If you’re in New York City, you can go to tonight’s big Jets-Texans Monday Night Football game for about the price of an average meal.There are more than 4,000 tickets still left on StubHub. Around 2,600 cost less than $100, 1,100 cost less than $45, and 172 are on sale for $20 or less.
The low price is $15 right now (update: $17), but we’d expect that to dip lower as sellers get more and more desperate this afternoon.
SeatGeek told Deadspin this morning that the average ticket is going for $36, which is about 1/3 of what the average price was before the Jets got hammered by the 49ers last Sunday.
In addition to the tickets nose-diving on the secondary market, reports surfaced over the weekend that 12,000 tickets remain unsold.
So what’s the deal?
First of all, the sheer size of the stadium (~80,000 seats) makes sellouts tough to attain. The 68,000 tickets that the Jets have reportedly sold for the game is still higher than the average attendance for 12 other NFL teams.
And then you have the fact that the Jets just aren’t inspiring much confidence right now. They are a nine-point underdog tonight, and are without their two best players (Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes). They haven’t played well since Week One, and it’s hard to imagine them kicking into gear tonight against arguably the best team in the NFL.
You can monitor the price here. We’re guessing the low ticket dips under $10 by kickoff.
