New York Jets Odds: How the Zach Wilson Injury Impacts Their Win Total

It appeared that disaster struck for the New York Jets last night. On the second possession of the game for New York, Zach Wilson left with a non-contact knee injury. Immediately, everyone's mind goes to the ACL.

Luckily, the Jets caught a break as Zach Wilson did not tear his ACL. Instead, he suffered a bone bruise and a torn meniscus. The timeline for that is just 2-4 weeks according to reports.

After the news of the injury last night, we saw the New York Jets odds shift for their win total. Here's how their 2022 win total odds looked after the Zach Wilson news from last night.

New York Jets Odds Breakdown

After the Zach Wilson injury, the New York Jets under 5.5 wins odds dropped from +130 to +100. They haven't moved since the announcement of the injury being minor but that is a dramatic enough change to make note of.

Last year, Wilson started 13 games for the Jets and went 3-10 with 9 touchdown passes, 11 interceptions, and a 69.7 rating. The Jets loaded up with talent in free agency and the draft to help their second-year signal caller as they need him to take a step forward in order to be competitive in 2022.

The Jets have made it abundantly clear that they are also more than comfortable with Joe Flacco, as head coach Robert Saleh still believes Flacco can start in this league. They also have Mike White on the roster who was the starter for the Jets upset win over the Bengals last season.
