What happens when a team wins a total of 12 games over three seasons? The bookmakers give them zero respect. That’s the case of the New York Giants in 2020.

Big Blue has been anything but big of late, winning just four games last year, five the year before and three in 2017. As a result, the oddsmakers at have made the Giants favored in just one game in ht early point spreads released for the 2020 season – the final game of the season at home agains the Washington Redskins.

New York Giants
Notes: Favored in 1, dogs in 12, and three pick’ems.

New York Giants +6½ @ Los Angeles Rams
New York Giants +7 @ Philadelphia Eagles
New York Giants +8½ @ Seattle Seahawks

The Giants are pick’em at Washington, Cincinnati and Arizona. Most likely those games will have some type of a point spread come the week of the game.

Last season, the Giants were favored five times: by 3 over Washington at home and by 1 on the road: by 3.5 over Arizona and Miami at home, and by 3 over the Jets which was an away game.

They lost to the Jets and Cardinals outright and covered the spread in the other three games. Overall, the Giants were 7-9 against the spread in 2019.

So far the season is set to begin on time but nothing is certain at the moment so all of this could change.
