“Guys are giving up on the season…Guys just don’t care anymore,” said an anonymous Giants player. That’s a real quote reported by ESPN’s Josina Anderson. The crazy part, the statement came before Big Blue lost to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.
L.A. drilled the G-Men 51-17 at MetLife Stadium, it was one of the worst home losses in franchise history. New York is now 0-4 in front of the hometown crowd in 2017. With the season spiraling out of control, bookmakers are offering a prop bet on the Giants futility.
Will the Giants finish the season 0-8 at home in 2017? (Bovada)
- Yes +300
- No -500
New York has won at least one game at home every year since 1993. Keeping the streak alive won’t be easy. Eli Manning will host the Chiefs (6-3), Cowboys (5-3) and Eagles (8-1) before closing the season against the Redskins (4-4).
The Giants aren’t favored in any remaining home game according to our simulations. The Week 17 matchup against Washington is New York’s best chance to win (44.8%).
There is a 16.9% chance Ben McAdoo’s team goes 0-8 at home. At +300 odds, the implied probability of “Yes” is 25.0%. As much fun as it would be to cheer for failure, there is no value in wagering on complete ineptness.
Remember, the Giants have a habit of winning games they shouldn’t.
We give New York an 83.1% chance of winning at least one game at home. Right in line with the implied probability of “No” -500.
