It hasn't been a great season for New York's three NFL teams. The Giants, Jets and Bill have a combined 8-21 record with the two AFC East squads tied for last place at 3-7. And it's gotten so bad that FanDuel Sportsbook is allowing bettors to wager on which New York team ends up with the most regular season wins.

This isn't one of those bets that you want to be a part of if you're the team, unlike another special where you can take the Patriots and Rams versus the field to win the Super Bowl. 


The Giants have the worst odds of the bunch, but could create a dead heat at 3-7 with a win over the also-not-good Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Met Life Stadium on Sunday. After that Big Blue has three more home games against the Chicago Bears, Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys and three road contests at Philadelphia, Washington and Indianapolis. There's not an easy win on that schedule, especially for a team vying for the No. 1 pick in next year's NFL Draft.

The Jets play the Bills in Week 14 in Buffalo, which could be the deciding factor in this dead heat bet. What that means is when you have a multi-outcome prop where two winners can tie, then half the stake is applied to the selection at the full odds and the other half is lost. This is something that's very important to any bettor as you can essentially lose half your bet with a tie.

That Week 14 contest could be the Jets' only shot at another win since they take on the New England Patriots twice, the Houston Texans and Green Bay Packers at home and the Tennessee Titans on the road. That's all bad news for potential Gang Green bettors, despite those 2-to-1 odds.

And as for the Bills, who are on a bye this week along with the rest of the AFC East, they have four home games against the Jags, Lions, Dolphins and Jets and two divisional games at Miami and New England. With a slate like that, one win by any of the three New York teams can and will be the difference here.

While there's no predicting if or when any of these teams will win again, at least you have the opportunity to bet on it and make tuning in to watch these three New York football teams entertaining again.
