The New York Giants and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will match up in NFL Week 2 activity on Sunday.

The Giants enter this one at 0-2 so far. New York fell 35-17 to the Cowboys in the opener, then dropped 28-14 to the Bills in Week 2.

In the Buffalo loss, New York QB Eli Manning posted 250 yards with one TD and two picks, and Saquon Barkley had 107 yards and a score rushing. Bennie Fowler posted 51 yards on five catches as well.

Over on the Tampa side, they’re 1-1 this season. The Buccaneers posted a 31-17 loss to the 49ers to open the season up, but then got a 20-14 win over the Panthers in Week 2.

In the Carolina win, Bucs QB Jameis Winston had 208 yards and a score, and Peyton Barber had 82 yards on the ground with a TD. Chris Godwin did most of the work receiving with 121 yards and a score from eight catches.

The Giants are 5-0 ATS in their last five on grass and 5-1 ATS in their last six after an ATS loss. New York is 4-1 ATS in their last five games in Week 3 and 1-4 ATS in their last five overall.

Meanwhile, the Bucs are 3-0-1 ATS versus a team with a losing record and 4-1 ATS in their last five overall. Tampa is 0-6 ATS in their last six in Week 3 and 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight versus the NFC.

Well, this game is notable since it marks the debut of the Daniel Jones era in New York, and we’ll get to see what he looks like in an actual game scenario. This is probably a good place for him to start, as Tampa is okay but not super threatening. Still, at less than a touchdown I’m going to stick on the Bucs.

Pick:
Tampa Bay Buccaneers -6
