They are given a real shot at winning the Super Bowl this season as their odds are 12-1. The Jets are right with the New England Patriots as the favorite in NFL preseason betting in the AFC East.
NFL preseason odds for the Jets begin on August 16th as they play the Giants in the opener of the new Meadowlands Stadium. Just a few days later they go to Carolina for their second preseason game. The Jets host the Washington Redskins in Week 3 and then travel to Philadelphia for their preseason finale.
The Jets nearly made it to the Super Bowl last season but they did not stand pat in the off-season. They added LaDainian Tomlinson, Santonio Holmes, Antonio Cromartie and Jason Taylor. New York head coach Rex Ryan believes his team has the talent to win the Super Bowl. The Jets had a very good running game last year and quarterback Mark Sanchez was able to make some plays in the passing game. He may need to do more this season since the Jets are going to miss running back Thomas Jones who they let get away. New York will have to hope that Shonn Greene is ready to assume the starting running back job because Tomlinson may not have much left. The Jets should be better in the passing game with the addition of Holmes. He should be able to open up the field for Braylon Edwards.
New York has an excellent defense that could be just as good in 2010 NFL preseason betting. They will be getting Kris Jenkins back in the middle and he is a big run stopper. The team added Jason Taylor who should improve their pass rush. The linebackers are excellent led by Bart Scott and David Harris. The secondary has Darrelle Revis who is the best cornerback in the league. The Jets were number one against the pass last year and now they added Antonio Cromartie. As long as Revis doesn’t hold out, the Jets are going to be tough to throw against.
One concern for New York in NFL preseason odds is their kicker. They let Jay feely get away and decided to go with Nick Folk. He was great two years ago with the Cowboys but then last year he fell apart.
