The New York Jets currently have the longest playoff drought in both the NFL and in North American professional sports at 12 seasons. To give you some additional context about how absurd this is — the Denver Broncos have the second-longest playoff drought in the NFL at seven seasons. The difference between the Jets and Broncos is equal to the league’s fourth-longest active playoff drought. Poor Jets fans.

While this year’s featured team on Hard Knocks is expected to be in playoff contention, BetMGM Sportsbook has reported much action on the contrary. According to a press release from the betting operator, they have received more bets on the Jets than any other team to miss the playoffs this season. Currently, 78% of all the Jets’ playoff wagers are on them to not make the postseason, which is 16% higher than the next closest team.
What Are the Jets’ Odds To Make the Playoffs?
At BetMGM, New York is currently -140 to make the playoffs this season and +115 to continue their postseason drought. These odds are largely due to their upgrade at quarterback, rising star wide receiver Garrett Wilson, and having one of the most talented defenses in the NFL.
Expectations for the Jets haven’t been this high since they made the AFC Championship Game in the 2010 season, their last postseason appearance. However, despite all the hype, the Jets will have a difficult road to contention in the ultra-competitive AFC. They will also have one of the most difficult schedules in the NFL this season, making it far from a lock that they live up to this season’s lofty expectations.
