The New York Jets closed out last season with a record of 7-10. The club suffered a devastating blow in its opener when Aaron Rodgers suffered a season-ending injury during his first drive with the team. The team managed to remain relatively competitive while dealing with a revolving door at QB the rest of the way. Rodgers will be back under center in Week 1 as the Jets aim for better days. New York closed out last campaign with a record of 6-10-1 against the spread and 7-10 on the over/under.

The San Francisco 49ers were the NFC’s top postseason seed last season with a record of 12-5. After defeating the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round, the club had to rally from a double-digit deficit for a 34-31 win over the Detroit Lions in the conference championship game. San Francisco then lost a heartbreaker at the Super Bowl, falling 25-22 in overtime to the Kansas City Chiefs. The club heads into the new season as the early favorite in Super Bowl 59 odds. Including the playoffs, the 49ers were 9-11 ATS and 12-8 on totals a season ago.
