2010 NFL Predictions New York Giants NFL odds: Can the NY Giants Regain Their Swagger? Picked for the 2010 NFL predictions season with 15-2 NFL odds to represent the NFC Conference in the Super Bowl, the New York Giants are predicted by Vegas odds makers to be a factor in the playoff race, but they must first find bounce back from a late season swoon. In 2009, the Giants were sitting at 7-7 and in the mix for a Wild Card spot in the NFC Playoff race when they suffered two season-ending NFL predictions defeats to Carolina and Minnesota by a combined score of 85-16. Bye-bye playoffs.
As a result of those NFL predictions loses, the Giants shuffled some of their offense and defensive coaches and look forward to a renewed commitment in 2010 from many of the same players who tanked at the end of 2009 NFL betting season.
Eli Manning is back at the helm again after a solid season in 2009 in which he threw for over 4,000 yards and 27 touchdowns. His favorite receiver is now Steve Smith, who caught more than 100 balls last NFL picks season. Mario Manningham and Hakeem Nicks make big plays on the outside. The running game, long the Giants’ bread and butter, suffered in 2009. Ahmad Bradshaw, with a 4.8 average, became a dangerous weapon but Brandon Jacobs was a flop. Much of Jacobs’ problems came from an offensive line that failed to open any holes, and the Giants need that group to improve.
The defense imploded in the 2009 NFL schedule and many of the same players will be back including DL Justin Tuck, DE Mathias Kiwanuka, and CB Terrell Thomas. They will need more production from their defensive line and linebackers.
With their potent passing attack, the Giants will find themselves in a lot of 2010 NFL predictions as the favorites, but it is up to the defense and running game to seal the deal. Can those units make turnarounds? The answers will go a long way with the Vegas odds makers and in determining how the team responds in 2010.
