With no preseason action to go off of, bettors went into Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season relatively blind. Now, with one week in the books, we all have a much better idea of how each of the league’s 32 teams will look this season.

Yes, it would be foolish to think one game will give us a large enough sample size and enough data to completely write-off certain teams. But at the same time, based on what we saw this past weekend, there are a handful of teams that would need a minor miracle to contend for the postseason.

One of those teams is the New York Jets.

BetMGM is currently offering odds on which NFL team will finish with the most regular season losses in 2020. The Jets, despite their glaring issues in Week 1, are sitting at +900 (9-1).

In looking at New York’s remaining slate of games, it’s not completely out of the question for the Gang Green to finish the 2020 season with only two or three victories.

Here’s a rundown on the Jets remaining schedule and my win/loss prediction for each game:

  • Week 2: San Francisco 49ers (loss)
  • Week 3: @ Indianapolis Colts (loss)
  • Week 4: Denver Broncos (loss)
  • Week 5: Arizona Cardinals (loss)
  • Week 6: @ Los Angeles Chargers (loss)
  • Week 7: Buffalo Bills (loss)
  • Week 8: @ Kansas City Chiefs (loss)
  • Week 9: New England Patriots (loss)
  • Week 10: @ Miami Dolphins (loss)
  • Week 11: BYE
  • Week 12: Miami Dolphins (win)
  • Week 13: Las Vegas Raiders (win)
  • Week 14: @ Seattle Seahawks (loss)
  • Week 15: @ Los Angeles Rams (loss)
  • Week 16: Cleveland Browns (loss)
  • Week 17: @ New England Patriots (loss)

As you can see, the potential is there for the Jets to pile up a lot of losses in 2020. I predicted a 2-14 record above, while the best case scenario I came up with was 6-10.

Maybe (hopefully) the Jets can get it together, and there are other teams to like here (Panthers and Bengals). But at 9-1, the value in taking New York here is too good to pass up.

Other contenders:

  • New York Giants (+900)
  • Miami Dolphins (+700)
  • Washington Football Team (+600)
  • Carolina Panthers (+550)
  • Cincinnati Bengals (+550)
  • Jacksonville Jaguars (+550)
