Preseason Week 4: Giants at Patriots Odds

,

New York Giants Odds

Rookie wunderkind Daniel Jones is the starting quarterback for the Giants as veteran Eli Manning draws clipboard duty in what could be a sign of things to come based on the first-round pick’s play this preseason. Most times, Bill Belichick defenses are unkind to newbies, but the Patriots play a vanilla-basic scheme in this one, bringing opportunities in spades for Jones to roll momentum into the regular season and fan the flame for him to overtake Manning sooner rather than later.

 

New England Patriots Odds

The do-you-job mantra espoused by Belichick is always frontburner in New England, even in an exhibition that is mostly meaningless. The Patriots have their own surprising rookie at quarterback in Auburn product Jarrett Stidham, a 23-year-old who is grading out on par with or better than the high-priced picks in this freshman class.
