New York Giants Week 4 Odds and Betting Picks


The New York Giants may not be considered a true contender for Super Bowl 56 but by playing in the NFC East, anything is possible once you get into the playoffs (big if). The G-Men are still hoping to make an impact in 2021 and with Daniel Jones leading the offense again this season, opinions are divided as to whether he can be the guy to lead New York back to prosperity. 

The Giants were edged by the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3 to drop to 0-3 in the standings and now have to travel to face the New Orleans Saints as huge underdogs at Caesars Superdome.

Super Bowl Odds Update – New York Giants

The New York Giants haven’t had a great start to the 2021 season after dropping the first two games to the Denver Broncos, Washington Football Team and Atlanta Falcons. They’ve been near the bottom of the standings for the last few seasons and have had a top 10 pick in the NFL Draft in five of the last six seasons. The accumulation of talent hasn’t seemed to materialize the team into a contender as sportsbooks like BetMGM have the Giants Super Bowl odds at +30000 healing into Week 4, which is the fifth-worst odds amongst all 32 NFL teams. 

  • Week 4: +30000
  • Week 3: +12500
  • Week 2: +10000
  • Week 1: +8000
  • Preseason: +8000

Giants Futures Odds

The main futures markets to pay attention to for the New York Giants are odds to win the NFC East and NFC conference odds.

For the NFC East, they’re listed at +1400 to win the division and trail the Dallas Cowboys (-200), Washington Football Team (+400)  Philadelphia Eagles (+500) in odds to win the divisional crown at BetMGM. Although the Giants finished 6-10 last season, they had a surprising 4-2 record within the division and won four of their last six games to finish the 2020 season. 

As for NFC Conference odds, the Giants are far down the list to get back to the Super Bowl and sit at +15000 odds at BetMGM to pull it off. That’s the second-worst odds in the conference and seems highly unlikely given the uphill battle just to make the playoffs after starting the season 0-3 in the standings.

Saquon Barkley NFL Comeback Player of the Year Odds

Although he still looks to be regaining form following his return from injury, Saquon Barkley of the New York Giants should still be considered a decent great candidate to win NFL Comeback Player of the Year. His odds are currently +2200 at BetMGM to rise from the ashes like a phoenix and live up to the hype he had coming out of Penn State. Unlike the favorite Dak Prescott, there’s less pressure for Saquon to succeed playing with a team like the Giants that is expected to finish near the bottom of the standings. 

If Saquon puts up numbers similar to his rookie season and plays at least 15 games, he could have a decent chance to win this award over the likes of Prescott, Joe Burrow or Jameis Winston. At +2200 odds at BetMGM, it may be worth a bet at this stage given the Giants have seemed to not limit his reps so far season.

New York Giants Betting Trends

The Giants are coming off a season where even though they finished 6-11 in the standings, they were a reliable spread most weeks. They finished 9-7 against the spread in 2020 and an impressive 6-2 ATS in road games.

For 2021, the Giants are 1-2 ATS and game totals have gone under in two of their three games. The Giants failed to win or cover the spread as 2.5-point home underdogs in Week 3 vs the Falcons.

In 2020, totals bettors had a huge edge by taking unders in Giants games and total went under in 12 of their 16 games last season. Oddsmakers didn’t think there would be much offensive fireworks in New York games as only one game saw a closing total over 50 points. After finishing with the 31st-ranked scoring offense last year, bettors should expect a lot more games in 2021 with totals in the 42-45 points range.

Here are the updated trends from the 2020 season:

  • 9-7 ATS
  • 3-12-1 O/U record on Totals
