The New York Giants continue to surprise everybody in 2022 and they will continue their playoff push this weekend with a tough trip to Philadelphia to face the Eagles.
The G Men shocked the world by making the postseason and it kicked off the big dance by upsetting the Vikings in Minnesota. Now a bigger test at the Linc in the Divisional Playoff round awaits on Saturday night.
Let’s see what the online sportsbooks say about the Giants’ hopes of success in 2022-23.
Giants vs Eagles Predictions & Best Bets
Big Blue is a 7.5-point underdog for that trip to Philly (8.15pm ET Saturday, FOX), and we have picks:
Daniel Jones Anytime Touchdown (+250, bet365)
Jones produced the best performance of his pro career in that playoff win at Minnesota last week, and the G Men will need to rinse and repeat if they are to upset the Eagles in their own backyard.
Daniel was productive on the ground again as well as through the air in Minneapolis, and he already has 7 rushing scores to date in the 2022 season. The odds look favorable for him to find the endzone again on Saturday night – something he did in the first meeting with Philly at MetLife.
New York Giants Super Bowl Odds
Online bookmakers don’t expect much from the G Men in 2022 after a miserable 4-13 season in 2021, but they are now +3000 to win it all.

New York is a 7.5-point underdog for the Divisional Playoff trip to Philadelphia to face the Eagles (8.15pm ET Saturday, FOX).
We love the Daboll hire. He has coached a team with minimal talent to overperform every week so yes, they can hang with anybody.
Like we said, Big Blue is currently +3000 to win Super Bowl LVII – that means if you bet $100 and they do lift the Lombardi next month, you’d collect a cool $3,000. If you want the odds in fractions – the Giants are 30-1.
If the Giants stun Philly and Dallas wins in San Francisco on Sunday, then the two teams will meet in the NFC title game at AT&T Stadium on Sunday January 29. Watch this space….
