Super Bowl Path: New York Giants Future Betting Odds
New York Desperate for Some Positive Momentum
After another 13-loss season in 2021 (their fifth-straight year with double-digit defeats) — the New York Giants have a new coach (Brian Daboll) but much of the same team as they try to right the ship and break out of a never-ending rebuild. Daniel Jones has to show some development and growth in his fourth NFL season while Saquon Barkley needs to stay healthy and bounce back to his Rookie of the Year form. So, the New York Giants future betting odds are appropriately subdued heading into another campaign that could be rough.
What sticks out about the Giants from last season is how bad they were on offense. The New York Giants stats on that side of the ball were abysmal. They had the second-worst offense by both yardages and scoring with the passing game being particularly bad.
New York posted the second-fewest passing yards, third-fewest passing touchdowns, and fourth-most interceptions. It didn’t help that the running game and defense, as a whole – were comfortably in the bottom third of the NFL. The two-year Joe Judge tenure was a disaster, culminating in a 4-13 year in which the Giants easily went under their 5.5 win over/under the figure.

Jones Could be Playing for His Job
- Passing Yards: 3750.5 (-105o)
- Passing Touchdowns: 21.5 (-125o)
- Interceptions: 11.5 (-110o)
It’s put up or shut up time for Jones, who has struggled each of the last two seasons and who the Giants have put a lot of faith into. His turnover issues have been front and center, as his touchdown/interception ratio since 2020 is a mediocre 21:17 and he has fumbled 17 times in those two campaigns to boot.
The athleticism is there for sure (he ran for 423 yards in 2020 and just under 300 yards in 2021) — but the passing numbers must be better and the New York Giants future betting odds depend on it.
It would take a massive step forward for Jones to eclipse his personal over/under numbers in 2022. He only threw for 2,428 yards and 10 touchdowns last year albeit in 11 games due to a neck injury that cost him the final third of the season. Staying healthy has also been an issue for Jones who tends to be a little too aggressive when he scrambles. It’s lofty to expect him to throw for over 3,700 yards when his previous career high was 3,027. The touchdown number is more reachable even if he has combined for just 21 touchdowns over the past two years (in 25 games played).
In terms of NFL future odds., there are definitely safer bets you can take than Jones. In his favor, though, he really has nowhere to go but up at this point so things probably can’t get too much worse for him.
Barkley Needs to Stay on The Field
- Rushing Yards: 900.5 (-120o)
- Rushing Touchdowns: 7.5 (-115o)
In terms of unrealized potential, Barkley might be one of the most frustrating players in the NFL. It has been a disappointing couple of seasons for the former No. 2 overall pick who, thanks to injuries and underperformance, rushed for nearly as many yards in his incredible 2018 rookie campaign as he has in the three years since. Barkley had his worst season as a pro yet, from a production standpoint, in 2021. He ran for only 593 yards despite playing in 13 games, seeing his carries per game dip to 12.5 as the Giants tried to keep him healthy.
But, if New York is going to try and seriously compete in the NFC East and make good on the New York Giants future betting odds, then the Giants will have to take the training wheels off of their high-priced star and hope he can handle the workload. There’s a chance that Barkley’s many leg injuries have zapped him of the explosiveness that he came into the league with but he could also bounce back as he has been proclaimed healthy and is still as strong as ever. It’s just that 900 yards and seven touchdowns — he reached the end zone twice in 2021 — might not be attainable for him anymore.
