2022 New York Giants Team Futures Odds, Picks, and Preview: Super Bowl, Win Total, and Playoff Predictions
New head coach Brian Daboll brings a complete change in philosophy to a New York Giants team that has failed to crest six wins in any of the past five seasons. With uncertainty surrounding fourth-year quarterback Daniel Jones, how does Big Blue project for the upcoming season? Check out the Giants' futures odds, picks, and preview for the upcoming season.
Daboll's hiring gives confidence to a Giants fan base desperate for NFL relevancy. New York has managed just one winning season since 2013 and has no playoff wins since its Super Bowl win in 2011.
With uncertainty comes opportunity, but where is the best wagering value in the upcoming 2022 season?
Here’s our 2022 NFL season preview for the New York Giants, with a look at the team’s futures markets and our top picks (odds via DraftKings Sportsbook, BetMGM, and FanDuel Sportsbook).
Giants' 2022 Futures Odds
Giants 2022 Picks
To win NFC East (+800 via DraftKings)Over 7.5 Wins (+145 via FanDuel)Giants to miss playoffs (-250 via BetMGM)Saquon Barkley Over 850.5 Rushing Yards (-112 via FanDuel)
To Win NFC East (+800)
This number is simply too high for the amount of uncertainty in the NFC East. All four teams carry plus-money odds to win the division, further illustrating the randomness.
The key to this pick is the upside of the Giants' offense. A healthy Saquon Barkley behind a much-improved offensive line is a threat for a repeat of his 2000-yard rookie season. Second-round rookie wideout Wan’Dale Robinson gives quarterback Daniel Jones three explosive receivers.
The NFL’s easiest schedule - according to projected Vegas win totals - makes this bet worth the risk.

Over 7.5 Wins (+145)
DraftKings has New York Over 7 at +105, but I’ll grab the extra bonus for the eighth win in 2022. The Giants' first eight games include extremely winnable contests against Carolina, Chicago, Jacksonville, and Seattle. Following their Week 9 bye, they host Houston and Detroit.
New York has defeated Washington in five of the last seven meetings, with one of the defeats being a one-point road loss last season. The Giants have also earned a split with the Eagles in each of the past two seasons.
Though this feels like a seven-win team, I’m grabbing the Over 7.5 wins at a tasty +145 value.
To Miss Playoffs (-250)
Despite the favorable +225 odds, I can’t bet this Giants team to make the playoffs. Even a 9-8 season wouldn’t guarantee a playoff berth, as New Orleans, Miami, and Indianapolis all missed the playoffs with that exact record in 2021.
An eight-win season would be a huge success in Daboll’s first year, and nine wins are likely the ceiling for this Giants team.
Regardless, I’m projecting New York to miss the playoffs even at the high -250 juice.
Saquon Barkley Over 850.5 Rushing Yards (-112)
Whether it's in fantasy football or betting, it’s critical to have an official stance on Barkley. Is he an injury-prone running back who will never reach his potential? Or is this uber-talented rusher finally healthy and ready to regain his magical rookie season form?
Last season, Daboll’s Buffalo offense averaged the 13th-most rushing attempts per game with much less talented backs (Devin Singletary, Matt Breida, and Zack Moss) than Barkley.
Assuming Barkley misses two games, he needs only 56.7 rushing yards per game to beat this prop.
