Betting operator DraftKings is offering an odds boost on New York Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones throwing an interception during his preseason debut against the New York Jets on Thursday night.
The sportsbook is offering +330 (a $100 bet returns $330) if he throws an interception during the game and -500 if Jones does not, with an odds boost to +500 if he does throw at least one pick.
Jones has been a polarizing presence since Giants general manager David Gettleman surprised many by selecting the former Duke star with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
“Skeptics of the Giants’ No. 1 pick – and there are many – have until the game kicks off to place their bets and cash in if Jones does what they’re expecting him to do many times this season,” the company said, per SBC Americas.
Jones was selected with the expectation of eventually replacing Eli Manning. It is unknown if – or how much – the 38-year-old Manning will play Thursday night, but Jones is expected to receive extended playing time.
DraftKings is offering a -100 prop bet on whether Jones throws for more or less than 99.5 yards.
The Giants are +132 to win the game, with the over/under set at 35.5 points. PointsBet has the Giants +135 with the spread set at Giants +3 and the over/under at 35.
FanDuel is offering an odds boost of +380 from +300 on a $50 max bet if the Giants win and the teams combine for more than 33.5 total points.
