The rosters are set and every team in the NFL is now eagerly awaiting the start of the regular season, which is a little over a week away. Every fan now has some idea of what to expect from their team in 2022. While some are excited about the start of the season, others are preparing for what could be a miserable few months. Fans of the New York Giants have suffered through some lean seasons of late, but is there reason to be optimistic in 2022? The Giants closed out last season losing their final 6 games on the way to a miserable 4-13 season. There is some reason for optimism heading into the new season, with the bookies setting the win total for the Giants at 7 ½. The question now is whether they can in fact improve, let’s take a look at what lies ahead for them so you can plan your bets against their NFL Odds.
What are the NFL Odds? Will the New York Yankees Record Improve in 2022?
Giants Win Total and 2022 Schedule
As we already mentioned, the Giants win total for the 2022 season is set at 7 ½, and with just 4 wins in 2021, the only way seems to be up. The question now is where they might be able to get those wins this season, with their divisional games perhaps the most likely.
The Giants have a tough start to the season against the Tennessee Titans on the road, but they follow that up with a home game against Carolina, which certainly looks like an opportunity for a win. The Dallas Cowboys at home is another tough one, with September likely to be a 1-2 month.
October brings what I would suggest are 3 winnable games for the Giants. They will start out at home to the Bears, after which it’s the Packers and Ravens, both of which can be penciled in as a loss. They close out the month with a pair of road games against Jacksonville and Seattle, which are definitely both of the winnable variety. By this stage of the season, I like the Giants to have already matched their win total from 2021.
They start November with home games against Houston and Detroit, both of which are winnable games. The Cowboys away is tough, but Washington at home is a win for the taking. The home stretch of the season is where things get a little tougher. The Giants will take on Philly home and away, with a split looking possible, while games versus the Vikings and Colts are definitely of the tougher variety. They will have a road trip to Washington wedged into the final few weeks, too.
One of the keys for the Giants is keeping Saquon Barkley healthy, while also hoping that Daniel Jones takes a step forward as the starting QB.
Will the Giants Improve?
If they can keep their key players healthy, there is no reason why the New York Giants can’t improve on what they delivered last season. Yes, it’s a low bar, but it’s also tough to climb out of a hole that been dug over the period of a few seasons. While certainly not quite ready to challenge for the division or a Wild Card spot, I think that Giants fans will have a much better season than what they have witnessed of late.
