While Manning is a heavy favorite to start the year as the Giants’ starting QB, additional odds imply the tenth Super Bowl MVP will not be able to maintain the job for very long.
BetOnline is supplying an enticing -140 line which Jones may have more passing yards than Manning when all is done and said.
There are reasons to think that might be the situation. The Giants took a great deal of heat for choosing Jones so large in the draft, and so the team will be eager to show the naysayers wrong.

However, Manning’s touchdown manufacturing skyrocketed within the past three years throwing 19 and 21 at 2017 and 2018, respectively.
Jones has much more upside to throw touchdowns, which makes the -120 price worth carrying.

Manning has held a 13.6 interception average during the previous five decades, but if complete somewhere in the assortment of 18-20 with this Giants team.
That ought to be sufficient to open the doorway for Jones, but by then the damage will have already been completed.

Manning will without question be the Giants’ starting quarterback to begin the 2019 NFL season and ought to continue to keep the occupation for at least 7-8 weeks.
However, the doorway will likely be open for Jones to take more if the Giants are still winless or have a lousy record by Week 7 or 8.
There is far more significance in choosing Jones in +110 to begin more games this season.
Head coach Pat Shurmur will search for the smallest of windows to officially begin the Daniel Jones age, handing the reigns to the beginner QB whilst at the same time utilizing Manning as a mentor.
