According to data provided by SportsBetting.ag, which has spread records that date back to 1980, the 16.5-point game line makes the Giants the biggest underdog they have ever been.

This is also the highest spread for a Thursday night game in league history, with previous highs of +15 coming in 1992 (Giants at Cowboys) and 2016 (Rams at Seahawks).

New York's previous high as an underdog was 15.5 points, which occurred in 1980 and 1995. The G-Men have been underdogs of two touchdowns or more six times since 1980, and all of the games were on the road:
 
Year     Opponent     Result     Spread
1980     @Chargers     L 44-7     +15
1983     @Redskins     L 31-22     +15.5
1992     @Cowboys     L 30-3     +15
1995     @49ers     L 20-6     +15.5
1995     @Cowboys     L 21-20     +15
2019     @Patriots     ?     +16.5
 
The Giants' biggest regular season upset came in 2017 when they beat Denver as 13.5-point underdogs. Another major upset by the team came in Super Bowl XLII when it defeated the Patriots 17-14 as a 12.5-point dog.

Tom Brady is just 1-5 against the spread in his last six games against the Giants. However, The Patriots are 8-1 against the spread in their past nine games when favored by two or more touchdowns, including a 2-1 mark this year.

Thursday night's spread was initially posted at +15 last Sunday, but has steadily increased, reaching as high as +17 at SportsBetting.ag (www.sportsbetting.ag).

"You can't really blame the bettors for backing the Pats," said head oddsmaker Adam Burns. "They look like league juggernauts once again, and the Giants are dealing with tons of injuries and they have a rookie quarterback. We're going to take a big loss to start the week if New England covers Thursday."
