The New York Jets will be so much better with Sam Darnold entering his second full season and a new head coach? Right? Vegas says not a chance.
Hold off on those “New York Jets Super Bowl Champs” tattoos for the time being. If Vegas has anything to say about that, the Jets aren’t going to be playing in February for quite some time.
The NFL Future Odds have been released via Vegas Insider and the Jets are down at the very bottom of the list.
According to Vegas Insider, the New York Jets have a 66/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl next season. The only team with worse odds would be the Miami Dolphins, who finished second in the AFC East this past season.
Other teams that have the same odds would include the Arizona Cardinals, Buffalo Bills, Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions, Oakland Raiders, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington Redskins.
For reference, the team with the best odds to emerge as Super Bowl victors next season would be the Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback in Patrick Mahomes.
The Jets have made some significant changes and actually put together an okay season with Sam Darnold at the helm. While he was out a few games with injury, he certainly proved he’s the quarterback of the future for this Jets team.
Obviously, there is still time to change that with free agency looming and the NFL Draft coming up with several great defensive prospects. But right now, these Jets are nowhere near the top of the pack and it doesn’t look like things will change with teams like the Chiefs and New Orleans Saints are only getting better.
Maybe the Jets will improve but right now, their chances aren’t looking so hot. So if you were planning on getting an ironic Super Bowl tattoo for the Jets, wait a little bit. Maybe wait until they actually might have a shot.
