is a new era for the New York Giants. Last year’s 4-12 record resulted in head coach Pat
Shurmur getting fired and Joe Judge replacing him. It will also be the first
year that newly-retired Eli Manning isn’t on the roster since 2004. Judge and
second-year QB Daniel Jones will hope to improve the Giants and get back into
the postseason for the first time since 2016.
it currently stands, New York’s over/under win total stands at 6.5 games at Payperhead 247. We’ll take
a look at how the offseason has fared for them, as well as what their schedule
in the fall looks like, before giving our official pick.
hiring of Judge is the biggest move, but New York also did a fair amount of
spending in free agency. Their biggest spending came on the defensive side, signing
Panthers CB James Bradberry and Packers LB Blake Martinez to three-year deals.
Packers LB Kyler Fackrell was also brought in for a season. On the other side,
49ers TE Levine Toilolo was signed for two years to help with blocking, while
Cowboys OT Cameron Fleming is there to provide depth. Other notable deals
signings include Titans RB Dion Lewis, Redskins QB Colt McCoy, and Patriots S
represents the biggest departure after 16 seasons with the Giants and two Super
from him, the team also cut a couple of vets in LB Alec Ogletree and S Antoine
Bethea, both of whom are still unsigned. OT Mike Remmers signed a deal with the
Chiefs, WR Cody Latimer left for the Redskins, and LB Deone Bucannon agreed to
join the Falcons. One question mark is EDGE Markus Golden, who is still a free
agent and may return to New York.
10 total selections, the Giants came out of the draft with a couple of new
York took Georgia OT Andrew Thomas with their first pick, who can start on
either the left or right side right away, and then selected Alabama S Xavier
McKinney to replace the departed-Bethea. In addition, New York picked UConn OT
Matt Peart a day UCLA CB Darnay Holmes. They had six other selections after
that, highlighted by Oregon OG Shane Lemieux, Penn State LB Cam Brown, and
Minnesota LB Carter Coughlin.
Giants, along with the rest of the NFC East, will play the NFC West and AFC North
this season. They’ll also have two at-large games against other third-place
finishers from last year, the Bears and the Buccaneers. Overall, it’s the
seventh-easiest schedule according to strength of schedule, with their
opponents combining for a .482 winning percentage in 2019. However, both the
Redskins and Cowboys have an easier schedule.
York will get tested right away when they host the Steelers for the season’s
first Monday night game. After a road game in Chicago against the Bears, they’ll
host the 49ers and visit the Rams before their first divisional game on the
road against the Cowboys. Beginning in Week 5, they’ll play a division rival
five times in six weeks, including a Thursday night game at Philadelphia,
before their Week 11 bye. They’ll then have back-to-back road games, including
a trip to Seattle to play the Seahawks. However, they’ll end with three of
their last four games at home, the exception being Week 16 against the Ravens.
no doubt that the Giants improved with the signings of Bradberry and Martinez
as well as the selections of Thomas and McKinney. They’ll join a young team
highlighted by Jones and star RB Saquon Barkley, as well as key contributors
like WRs Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate, DL Leonard Williams, and S Jabrill
Peppers. They hope that everyone continues to take steps forward under the
new leadership of Judge and shocks people after winning just nine games total
in the last two years.
what’s the better bet this year for Big Blue? Even though the strength of
schedule is favorable, New York will likely be an underdog in all but perhaps
two or three contests. They are still a very young team who doesn’t have a
very good pass rush or an above-average offensive line. In my opinion, it
will take sizable leaps from many of the players, especially Jones, to catapult
the Giants to seven wins or more. So I’m taking the UNDER 6.5 wins for New York
