Will 2020 Feature A Winless Or Undefeated Team?

Week 9 featured the tale of two teams. The undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers and the defeated New York Jets. The New York Jets are winless at 0-9 and have been a disaster this season.

However, Monday night football was a shockingly entertaining and offensive game. For the first time this season for the Jets, they lead in a game during the fourth quarter. This is just the second time all season that the Jets have covered the spread.

With a heroic act, Cam Newton was able to come back down ten points and defeat the lousy Jets at Metlife Stadium. The Jets showed fight for the first time in a long time even in a loss. However, this goodwill did not show on their record and sportsbooks continue to downgrade the Jets.

Currently, sportsbooks have odds on the Jets to go 0-16, Jets fans might want to look away. 

Odds on the Jets to go 0-16 in 2020

Yes +160

No -230 

Jets Remaining 2020 Schedule

Nov. 22, 4:05 pm at Los Angeles Chargers

Nov. 29, 1:00 pm vs Miami Dolphins

Dec. 6, 1:00 pm vs Las Vegas Raiders

Dec. 13, 4:05 pm at Seattle Seahawks

Dec. 20, 1:00 pm at Los Angeles Rams

Dec. 27th, 1:00 pm vs Cleveland Browns

Jan. 3 1:00 pm at New England Patriots

All of these teams are significantly better than the Jets. They will almost definitely be 0-15 going into week 17 against the Patriots. Expect Jarret Stidham to be quarterbacking the Patriots for that one. Neither team will want to win that game.

Odds On the Steelers To Go 16-0 in 2020

Yes +900 

No -3500 

Conversely to the Jets, the Pittsburgh Steelers have looked extremely formidable en route to an undefeated record. Bookmakers are not nearly as bullish on the Steelers as they are bearish on the Jets.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are undefeated at 9-0 and have annihilated some very strong teams like the Browns and Eagles. They have also fought for wins against the Baltimore Ravens and Tennessee Titans.

The Steelers remaining schedule is not very easy either.

Steelers Remaining 2020 Schedule

Week 10: Nov. 15, 4:25 pm vs Cincinnati Bengals

Week 11: Nov. 22, 1:00 pm at Jacksonville Jaguars

Week 12: Nov. 26, 8:20 pm  vs Baltimore Ravens

Week 13: Dec. 6, 1:00 pm vs Washington Football Team

Week 14: Dec. 13, 8:20 pm at Buffalo Bills

Week 15: Dec. 21, 8:15 pm at Cincinnati Bengals

Week 16: Dec. 27th, 1:00 pm vs Indianapolis Colts

Week 17: Jan. 3, 1:00 pm at Cleveland Browns

Another matchup against the Ravens and hosting the Colts will be extremely difficult. Expect this one to not hit, we have seen better teams than the Steelers try and fail at 0-16.
