Can the New York Giants get their 2020 season off on the right foot? Oddsmakers don’t think so, with the Giants listed as 4.5-point underdogs for next Monday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Giants, of course, are starting over with rookie head coach Joe Judge after winning only 12 games over the past three seasons.

The Steelers went 8-8 a season ago, a year that saw star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger play only two games before needing surgery on his throwing elbow. Roethlisberger is back and there are expectations that if his elbow holds up the Steelers could make a run at their first playoff berth since 2017.
