The New York Jets finished the 2019 season on a 6-2 run. Was that a glimpse of what they’re capable of in 2020? Sean Koerner previews their win total below.
Jets Win Total
Sean Koerner, the Director of Predictive Analytics at Action, breaks down how he’s betting the Jets’ win total.
The Jets were able to win seven games last season, which is remarkable considering they had to start Luke Falk for a three-game stretch when Sam Darnold was out with mono. But I think it’s going to be tough for them to match that win total this season.
They have the biggest difference in year-over-year strength of schedule at +21 (from fourth-easiest to seventh-hardest). C.J. Mosley opted out, which is a massive loss for the defense. They traded away Jamal Adams for Bradley McDougald and a pair of first-round picks that may eventually pay off for them. But for 2020, it’s a significant loss.
The loss of Adams lowers the Jets’ power rating by a half-point. His loss is one of the main reasons I like their under.
PICK: Under 6.5 (-115; bet to -135)
