Online sportsbook bets have a way of making your life easier when it comes to the quickness and safety of placing wagers from the comfort of your La-Z-Boy. While surfing in my brown leatherette recliner this weekend, I did some more research on the upcoming 2016/17 NFL season which included some analysis of the New York Jets. Although often referred to as the New York “Jest”, “Gang Green” as they are often called have the bones of a good team this year.
Online Sportsbook Bets – New York Jets Preview
Other than playing in the AFC East with the New England Patriots, the Jets have a fairly straight forward division. With the sad sack Miami Dolphins and the hit or miss Buffalo Bills as divisional rivals, there is a chance that the New York “Sack Exchange” could earn a wild card spot. It is highly unlikely, barring injuries and other unforeseen circumstances, that your online sportsbook bets will have the Jets beating the Pats for the AFC East title.
NFL Proposition Lines- New York Jets Future Bets
The Jets are currently +650 to win the AFC East, +3000 to win the AFC Championship, and +6000 to win Super Bowl LI. All in all the odds seem pretty solid although you could argue that Buffalo Bills at +400 to win the AFC East are the better team. I am not so sure I agree with that. I know everyone has been getting excited about the Bills again, but I think with the re-signing of Ryan Fitzpatrick the Jets gets some much needed talent and stability at the QB role. Whether this translates into a winning season or not remains to be seen, but it sure feels like an upgrade from Geno Smith.
New York Jets Picks – Online Sportsbook Bets
Regardless of who is in the QB role, the Jets do have a major roadblock this year in terms of their schedule. According to my research, the Jets face one of the toughest 2016/17 schedules in the league. To begin the season they face a number of teams that made the playoffs last year- five to be exact. The last stretch of the season is a little more forgiving, but sees Gang Green play the New England Patriots twice which will be tough games no doubt.
So at the end of the day I think the reviews are mixed for the New York Jets 2016/17 NFL season, and as such for your online sportsbook bets on them. There is likely more value in betting against the Jets than for them this year, but if you are a New York fan then pick your spots wisely in backing them. I think although the Jets have a decent team this year, the difficulty of their schedule could be a significant challenge to a wild card spot.
