NFL Player Of The Week: Daniel Jones

After losing 40-0 to the Dallas Cowboys, Jones and the Giants Wake-Up

Daniel Jones’ player stats improved from a week ago in the New York Giants (1-1) come-from-behind win at the Arizona Cardinals, 31-28, after spotting the Cardinals a 20-point lead. Jones threw for 321 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. One area of concern is the three sacks New York allowed, pushing their season total to 10 overall. With every team in the NFC East standings winning, this victory was a must. Let’s get deeper into Daniel Jones’ stats and overall impact on the betting number.

Danny Dimes Shows Guts

Say what you want about the first six quarters of Daniel Jones’ 2023 season, the 26-year-old never seemed to be rattled. His 2023 NFL player stats page shows the former Duke quarterback with 63.08% completions with two touchdowns and three interceptions.

The statistics don’t break his composure, that same composure that saw his team outscored 60-0 before deciding they should start taking part in the scoring. That’s a critical note for bettors when putting your money either behind the Giants or a second-half wager.

You know that this is a kid that’s mentally strong no matter the environment. In addition to using his arm, Vanilla Vick ran for 58 yards on eight attempts. From a gambling standpoint, Jones is 31-24 ATS in his career (+4.67 units). The only season Jones failed to produce a profit for bettors was in 2019 (5-7 ATS), but his last four NFL seasons have been terrific covering 26 of 43 games.

As an underdog, Jones is 23-11 ATS (+10.26 units) and 13-4 ATS as a road dog. No other quarterback has produced more profit for bettors as a road dog, with Teddy Bridgewater (+4.50 units) a distant second. We conclude our Daniel Jones stats spotlight by giving you a look at the Giants’ upcoming schedule and determining how good of an investment New York will be for the rest of the season.

Great Win But The Schedule Is Daunting

Just as the Giants were celebrating a massive victory, a look ahead at the rest of their schedule left some saying they hoped the Giants enjoyed it. Next week, New York heads back out West again with a date against the San Francisco 49ers.

Depending on how you feel about the New England Patriots, the Giants will either be on the road, facing a division team, a potential playoff team, or a rival until week 12. From week nine through week 16, only two of those games will be at MetLife Stadium.

Let’s look at the Giants numbers against the NFL spread to see if there is much hope that betting on New York is worth the risk, even with a gutsy quarterback. First, if that offensive line doesn’t keep Jones upright, Tyrod Taylor will be taking snaps before too long. Last year was the first season that New York produced a profit against teams .500 or better (8-3, +4.36 units). Before that, bettors were just 12-20 ATS using that filter.

We’re not convinced that the Giants won’t fall back into old habits. Our suggestion is to continue going against New York at home. Since 2017, New York i 18-31 ATS at home (-14.59 units) and 13-23 ATS s a home dog. To conclude our look at Danial Jones stats progress, we suggest looking ahead to a home date against the Seattle Seahawks as a go-against spot for New York. All the best with your wagers this weekend.
