No one is expecting the 2-6 New York Giants to go on an unconscious run and make something of this sorry season. The bookmakers are betting against that, too, as they are now 500-1 to win Super Bowl LIV in February as per betonline.ag.
That is down from 250/1 last week before they lost to the Detroit Lions, 31-26, on Sunday.
The odds on the Giants winning the NFC East and the NFC Championship are getting more distant as well.
The NFC East is still very much in play, but not for the Giants. The 4-3 Dallas Cowboys are the favorites at 2/3, follows by the 4-4 Philadelphia Eagles at 6/5. The Giants have fallen to 20/1 from 16/1 last week, and the 1-7 Washington Redskins are 500/1.
They are 250/1 to win the NFC Championship, tied for next to last with the Atlanta Falcons and ahead of only the Redskins, who are the long shots at 2500/1.
The New England Patriots (8-0) are the favorites (9/4) to repeat as Super Bowl champs, followed by the New Orleans Saints at 5/1 and the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers, who are both 8/1.
If the season ended today, the NFC seeds would be San Francisco, New Orleans, Green Bay, Dallas, Seattle, and Minnesota.
In the AFC, New England would be the top seed followed by Indianapolis, Baltimore, Kansas City, Buffalo, and Houston.
