The New York Giants are one of the most difficult teams in the NFL to figure out. The team always seems to be in contention to make the playoffs, but often falls just short. In other situations when they seem like they won’t make the playoffs, they barely squeak in and then make a big run in the playoffs. This includes two Super Bowl championships in the past ten years. While many publications are concerned about the Giants, one sports analysis (http://www.ibtimes.com/new-york-giants-2016-season-prediction-betting-odds-preview-top-players-ahead-week-1-2409379) thinks that the Giants will have some success this year.
The analysis believes that the Giants will benefit greatly from many of the offseason moves that they made. The Giants are starting under a new fresh coaching staff and spent over $100 million on guaranteed contracts this past offseason. The players that they signed will greatly improve their defense, offensive line, and running game. The Giants will continue to be led offensively by Eli Manning and Odell Beckham, both of which are expected to have big years.
While the Giants are not considered one of the best teams in the conference, they should have a very good chance at winning the division. The NFC East is widely considered the worst division in the NFC, if not the NFL. The Dallas Cowboys were previously considered the favorites to win the division title, but the recent injury to Tony Romo has a lot of experts concerned about the team’s ability to succeed. Both of the other divisional rivals, the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles are currently in transition with new leadership and will likely have some rough patches this year.
Overall, the publication believes that the Giants will win 9 games and lose 7, which should be good enough to win the division by a game or two. The Giants will then likely have a home game in the NFC playoffs Divisional Round, in which they would play a top Wild Card team. While they may not be favorites to go far, the Giants will have the experience and depth to make a run in the playoffs if they can get in.
