NY Jets 2022 NFL Season Betting Prediction: Win/Loss Record
2022-23 NFL Regular Season

- New York Jets Total Win / Loss Total Odds: 5 ½
Why the New York Jets will win more than 5 games
The Jets improved their defense big time. New York drafted Ohio State wide receiver Garrett Wilson and signed former Bengal tight-end C.J. Uzomah.
NYJ also drafted Oklahoma State running back Breece Hall. Uzomah, Hall, and Wilson will start. In addition, the Jets’ offensive line has improved
Left tackle Noah Fant comes from Seattle. Right guard Laken Tomlinson played in San Francisco last season while center Connor McGovern played at Denver.
Right tackle Mekhi Becton is solid. So is starting right guard Alijah Vera-Tucker. The only question is whether Zach Wilson takes the next step. With so many weapons, the chances are Wilson doesn’t just take the next step, he also takes the step after the next.
Why the New York Jets won’t win more than 5 games
The schedule is as brutal as it gets. The Jets start the season playing against three straight AFC North teams: the Baltimore Ravens in their first game, the Cleveland Browns in their second, Cincinnati in their third, and the Pittsburgh Steelers in their fourth.
Then after tackling the AFC North, the Jets must throw down versus Miami at home before back-to-back road games at Green Bay and Denver.
Final Betting Analysis: Will the New York Jets win at least 6 games?
The Jets have improved. But the Jets didn’t just improve on offense. They also improved on defense.
First round pick DE Jermaine Johnson should make an immediate impact. So will strong safety Jordan Whitehead, who lands in New York after playing at Tampa last season, and free safety D.J. Reed, who headed to the Jets after calling Seattle home in 2021.
Based on defensive and offensive improvements, the New York Jets should win at least 6 games.
Let’s say the Jets win the home games they should win. NYJ beats the Chicago Bears on Nov. 27, the Detroit Lions on Dec. 18, and the Jacksonville Jaguars in week 16. If NYJ does win those games, that’s 3 wins.
So where will the other 3 wins come from? The Jets could beat the Ravens at home in week 1. If Deshaun Watson doesn’t play, NYJ could beat the Browns in week 2.
Now we’re up to 5 wins. Where will the other win come from? The Jets have a chance versus Seattle on Jan. 1 or New England at home on Oct. 30. NYJ could win both, which means the Jets will win 7 games this season.
The potential for 8 to 9 wins is there. The New York Jets improved during the offseason more than any other NFL team. If the offensive line can protect Zach Wilson, he could have a pro bowl season. So don’t sleep on the Jets.
