Best Jets Betting Lines 2023
The 2021 NFL season was less than ideal for the New York Jets, but expected, as the team went 4-13 and missed the playoffs for the 11th consecutive year. Zach Wilson led the team to three wins in his rookie campaign and struggled with turnovers. Now, he’ll be behind the eight ball in Year 2 after suffering a minor knee injury in preseason.
Still, the Jets’ offseason was generally a success, highlighted by a star-studded draft class that could changes the fortunes of the franchise for years to come.
With the No. 4 overall pick, the Jets took Ahmad “Sauce" Gardner, the top-rated cornerback in the draft, who fell right into their lap. Then, with the No. 10 pick, the Jets took Garrett Wilson, the top-rated wide receiver in the draft.
The first round didn’t stop there for New York, as GM Joe Douglas traded back in to take a projected top-10 pick in Jermaine Johnson at No. 26. The Jets also added Breece Hall, the top-rated running back in the draft, early in the second round.
While New York isn’t a playoff team just yet, there’s a lot of hype around this franchise. New York is putting together the building blocks for the future to compete in the now-competitive AFC East.

Jets Super Bowl 57 Odds
Jets to Win Super Bowl (+15000)
At (+15000) odds, the Jets are tied with the Chicago Bears for the fourth-worst odds to win the Super Bowl. The only teams with worse odds to win Super Bowl 57 are the Seattle Seahawks, Atlanta Falcons, and Houston Texans.
This makes sense given how young the team is and how they played last season. The Jets are nowhere near being Super Bowl contenders yet. New York has a lot of potential on the roster, but they need more experience under their belt.
You never know what could happen, so if you really want to bet on the Jets to win the Super Bowl, don’t put more than $5 on them.
Jets AFC Championship Odds
Jets to Win AFC Championship (+5500)
Like the Super Bowl odds, the Jets are near the bottom of the pack to win the AFC, with only the Texans and Jaguars having worse odds than them.
The AFC is way too strong and will be highly competitive. Fellow division member Buffalo Bills are at the top of the conference, followed by the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos with their new quarterback Russell Wilson.
Under Douglas and head coach Robert Saleh, the Jets’ rebuild is going much better than it has in the past. As a result, the New York could be competing for the AFC Championship in a few years — just not now.
Jets AFC East Winner Odds
Jets to Win AFC East Championship (+2200)
Just when it was starting to clear up for the Jets to come back into the AFC East conversation, things became much more complicated.
After Tom Brady left New England, the AFC East was up for grabs. The Bills slotted into the top spot, having won the division in back-to-back years. Mac Jones brought New England back to the playoffs when we thought the Patriots dynasty was over. While Miami is on a playoff drought, the Dolphins continue to build a strong roster to make a playoff run.
New York doesn’t have a chance at winning the division with the current roster. They’re getting better, but so are their divisional rivals. They’ll need to sign some big names in the next few years if they want to compete for the AFC East title.
Jets Make Playoffs Odds
Jets to Miss Playoffs (-1000)
The Jets are very much not playoff contenders, and it shows in their odds of missing the playoffs. While anything can happen, and they could come out the gate on fire, I don’t see that happening.
The team needs more time to develop and more pieces before breaking their playoff drought of 11 years.
Jets Win Total Bets 2023
Jets: OVER 5.5 Wins (-150)
New York’s schedule is somewhat favorable, as they play nine teams that missed the playoffs last year. However, they play against the Broncos, who got a significant upgrade at quarterback, and will also face the Bengals and Packers.
It’s key that the Jets secure wins against weaker teams like the Jaguars, Lions, Bears, Steelers, and Seahawks. Last year, both losses to the Dolphins were by a touchdown, so the series could be split this year, giving the Jets six wins.
The Jets could also sneak out a win or two from one of the playoff teams, catching them off guard at the right time as they did last year against Cincinnati.
Jets Prop Bets 2023
Breece Hall OVER 785.5 Rushing Yards (-115)
The Jets taking Breece Hall in the draft was interesting, considering they’ve only seen one year out of Michael Carter. But after further review, passing up on Hall was not an option.
Last year for Iowa State, Hall ran for 1,472 yards and 20 touchdowns. In 2020, he ran for 1,572 yards and 21 touchdowns. Hall is an absolute workhorse who can succeed with a high volume of carries. Hall might not be the starter right away, but the Jets will soon realize he needs to be.
How to Bet Jets Moneylines
If you make the decision to bet on the Jets to win a specific game, you’re making a moneyline wager. These NFL bets are very simple as you just pick a team to win, and if they do, you win your bet.
Since not all matchups are equal, the odds for NFL moneylines can vary based each team’s implied probability of victory or defeat. Teams that are expected to win (favorites) are identified by a minus symbol (-300), while teams that are projected to lose (underdogs) are represented by a plus symbol (+300).
Given their play over the past decade, the Jets typically fall in the latter category. However, if you want to bet them as say a (+200) underdog, you would win $20 on a $10 bet if they won because the odds of it happening are lower.

How to Bet Jets Spreads
Betting the spread is the most efficient way to wager on NFL games, as it presents two evenly priced options, regardless of the talent disparity between the teams. The spread, which is assigned a value by the bookmakers, is essentially the number of points that the favorite is expected to win by against the underdog.
If the Jets are 8-point underdogs against the Bills, the spread for that game will look something like this: Bills -8 (-110) vs Jets +8 (-110).
In this scenario, the Jets would have to win or lose by less than eight points to cover the spread and cash your bet. If they were to lose by exactly eight points, your bet would push. If they lose by nine points or more, you would lose.
In 2021, New York was slightly better against the spread than they were straight up, but this still wasn’t one of the best teams to back. That could change in 2022, however, as the Jets should be more competitive in Year 2 of the Robert Saleh/Zach Wilson era.

How to Bet Jets Over/Unders
Another way to bet on Jets games is by wagering on the total number of points scored in a particular contest.
Sportsbooks set a line of the amount of points they expect both teams to combine to score, and then you can bet on either the Over or the Under.
Last season, the Jets were an Over team as they didn’t play much defense but could still put up some points. That could flip this season as they have plugged some holes on the defensive side of the ball, especially in the secondary.
