The Jets entered the 2022 season with the third-worst odds to win Super Bowl LVII. There wasn't much optimism that the Jets would be able to not only snap their postseason drought but shock the NFL world and win their second Lombardi Trophy.
Ultimately, the Jets overachieved last season, due in part to the rise of a number of young stars on the roster. That's why, even despite the uncertainty at quarterback, oddsmakers are a lot more confident in the Jets' chances next season.
DraftKings has given the Jets +2800 odds to win the Super Bowl in the 2023-24 season, the ninth-best odds of any team in the NFL. That's higher than teams like the Miami Dolphins, Las Vegas Raiders, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks, Los Angeles Rams, etc.
What does this say about the Jets? What does Vegas think the Jets are going to do at the quarterback position?
What the NY Jets Super Bowl odds suggest
This is a clear indication that the Vegas oddsmakers believe the Jets will land a high-level quarterback this offseason — or at least a QB they can compete with. Most indications point to Aaron Rodgers being the guy the Jets are targeting.
The fact that the Jets have better odds than the Raiders might suggest that Vegas believes the Jets could be the ones to land Rodgers, or perhaps it's just an indication that the oddsmakers are bullish on the rest of the Jets' roster.
It's a testament to just how far this roster has come. A year ago, the Jets were seen as one of the least-talented teams in the NFL with the third-worst Super Bowl odds. Less than eight months later, they're now seen as dark-horse Super Bowl contenders.
Of course, much of this depends on what the Jets do at the quarterback position. These odds aren't assuming the Jets roll with Zach Wilson or Mike White in 2023. The assumption is that they'll add someone like Rodgers, Derek Carr, or even Jimmy Garoppolo.
It is nice to see the Jets receive some national praise from the oddsmakers — it's a significant change of pace given how the organization has been viewed by the betting world over the last decade-plus.
There's a newfound sense of optimism in Florham Park. Now, it's time to get a quarterback to fit that optimism.
