There's Value In The New York Giants' Season Win Total

BetQL takes a look at the New York Giants' win totals for the 2022 season

To say it was a bad year for the New York Giants last season would be an understatement. They were atrocious, going 4-13 in an underwhelming campaign. It has been a real struggle for the Giants to win just about anything at all in recent years, as the team has missed the postseason dating back to a 2016 Wild-Card loss to the Green Bay Packers in the now infamous "boat pic" season. They have a total of 22 wins since that season, one of two teams that have below 25 wins since that time. The other team? The New York Jets. However, there is reason to believe they will make an improvement in 2022 after an off-season that involved hiring a new coach and selecting some talented draft picks.

The Giants’ win total is over/under 7 or 7.5 for the 2022 season, depending on what sportsbook you use. The Giants’ odds to make the playoffs currently range anywhere between +200 to +260 for yes and -250 to -335 for no.

In my opinion, the Giants have a really good shot to get to eight wins this season. This is not a very high total at all, and they could win this bet and still have a losing season at 8-9. It will be hard for them to be as bad as they were last season with the improvements they have made in the offseason, and I think those improvements are worth four extra wins. The Giants have a new GM in Joe Schoen, and new head coach in Brian Daboll. Both of these guys come from building a successful foundation in Buffalo with the Bills organization, and they will look to do the same with New York. I believe Daboll will get the best out of QB Daniel Jones, whatever that may be.

We can make arguments about draft selections all we want, but the fact remains that Schoen took two of the best talents in this draft with his first-round selections. He was able to get both DE Kayvon Thibodeaux and OL Evan Neal, who many analysts had as possible No. 1 pick selections at one point in time. There is no denying their talent, and really, the Giants needed to get better everywhere. The rest of the draft was spent on getting quality depth pieces and filling in gaps on the roster with high-upside guys.

Lastly, New York's strength of schedule this season is laughably easy compared to most other teams, with the fourth easiest in the NFL. In fact, the entirety of the NFC East has an easy schedule relative to how teams performed last season. I don't think it's too much to ask for them to get to eight wins.
