Jets vs Seahawks prediction and preview of the game
Seattle hasn’t looked good ever since that trip to Munich in November. The Seahawks started the 2022/2023 season 6-3 but are now 7-8 after losing 5 out of their last 6 games. Staying true to their Cinderella story, it looks like their clock has struck midnight. Seattle is still alive when it comes to making the playoffs, but this looks like a long shot right now. The Seattle Seahawks odds to make the playoffs currently sit at +290. Not very optimistic.
With the Jets, it’s been a way better season than their previous few. However, QB Zach Wilson’s play has been the root of many heated debates. It seems like the public has finally arrived at the conclusion that the former No. 2 pick is simply no good. Backup Mike White has outclassed him in every category when starting a game.
Not only that, but it seems like the whole Jets’ locker room has responded well to White starting games and not Wilson. This looks like something you can’t come back from and Zach’s tenure with the New York team might be coming to an end. Over their last 10 games, the Jets have covered the spread 5 times but, three of their 5 failed covers came at home.

Players to watch in the Jets vs Seahawks January 1st match
Our Jets vs Seahawks prediction wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t highlight the key performers. These are the two players our experts will keep an eye on. You should as well.
New York Jets
Mike White: This is yet another game in which Mike White will start at quarterback for his team. The New York Jets odds to win the game on the money line dropped a little bit but not because of this news. We expect the offense to function well as there will be no wind and the temperature will be in the 40s. If White performs well, watch out.
DK Metcalf: The big wideout for the Seahawks has not scored a TD in his last 2 games. This is the time to step up especially with Tyler Lockett still being out. We all know that Ken Walker is the new toy in that Seattle offense, but the veteran wide receiver has to deliver if the Seahawks are to have any playoff aspirations.
Our best Jets vs Seahawks picks and predictions for the game on Sunday
Here are the top two Jets vs Seahawks predictions that we have for you. Check them out.
NY Jets spread betting: Jets to cover -1.5 @ -110
This line moved from -3.0 to -1.5 and now we like the Jets. Initially, it looked like it will go up even more through the key number all the way to -3.5. This wasn’t the case as a lot of money was bet on the Seahawks. Now the action is a little bit more even but at this spread, we are backing the New York Jets to cover and win the game.
It just looks like the Seahawks do not have a lot left in the tank. Geno Smith will make his 1-2 crucial mistakes and the Jets will win at least by a field goal. As mentioned above, the Jets are poised to make a playoff run and with Mike White under center the whole team plays better.
Jets vs Seahawks prediction on the total: Over 42.5
This total looks a little bit conservative to us. We reckon we are buying the total low right now. The last two games the Seahawks played did not go over 34 points. With the Jets, it’s the last three games that failed to surpass 37 points.
So, it’s very easy to assume that this will be a low-scoring game too. However, the weather conditions are going to be favorable for a decent passing game. Both quarterbacks like to throw downfield and to take chances. We also don’t expect a conservative game plan from any of the two coaches.
The Jets playoff chances depend heavily on winning the game, so we expect them to come out guns blazing. The Seahawks are currently the 8th seed in the NFC and this win is vital to their playoff hopes. None of the teams will hold back.
