The New York Giants have been a bit of a doormat in the NFL the past six seasons, posting just one winning season since 2012 and posting a .438 winning percentage for the 2010-2019 decade, their lowest win/loss percentage since the Wilderness Years of the 1970s.
So, it makes perfect sense that the oddsmakers, who now have the full NFL regular season schedule in their hands – have made the Giants favorites in just one game for the 2020 season. They are underdogs in 12 games and pick’em in three.
