Will the Giants beat the odds this year or add a disappointing second half to a string of lackluster seasons? A look at the NY Giants playoff odds is a good place to start answering that question.
It wasn’t going to be too hard for NY Giants to outperform their 2021 season when they won four games. In fact, thanks to a 7-4 start, they’ve already done that. The Giants haven’t made the playoffs since 2016 when they lost the Wild Card Game, but things are looking up this season.
During the offseason whispers started that the Giants could be one of the biggest sleepers of the season. The most important change to the Giants this year is the coaching staff. New head coach Brian Daboll and new GM Joe Schoen were key figures in the Buffalo Bills’ success in recent years, and Giants fans are hoping to see what they can do this season.
We think the team has a shot at surprising us all. The Giants have lost two in a row to the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys. Next up is a home game against the streaking Washington Commanders on Sunday, Dec. 4.

Here are the teams predicted to make the playoffs and their running odds at Caesars NY.

NY Giants Regular Season Update
The Giants had a chance to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Detroit by scoring a road upset of division rival Dallas on Thanksgiving Day, but the Cowboys dominated the second half en route to a 28-20 win.
Despite the two-game losing streak, the Giants still find themselves in playoff position. If they want to stay there, they’ll likely have to beat Washington on Sunday. It’s not a good sign, however, that DraftKings lists the Giants as 2.5-point underdogs despite this game being played on their home field.
The Commanders have won three in a row to surge into the playoff picture. This is a unique spot for Washington, as it is the first of two consecutive games it will play against the Giants. The Commanders are off next week when the Giants will play host to the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Giants were hot at the start of the season, and this is the time for them to rediscover that magic or risk falling out of the playoff picture.
