As the offseason wears on, people who put their money behind their opinions are getting more confident that the Jets will be really bad.
The Jets’ win total was set at five at the Westgate in Las Vegas, and since then bets have consistently come in on the Jets finishing under five wins, so that the line has moved from -110 to -150, according to ESPN. No other team has seen as much money bet on the “under” win total.
The Jets were 5-11 last year and have lost many of their veteran players including Eric Decker, David Harris, Nick Mangold, Brandon Marshall and Darrelle Revis, so it’s easy to see them winning less than five games this season.
Of course, the Jets may be trying to lose this season so they can get the first pick in the draft next year, with what’s expected to be a strong quarterback class. The Jets’ own front office may hope everyone betting the under is correct.
