Are you buying the 3-6 New York Giants as true playoff contenders yet? The Giants' odds of becoming the first 0-6 team in NFL history to make the playoffs remain long, but Las Vegas oddsmakers are increasingly showing some faith in the Giants.
In this week's odds from Bovada (www.Bovada.lv, Twitter: @BovadaLV) the Giants are listed with 50-1 odds of winning the 2014 Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium. The Giants were 75-1 a week ago.
As for just making the playoffs, Bovada has the Giants with 5-1 odds of winning the NFC East. The Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles, tied atop the NFC East standings at 5-5, are given 13-10 odds. The Washington Redskins are 8-1.
