The dismal 2017 campaign of the New York Giants was a result of an aging quarterback and a plethora of injuries. Odds to Win Super Bowl LIII: New York football Giants 25-1?. Furthermore unless you believe that often injured Odell Beckham Jr. can avoid injury and the team’s first-round draft pick running back Saquon Barkley will perform to the level of Rookie of the Year status then it is difficult to imagine Eli Manning and company challenging for a postseason slot in the NFC.
2018 New York Giants Outlook
For those that didn’t follow the Giants or Manning a season ago it is worthy of a reminder that the former All Pro quarterback was benched late last season ending his consecutive starts streak at 210. In addition the franchise replaced a number of key figures in the front office and in the locker-room. Then-general manager Jerry Reese was fired as was head coach Ben McAdoo.
The negatives of the 2017 campaign will likely result in team positives moving forward but the current 25-to-1 odds that the Giants will claim the National League Football championship, a significant move from the organization’s 60-to-1 opening odds at Westgate of Las Vegas, requires far too many things going right and offers little to no value.
The overwhelming variable that results in the primary stumbling block for NFL franchises is overcoming injuries. This is due to the league’s roster limitations. And expecting Manning and Beckham Jr. to play 16 games in good health and a rookie running back that two weeks into the exhibition slate fighting injuries, makes New York a much longer shot than their current 25-to-1.
