The Jets Should be Better in 2022, How Much Better? Time will Tell
It might be a little premature to expect the New York Jets to snap their current run of six straight seasons missing the playoffs, however, there are reasons for optimism for a franchise that hasn’t been in the playoffs since 2010. We have the latest New York Jets stats, and betting odds, right here.
The addition of cornerback Sauce Gardner, receiver Garrett Wilson, defensive end Jermaine Johnson, and running back Breece Hall could be just what the Jets need to turn the corner. They are showing up among the top contenders in the rookie of the year odds. Take a look at the PointSpreads page and check the NFL news, as well as player totals in our New York Jets future betting odds cheat sheet.
The Jets came into the 2021 season with an expected regular-season win total of 6½ and fell well short of that with a 4-13 record. The Jets were 0-6 against fellow AFC East teams and 1-7 on the road. The Jets were also 4-5 in one-score affairs. One major difference is that a season ago, the odds for the Jets to top that expected win total ranged from +110 to +115. This year it is at -125.

Regular Season Wins
Within the top 50 picks, the Jets selected Ahmad Gardner, Garrett Wilson, Jermaine Johnson, and Breece Hall. It could be argued that they got the top cornerback, receiver, pure pass rusher, and running back in the draft.
That impressive draft haul came a year after quarterback Zach Wilson, offensive lineman Alijah Vera-Tucker, receiver Elijah Moore and running back Michael Carter were the top four picks in 2021. Those eight players have given the Jets fans reason for optimism.
Laken Tomlinson was brought in to bolster the offensive line. Other than the draft selections, the biggest addition on defense was hard-hitting safety Jordan Whitehead.
Zach Wilson Needs to Deliver on the Field
- Passing Yards: 3700.5
- Touchdowns: 22.5
- Interceptions: 14.5
Zach Wilson has been making plenty of headlines with his personal life during the offseason. The big question is whether he will be quite as entertaining on the field, and can he change the trajectory of the New York Jets future betting odds?
His numbers as a rookie were rather sad. He completed just 55.6% of his passes for 2334 with nine touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He was more accurate in the four wins, completing 61.3% of his passes, although he had only three TD passes in those four games.
With Corey Davis, Wilson, and Moore to throw the ball to, the numbers for Wilson should improve. It didn’t help him that Davis missed eight games and Moore six contests.
The offensive line is still a work in progress, but there is no reason to think that Wilson won’t make a jump from Year 1 to Year 2.
Currently, Wilson is tabbed at 3700.5 passing yards for the upcoming season. That would be a major jump from his rookie season.
A total of 16 quarterbacks had more than 3700 yards a season ago so that number could be a little on the low side considering the talent that Wilson brings to the quarterback position.
Big Things Expected From Talented Rookie Runner
The Jets have upgraded the running back position through the last two drafts with Michael Carter running for a team-best 639 yards a season ago. Now comes Breece Hall, a player considered to be the best running back in the draft. He currently is tied for the fifth-best odds (+900) to win the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award.
Is Hall Ready to Become Lead Back as a Rookie?
- Rushing Yards: 830.5 (+100o)
- Rushing Touchdowns: 5.5
The 220-pound Hall ran for nearly 4000 yards and 50 touchdowns to go with 82 receptions. He will have every chance to show what he can do for a Jets team that finished 27th in the NFL with an average of 98.1 rushing yards per game.
Attempting to bring in players from other teams to address the running back situation hasn’t been working, so now Hall will be looked at to provide a jolt to the running game. He could also serve as a security blanket for Wilson.
Jets Looking for More from Moore in 2022
- Receptions: 64.5
- Receiving Yards: 800.5
- Receiving Touchdowns: 4.5 (-135o)
Moore was targeted 51 times over the last six games that he played. He finished with 34 catches and 459 yards in those contests. That would translate into 96 catches and 1300 yards over a 17-game schedule. Nobody is expecting him to hit those marks. However, his performance against Miami when he had 141 yards on eight catches showed the potential that he has.
There will be more options in the passing game and that could open up more room for Moore in the passing game. He could have a chance to be used to stretch the field more than he did during his rookie season.
First-Round Pick Ready to Catch on With Jets
Garrett Wilson knows how to thrive in an offense with plenty of mouths to feed. He was part of an Ohio State team in 2021 that had two 1,000-yard receivers and a 1,000-yard rusher.
Wilson finished second on the Buckeyes with 70 catches for 1058 receiving yards. Wilson had 25 catches for 362 yards and four touchdowns in three games against ranked teams in 2021. That ability to rise to the occasion against the best competition could serve him well as a rookie.
Wilson is a Rookie Worth Watching
- Receiving Yards: 750.5
- Receiving Touchdowns: 3.5 (-145o)
The Jets had their pick of any of the top receivers in the 2022 NFL Draft with the exception of Drake London. They went with Wilson, a player who averaged 15.5 yards in his 143 career catches with the Buckeyes.
It will be fun to watch how the Jets implement the talented Wilson as they look to upgrade an offense that was held under 20 points a total of nine times in 2021 with New York losing each of those contests.
