When I feel of potential 2023 Super Bowl winners, I assume of the Expenses, the Bucs, the Chargers, the Bengals, and possibly even the Denver Broncos — the AFC West is stacked — relying on how risky I’m emotion. Most likely that’s why, according to OddsChecker US, they make up 4 of the 5 groups obtaining the most bets, about the past 60 days, to win the Tremendous Bowl subsequent 12 months. Any guesses who the very last group might be?
It’s gotta be a group with Super Bowl aspirations, ideal? Probably a workforce with reduced odds but a massive payout like the Raiders or Eagles? Not even shut.
It is the New York Jets.
Per OddsChecker spokesperson Kyle Newman, in excess of the last 60 days, only the Charges (11.3 per cent of bets) have obtained much more action than the Jets (5.3 p.c). The Buccaneers are shut with a different 5.3 percent, but rank just a little below the Jets in that group.
It has to be the Bengals, right? It constantly is. Bettors saw Cincinnati climb out of the AFC North basement to reach the Tremendous Bowl and are seeking for a equivalent practical experience to transpire this yr. The Jets have a next-year quarterback, a head mentor who will come from a process in the NFC West, and just drafted a extensive receiver in the major-10 of the most the latest draft. It can not be a coincidence. Bettors are viewing heritage flash correct ahead of their eyes. I suggest, just think about all the moments in latest memory a workforce with extremely handful of wins arrived again the pretty following 12 months to attain the Super Bowl. The Bengals very last 12 months, the 2019 49ers…the 2001 Patriots? Okay. It hasn’t transpired that considerably not long ago, but it took place very last year and which is all that matters.
The Jets (4-13 past season) are currently remaining offered +15000 odds to get the Tremendous Bowl, or a .5 % prospect — the 3rd-cheapest of any crew in the NFL. Only the Houston Texans and Atlanta Falcons have worse odds. That remaining explained, the Bengals were being also provided +15000 odds to earn the Super Bowl past yr and glance what they did. They had sportsbooks shaking in their boots hoping they wouldn’t have to shell out out all those “Who Dey?” bettors from the start out of the season. So, what do I or anyone else know? Nothing.
If you want to wager on the goddamn Jets, go for it. I’m not heading to try to stop you from likely all gung-ho on your most loved group. But let’s be crystal clear, what the Bengals did last time was absolutely nothing limited of spectacular, and anticipating an additional crew to replicate that accomplishment is most likely not going to do the job out in the lengthy run. Almost certainly.
