New York Giants Season Wins Prediction, Betting Odds 2017

Written by:
Published on:

The reigning New York Giants are favored to UNDER 9 regular season games in 2017.  The price was -125 on the UNDER and around EVEN on the OVER depending on the book.

Yahoo Sports offered three key questions heading into the new season surrounding the New York Giants.

Is Jason Pierre-Paul all the way back? 

Pierre-Paul appears to be back to at least 2014 levels, prior to a fireworks accident that severely injured his hand, when he had 12.5 sacks and three forced fumbles. 

How Well Will the New Catchers Fit in?

The Giants’ passing offense last season was Odell Beckham Jr. and not much else. Insert Brandon Marshall and Evan Engram.

After Marshall asked the New York Jets to release him during the Combine after two seasons, he signed with the Giants. Marshall might be 33, but he can still be an asset, particularly with a quarterback like Eli Manning (as opposed to Ryan Fitzpatrick, Bryce Petty and Geno Smith, the quarterbacks he played with last year).

Engram, the 23rd pick in this year’s draft, is built more like a tight end at 6-foot-3, 235 pounds, but moves more like a receiver and is expected to have an instant impact.

Who Will Run the Ball?

New York totaled just 1,412 rushing yards as a team last season, 29th in the NFL.

Then-rookie Paul Perkins stepped up fairly well in a limited role; he averaged 4.1 YPC, and added 15 catches. Perkins looks like he could step into the starter’s role, but a healthy Vereen will certainly be in line for touches too. At his best, Vereen is a multi-tool, third-down-type back (remember his 12 receptions in Super Bowl XLIX), which can certainly help an offense that had its share of difficulties on third down last year.
