The New York Giants currently have their worst win total mark of the season after their 1-4 start.
At PointsBet, that total is now at 4.5, with the over netting you -120 odds and the under priced at even money.
The Giants had entered the season with a projected win total of seven.
New York has been terrible on both offense and defense, but injuries have contributed to that. While quarterback Daniel Jones has had a career year, the position players have missed a substantial amount of time.
In fact, both Jones and running back Saquon Barkley were injured and did not return to their most recent, 44-20, loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
Jones, Barkley, Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepard and Kadarius Toney — the team’s five best offensive weapons — have suited up for just 17 total snaps together this season.
Meanwhile, the team’s DVOA ranking thus far this season puts them ninth from bottom, below even shaky defenses like those in Kansas City and Green Bay.
Worse yet, the team now has the same win total as their crosstown rival New York Jets. The Jets had a win total of 4.5 as of Wednesday, with even money odds for the over and -120 odds on the under.
The team’s only win came in overtime against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4. The Giants also recorded losses against a bad Atlanta Falcons team, the Denver Broncos and the Washington Football Team.
New York is a heavy home underdog for its tilt against the Los Angeles Rams this weekend. The Giants are 9.5-point dogs with a +375 moneyline against the high-flying Rams offense that’s sure to shred through New York’s secondary.
