LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - Despite the possibility of not having their star pass rusher on the field for the start of the season, the Giants' 2016 Super Bowl odds remain unchanged in wake of Jason Pierre-Paul's hand injury.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Giants' 2016 Super Bowl odds are currently 28/1, same as they were before the fourth of July weekend when Pierre-Paul accidentally injured his hand in a firework accident. This is yet another example of how oddsmakers are unfazed by injuries that don't involve a quarterback. Had it been Eli Manning who mishandled a firework, then you would have seen New York's Super Bowl odds completely come off the board until oddsmakers figured out how to handle the situation.

On Wednesday JPP had his right index finger amputated in order to minimize the damage to his hand following the accident. The defensive end is expected to play this season, although he could be placed on the NFI list, which would cost him the first six games of 2015.

Despite reporting withdrawing a long-term contract, the Giants have no plans to move on from Pierre-Paul. They fully intend to keep JPP at his $14.8 million franchise number, presumably so they can see if he'll still be effective despite the injury. This will be a huge year for Pierre-Paul to show that he can still play at a high level and land himself a long-term contract, whether that's in New York or elsewhere.
