    Team Outlook and Scouting Report

    SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

    They have a soft schedule and despite their low power ranking could have a better than expected season. The Giants are not contenders to win the Super Bowl at 200/1, 0.5%. They are one of 3 teams with these odds (#28 in the league). Their 0.2% chance is #25 in the league which is not high enough to be a good bet. In simulations, they win the NFC 0.6% of the time and are not a good value at 100/1, 1%. The Giants are averaging 6.8 wins per sim which makes them a solid bet to win over 6 games. At +500 the Giants are not a good value to make the playoffs with a 13.7% chance. Their odds of winning their division are 16/1, 5.9%. They win the division in 7.8% of simulations. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #13 in the NFC.
