2018 New York Giants NFL Betting Odds and Schedule
The New York Giants have a Shurmur of the Heart. Sadly, betting sites for NFL are probably not big fans of Louis Malle. The Giants hired Pat Shurmur in January to replace interim head coach Steve ‘Spanish Esteban’ Spagnuolo. Esteban, in turn, had been temporarily appointed to replace Ben McAdoo in 2017. The Giants future-endeavored McAdoo after going 2-10. Spagnuolo went 1-3 in the four remaining games. McAdoo will be remembered mostly for the dubious honor of breaking Eli Manning starting streak. Shurmur, on the other hand, is best known for, I guess, being the new New York Giants head coach. In fact, NFL.com analyst Elliot Harrison ranked 27th out 32 head coaches. He was ahead of only Dirk Koetter, Mike Vrabel, Vance Joseph, Steve Wilks, and Hue Jackson. And speaking of Hue, at least Shurmur isn’t either the worst coach the Browns have ever had.

Pro Football Focus is as unimpressed with the Giants O-line as Harrison is with Shurmur. They ranked it 25th out of 32. The silver lining is that bad as it is, it should in theory be better than last season. PFF highlighted Nate Solder and Will Hernandez, while adding that neither are “miracle workers.” Solder in particular, “gave up 51 pressures a season ago,” compared Ereck Flowers’s average of 58.
On the other side of the ball, the offense got a much needed boost in the form of Saquon Barkley. The first-rounder will certainly be a ROTY candidate at betting sites for NFL.
