New York Giants 2022 Predictions
Key Stat: New York Giants finished 4-13 last season
- Giants ended 2021 season in last place in NFC East
- Brian Daboll will be in his first season as Head Coach
- Giants drafted edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux, with the No. 5 pick
The New York Giants had a 2021 season to forget. New York ended the season in last place in the NFC East with a 4-13 record, then proceeded to fire their head coach and general manager shortly after the final game. There is some optimism in the air around the Giants headquarters that comes with any new regime, but there is widespread opinion around the league that the Giants had a very good off-season. New York had two first-round picks and went to work improving both lines by drafting Kayvon Thibodeaux at edge rusher with pick #5, then offensive tackle Evan Neal two picks later at #7 overall.
The big storyline to the Giants’ 2022 season will come down to whether starting quarterback Daniel Jones is going to be with the team after this season. The Giants quarterback is entering his fourth season, with the first three being marred by plenty of turnovers, up and down play, and tons of losses. Now, the question is whether most of those negatives were because of the team around the quarterback or Jones himself. The NFC East plans to be a much tougher division this year with Dallas as reigning division champs and Philadelphia and Washington picked to be much improved. The Giant’s schedule will consist of their 6 games vs their NFC East rivals, while their first six games on the schedule have road games at Tennessee and Green Bay, with home games against the Ravens and Cowboys. The Over/Under for New York this season is 7.5 wins, and we are taking the Under 7.5 wins as we see an improved season, but only a 6-11 campaign.
Key Stat: Giants have two playoff appearances in past 11 years
- Giants have one winning season since 2012
- The last playoff win for Giants was Super Bowl in 2011 season
- New York looking for first playoff appearance in six years
The second prop bet we are taking a look at for the NY Giants 2022 season is whether they make the playoffs. The Giants franchise has fallen on hard times the last decade, only making the playoffs once, when they lost the wild-card game in 2016. New York is definitely underdogs to make the postseason this year, with heavy odds favoring them being under .500 once again. If the Giants are going to make the postseason, Daniel Jones will have to take a big leap, Saquon Barkley needs to stay healthy, and their new head coach Brian Daboll needs to prove himself capable. We do believe that the Giants will have a better year, but there are too many teams to jump for them to make the postseason in 2022. We are going with the safe money and betting the N.Y. Giants miss the playoffs once again in 2022.
