Sure, the New York Giants finished 6-10 last season, but they don’t have to improve that much to at least win the NFC East. Below, we look at the New York Giants 2022 Super Bowl 56 odds, with NFL futures picks and predictions.
Due to a weak division, the G-Men only missed the playoffs by one game in 2020. They beat the visiting Dallas Cowboys 23-19 in a must-win, regular-season finale, but the Washington Football Team (7-9) won the division later in the day when they beat the Philadelphia Eagles 20-14 in Philly.
The Giants had Under bettors cashing at the windows by finishing with the league’s best Under mark at 13-3 last season. Against the spread, they were 9-7.

Giants’ offseason recap
General manager “Trader Dave” Gettleman surprised many on draft day when he traded back twice. He dealt the No. 11 overall pick (eventually QB Justin Fields) to the Chicago Bears for the No. 20 pick and a fifth-rounder along with a 2022 first-rounder and 2022 fourth-rounder. New York ended up drafting Florida WR Kadarius Toney with the 20th pick.
Gettleman also swapped second-round picks with the Miami Dolphins, dropping from No. 42 to No. 50, which the Giants used on Georgia OLB Azeez Ojulari.
Behind such moves, the Giants saved money, claimed they still drafted the players they wanted and added future draft assets.
Key free-agent additions who are penciled in as starters include WR Kenny Golladay, WR John Ross, CB Adoree’ Jackson, LB Reggie Ragland and DT Danny Shelton. They also added QB Mike Glennon and RB Devontae Booker, who will serve as backups/insurance policies to QB Daniel Jones and RB Saquon Barkley.
Key subtractions include RB Wayne Gallman, WR Golden Tate, DT Dalvin Tomlinson RG Kevin Zeitler and LB Kyler Fackrell.

New York Giants Super Bowl 56 and 2021 NFL futures picks
In the not-so-very-tough NFC East, the Giants are worth backing to WIN THE DIVISION (+500) and to REACH THE PLAYOFFS (+225).
It’s very surprising that New York is the longest shot in the division, behind favorite Dallas (+100), Washington (+300) and Philadelphia (+425).
Don’t waste a donation on the Giants winning the Super Bowl (+8000). However, a small wager on WINNING THE NFC CHAMPIONSHIP (+3500) is reasonable – if everything goes just right – and would be fun to brag about.
Rolling the dice on the above futures would suggest New York would also eclipse the win total of 7, but I’m not interested in laying the -140 juice.
