SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: A
At 31-14-2 the Jets are greatly exceeding their money line projected win total of 27 wins. They have been better than expected on the road. Their 13-8-0 road record is +10% better than their expected win percentage. Their record over the last 3 weeks and win% (7-4-0, 64%) is better than their expected 55% win percentage. We have simulated the Jets playing every other team on neutral ice (with players who would be available in the playoffs) and they won an impressive 61.9% of the time (#5 in the league). Their peak rank was #3 in the league back on 12/18.
Their record is slightly better than it should be. Their average goal differential is +0.74 which ranks #4 in the league, but their rank based on points (per game) is #2. This is a relatively better home team than a road team. They are the #3 ranked team in goal differential in home games, vs #6 in road games. Their average goal differential in their past 8 games is +1.5 which ranks them #3 over this stretch, slightly better than the season overall.
