Giants vs. Bucs Free Pick
Can the Buccaneers build off the momentum they created last week in their win over the Falcons by beating the Giants today at 4:05PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Bucs are 2.5-point home underdogs versus the Giants while the total currently sits at 50 points after the number opened at 47.
New York enters play with a 4-4 record and is 4-3-1 against the spread, while Tampa Bay is 3-4 straight up and 4-3 at the betting window this season. The Giants are 2-1 ATS on the road this year while the Bucs are 1-2 ATS at home.
Defense will be optional in this one. The Giants gave up 52 points last week on the road to the Saints in a game in which they completely left receiver Marques Colston uncovered for a touchdown and let Drew Brees do whatever he wanted in a 511-yard, seven-touchdown passing performance. The Bucs are coming off a huge win in Atlanta but the Falcons moved the ball at will against Tampa throughout the game. The Falcons' issue was that they kept turning the ball over in Buccaneer territory so assuming the Giants turn their opportunities into scores, this game should sail over the total. As a defensive-minded coach, Lovie Smith may want to close his eyes for this one.
