With the 2022 NFL season nearly underway for the Giants, what are some betting lines for you to consider? We’re taking a look, this time with Daniel Jones stat lines.
Daniel Jones is the starting quarterback for the New York Giants in a make-it-or-break-it season. He has been under the microscope a lot by the fanbase over the past few years. Some fans already want to move on from him and some fans want to take the wait-and-see approach.
As of right now, head coach Brian Daboll and general manager Joe Schoen don’t seem to be committed to him long-term. The new offensive coordinator this season will be Mike Kafka. Daniel Jones betting props are up on the FanDuel Sportsbook website though. Here are the highlights:
Giants Betting Lines For Daniel Jones In The 2022 NFL Season
Passing Yards: Over 3450.5 yards (-112), Under 3450.5 yards (-112)
The odds for Daniel Jones to go over/under 3,450.5 passing yards this season appears to be the same. Vegas is telling you it can go either way with him. Last season, he only threw for 2,428 passing yards. Daniel Jones has yet to eclipse this mark once in his NFL career.
It appears as if the writing is already on the wall for him. In 2020, he threw for 2,943 yards and in 2019, he threw for 3,027 yards. His rookie year was the only time Daniel Jones threw for over 3,000 yards passing and that was with an offensive-minded head coach in Pat Shurmur at the time.
For the last two seasons, Daniel Jones had Joe Judge as head coach with Jason Garrett and Freddie Kitchens as his offensive coordinators. Jones is also prone to getting hurt. What is also unclear is who the starting wide receivers will be on the Giants’ roster. It has been one of the most injured groups on the roster.
Kenny Golladay might be getting cut. KaDarius Toney and Wan’Dale Robinson might be the top two wide receivers on the depth chart. Long-time Giants wideout, Sterling Shepard, might be the third wide receiver for the offense. If that’s the case, Daniel Bellinger will be the starting tight end and Saquon Barkley will be the starting running back.
At the end of the day, Daniel Jones might look better, but the wide receiver room is so inconsistent that he won’t eclipse this mark.
The pick: Under 3,450.5 yards passing (-112)
Daniel Jones Passing Touchdowns: Over 21.5 touchdowns (-112)/Under 21.5 touchdowns (-112)
The mark of 21.5 touchdowns seems like a very reasonable number to be betting on with Daniel Jones. He only threw for ten touchdowns last season and 11 the previous season. During his rookie season in 2019 with an offensive-minded head coach, he threw for 24 touchdowns though.
Jones may throw for more touchdowns this season in a wide receiver-friendly offense, but it doesn’t necessarily mean he will play better for the long-term success of this franchise. If there is any consistency or if this offense looks better this season because of coaching, Daniel Jones will throw for more touchdown passes.
The pick: Over 21.5 touchdowns (-112)
Daniel Jones Rushing Yards: Over 325.5 yards (-112)/Under 325.5 yards (-112)
This is a very reasonable betting number once again for Jones. Last season, he rushed for 298 yards. In 2020, he rushed for 423 yards, and in 2019, he rushed for 279 yards. However, Jones may not be rushing a lot in this year’s Giants offense. He is going to get some chances to run with the football, but the odds are that the team will want him passing with the football more than making plays with his running ability.
Daniel Jones has been prone to injury in his career and the last thing the Giants need in a make-it-or-break-it season is for him to get injured on a run. We will see what happens but the odds are he doesn’t rush much this season.
The pick: Under 325.5 yards (-112)
