Giants 2012-2013 NFL Futures Lines & Predictions

For a team that has won a couple of recent Super Bowls nobody gives the New York Giants much respect.  I don’t know if it s because their coach isn’t that likable, their QB isn’t as good as his older brother, or what, but it seems like the world is convinced that the Giants are going to drop to third fiddle in their division watching Philadelphia and Dallas overtake them.  

New York Giants
2011 Record:  13-7 (including playoffs)
2011 ATS Record:  12-7-1 (including playoffs)
2012 Futures:
Super Bowl:  +2000
Conference:  +1100
Division:  +210
Win Total:  9.5

I think all three teams are going to fight it out for the NFC East and with the odds the Giants are drawing they might be the best value.  Super Bowl hangover and all.

QB Eli Manning is underrated.  No matter how many games he wins or the numbers he puts up no one wants to give him much credit.  Despite reputations the Giants have become a passing team.  They have a very good and deep receiving corps that might finally be getting some pub after winning the big game.  On the ground Ahmad Bradshaw is average as far as feature backs go but I loved the selection to David Wilson to add some speed to the running game – he is looking good in preseason too.  I think he is a dark horse Offensive Rookie of the Year selection.

The Giants are still very strong on defense too with one of the best pass rushes in the league.  Many think DE Jason Pierre-Paul has the potential to be the best edge rusher going and he is still getting better…When you need a clutch play by a lineman it always seems like Justin Tuck delivers.  [soliloquy id=”82219″]

The real difference this year, that might make them better, is the play at cornerback.  Terrell Thomas is looking to get back to the form that delivered 10 picks in the two seasons before sitting out last year due to injury.  Last year’s top pick Prince Akamura looked tentative after being injured himself but should be better with more experience under his belt.

The Giants can be a Jekyll and Hyde team, looking their best against some of the best teams in the League but then losing both of their games against Washington last year.  This team was the underdog in three straight playoff games and won them all outright including the Super Bowl.  I think that is the best spot to play them this year.  It may not happen often so be ready to pounce.

Prediction:  8-8
Conference:  7th
Division:  2nd
Win Total:  Under
