The New York Giants are coming off a surprising season in which they went 9-7-1. They made the playoffs and won their first playoff game in Minnesota before being steamrolled by the Eagles in the Divisional Round. The Giants recently re-signed quarterback Daniel Jones and defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence to help solidify the future.
FanDuel has numerous prop bets for Daniel Jones and the rest of the New York Giants, each of which is listed in plus money. We’ll take a look at a few player props along with team specific ones.
Thibodeaux, Barkley Props Close to Even Money
Edge Rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux has a prob bet close to even money. You can take Thibodeaux to have ten or more sacks on the year for +125 odds. The Giants edge rusher suited up for 14 games last year as a rookie. In those games, he had 4 sacks and 13 QB hits.
Last year, Thibodeaux finished fourth in Defensive Rookie of the Year rankings, behind guys that played in all 17 games. Thibodeaux is expected to take a big leap next season. If he’s going to reach double digit sacks, it will be critical that he stays healthy.
Saquon Barkley is another Giant with a prop bet close to even money. You can take him to reach the end zone ten or more times for +125 odds. Barkley is coming off a big season in which he ran for over 1,300 yards and had ten rushing touchdowns. It was the second time in his five year career that he had gone for at least ten touchdowns.
Barkley has had issues with injuries in the past, including a torn ACL that sidelined him for nearly the entirety of 2020. If you’re going to take Barkley to reach the end zone ten plus times again this year, you will be relying on him to stay healthy. When in the lineup, Barkley is a primary feature in the Giants offense and will be relied upon in goal line situations.
Giants fans saw their quarterback get a lot of money this off-season. Their running back seems to be next in line.
Daniel Jones Prop Betting
Daniel Jones has a couple player props listed for longer odds. Last year, Jones took strides forward and helped the Giants make the playoffs for the first time in six years. The Duke product can beat you with his arm and his legs, which is something he proved in the Wild Card game this past January in Minnesota.
Daniel Jones Player Props
Jones has never had a season of 10+ rushing touchdowns or 30+ passing touchdowns. His most rushing touchdowns came last year when he had seven. Other than that, he’s never had more than two in a season.
His most passing touchdowns came in his rookie year, when he had 24. Jones’ second most came last season with 15. The Giants Quarterback played in 16 games last year, which was the most games he’s ever played in a season.
Each of these prop bets will be tough for Jones to hit. He’s much more likely to achieve 10+ rushing touchdowns, but even that seems far fetched.
Giants Team Betting
The Giants also have a number of team specific bets listed on FanDuel. For example, you can take the Giants to score one or more touchdowns in every regular season game for +250 odds. Last year, the Giants were able to achieve this feat and have done so in each of their past 20 games, including the postseason.
If you think the Giants will go one step further than last year, you can take them to reach the NFC Championship game for +1000 odds. It also happens to be the same odds FanDuel is giving them to beat the Philadelphia Eagles at home and on the road in the regular season.
