NY Giants Betting Odds – NFL Football Future Lines

Let’s take a look at the numbers:

The Giants have so much talent, especially on the offensive and defensive lines, that it’s difficult to create any scenario that doesn’t have them at least playing for the NFC Championship.

While other teams scramble to find trench talent, the Giants front office thinks only about adding depth to the best offensive and defensive lines in the NFC. The D-Line will be especially dominant this season as everyone returns and the Jints have brought coals to Newcastle by adding Chris Canty and Rocky Bernard to a rotation already loaded with Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck, Mathias Kiwanuka, Barry Cofield and Fred Robbins.NY Giants 2009 NFL Football Future Lines

The linebacking group wasn’t all that great last season, and New York is hoping to bleed one last season out of veteran Antonio Piece. Newcomer Michael Boley adds some depth. Corey Webster heads a secondary that’s equal to any in the NFC East.

Giants bloggers are starting to whine for the return of Plaxico Burress, and in a way you can’t blame them for wanting Tom Coughlin to put his tail between his legs and welcome back the unrepentant handgun-toting wide receiver. NY was 11-1 with Burress and 1-4 without him last season. But the Jints sent out a strong signal by drafting WR Hakeem Nicks No. 1, and they also like 2008 reserve Domenik Hixon (43 catches for 596 yards in only 7 games).

Six-foot-four Brandon Jacobs is the lead running back, and with Derrick Ward now in Tampa Bay, Ahmad Bradshaw should get at least a few hundred carries. The Giants will be a run-first team if for no other reason than they don’t seem to completely trust QB Eli Manning, who has the third-worst completion average in the NFL over the past three seasons and has never reached 61 percent in a full year.

Surprising stat: The Giants did not score a special-teams touchdown last season, and didn’t allow one.

Team strengths: The D-Line’s signature is all over the Giants’ Super Bowl triumph over the Patriots a few years back, and nothing much has changed. They have depth that 31 other franchises can only dream about.

Team Weakness: It may be time for teams to start stacking the box defensively, choking off the running game and forcing Manning to throw the ball to untested wide receivers.

    Despite their receiver woes, the Giants are still in the hunt to return to the Super bowl. Eli Manning sets up behind a great offensive line and Steve Smith, Domenil Hoxon and Hakeem Nicks should step it up this season. The running game is solid with Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw and Kevin Boss rounds out the offense at tight end. New York’s defense is what makes them the best team in the running for the Super bowl. With a defensive line featuring Justin Tuck, Osi Umenyiora, and recently added Chris Canty. The linebackers all perform well in their roles, especially Michael Boley. There may not be a lot of familiar names in the secondary, but it’s an excellent group of solid if not spectacular players.

    Eli Manning will continue to throw bombs to his receivers for the Giants, though he will be missing one of his favorite targets in Plaxico Burress. This team felt the loss of Burress as the season wore on in 2008. New York drafted WR Hakeem Nicks in the first round this year, but the offense will once again feel the impact of Burress’ departure. The Giants defense will be solid, as Justin Tuck will continue to be a dominant force. The Giants will have a good running game with back Brandon Jacobs. All in all the Giants will not have quite enough offense to win the division. The Giants will finish the year with a record of 9-7.
