As it currently stands, the Jets are +165 to make the playoffs over at BetMGM, with a -200 miss number. Prior to Week 14, they were +105 to make the postseason.
Another notable mover on the week was the Detroit Lions, who went the other direction after securing a divisional victory over the Vikings. Detroit entered the week at +550 to make the playoffs entering, but the Lions dropped to +240 following the win.
The Lions have garnered 93% of the wagers and 96% of the handle on their make/miss playoffs prop on the yes side, so this was a rather positive development for most bettors.
Detroit and the Jets will actually meet this Sunday, so the game will provide us a great look at which team truly has a chance at the postseason.
Continuing on the positive side, the Panthers moved all the way from +1000 to +310 after beating the Seahawks. Seattle, on the other hand, dropped from a -550 favorite position all the way down to -145.
