NFL players across the country are now in OTA’s, which means that we are now that much closer to the start of the 2019 season. For most of us, it still feels like there is an awful long time to go before the action really begins, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t start looking at some potential wagers for the coming season. One of the bets that is really fun to try and figure out is the O/U in total team wins. Those have now been released, so we will be looking at the potential totals for every team in the NFL. For the purposes of this piece, we will be focusing on the New York Jets, whose win total for the 2019 NFL season has been set at 7.
New York Jets 2019 NFL Season Win/Loss Total Betting Prediction
- New York Jets 2019 Win Total Odds: 7
- 2018 Wins: 4
Why Jets over 7 is a good bet?
The Jets were always going to struggle in 2018 with a rookie QB leading the offense. That is exactly what happened, but we also saw enough out of Sam Darnold to suggest that he is going to be a solid NFL QB. Any time he got protection from his O-line, which started to happen late in the season, he showed that he was incredibly competent in the pocket.
The Jets will have a new head coach on the sidelines this season and they have gone with a guy who knows how to run an offense. Adam Gase got more out of Tim Tebow in Denver than anyone expected, so we may well see Darnold take another step forward this season.
Darnold will also get some help in the form of LeVeon Bell, as he will immediately take some of the pressure off the young man’s shoulders, assuming he can hit his stride quickly.
Why Jets under 7 is a good bet?
The addition of Bell is certainly a great one, but how much can we reasonably expect from a guy who sat out the entire season last year? Let’s also not forget that Bell has yet to play a full, uninterrupted season in this league, so there are questions of durability, not to mention his penchant for becoming a distraction off the field.
The Jets had a lot of money to spend this offseason and it would appear that they spent it wisely. There are going to be a lot of new faces on this team, though, so you have to wonder just how quickly they can all gel. A strong start is an absolute must for this group, especially with the egos that will be prowling the sidelines this season.
New York Jets 2019 Regular Season Win Final Analysis
The Jets have made some nice upgrades on both sides of the football, but as we have already said, how quickly can all those new pieces come together and create a winning mentality? If Bell can come in and make an immediate impact, it will take a ton of pressure off of Darnold at QB. If that happens, this team could be a threat.
I am a little on the fence here, as I really do believe that we could well be looking at a push. I am going to go out on a limb and take the Jets to have a decent season.
