Betting NY Giants
The Giants are 5.5-point road dogs per the best online sportsbooks. The 2022 season is the New York Giants’ 98th in the NFL, and first under the head coach and general manager duo of Brian Daboll and Joe Schoen. They will try to improve on their 4–13 record from last season, and make the postseason for the first time since 2016, and win the NFC East division title for the first time since 2011.
The Giants did not improve on their 6–10 record from the previous season last year. They missed the playoffs for the fifth straight year following a Week 16 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. After the season, GM Dave Gettleman retired and head coach Joe Judge was fired.
Betting Tennessee Titans
The Titans are home faves according to the best gambling sites. The 2022 season will be the Tennessee Titans’ 53rd in the NFL, 63rd overall, 26th in the state of Tennessee and fifth under head coach Mike Vrabel.
After a 34–3 win against the Miami Dolphins in Week 17 last season, the Titans secured the AFC South divission title for the second straight season. That was the first time since 1960–1962 that the team won their division in consecutive seasons.
The Titans finished with a 12–5 record, improving on their 11–5 record from the previous season and clinching the AFC’s top seed in the postseason for the first time since 2008. However, their season came to an end with a 19–16 loss to eventual AFC champions Cincinnati Bengals, their third consecutive playoff in as many seasons.
After they spent the last few weeks trimming their roster down from the original 90 players they started training camp with, the Tennessee Titans have officially pared their roster down to 53 players.
In the process, the team waived 29 players in the past few days to comply with yesterday’s NFL-mandated deadline. Most of the transactions were rather predictable, but there were some surprises as well.
It is worth noting that there is a reason this is called the initial 53-man roster. The Titans will make moves ahead of the season. The first of those moves could involve wide receiver Racey McMath, reportedly expected to be put on injured reserve with an injured hip.
Ahead of yesterday’s deadline, it was quite foreseeable that the Titans had five wide receivers that were a shoo in for roster spots. The surprise came when those were the only five receivers that made the initial 53-man roster.
Titans Team Stats
At the end of the day, Tennessee let go Dez Fitzpatrick, Mason Kinsey, Reggie Roberson, and Cody Hollister. However, one would have to imagine that some of those receivers will end up back on a practice squad deal in the near future. Actually, it’s not that much of a surprise that none of them made the roster; it’s more disappointing that nobody stepped up and seized the spot that was there for the taking.
Another shocking twist is the fact that McMath seems to be destined to start the season on the injured reserve list as a result a recent hip injury, meaning that he will miss at least the first four games of the season.
The LSU product had apparently been on track for a greater role on the offense because of his special mix of size and speed. Sadly, that plan appears to have put in the backburner before it ever got a change to get going.
More importantly, the Titans are projected to have just four healthy wide receivers by Week 1. In truth, it’s very unlikely that the receiver depth will stay that thin when the Titans open their 2022 season against the New York Giants on September 11th.
There’s a good chance that the team is possibly looking someone elsewhere, either a waiver claim, a free-agent, or a trade. This is one position group you have to keep your eye on going forward since the group’s configuration does not seem to be finished just yet.
The most surprising name is undrafted rookie from Sacred Heart, Julius Chestnut. He kept having solid performances throughout camp as well as the preseason. Therefore his addition to the team more than just a fluke. What’s surprising is that Tennessee decided to have a total of five running backs.
