Jets' Win Total Suggests Tough Regression in 2020 Season

The New York Jets had an up-and-down season last year. With key players like Sam Darnold and linebacker C.J. Mosley missing significant time, among others, it was tough for the Jets to find a groove in 2019.

However, heading into 2020 with everyone healthy and a completely revamped offensive line, including first-round pick Mekhi Becton at left tackle, you would think the Jets are poised for a big improvement this season.

Although, when you take a look at the Jets' win total on FanDuel Sportsbook, it doesn't give you the same expectations. Sitting at just 6.5, the Jets' win total is less than the amount of games they won in 2019.

While the offensive line is a completely new group, they would have to flop pretty much across the board to be worse than what the team had in 2019, a line that ranked No. 31 in the NFL according to Football Outsiders.

While the Jets division could end up being tough, with a Bills team poised for a division title, a Patriots team that still has Bill Belichick and a Dolphins team that has made huge signings and improvements this offseason, the team has plenty of reason to be high on itself as well.

Only time will tell how the season pays out in New York, but if I'm a Jets fan, I certainly don't look at this team and think they're worse than last year's squad.
