Now that Daniel Jones is the starting quarterback for the New York Giants, everyone is wondering what is next for Eli Manning. At 38 years old, it’s possible that his career in the NFL is basically over.
Manning’s legacy in New York will never be forgotten due to his two Super Bowl rings. On the flip side, the former No. 1 overall pick has struggled mightily the past four years.
With the Giants ready to move past the Manning era, the former Pro Bowler could potentially demand a trade. And yet, the early betting odds indicate that he’ll remain in New York.
According to BetOnline, the current betting odds are against a trade going down. However, if a trade does happen it would produce a nice payout for those willing to bet on Manning being shipped out of town.
BetOnline also has strong odds that hint at Manning retiring after this season.
Here are the odds involving Manning:
Will Eli Manning be traded during the regular season?
Will he retire after this season?

There are several teams that can use help at quarterback, which includes the Jacksonville Jaguars, Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Jets.
Considering the rich history between Manning and the Giants, it’s hard to envision him suit up for another team. After all, Vegas odds seem to support that narrative.
