New York Giants 2009 Odds Steady After Plaxico Burress News

New York Giants 2009 Odds

Plaxico Burress may be an important part of the New York Giants team but 2009/2010 odds certainly don't reflect this.  The New York Giants remained with +1100 or 11/1 odds of winning the 2010 Super Bowl after news of Burress's sentencing Thursday.

"The odds haven't changed at all," observed Gambling911.com's Don Shapiro.

The former Giants wide receiver who accidentally shot himself in the leg with an illegal gun last November, will be sentenced to two years in prison after pleading guilty Thursday to a weapons charge.

From the New York Times:

By taking the plea, Mr. Burress, who turned 32 last week, avoided what would have been a mandatory minimum sentence of three and a half years in prison if he had been convicted at trial of the original charge against him, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon. Instead, Mr. Burress pleaded to an attempted weapons possession charge, allowing for the lighter sentence.

"That offer is in keeping with our general plea practice with respect to similarly situated defendants," John P. Wolfstaetter, an assistant district attorney, said in court, adding that Mr. Burress had until his arraignment Thursday to accept the offer.

Mr. Burress, who will head to prison when he is officially sentenced on Sept. 22, will be eligible for release after slightly more than 20 months, his lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said.

"This is a very sad day because I think a very good man, who is a brilliant athlete, is unfortunately going to spend 20 months in prison," Mr. Brafman told reporters outside the courthouse. "After an agonizing period of discussion, Plaxico decided that he wanted to put this behind him as soon as possible."

There is every reason to believe the Giants are heading on a path to the Super Bowl.  They have a star quarterback in Eli Manning and their defense is air tight. 

Despite the loss of defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo to the St. Louis Rams, the defense looks as deep as they did in 2007 when the Giants won the Super Bowl.  The Giants promoted linebackers coach Bill Sheridan as the new defensive coordinator. 

On offense, the Giants led the NFL in rushing behind Brandon Jacobs, Ahmad Bradshaw and Derrick Ward, the later of whom has gone off to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
