Vegas has released the over/under odds for wins for each team in the NFL, with the New York Giants improving from 2017.
This past week, per Westgate SuperBook via CBS Sports Staff, Vegas has released the over/under odds for each NFL team in 2018. Coming off arguably the most disappointing season in franchise history with a 3-13 finish, the New York Giants are believed to improve this upcoming year.
Big Blue stands at an over/under of 7.5 wins in 2018. This prediction doesn’t make Big Blue a playoff team, but however, recognizes their strides towards overall improvement. The additions they’re making to the organization definitely aren’t going unnoticed.
A new GM in Dave Gettleman and a new head coach in Pat Shurmur will help introduce a new atmosphere to the organization as a whole, both on and off the field. First-round draft pick and future starting running back, Saquon Barkley along with a returning and healthy Odell Beckham Jr. also brings a noticed optimism to the team as well.
Although the expectations for Big Blue are better than what they finished last year, the expectations don’t exceed what was expected of going into last season. Bleacher Report power-ranked the Giants at No. 3 overall going into 2017, just behind the Seattle Seahawks at No. 2 and the New England Patriots at No. 1.
Big Blue only finishes at number three in the NFC East division however according to Vegas experts. The Philadelphia Eagles possess an over/under of 10.5 wins, tying with four other teams for the most in the NFL. The Steelers, Patriots, Packers, and Vikings also have an over/under of 10.5 as well. The Dallas Cowboys are right behind the Eagles in the NFC East at an over/under of 8.5 wins. The Washington Redskins thus contain the lowest odds in the division at 5.5 wins.
Even though it’s just an over/under, this notice of improvement should have a motivating impact on the organization. With the first preseason game a little over a week away, fans, players, and personnel are more than excited. Many believe it should be a bounce-back year for the G-Men. Now, all we can do is wait and see if they can walk-the-walk come this fall.
