Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

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.
