Plenty of Jets fans think that there will be a new starting quarterback for their team come next season. Apparently, Vegas thinks so as well.
The consensus is that Geno Smith will not be the starter for New York in 2015, this after two lackluster seasons to start his NFL career. And the oddsmakers don’t think that Michael Vick is the solution either, at least based off of their odds.
Metro New York asked Bovada – theone-stop destination for online gambling: casino, poker rooms, sportsbook, racebook and more – their betting odds for who will start under center for the Jets come Week 1 next year. The oddsmakers see the category of ‘Any Other Quarterback,’ a classification that would include players such as Sam Bradford, Robert Griffin III and Drew Stanton among others, as the most likely scenario at ½ odds.
But the most likely of the named quarterbacks is Smith, at 5:1. Here’s a look at the full odds provided by Bovada and obtained by Metro, including highly touted draft picks Marcus Mariota (Oregon) and Jameis Winston (Florida State):
Geno Smith: 5/1
Marcus Mariota: 6/1
Jameis Winston: 9/1
Michal Vick: 12/1
Brian Hoyer: 12/1
Any Other Quarterback: 1/2
And for kicks and giggles, Tim Tebow is at 33/1 odds to start for the Jets next year. Because, of course, there can never be enough Tebow.
