Our friends over at Draft Kings Nation, an SB Nation affiliate, have used multiple methods to assess 2021 NFL strength of schedule. Let’s see how that impacts the New York Giants.
Using projected opponent win totals (147.5), the Giants check in with the 19th-most difficult schedule. Not bad. Using 2020 winning percentage of opponents (.474) only seven NFL teams have an easier schedule. using Super Bowl odds of opponents, the Giants rank 15th in the league.
Put it together and DK Nation says only nine teams have an easier 2021 schedule than the Giants. That’s good. What isn’t good as DK Sportsbook putting the over/under for Giants’ victories at 7.
I’m honestly not quite sure what to make of any of that. Just figured I would point it out.
