The New York Giants are 0-2 SU and ATS on the season, but they’ve finally decided to give rookie Daniel Jones under center for his first NFL start. I think the change of quarterback will give the Giants enough of an energy boost to keep this close.
Jones completed 29-of-34 passes for 416 yards, two TDs, and no interceptions during preseason, and I think he’ll match up well against a Bucs defense that is vulnerable against the pass. The Giants offense has not been bad mind you; they rank 6th for total offense with 420 yards per game and star running back Saquon Barkley, NFL’s second-leading rusher with 227 yards, will take a lot of pressure off Jones.
As for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, they’re in a letdown spot following a 20-14 upset win at Carolina in the Week 2. They didn’t look nearly as good in their season-opening double-digit home loss to San Francisco, and Jameis Winston has a 59 percent completion rate with 2 TDs against 3 INTs.
The Giants are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 as a road underdog while the Bucs regularly disappoint as a home favorite. I’m well happy to take the points on the visitors in this contest.
