With the 2016 NFL season just a couple weeks away, it is time to check in with the gambling odds on what their predictions are. This year, it appears the New York Giants have a chance for the Most Valuable Player award with Eli Manning as per the odds given by Sports Betting Dime. Currently, Manning's odds are listed as 15/1 to win the MVP award. That makes him tied for sixth overall alongside with Tom Brady. Leading this year's batch would be none other than Aaron Rodgers with 13/2 odds of winning it himself. While there are five higher ranked quarterbacks so far, this is the highest recognition Manning has had for the award in quite some time. Here is the full list of players ahead of Manning.

Aaron Rodgers, Packers: 13/2
Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers: 7/1
Cam Newton, Panthers: 8/1
Russell Wilson, Seahawks: 10/1
Andrew Luck, Colts: 12/1
Tom Brady, Patriots: 15/1
Eli Manning, Giants: 15/1

In a separate category, the website still thinks Manning is among league leaders in throwing interceptions. Manning is third overall in the category with 7/1 odds to finish with the most interceptions thrown. Only Blake Bortles and Ryan Fitzpatrick are ahead of him.

The only other Giant player involved with these odds is Sterling Shepard.  He is currently third overall for the rookie offensive player of the year award with his odds listed as 12/1. Ezekiel Elliott is unsurprisingly in the lead, with Derrick Henry taking second.

What do you think Giants fans? Are these odds fair to our players?
