On Sunday afternoon, at TIAA Bank Field, the New York Giants will travel to face the Jacksonville Jaguars in an NFL game. With that considered, it is a good time to look at our NFL oddsseries, which is presented below and includes a prediction and choice for the Giants against the Jaguars.
With a record of 5-1 this season, including three straight victories, New York has astounded the NFL community. The team’s four victories from the previous season have already been surpassed by new head coach Brian Daboll, who has been a godsend. For the first time in a long time, optimism is in high supply at MetLife.
Jacksonville has a new head coach as well, Doug Pederson, who has led the team to a 2-4 record. Pederson is very different from former head coach Urban Meyer and has a Super Bowl pedigree. This squad has recently experienced a severe downturn, but it appears that they are beginning to recover.
