a challenging year for Gang Green, to say the least. Entering the season, there were questions lurking on whether or not head coach Adam Gase was the right man for the job. After the team opened up with a mark of 0-14, the answer to that question became readily apparent. While there were numerous calls for his firing, Gase managed to survive the year.

The Jets received a bye in Week 10. The club entered the break with a record of 0-9 with six of the losses being of the double-digit variety. After the break, it was four more losses in a row, two of which came by 17+ points. New York was in contention for the first overall pick in the next NFL Draft, but the team ruined those hopes with a pair of wins.

The season came to an end with a 28-14 road defeat at the hands of the rival New England Patriots. The team finished with a record of 2-14, the second worst-ever in franchise history, just eclipsing the disastrous 1996 campaign in which the team wrapped it up at 1-15. Gase was relieved of his duties after the season came to a close.

After an interesting offseason, the team is hoping it has finally found the right mix. Robert Saleh, former defensive coordinator of the San Francisco 49ers, is the new head coach, while QB Zach Wilson was selected with the second overall pick in the draft. Patience will be a virtue in the Big Apple this season, but perhaps the future can be brighter.

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 Jets 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 Lamical Perine or passing yards for Zach Wilson. 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 Perine 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. Only around 10% of all NFL games will be tied at halftime, and usually pays around 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 +10000, or 100-1 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 Zach Wilson: 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 season

As we get set for another season of Jets football, there’s nowhere to go but up. From a betting perspective, it’s important to put aside any preconceived notions and look to the season ahead and each game as individual events. To that end, here’s a trio of tips you can use to hopefully achieve some liftoff.

  1. Use the futures market as a guide: Over at DraftKings, the bar is set at 6.5 regular season wins, while the team is the last choice to win the AFC East at odds of +2000. While oddsmakers aren’t expecting any miracles, hitting six wins or so would have to count as marked improvement. Take the time to fully analyze this season’s schedule in the preseason. Do you see six wins or more? Once the games that matter get underway, be sure to focus on the current state of affairs and bet or pass accordingly.
  2. The Wilson prop and rookie of the year: The selection of QB Zach Wilson in the NFL Draft could be a turning point for the franchise, but that will naturally depend on his development and how things fall into place around him. You can gain some season-long rooting interest with an intriguing prop and a bet on him to win rookie of the year if you think that’s in the cards. There’s a season-long passing yardage prop for Over/Under 3,850.5 yards up at DraftKings, while his current odds to win ROTY stand at +800.
  3. The Saleh factor: In NFL coaching circles, Robert Saleh has been a highly-regarded future head coaching prospect for some time now. He now has his shot at the dance, and if he manages to get some pep in the step of the Jets, he’ll be a sensation in NY. If you’re a believer, the odds for him to win Coach of the Year stand at +2000 over at DraftKings. As for his impact on the individual games, the Jets have a Week 6 bye, so we should have some solid clues to lean on by that point.

Jets 2021 draft picks

Here are the Jets’ top picks in the 2021 NFL Draft.

  • Round 1: Pick 2: QB Zach Wilson
  • Round 1: Pick 14: OL Alijah Vera-Tucker
  • Round 2: Pick 34: WR Elijah Moore
  • Round 4: Pick 107: RB Michael Carter
  • Round 5: Pick 146: LB Jamien Sherwood
  • Round 5: Pick 154: CB Michael Carter II
  • Round 5: Pick 175: CB Jason Pinnock
  • Round 6: No. 186, S Hamsah Hasirildeen
  • Round 6: No. 207, DT Jonathan Marshall

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

For the 2021-22 season, Zach Wilson is primed to be the starting quarterback for the NY Jets, after the team traded Sam Darnold before the NFL york jets

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:

  • 2018-2021 – Sam Darnold – selected third overall by the Jets in 2018, he played three seasons with the Jets before being traded to the Carolina Panthers.
  • 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.

Robert Saleh is the 2021 Jets coach. The rookie coach took over the reins from Adam Gase following the dismal 2-14 season in 2020.

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 in 2019-20 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.
