The bets came in fast and furious on Tuesday and, by Wednesday morning, no team had more bets or money on it — at least at one sportsbook — than the New York Jets.
Buoyed by the news that the Jets were interested in trading for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, bettors started taking shots at the team whose only Super Bowl title came more than 54 years ago.
Last Friday, PointsBet had the Jets at 30/1 to win the Super Bowl. After a flurry of bets on Tuesday, that went down to 16/1. By Wednesday morning, the Jets ranked first in bet count (12.4 percent) and first in handle (18.5 percent) of the Super Bowl futures pool.
It wasn’t just at PointsBet.
As of 3 p.m. ET on Tuesday, there were 291 NFL futures bets made at Caesars Sportsbook — more than 75 percent the bets were on the Jets.
The Jets are also first in handle at DraftKings (15 percent) and third (8 percent) in total bets.
Jets owner Woody Johnson flew with head coach Robert Saleh, GM Joe Douglas and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett to California on Tuesday to meet with the four-time MVP.
The Jets haven’t made the playoffs since 2010, the longest postseason drought in the NFL.
