What to Know
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will hit the road for the second straight week as they head to MetLife Stadium at 8:15 p.m. ET Monday. They won’t have the home-field advantage, but they do enjoy a 12.5-point advantage in the spread.
Tampa Bay took their contest against the Las Vegas Raiders last week by a conclusive 45-20 score. QB Tom Brady continued his habit of dropping crazy stat lines, passing for four TDs and 369 yards on 45 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown.
Meanwhile, the New York Giants had victory within their grasp but couldn’t quite capture it last Thursday as the squad lost 22-21 to the Philadelphia Eagles. A silver lining for the Giants was the play of QB Daniel Jones, who passed for two TDs and 187 yards on 30 attempts in addition to picking up 92 yards on the ground. Jones ended up with a passer rating of 134.40.
Tampa Bay is the favorite in this one, with an expected 12.5-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
Tampa Bay’s victory lifted them to 5-2 while New York’s loss dropped them down to 1-6. Tampa Bay has been dynamite on the offensive side of the ball, averaging 31.71 points per game. We’ll see if New York can find some way to disarm them.
