I am continuing my trip through the NFC East with a closer look at each team's projected win total for the 2015 NFL regular season along with their odds to go "over" or stay "under" the total. Next up on the list is the New York Giants with a projected win total of 8.5 and a -115 betting moneyline for both the over and the under.
I was bullish on the Giants last season with a predicted record of 9-7, but a mid-season slump in which they lost seven-straight games resulted in just six wins against 10 losses. The year before, New York shook-off a 0-6 start to finish 7-9. Despite these two down years, as long as Tom Coughlin is still at the helm as head coach and Eli Manning is under center at quarterback, I still see New York as a legitimate contender in the NFC East title race. Winning two Super Bowls in five seasons is still a pretty impressive stat to have on either one of these resumes.
Turning to this season's outlook, the following is a link to my complete win total preview and prediction for New York in an article that was previously posted on Doc's Sports.
