Giants and Jets Pave Way For Three-Sport New York Rivalry Week

Because of a rare scheduling quirk, this week will have an extraordinary number of gentlemen bets and wagers between friends as the three major sports that are currently in season will have rivalry games from teams in the New York and New Jersey areas.

It starts in the NHL, when the New York Rangers play a road game against New York Islanders on Wednesday, December 2nd at the Barclays Center. The NBA takes the baton from there, as the New York Knicks host the Brooklyn Nets on Friday, December 4th at Madison Square Garden. The trifecta completes on Sunday, December 6th, when the New York Giants host the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium at 1:00 PM ET.

Below is a list of how the events stack up to each other on the secondary market, with information provided by

12/6/2015 | New York Giants vs. New York Giants | MetLife Stadium | Average Price: $481.78 | Get-in Price: $224

12/2/2015 | New York Islanders vs. New York Rangers | Barclays Center | Average Price: $170.54 | Get-in Price: $50

12/4/2015 | New York Knicks vs. Brooklyn Nets | Madison Square Garden | Average Price: $237.51 | Get-in Price: $71

Giants tickets are the most expensive of the three events and is easily the most “important” with records and timing factoring in. The Giants fell to 5-6 after Sunday’s loss to Washington and may have a large hole to climb out of with another loss. The Jets are in the thick of the AFC Wild Card picture, but at 6-5 still have plenty of work to do to reach the NFL’s second season. With the other leagues still in the first quarter of their seasons, timing is the main factor for what makes the Giants and Jets clash an important one.

The Knicks game against the Nets is the second most expensive of the three games with an average ticket price of $237.51 with a get-in price of $71 for entrance into Madison Square Garden. It’ll be the first time the Nets and rookie Kristaps Porzingis square off, which should have The Garden crowd pretty jacked up come Friday night.

Lastly, the Islanders host the Rangers with an average ticket price of $170.54 and a get-in price of $50 as six points currently separate the two teams in the Metropolitan division.

With New York being the center of attention of the sports world for this week, fans of either team outside of the metro area can book a New York flight through to get to any or all of this week’s New York rivalry games.
