Having the ability to bet on which NFL franchise in New York will have more, or less, losses at season's end is a definitive sign that this is a lost season for both the Jets and the Giants.

Well, I guess it depends on how you look at FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL prop special, which allows you to bet on whether the New York Giants or New York Jets will finish with more regular season wins by the end of the year. 

There's certainly something to be said about any team that finds itself on the underdog side of a prop bet against the Jets when it comes to winning more games. But the 1-5 Giants have earned this distinction through six weeks, coming in not one, but two full wins behind the 3-3 Jets.


You could also view this bet as one that boils down to whether you have more faith in a rapidly-declining Eli Manning for the Giants, or a steadily-improving Sam Darnold for the Jets.

Some might argue this bet could be made on any two teams in the NFL, but it certainly can't be a good sign for either team's future outlook this season.
