The New York Jets are still looking to snap a playoff drought that stretches back for over a decade, but there’s hope that progress is coming this season. Robert Saleh returns as head coach after a 4-13 debut campaign, while former second overall pick Zach Wilson is aiming to take steps forward in year two of his pro career.
Futures odds are pointing to another long season as training camp continues. We’ll get our first look at the flight plan during preseason action versus the Philadelphia Eagles. The Jets will open the regular season at home in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens. Here’s a closer look at the latest Jets betting odds and angles.
New York Jets odds: Spread, moneyline and over/under
NFL Preseason Week 1: Jets travel to Philly for preseason opener
The Jets take the short trek to the City of Brotherly Love for their preseason opener. They’ll be facing off with the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday, August 12 with kickoff at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Preseason games can be tough to read, especially for opening week. Early betting lines are pointing to the potential for a tight matchup in the opener for both teams.
- Moneyline: The Eagles were installed as a very slight -115 home favorite at the release, but the numbers have moved to -110 on both sides.
- Spread: New York is a 1-point underdog for a game that oddsmakers are expecting to be a toss-up.
- Over/Under: The bar has been set low on scoring for this one as the opening total is 35.5 points.
Week 1 odds: Jets set as 6-point home dogs for opener vs. Ravens
It was another season of disappointment for a Jets team that closed out the year at 4-13. The Ravens started off last season looking like a contender, but injuries and a six-game losing streak led to a disappointing record of 8-9.
Looking ahead to this season, futures odds are pointing to Baltimore as having the potential to bounce back, while New York remains a work in progress.
- Moneyline: As the odds currently stand, there are a whopping eleven home underdogs on the NFL Week 1 slate, including the Jets (+200). The Ravens struggled on the road last season at 3-5, while New York was just 3-6 at home.
- Spread: The Jets opened as 4.5-point home underdogs for Week 1, but the spread has since shifted to Ravens -6. New York was 6-11 against the spread last year, while Baltimore was 8-9.
- Over/Under: Totals for NFL Week 1 games currently range from a low of 41 to a high of 53 points. This game is in the average range at 45. The Ravens averaged 22.8 points per game last season, while the Jets notched 18.2 per contest, which was fifth-worst in the league.
New York Jets odds to win the Super Bowl
Last Updated: August 11
At the initial release of Super Bowl 57 odds, the Jets were toward the back of the pack at +10000, and the odds have since lengthened even further to +13000.
The Jets are in the bottom tier of teams when it comes to Super Bowl odds. For perspective, they’re tied with three other clubs at DraftKings, while just five other squads have worse odds. The Buffalo Bills (+600) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+700) are the current favorites to win the big game.

You can also place your bets on how you think the Jets will fare in other categories, such as regular season win totals, the division title chase, and the season-long performance of individual players. Let’s take a look at some of the latest Jets betting odds.
Regular season win total
After a four-win season, there’s plenty of room for improvement in New York. The win total suggests that some baby steps forward could be on the way. The current odds indicate that more bettors have wagered on the team to exceed 5.5 wins.
Odds to win the AFC East
BetMGM Sportsbook: +2200
In the current AFC East hierarchy, the Jets remain at the bottom. Odds boards have them projected for last place once again. The Bills (-225) are heavy favorites to win the division, followed by the Miami Dolphins (+450) and New England Patriots (+450).
Odds to win the AFC
Caesars Sportsbook: +7500
To win the conference, the Jets are the second-to-last choice at Caesars, ahead of only the Houston Texans (+12500). The Bills (+350) are the current favorites to win the AFC, followed by the Kansas City Chiefs (+500).
Zach Wilson NFL MVP odds
FanDuel Sportsbook: +10000
Wilson had a very challenging rookie season. While some improvement is possible for year two, making the leap forward to an MVP candidate is unlikely. Josh Allen (+700) is the current favorite to win the award.
Season-long player prop odds
- Most passing yards: Zach Wilson +6000
- Most rushing yards: Breece Hall +5000
- Most receiving yards: Elijah Moore +6000
Jets players are well down the charts in all three categories. There could be some more efficiency in Wilson’s second year behind center, but there’s nothing to suggest that a league leader is lurking in the New York offense.

Latest news and updates
As a four-win team last season, the Jets clearly have plenty of holes to fill. The team took steps toward doing so with free-agent additions that included Laken Tomlinson, DJ Reed, CJ Uzomah, and Tyler Conklin. Foley Fatukasi, Marcus Maye, and Morgan Moses are among those who signed elsewhere.
The Jets landed three picks in the first round of the NFL draft. The club selected CB Ahmad Gardner with the fourth overall pick, and followed that up by selecting WR Garrett Wilson and DE Jermaine Johnson II. In round two, the pick was RB Breece Hall. On paper, the Jets are better than they were last year, but a vast improvement seems unlikely.
