Fact Checked by Thomas Leary

The New York Giants (7-2) and New York Jets (6-3) hope to keep their promising playoff projections on the right path with two remaining games in November, because once December comes around it could be an issue for those making money off the teams' performances on NY sports betting apps

With the NFL heading towards the last month of the season, utilized to find the records of every NFL team in December over the last five years. Note that all teams didn’t participate in the same number of games. 

Let’s just say both teams have some work to do next month, despite their promising starts.

Since 2017, the Giants and the Jets both have dismal records for December, each posting an 8-15 record (34.78%-win percentage), tied with the Houston Texans, for 26th worst overall in the NFL in that span.

Should make for an interesting December for sports betting in New York.
