The oddsmakers do not like the Jets very much. With the release of the 2017 NFL regular season schedule, we have the first betting line for Week 1. The Jets find themselves a 5.5 point road underdog according to BetOnline.AG.
Buffalo Bills (-5.5, 41.5) vs New York Jets
This is a road game, which means the line will be more favorable to the Bills. Still, this is one of the biggest early spreads of the week. The Bills were a bad team last year with a rookie head coach. The fact the Jets are such a large underdog speaks to how little the oddsmakers like them.
And if you look at the BetOnline.AG Super Bowl odds, you can see that is true. The team has the worst odds at winning the championship starting at +20000. Yes, the Jets are rated as worse than the Browns and the 49ers.
This is a nice way to start your Friday.
