Jets' 2015 NFL Betting Odds
EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ (The Spread) - The Jets have been praised for their offseason but will it transfer into more wins in 2015?
After finishing 4-12 in 2014, the Jets fired Rex Ryan and hired former Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles. They also revamped their secondary this offseason, signing Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine. They also added a new offensive weapon in Brandon Marshall, whom they acquired from the Bears via trade.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Jets' over/under for wins in the 2015 regular season has been set at 7.5, while their 2016 Super Bowl odds are 50/1. They're also 18/1 to win the AFC Conference Championship and are 15/2 to win the AFC East.
The Jets are loaded defensively and hired a bright defensive mind in Bowles. Not only will their additions at cornerback greatly help New York win games in 2015, but the Jets also had USC defensive lineman Leonard Williams fall to them with the No. 6 overall pick in April's draft. Coupled with Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson, Williams will join what should be an excellent pass rush in 2015.
The biggest question that the Jets face is at quarterback, where Geno Smith is expected to start. If he can show major growth in his development under new offensive coordinator Chan Gailey, then the Jets should produce at least a .500 record this season.
