After starting the season with an impressive 6-1 record, the Giants have gone 1-3-1 in their last five contests, including a three-game winless streak.
Head coach Brian Daboll still believes his team has what it takes to turn the corner, though, and the concept of universal accountability was obvious in his early-week statement to the media.
“It's a week-to-week league, so have we got the results we wanted? Absolutely not. Have we prepared, worked and done the right things to give ourselves a chance? We have,” he said after their Week 13 tie against the Commanders, via Giants.com. “We just haven't finished, we haven't done enough to win those games. I was proud of the team yesterday for the way they competed, losing two in a row and you're down 10-0 right away. So, the focus for us will always be on us and improving the things we need to improve from each individual, starting with me, all the way down to the team. That's, to me, the only way you know how to coach and work in this business."
With a matchup against the Eagles (11-1) looming, New York will have to be at their very best to take down their rivals, just like they have been against seemingly-superior opponents all season long. They’ve literally never lost in this exact situation.
The Giants have gone 4-0 SU (192.5% ROI) as an underdog of +140 to +325 this year. New York’s moneyline is right in that range.
If you’re an ATS bettor, it’s also worth noting that the Giants have gone 7-1 ATS as an underdog this year, which highlights how they’ve consistently beaten the books and outplayed their expectations.
