The bettings odds are in for the Week 1 Monday Night Football matchup between the New York Jets and Detroit Lions. Gang Green are early favorites to leave victorious.

As per OddsShark.com, the odds are in for the Week 1 matchup between the New York Jets and Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football. The Jets are about +7 favorites in defeating the Lions, most likely due to making the big decision to start rookie quarterback Sam Darnold under center.

With a new young quarterback comes hope that he’ll spark something special on offense. With a lot of young players on offense and what could be a top-10 defensive secondary, the Jets could very well surprise many with a stunning win on the road.

The Lions are a team that is known to do whatever it takes to win as they ended last season with a 9-7 record. They just missed out on the NFL Playoffs as the Minnesota Vikings were the top team of the NFC North.

For those of you that love to bet on sports, especially online, the Jets might be worth betting on beating the Lions. They’re a young team hungry to prove that despite not having any big names or flashy players, they can be a competitive group capable to keep up with any opponent.

All eyes will be on Darnold as he begins his pro career and is likely one of the biggest reasons why the Jets are early betting favorites in this Week 1 matchup. His ability to stay calm, cool, and collective in the pocket can be a huge advantage over the Lions as nothing will phase him in the heat of the moment.

Bet the over on the Jets in this Week 1 game as they have enough talent to squeeze out a win. It might be a low scoring affair for the Jets but expect to see their offense look completely different than anything the football world has seen before thanks to everything Darnold brings to the table.
