Giants playoff odds surge following Week 15 win over Commanders
By Ben Heisler
The New York Giants picked a hell of a time to snap an 11-game losing streak in prime-time.
Via ESPN Stats and Info, the G-Men won their first game under the lights since Week 10 of the 2018 season, taking down the Washington Commanders on Sunday Night Football 20-12, winning outright as a 4-point underdog.
Daniel Jones stepped up big in his first prime time victory of his career, perhaps in the most meaningful game since being drafted in the first round.
New York is now 8-5-1 on the season in Brian Daboll’s first season, and took a monster step towards a postseason spot, moving from 52 to 87% in FiveThirtyEight’s latest playoff projections.
So how does Vegas see the Giants’ chances the rest of the way?
