New York Giants Team History
The New York Giants organization played its first game in 1925 along with four other teams that joined the league the same year. The Giants are the only ones of the group that are still playing today.
Since they were founded nearly a century ago, the Giants have won four Super Bowls, 11 conference championships, 22 divisional titles and made 32 playoff appearances.
In recent years, the Giants biggest claim to fame is that they’re the only franchise to defeat Tom Brady and the Patriots in the Super Bowl, doing it in 2007 and 2011. They made the playoffs in four consecutive years from 2005-2008, but have only qualified for the postseason twice since then. The most recognizable names in franchise history include Lawrence Taylor, Phil Simms, Michael Strahan, and Eli Manning.

Tips for Betting on the New York Giants
When you start the year 1-7, talk quickly turns to who needs to be fired, who needs to be traded and who needs to be drafted. For the Giants, controversy, questions, and poor play dogged them all season as they finished in fourth place in the NFC East.
Those poor results led to major changes in the offseason which included trading star wideout Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns and drafting QB Daniel Jones with the sixth overall pick in the draft.
It’s unclear at this point whether or not Jones will start or even see meaningful game-time this season, but it is clear that Eli Manning’s days are numbered as the Giants’ franchise QB.
One of the few bright spots on the Giants roster is RB Saquon Barkley, who had a monster rookie season and will undoubtedly be the focal point of what looks to be an otherwise pedestrian Giants offense. Aside from Jones, the Giants had two other first-round selections, which they used on DT Dexter Lawrence and CB Deandre Baker.
The Giants finished in the top half of the league in both overs and point-spread cover percentage in 2018. Buoyed by strong play from both Manning and Barkley, the Giants closed out the year successfully hitting the over in four of their last five games.
Although the Giants finished at 5-11, they did manage to go .500 after their week nine bye. Their offense and defense were both below average last season, and with the departures of FS Landon Collins and WR Odell Beckham Jr., both units look to be significantly worse this season.
Here are a few important betting numbers to keep in mind before you make any wagers on the Giants this year:
- The Giants were above average vs. the spread last season, going 8-7-1, finishing the year with a 53.3 cover percentage.
- The Giants were a top ten over team last season on point totals, ending the year with a 9-7-0 point total record.
- Despite being a perennial primetime draw, the Giants only have three-night games scheduled in 2019, none of which are on Sunday night.
