2012-2013 Regular Season: 6-10 SU | 7-9 ATS
The Jets not only stunk it up on the field, they became the face of dysfunctional franchises during the 2012 season. They finished with a record of 6-10 SU – tied with the Buffalo Bills as the worst in the division. Mired in a quarterback-related dilemma all throughout the season, the Jets likewise failed to deliver the goods for its spread bettors with an also division-worst 7-9 ATS record, 5 of those losses were suffered at home.
If the Jets want to improve their playoff chances(they’re currently both priced +2,500 to rule their division and the AFC) they need to resolve the QB situation and decide whether beleaguered former franchise QB Mark Sanchez has one more chance or whether their new star rookie takes the reigns right away. In the offseason, the team waived media-circus magnet Tim Tebow and selected former West Virginia signal-caller Geno Smith, igniting speculation the butt fumble season was the last stray for Mark Sanchez as starter. The New York Jets 2014 Super Bowl odds of winning are priced at +5000.
Rex Ryan’s squad will face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1 of their schedule. What’s interesting in this match-up is the fact that it would be former Jet Darrelle Revis’s first game after getting traded to the Bucs in the offseason. On another note, the Jets seemed to have mastered the art of beating Tampa Bay as evidenced by their 7-0 SU and ATS record in their last 7 meetings. However, the Jets are the 1-point underdog in this game. In Week 2, the Jets’ first true test of the season comes in the form of the New England Patriots who they haven’t beaten in their last 4 battles. For totals bettors, note that the Over is 7-0 in their last 7 meetings.
