Super Bowl 51 odds: New York Giants are 25-1

Giants are second betting choice in NFC East

NFL: Handoff to Houston-Press Conference Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

With NFL training camps a couple of weeks from opening, oddsmakers from Bovada are listing the New York Giants with 25-1 odds of winning Super Bowl 51.

The only team in the NFC East given better odds than the Giants is the Dallas Cowboys, who are 18-1. Bovada lists the defending NFC East champion Washington Redskins at 50-1 and the Philadelphia Eagles at 66-1.

Despite the four-game suspension Tom Brady will serve due to Deflategate, the New England Patriots remain the overall favorite at 6-1, followed by the Green Bay Packers at 17-2.

Along that same line, ESPN asked its NFC East writers who would win the division. None chose the Giants. Three of the four chose the Cowboys to go from worst to first. The only one who did not was Redskins writer John Keim, who took Washington, the team he covers.

What do you think, Giants fans? Does being the second betting choice in the division make sense? Do you even care?
