Gase Has Best Odds to Be Next NFL Coach Fired

According to the odds, New York Jets head coach Adam Gase has the best odds to be fired next.

The 2020 NFL season is only five weeks old, but a pair of head coaches have already received their walking papers. So, what are the odds on the next coach to lose his job this year? According to the latest from oddsmakers, New York Jets bench boss Adam Gase is the likeliest candidate.

Gase is the -150 favorite to be fired next at BetOnline with Matt Patricia (+250), Doug Marrone (+275), Anthony Lynn (+900) and Mike Zimmer (+900) behind him. Bill O’Brien became the first coach to get the boot when the Houston Texans let him go on October 5, with ex-Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn following suit shortly after on October 11.

Can Gase Keep His Job?

On the heels of a disappointing 2019 campaign that saw the Jets go 7-9 and miss the playoffs, many NFL pundits thought Gase’s time with the franchise was over. But Jets owner Woody Johnson gave Gase a vote of confidence, declaring he would be back with the team in 2020.

The Jets are off to a horrendous 0-5 start to the season and are set to battle it out with the crosstown Giants for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

On October 12, Gase said he was open to giving up play-calling duties after the Jets’ 30-10 loss to the Cardinals. Just two days later, he told the media that he had spoken with the coaches under him on the Jets staff and said they agreed the head coach was the right guy for the job.

This team does not look like it’s going to come anywhere close to contending in the AFC for the foreseeable future. Fans have been showing up to the Jets’ practice facility to protest Gase’s ongoing presence – something that’s even more incredible considering we’re in the middle of a global pandemic.

The chances of Gase maintaining his job next season are slim to none, and it seems to be more a question of when, not if, he will be fired. The oddsmakers are smart to make him the favorite for this prop.

Patricia Looks to Be on Thin Ice in Detroit

When the Lions hired Patricia to be their head coach in 2018, expectations were that Patricia would bring “the Patriot way” to the Motor City. The ex-Patriots defensive coordinator has failed to make an impact in Detroit, though, and the Lions have looked like one of the worst teams in the NFL through five weeks.

Ahead of Week 6, Patricia is 10-25-1 in his head coaching career, all with Detroit. 

The Lions allowed the Packers to hang 42 points on their defense in Week 2, as Aaron Rodgers carved up the Lions secondary and Aaron Jones ran free against a lackluster rushing defense all game long. Detroit followed that up with a 26-23 win over Arizona in Week 3, but the Lions came back down to earth in the form of a setback to New Orleans in Week 4.

If things get worse before they get better this year, the Lions could opt for a new voice in the locker room. At +250, the value on betting Patricia on this prop is definitely there.
