New York Jets’ Super Bowl LVIII odds with Aaron Rodgers

Though March Madness is on the verge of going into overdrive, the week’s biggest sports headline was Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers announcing that he wants to play for the New York Jets. He’s still signed with the Packers, so the Jets and the Packers need to work out a deal, but at this point it seems like a foregone conclusion that he’ll trade laurel green for hunter green. But will that affect the Jets’ title chances? Let’s see what the odds makers think.
After Super Bowl LVII ended a month ago, the Jets opened at +2500 to win next year’s Super Bowl, according to odds published by FanDuel. This puts them well behind the favorites Kansas City (+600), Buffalo (+850), Philadelphia (+900), Cincinnati (+900) and San Francisco (+900).
FanDuel raised jets to +1500
But now that it looks like the future Hall of Famer will be a Jet on the first ballot, FanDuel has raised Jets to +1500 (some other books have them at +1400, but we’ll try to be consistent). Still not among these five leaders, but definitely next in line.
Interestingly, Rodger’s announcement of his intentions on The Pat McAfee Show didn’t actually move the needle, if at all. On Wednesday, before the show, the Jets were somewhere between +1400 and +1800 to lift the Lombardi Trophy, meaning a trade for Rodgers was already baked into the odds. Jets Brass had already met with him, so it was believed an eventual trade was inevitable.
With Rodgers nearing the end of his career, a strong defense, and both reigning AP Offensive and Defensive Rookies of the Year, the Jets appear primed to at least make their first playoff appearance since 2010 .
