Former Eagles HC Doug Pederson considered the favorite for the New York Giants head coaching job?

A year ago, Doug Pederson was tanking a Week 17 game so the New York Giants couldn’t make the playoffs.

A year later, could Pederson be the actual head coach of the Giants.

Several oddsmakers in Las Vegas have Pederson as the favorite to be the next head coach of the Giants.

Pederson has already interviewed for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Chicago Bears head coaching jobs. It’s unclear if the Giants will interview Pederson since they are also looking for a general manager too and will have the next GM pick the head coach.

But for some reason, the oddsmakers out in Vegas see the former Super Bowl winning head coach of the Eagles coaching against his former rival.
