Giants Stock Falls

When the New York Giants went on a four game losing streak in November and December, including a loss to the Eagles (lead by Vince Young), the Giants stock plumetted. New York's odds to win the Super Bowl went from 20:1 to 80:1.

There was little hope the Giants would even make the playoffs after there 38-35 loss to the Packers on December 4th. With 4 weeks left in the regular season, New York was 6-6 and had to play Dallas twice and the New York Jets in their final 4 regular season games.

Giants Faithful Capitalize

The Giants ended up finishing the season 3-1 beating Dallas twice and the Jets, and winning the NFC East. The Giants fan base is strong and a few Giants' faithful weren't afraid to put action on their team even when it seemed they had little to no chance of making a run at a Super Bowl.

Giants The Pick To Cover

Fast forward to today, and the Giants have won 5 straight, including two wins on the road at Green Bay and San Francisco. New York is playing their best football of the year and a rematch of Super Bowl 42 has Las Vegas oddmakers hoping the game won't end in the same result.

As you recall, the Giants ended the Patriots run at a perfect season in Super Bowl 42, winning 17-14. The Giants are 3-point underdogs at the moment and most of the "smart bettor's" action is on New York.

Good luck.... Vegas.
