New York now has two teams in the NFL’s bottom eight (sort of) and players who believe in both now have the option to bet on the New York Giants and Buffalo Bills clashing in the Super Bowl, unlikely as that is may also appear.
But hey, hitting the unlikely is how many players make their fortunes.
With the Giants beating the Minnesota Vikings on the road and the Bills leading 17-0 but holding on to defeating the Miami Dolphins, there are a number of in-game scenarios as we delve into week 2 move of the NFL postseason.
Is a Giants-Bills Super Bowl likely? No way. is it a possibility In any case. And the price of that possibility makes it particularly enticing, no matter how unlikely this appears on January 17, 2023.
Buffalo beat Miami 34-31 before the Giants defeated the Minnesota Vikings 31-24 on the road. The Giants next travel to Philadelphia for a Saturday night game against the Eagles, while the Bills take on the Cincinnati Bengals at home on Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m.
The Giants are 7 1/2 point underdogs against a team that has defeated them twice. The Bills are 5-point favorites against the team they faced Monday night soccer a few weeks ago before the Demar Hamlin incident happened. This time the game takes place in western New York instead of southern Ohio.

What are the chances of that happening?
New York’s nine licensed sportsbooks offer a variety of bets, and BetMGM, Caesars and Points Bet have lineups for accurate Super Bowl matches. Bills Giants is +3500 at BetMGM. At Caesars, Buffalo’s win over New York is +6000 and New York’s win over Buffalo is +8000. And for that, we’re channeling old memories from Scott Norwood.

And hey, things get better for those willing to embrace that possibility, no matter how far-fetched. Visit PointsBet for the exact SuperBowl result. Bills defeating Giants are +5000 and Giants defeating Bills are +15000. Again, we advise you to look around.
You can dismiss this with a wave of your hand. But let us remind you that the Baltimore Colts did the same thing in 1969 when they faced Joe Namath and the New York Jets, and one didn’t go exactly as the odds makers predicted.

KC, Buffalo and San Fran preferred
In the Super Bowl championship markets, the Chiefs are the +300 favorites, the Bills are +350, and the 49ers and their 11-game winning streak are +450, followed by Philly at +500. The Giants now have +2500 on most books to win the Super Bowl, with only Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars having higher odds (+3500).
But how many people had the Phillies won the World Series last fall after finishing 14 games behind the Atlanta Braves in the AL East?
The postseason isn’t the regular season, folks, and Tom Brady’s 4,694 regular-season passing yards didn’t mean much last night against the Dallas Cowboys, did it?
Tom Brady is the biggest loser of 2022. He lost his wife because he’s married to the game. Lost millions, maybe billions in the FTX scheme. Takes his first loss against the Cowboys in what may be his last game ever. 8-9 record. Worst season of career. Go when you’re up. #cowboys #DemBoyz

The fact is, Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley were exceptional in Sunday’s away win over the Minnesota Vikings, and the Bills held on after squandering a 17-0 lead and beating the Miami Dolphins. The Giants will now travel to Philadelphia, where they’re a huge underdog against the team that finished with the best record in the NFL, while the Bills will take on the Cincinnati in Buffalo with Damar Hamlin likely in the house.
By this time next week we’re on the bottom four teams in the NFL and the odds we’re seeing today won’t be available then. So if your strategy is to strike while the iron is hot and play by gut instinct, there’s no better time than now. Road teams won two of six games over the wild card weekend, and that would have been three if the Jaguars hadn’t done against the Chargers and come back from a 27-0 deficit.
This Jacksonville game should prove to everyone that pretty much anything is possible in the NFL playoffs, so roll with it if you will.
The Giants played all of their backups the last time they played the Eagles in the regular-season finals, and the Eagles played against their regulars to secure the No. 1 seed. Should have been a blowout but Philly won 22-16 and had to recover an onsides kick with 1:43 left to win it. So they ended 14-3, but they are now 0-0 while New York is 1-0. And coach Brian Daboll reaches into his bag of tricks again.

Will Jalen Hurts’ playoff inexperience be a factor?
Hard to say. Jones was in the same position on Sunday and it didn’t matter much. Hurts threw for 229 yards but was sacked once and threw an interception against the Giants’ third-stringers two weeks ago. He was better in the teams’ first meeting, with two TD passes in the first half from no-huddle formations and a rushing TD early in the third. It was all about helping the Eagles take a 34-14 lead late in the first quarter.
Hurts is no Kirk Cousins, and the best midweek bet is that the Giants will review a movie about how the Eagles’ no-huddle offense gave them seizures. Daboll will have them prepared, that’s for sure.
Did Tom Brady’s experience also wipe out Dak Prescott’s five TD passes last night? no Did Trevor Lawrence quit when his Jaguars lost 27-0 to the Los Angeles Chargers? no
Repeat after me, “The regular season doesn’t matter anymore… The regular season doesn’t matter anymore.”
This is the best mental exercise for Giants fans in the shortened work week. One team will win and one team will lose on Saturday night, and the Giants aren’t the biggest underdog. That title goes to the Jags, who get 8 1/2 from Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. The Bengals and Rams were both seeded at No. 4 when they met in the Super Bowl last season. The AFC’s No. 1-seeded Titans lost in a wildcard game a year ago, and the NFC’s No. 1-seeded Green Bay Packers went 1-0 down in the 2022 postseason, losing 13-10 to San Francisco.
Unlikely things happen, and every New York Giants fan needs to remember it by Saturday. If you want them to draw a 2011 and win it all, the best Super Bowl championship odds at New York’s nine licensed sportsbooks at WynnBet and Caesars are: +3000. The worst is at BetRivers: +2000.
Won, NOT DONE! 🥳
