Giants’ odds to win Super Bowl 53 increase — a little

The 2018 NFL season gets underway officially on Thursday night , but Bovada is already thinking about the future, all the way to Super Bowl 53. The Las Vegas-based sportsbook released its latest Super Bowl odds on Thursday, and the odds have improved—just a little—for the New York Giants.The Giants opened the offseason with 50/1 odds to win it all, dipping briefly to 75/1 following this spring’s NFL Draft. But now their odds are 40/1, on par with the Carolina Panthers and Tennessee Titans.The odds are better for the Giants when it comes to the NFC Championship game. Bovada has them at 16/1 odds to be conference champions this year. And they have 5/1 odds of being NFC East champions. The reigning Super Bowl champions, the Philadelphia Eagles, have 17/2 odds of hoisting the Lombardi Trophy for two years in a row Color Rush Riley Dixon Jersey , and are the favorites to win both the NFC Championship (11/2) and the NFC East (2/3). The New England Patriots, meanwhile, are the overall favorites to win Super Bowl 53, with 11/2 odds.The Giants haven’t reached the postseason since the 2016 season, when they were felled in the Wild Card round, and it’s been since 2011 that the Giants have been atop the NFC East. That was also the last time the Giants won the Super Bowl. Thus, it’s not hard to understand Bovada’s reasoning throughout the offseason and why the money hasn’t yet tipped in the Giants’ favor. It’s also not helping that the NFC as a whole appears to be the stronger conference heading into the 2018 season Color Rush Landon Collins Jersey , helping to depress the Giants’ odds of overall success.Giants injury news, 9/27: Olivier Vernon practices for second straight day Olivier Vernon participated in a second straight practice for the New York Giants on Thursday, leading to the possibility that he could make his season debut Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.“It’s progress, so that’s a good sign,” Vernon said before Thursday’s practice.Vernon, the Giants best pass rusher, has yet to play because of a high ankle sprain suffered during a preseason practice. Coach Pat Shurmur said Thursday that Vernon looked “better” during Wednesday’s practice than he had a week ago. “Again we’re hopeful (he will play) Youth Sterling Shepard Jersey ,” Shurmur said. “We’ll see.”Vernon stretched and did some individual work.“You’re talking about a very special player playing on the edge,” defensive coordinator James Bettcher said of Vernon. “We’d love to have him and when we do get him back whether that’s this week or in the future we’ll be excited to have him back.”Cornerback Ali Apple (groin) stretched, but once again did no work beyond that.Defensive tackle Damon Harrison, wide receiver Cody Latimer and running back Jonathan Stewart were all either riding bikes or working with trainers at the beginning of practice.“It’s super-important that we have all of our best players on the field,” Shurmur said. The absence of Harrison, the massive run-stopping nose tackle, might raise alarm bells. Shurmur Alec Ogletree Jersey , though, doesn’t sound concerned.“I wouldn’t worry about Snacks,” Shurmur said. Could Harrison play without practicing?“I think he’s one of those guys, he’s veteran enough where he could possibly get that done,” the coach said.Week 6 Injury ReportPlayerPositionInjuryTues.Wed.Game StatusPlayerPositionInjuryTues.Wed.Game Status
