Hopes were high for the New York Giants heading into the 2023 NFL season, but a 40-0 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1 was a bad sign of what was to come. They won just six games all season to finish with a 6-11 record.

Now, Giants' fans are left wondering if 2023 was an anomaly of a season or if they should expect more of the same in the 2024 campaign. Unfortunately, if the odds are any indication, it's going to be another rough season upcoming.

Oddsmakers have released win projections for all 32 teams. Let's take a look to see where they have the Giants finishing in 2024.

2024 Giants win total

FanDuel Sportsbook has the Giants' win total for the 2024 season set at 6.5. To add salt to the wound, the UNDER 6.5 wins is the favored side at -142 odds. That means there's an implied probability of 58.68% that New York will have a record of 6-11 or worse next season.

That's bad news for Giants fans who have had a rough few months. Not only did they have a disappointing 2023 season, but it was followed up by losing Saquon Barkley to the Eagles at the start of the NFL offseason.

The good news is the Giants have the No. 6 overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft and could be looking to draft a quarterback. The Daniel Jones experiment hasn't worked for New York and if the Giants do draft a quarterback, they're also drafting the hope that comes along with a rookie at that position.

The Giants' are also hurt by having the second-toughest schedule in the NFC in 2024 based on the win percentage of 2023. Their opponents had a combined win percentage of .516 last season, with only the Packers (.526) having a tougher slate of opponents to deal with.
