The New York Jets haven’t even completed a deal to land four-time MVP Aaron Rodgers yet, but their odds to win the 2024 Super Bowl have changed dramatically since news broke that the Packers and Jets might be working on a deal.

Back on Feb. 13, the Jets were listed anywhere from +3000 to +2500 (at BetMGM, whose odds I’ll be using today) to a stunning +1600 (as of Wednesday, March 8, 2023).

Here are the latest odds from BetMGM:

Kansas City Chiefs +500

Buffalo Bills +850

San Francisco 49ers +850

Philadelphia Eagles +900

Cincinnati Bengals +900

New York Jets +1600

Dallas Cowboys +1800

Baltimore Ravens +2000

Los Angeles Chargers +2000

Jacksonville Jaguars +2500

Detroit Lions +2500

Los Angeles Rams +3000

Miami Dolphins +3000

Green Bay Packers +3500

Denver Broncos +3500

Cleveland Browns +4000

New Orleans Saints +4000

Minnesota Vikings +4000

Las Vegas Raiders +4000

New York Giants +4000

Chicago Bears +5000

Pittsburgh Steelers +6000

Carolina Panthers +6600

Washington Commanders +6600

New England Patriots +6600

Atlanta Falcons +6600

Tennessee Titans +8000

Tampa Bay Buccaneers +8000

Indianapolis Colts +15000

Arizona Cardinals +15000

Houston Texans +20000

What stands out when looking at the latest odds is that only five teams are favored over the Jets to win next year’s Super Bowl 58 (Sunday, Feb. 11, 2024 – which will mark the 20th anniversary of the Janet Jackson “wardrobe malfunction” halftime show, y’all) and the defending champion Chiefs are starting to separate themselves as THE team to beat as they seek a repeat. Kansas City would be the first franchise to win back-to-back Super Bowls since the Patriots pulled off the feat in 2004-2005 (SBs XXXVIII and XXXIX).

With that in mind, I’d say that bettors are getting too geeked up over the Jets, whether or not Rodgers is traded to New York – and that’s certainly not a given. Rodgers could choose to either return to the Packers or retire. He also had a so-so 2022 season (by his standards) with Green Bay: 3,695 yards passing, 26 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions. Respectable but not stellar for the 39-year-old QB who turns 40 on Dec. 2.

Plus, the Jets, don’t forget, went just 7-10 last year and finished with six straight losses, albeit to five playoff teams and the 9-8 Lions. As a result of their collapse,  they missed the playoffs for the 12th straight season.

Yeah, that was mostly the QBs’ fault and Rodgers would solve that problem immediately. There are several young studs to love on the Jets, beginning with last season’s Rookies of the Year, Sauce Gardner and Garrett Wilson. Plus, running back Breece Hall returns after a blazing start that was cut short by an ACL injury. Hall also cryptically hinted that Rodgers may well be on his way to New York to play in a different shade of green in 2023.

The Mean Green’s defense, meanwhile, is excellent. The Jets finished fourth overall last season in points per game allowed (18.6) and total yards allowed (311.1).

So, there’s lots to love.

However, do we really believe the Jets, Rodgers or not, are going to represent the AFC in next year’s Super Bowl, never mind win it?


The Chiefs (duh), Bills (ditto) and Bengals (uh-huh) are all better than the Jets and who’s to say the Chargers (dark horse with Herbert) and Ravens (depends on Lamar’s mindset) aren’t better bets? I think they are.

Finally, the Jets also face the sixth-hardest schedule in the NFL this season and the most difficult in the AFC East. The current odds to win that division, per BetMGM, are:

Bills +100

Jets +250

Dolphins +450

Patriots +650

You could throw some at the Jets to do that: Win the division if the Bills somehow have a down year.

But in the end … Sorry, Jets, fans, but all things considered, I’m staying away from the Jets to win the Super Bowl or represent the AFC next time. That’s too much to ask, even for Aaron Rodgers.
