The New York Giants kicked off the start of the new league year with a couple of controversial signings. The biggest was giving QB Daniel Jones a 4 year, $160 million contract with $82 million guaranteed in the first two years. The next domino to fall was securing Saquon Barkley’s services for at least one more year by giving him the franchise tag. The Giants have gone on to add WR Parris Campbell, but it’s been a quiet offseason otherwise. The New York Giants odds to win the Super Bowl have increased from +4000 to +4500 following free agency.

New York Giants odds and betting news
The Giants are finalizing a deal to acquire tight end Darren Waller from the Las Vegas Raiders, NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero reported Tuesday.
New York is sending Las Vegas the No. 100 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, initially acquired in the Kadarius Toney trade. Waller generated back-to-back 1,100-yard seasons in 2019 and 2020. However, injuries have derailed him over the past two years.
Notable Daniel Jones props at FanDuel Sportsbook ahead of his Divisional round matchup with the Eagles:
218.5 passing yards: -114 over/-114 under
43.5 rushing yards: -114 over/-114 under
1.5 passing TDs: +164 over/-225 under
Jones put the Giants on his back last week with a career-best performance in his first playoff start. The matchup against the Eagles is expected to be more challenging. Philadelphia allowed the second-fewest passing yards to opposing quarterbacks during the regular season. Notably, the Eagles did allow the fourth-most quarterback rushing yards. Jones certainly can run and make plays with his legs.
The Giants have a potential mismatch with their rushing attack against the Eagles in their Divisional Round matchup. New York presented the No. 8 rushing offense DVOA and the seventh-most yards per rush during the regular season. Philadelphia graded out as the No. 20 rushing defense DVOA while surrendering the ninth-most yards per rush in the league.
Saquon Barkley’s rushing yards prop is set at 69.5, with the best price for him to score an anytime TD on FanDuel Sportsbook (-105).
The Giants will face their division rival Eagles as 7.5-point underdogs for their Divisional Round playoff matchup. The over/under is set at 48.5.
The Giants went into Minnesota and upset the Vikings with an impressive 31-23 win. New York played Philadelphia with all their starters back in week 14 and lost by a score of 48-22. This game could be much closer as Giants quarterback Daniel Jones is clicking on all cylinders while Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts has been dealing with a shoulder injury that has clearly affected his play.
The Giants have a potential mismatch with their passing attack on Wild Card Weekend against the Vikings.
New York enters this matchup with the ninth-best offense EPA and the No. 10 pass offense DVOA. Minnesota has been dreadful in the secondary, surrendering the most receptions and yards to opposing wide receivers in 2022. The Vikings have also allowed the fourth-most points per game (25.1) this season.
Notable Richie James Props at FanDuel Sportsbook ahead of Wild Card Weekend:
46.5 Receiving Yards: -114 Over/-114 Under
Anytime TD Scorer: +250
James will face a burnable secondary in the Vikings that specifically struggles against speedy receivers. The Vikings allow the third-most yards per pass and yards per play this season. Over his last seven games, James is averaging 54 yards receiving and gaining the trust of quarterback Daniel Jones.
Notable Saquon Barkley Props at FanDuel Sportsbook ahead of Wild Card Weekend:
71.5 Rushing Yards: -114 Over/-114 Under
22.5 Receiving Yards: -114 Over/-114 Under
Anytime TD Scorer: -120
Barkley will encounter a Minnesota rush defense ranked as the second-best in football during the regular season by PFF. Although the matchup is sub-optimal, Saquon went over this rushing and receiving total in his lone meeting against the Vikings during the regular season.
The Giants will travel to face off against the Vikings on Wild Card Weekend. The opening line for this contest lists New York as a three-point underdog. The over/under is set at 48.5
Minnesota came out on top 27-24 in its lone regular-season meeting against New York. These two teams have each won close games this year. The Vikings posted an outstanding 11-0 record in games decided by one possession, while the Giants come in not too far behind with an 8-4-1 record.

How to bet on the New York Giants
The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:
- Giants -105
- Falcons +110
The Giants are considered favorites in this matchup (indicated by -105), requiring a $105 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). The Falcons are the underdog in this matchup, paying out $210 total for a $100 bet ($110 in winnings). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.
Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:
- Giants -2.5 (-110)
- 49ers +2.5 (-110)
In this example, New York is favored by 2.5 points, indicated by “-2.5.” If the Giants win the game 23-20, the Giants (-2.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the 49ers keep the game within three and lose 19-17, the 49ers (+2.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.
Point total (over/under)
The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, the Giants’ Week 5 matchup with the Dallas Cowboys had a projected point total of 47.5 points. The Giants lost the game 37-34, resulting in 71 total points. Those who bet the over on the point total that week would have cashed out.
The 2020 Giants fielded both a stiff defense and a lackluster offense at times. That combination resulted in games involving the Giants having relatively low projected point totals, often between 42 and 46 points. However, the over/under was determinant on the opponent; their game against Cleveland, for instance, had a higher point total because of the Browns’ ability to score.
In-play and live betting
Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Giants (-225) were heavily favored against the Lions (+190) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Giants to win would win just $4.44.
However, say the Giants fell to a big 17-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Lions, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Giants to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take New York (+130) at halftime and the Giants pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $4.44 (plus the initial $10 bet).
This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Lions (+190) in that game, but New York jumps out to a 10-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on New York (-270) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.
Parlays and teasers
You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.
Futures are long-term bets that can range from an offseason to a full season (or beyond). Team win totals, award winners, and player performance are common futures.
Giants 2021 recap
Record: 4-13, Last in NFC East
Record ATS: 6-11
Over/under record: 5-11-1
Another Giants era is done. History. Kaput. The worst stretch in franchise history, led by Joe Judge and Dave Gettleman, is ideally over and the team can focus on moving in the right direction. The Giants were already noncompetitive under Jones, but when he went down with injury, the team turned into an embarrassment. 2021 may be the season Giants fans want to bury more than any other in Giants history. At the very least, it is over.
