Last year the Jets finished the season strong, winning three of their last four games, and one year later, they are looking to improve on their strong finish. Their NFL Odds are probably still not in play, however they could be a very good ATS team in 2014.
Super Bowl (+6600)
I know some of you rabid New York Jets fans don’t need any excuse to put money on the Jets to win the Super Bowl, however if you’re taking my advice, I wouldn’t do it, folks. The Jets might be a good team this season, but their Super Bowl NFL Betting Odds are not playable. At +6600, they aren’t in the bottom of the playing field, but they aren’t much higher than the bottom. Their defense will surely be good again as they had one of the better front sevens in football last season, and while they won’t score 30 points per game on offense, they should be improved in that area this season. The additions of Eric Decker, Chris Johnson and Michael Vick will add depth and talent to the skill positions, and especially with Vick, even though he may not play much, if at all, he will be a welcome tutor to young Geno Smith.
The same that can be said about the Jets’ Super Bowl NFL Odds can be said about their conference futures. I don’t see many scenarios this season where the Jets will compete with the Broncos and Patriots, and even though they beat the Pats last season at home, I don’t think that’s going to be an emerging trend heading forward. However even though the Jets’ futures aren’t quite in play, they could really have some great NFL betting pick value. Last year the Jets went 9-6-1 ATS, and they finished the season covering three out of four as well as winning three out of four. With their offense looking like it has some upside this season, another year of .500 or better football could be in the cards for the J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets.
AFC East (+750)
When making your futures betting picks, keep in mind that beating the Patriots for the AFC East might just be a miracle if it happens. Even after beating Tommy Brady in their last meeting, the Jets still don’t have what it takes to beat them out for this division. New England’s defense is going to be much improved this season, and while the Jets have a better defense, it’s not much if at all. However the playoffs may not be that far out of reach for this club. The AFC is going to be worse than it was last season, and another 9-7 SU team might be able to sneak into the playoffs. On top of the playoffs being open, there could be another instance where a wildcard team actually wins a game. The AFC South and AFC North champs are likely going to be vulnerable just like the Bengals were last year when they lost to the Chargers in the playoffs, and the Jets are the exact type of team that could win a playoff game against a better team. Their running game should be excellent this year after adding Johnson to Chris Ivory, and when you can run the ball ad play defense, you can win in the NFL playoffs.
